Default Learn to READ before you blog


I normally wouldn’t respond to your email but in your case I will make an exception.
If you could read as well as you can write, you would have read nothing in our Finder Agreement or any other correspondence to you that even remotely states that we would act as your agent. In fact, there is a disclaimer to that fact in paragraph 6 of the Finder Agreement.

The agreement that you received is a “Finder Agreement”, not an Agency Agreement, not a Management Agreement, not a Producer Agreement.

READ Ref: Webster’s New World Dictionary - “Finder, a person who, for a fee initiates a business deal between others”

The writer blogs that you have read and I’m sure you also have contribute to, are written by individuals who have no impact on du Jour Films or anyone else in this business other than their select group of disgruntle writers.

You may feel free to add this email-letter to your blogs.

You are as very talented writer with a good script and I sincerely wish you success in getting a deal.

I would suggest that you find a good Literary Agent or get your script to someone who can get it read by someone with the power to green light it.

All the best,

Robert L. Miller, CEO
du Jour Films and Entertainment



I read your Agreement and I have to take issue with your business practices on several accounts.

A legitimate agency would not charge a fee up front. Legitimate firms typically receive 10% upon the sale of a script.

The WGA-W recommends that writers NOT pay up front for agency services.

Your company hasn't produced anything (no track record).

The writer blogs are very negative about your firm.

I am disappointed that you have wasted my time but at least you didn't get my money. Please find a legitimate way to make an honest buck and stop preying on people who are working hard to do things right in this business.

I steps.

It's like learning to post before starting a thread.

The best way out is always through. Robert Frost

This topic has been talked to death before. It was closed then and it will be closed now. Move on.
Never let the competition know what you're thinking... and never tell the unseen masses your story idea.
