Re: How To Package and Attach Actors to a Script??

I went to Filmspecific.com, but it looked like their package deal for $2500 was for movies that were already made and seeking distribution. Am I wrong on this?

How To Package and Attach Actors to a Script??

I'm wondering how hard this is to do? I already have a cast list and a director in mind. I've had a couple of people tell me I can get funding for my script if it's already packaged. If it comes down...

Re: Entertainment Attorneys Who Submit Scripts

Thanks, but I'm confused whether this means I should go through them or not. Someone also sent me a PM saying there's several attorneys out there that do this for $35, but gives me no specifics. Last...

Re: How To Get a Producer?
