Re: Too many emails

Worth quoting for the value of insight. Solid advice on queries if I've ever seen it.
I follow a similar path; discern which companies, individuals are the best fit for my script, then target those...

Re: Family/Children Scripts?

^^ Yes Hallmark seems the obvious, though you need an agent to even be considered.

I've read Scott Kirkpatrick's articles about gold genres etc. He works at DRG now I think. Contacting these...

Re: Take on contacting Circle of Confusion et al

Thanks to everyone for the feedback. I'd heard good things about Circle of Confusion but I wanted to get more objective accounts.

I'll follow up.

Re: Netflix plans 80 movies in 2018

@socalwriter1 ^^^^

I also had that impression. But low budget is accessible for beginners, isn't it? Connections do mean something but I know too many who spent lots of $$$$ on dozens of script...

Re: Chesler Perlmutter

:( :(

Not very encouraging. Your reply reminds me of a review I read about Stage32 services, where the writer realized the exec paid to assess her synopsis or whatever hadn't read it. I also asked...

Re: Stage 32 pitches?

I have an account on Stage 32. Thankfully I never bought any of their 'educational' seminars or pitch sessions. I carefully examined their products, researched their offering, read their boards and...

Re: Dennis Palumbo

Thanks. Insightful and so true. Lots of writers in therapy, huh? Makes sense I suppose.

Bit about the art of screenplay writing is gold. There is little room for errors and you need to capture...

Re: What's Hallmark, Lifetime Paying?

Thanks. Yes I heard the same; Christmas movies bring in decent ratings. I actually haven't tried yet. I have something so I was wondering if it would be worth it to engage them.

I don't believe you...

Re: Production Company for SyFy - Chesler Perlmutter?

Thanks. I haven't got around to doing a detailed check. Chesler is a Canadian company who does projects for Hallmark and other channels. They do a lot of those Christmas movies. They are listed on...

Re: What's Hallmark, Lifetime Paying?

Would that be Chesler Perlmutter? They accept stuff for a lot of cable and regular network channels too. Would think that they needed new fresh talent. So maybe I am right -- it is nepotism or having...

Production Company for SyFy - Chesler Perlmutter?

Is Chesler Perlmutter the only one/most popular? The listing here for Syfy doesn't have an updated list of TV or feature deals. The site itself doesn't seem to have a dedicated section for...

Re: What's Hallmark, Lifetime Paying?

I wasn't sure about Hallmark accepting newbies. I had my eye on trying them because I have a good bit of features completed, and I'm now starting to get my work out there. I have one script that is...

Thanks Catcon. I do believe I have IT's free newsletter, but I can't recall purchasing something from them.

Thanks for the Inktip advice. Honestly I am wary of a site where you need to post your work and then wait...and wait...and wait. I much prefer to search and seek out producers and...

Re: Shorts?

@ DPP

Thanks, that's basically what I thought. I didn't expect to get a listing here for that to be honest; it's not why I got a sub.
I have full length scripts and with the brief scan I did, I...

Hello. So I am finally getting around to using my subscription on DDP.

Re: Company w/no IMDB credits & NDA?

I agree, it's just that I'm a bit wary. I don't expect to get a lot of money but that isn't my main focus anyway.

Re: Amanda Script Gal still doing coverage?

A better question is:

WHY are you using Script Gal?

You must not have a lot of experience. MOST of the "services" available out there (especially online) for naive screenwriters consist of people...
