Here's an antidote to Script Shark
and all that. Screenplays Wanted
lets production companies put the word out what they're looking for.
You can, of course, read the site to see if anyone's looking for what you've already written. A cleverer way to read the site is to see what, overall, people are looking for. Bear in mind there's some self-selection here. Your top production companies, already deluged with scripts, are not posting here, I would suppose. But it does tell you what some of the market's like.
Some of the entries make me wonder, though. E.g. "We are currently accepting screenplay submissions of the supernatural genre ONLY. No blood, vampires, zombies, werewolves etc." Then what are
you looking for???
I thought much the same as you did on this. Since it deals in a lot of the stuff I plow through on a regular basis (movies made for a $1M or less) it looked like a good call to link up.
"We are currently accepting screenplay submissions of the supernatural genre ONLY. No blood, vampires, zombies, werewolves etc." Then what are you looking for???
They mean scripts of stories like "The Grudge" or "White Noise". Supernatural as opposed to Horror.
Hmmm... went to the site, first thing I saw was an ad by Rob Gallagher (who doesn't come off too well in Wordplay postings). Scroll down, next is an add which includes the line "You must write to industry standards and be finished in a recognised computer programme. "
Hmmm ... think I'll be passing here. The coverage I got back from Script Shark seems more professional somehow...
