Supplying kick-ass content isn't enough, apparently.

Right!?

I had a meeting at a prodco (think: superhero franchises) and I straight up asked them "You guys got any OWAs you're looking to fill?" They're like "Nope! We're looking for IP just like you..."

WTF? Then why am I here? And secondly, how the fukk can I compete with the IP you guys can get??

if it'll make you feel any better, i listened to a podcast with a top manager and he said that producers do the same to them. they get ghosted, too. all we expect is for them to be ****ing human.

Right?! Like, they've got a) an entire apparatus built around finding IP, and b) the resources to pursue what they find. I am... a dude with Amazon Prime. When I DO find cool IP, the response is usually disappointment that it's old / not a best-seller / "hard." Uh, yeah.
