I thought that was cool, that way when you are pitching a new script, at the bottom of your query E-mail you can always post your website and let any managers/producers check out some of your other work should they be interested in what you already sent them.
It basically says "look, I'm not a one trick pony".
I would not post your whole scripts, just a synopsis and a few page sample for each. It won't help you get "discovered" on its own, but it can help a manager/producer sway one way if he sees you have various works under your belt.
Yeah, this is a really good idea. I ended up doing something similar to this, which you can see here (http://www.markfeinsod.com/scripts.html)
. The old stuff is posted in its entirety, but I just put up the first 10 pages of the only recent script that's there. It's for a TV pilot that I wrote in 2009, had optioned in 2010 and recently did a major revision on.
Open to any thoughts or ideas on the site.
