Anyone with experience with them? You can sign a release form, and they are looking for projects at the max in the eight million range. I would love to know, the look really talented!:)

Re: footprint productions
 
I went through two extensive rewrites of my action thriller with the creative executive at Footprint Features last summer. He said the owner and the rest of the company was very excited about the project. Shortly after I turned in the second rewrite, the CE told me the owner and he were extremely happy with the script and were ready to talk about moving ahead. A week later, the CE left the company for another opportunity. The project died on the vine. I had a number of conversations with the new CE who succeeded him. She was very weak in development and had several half-baked notes. I executed a few of them. She was happy with the new version. Months passed. I nudged with emails every so often. Finally, she scheduled a phone call with me and the owner. He was very effusive about how great the new script is, but that it's not quite what the company is looking for. As a consolation, he offered to send the script to a producer friend who supposedly was looking for an action thriller like this one. I said I would appreciate it. That was two months ago. I never heard another thing.

Bottom line, the script is now much better and the company has no rights to it. Frankly, they're like most other prodco's of that size. They have no funding. They simply stay busy developing scripts that are never going to be produced.

That being said, you should give them a try. Just keep your eyes open.

To clarify, is this Footprint Pictures or Footprint Productions? I've dealt with Pictures. Just wondering.

I think it's Features. Footprint Features.

Did you at least get paid for your rewrites?
