Dear big shot movie person,
"I see dead people."
Title: THE SIXTH SENSE
When a psychiatrist struggles to help and heal a boy who believes he sees dead people, the boy ends up helping to heal him so he can move on...he finally realizes that he is actually, dead.
(perhaps a brief sentence or two about you, what you've published or whatever, you are actually a psychiatrist, etc...or just leave this part blank if isn't going to help pitch your story.)
I'd like to send for your consideration.
your contact info
Sorry, I probably should have said that when I query a manager I also include a logline and a couple of other brief sentences keeping it way to the point.
When I'm querying a prodco, I'm not looking for representation so I was just wondering how people phrase it - I'm guessing with some variation of "I think you'll like this, I'd love for you to read it."?
