It took me 7 years to obtain an agent...
and 10 to get a film made.
There are two elements to
getting a screenplay sold:
The quality and marketability of the screenplay
credibility you project so that industry people will agree to read it.
To be brutally honest, although I really believed that
my early works were ready to be professionally presented it turned out that
there were elements that had high quality, but overall the level wasn’t
there. And, then in terms of credibility…it’s
very hard to deliver this when you
don’t have a Los Angeles based agent and any
produced credits…the kind that are meaningful with known actors and 7 figure
So, I did the following:
Spent thousands of dollars on private coaching
Spent thousands of dollars on trips to Los
Angeles for seminars, pitchmarts,
Wrote about 20 screenplays over the first seven
Well, it finally paid off and while I’m far from the
biggest fish in the sea, I do have a….
Real film made that I served as a
writer/executive producer on
I’ve got a well established WGA agent in Beverly
Partial list of sales, options and development deals:
Long rolodex of producers with credits who know
my work and will take my calls and inquiries.
The producer who actually sold my first script started
hiring me to do rewrites of other writer’s works that had potential that needed
to be upgraded before he could present them to industry.
Eventually, as I gained more and more contacts and
started selling a number of projects I started realizing that perhaps I could
do this independently.
Our company now not only looks to produce in-house developed scripts, but also is willing to represent quality feature screenplays from other writers.
