Do anyone know any urban production or film companies that take submissions?

Try www.Maverickentertainment.cc (http://www.Maverickentertainment.cc) I've worked on several of their urban dramas, they are always looking. Also they are located in Fl. Let me know how it goes.

Good Luck,

Hedonism --

I just learned that Maverick are on production shutdown at the moment. Which is quite unusual for them.

May I IM you with a Q?

This board's very own Mark Hernandez has posted threads looking for Urban scripts. It was a few months back, so I don't know if he's still looking for that genre. His handle is CrescendoEG for the newbies. Give him a search.

Mosaic does only urban pictures.

Just to clarify for anybody who wants to pursue--there are two Mosaics. I've actually dealt with the one--Mosaic Media Group, which is a mgt./prod. co. that has done Elf and reps Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Craig Kilborn, etc.

Just a heads up to query the right Mosaic. I think that one might actually be based in New York.

Does Maverick pay writers for their screenplays or screenplays they selected for production? The reason I ask this is on thier release form they say the writer shall not recieve any compensation for this submission. Anyone had any personal dealings or deals with Maverick to share with me?

all that means is that you don't get paid just for sending them the script.

I'd give Maverick a good few months before contacting them - and when I did recently, they told me that are in production hiatus - which basically means they ain't doing anything too soon. A glance of their work-in-progress at imdb.com pretty much spells out that they are very busy for the next few years. Which doesn't sound good for developing and purchasing new material :(
