Re: Best way to approach a producer?
My experience in this is that no matter how much work/time/effort you have put into developing the project it will still fall flat if it is not an exceptional script AND exactly what they are looking for AT THE TIME... timing is critical.
Connections & presentation to get the read-- brilliant script to get the meeting and only then will all the time and effort invested in developing the project possibly pay off... that is unless they want to option it outright then all of that work will be merely producer 'practice'.
If I were you I would make a list of 10-15 producers who have done similar stuff in the past and fine tune your pitch to get read at as many as you can.
