Default Re: Manager or Agent First?

In this case it appears you are using the term 'collaborate' to mean you want someone to write a script for you but you either don't want to pay them or more likely, can't afford to pay them.

In terms of Oscar winning/worthy writers, they get paid to write scripts. It's a necessary part of the 'collaborative' movie making process.

Let's say you have a great idea for building a house. And you share your great idea with the professionals who are actually capable of building the house, you still have to pay them to build it. Calling it a 'collaboration' because you shared your great idea, will not get your house built for free.

Another thing to keep in mind, 'ideas' cannot be copyrighted. That means, if you come up with a great idea, and someone else writes it, the person who wrote it, owns the copyright on the script and you own nothing...unless of course you hire/pay them to write the script for you.
