Default Re: LA Agents: The Bumper list of Boutiques

I have 40 envelopes, 40 stamps and 40 postcards for replies. Which 40 agents/managers should I send query letters to to see if they want to read my unsolicited screenplay? It's a raunchy sex-comedy with heart, the closest thing I can think of out there like it is "Knocked Up." PLEASE HELP!! Thanks in advance...

These are the numbers from my perspective. In the the last 10 days I have sent about 400 queries for my unsolicited "raunchy comedy with heart". 9 requests to read so far.

So, doing the math....unless you have the most kick-ass query letter of all time, you might get 1 or 2 hits on 40 letters. I suggest you open it up and query hundreds of managers and agents. Do some research and query everyone you can. You need to play the numbers and cast a wide net.

I suggest saving your stamps and envelopes and using email to query. If you search the DDP board, you'll find numerous posts on this subject as well as examples of efficient e-queries. IMHO, equeries should be short, cordial, and to the point.

if you want email addresses of managers/agents, again you can search this board, search the interweb, and if sign up with IMDB-Pro. I think they have a 2 week trial as well.

best of luck

Yeah..forgot to mention that. Mine were all e-queries. Email is the way to go so as to not cost a fortune and increase your response odds.

This list is also quite good, and over three years old.

Can we have a newer one?
