Red face Re: LA Agents: The Bumper list of Boutiques

Nothing on this topic since Sep-09, so why don't I ask a question that I haven't been able to work out myself despite some prolific Google and investigative skills.

Evidently there'd been some split of the long-standing Shapiro-Lichtman firm, into "Marty Shapiro Management" and "The Lichtman Group".

I queried the former (off of IMDBpro) and got a terse "not taking new clients" -- isn't it great at least when they take the time to respond?!

However, I've not been able to find a contact for the latter, especially Mark Lichtman, recommended elsewhere here on DDP, except an address for him (probably old) on everyonewhosanyone.com.

I hesitate to use that address because the members of the combined firm are now in their separate firms.

I'd assume they're pointing those old email to the correct place, if you know how email and web domains work.

Not only that, they may have let go of that domain (lichtman-shapiro.com) and it may now be held by somebody up-to-no-good, or a domain hoarder. When you do a "whois" you can't tell. So any email sent to it may end up nowhere or, worse, in the wrong hands.

Anyway, I've tried my best but haven't found Mark Lichtman's email or web domain/site.

Sigh.

Off to try LinkedIn, I suppose. He's there... except these bigshots never seem to log in and check their in-boxes so the mail just "expires" after 7 days.

Got a bad case of "writing withdrawal" going on, so I think I better just quit this marketing crap for the rest of the day and write a synopsis or edit a scene or something.

Always cheers me up.

I received the same response in 2004. Guess it's a euphemism for "we accept only industry referrals."

Is there no way to browse by literary agents in imdbpro anymore?

I have found imdbpro to be a bit worthless when it comes to that.

Go right ahead! You're welcome to do so! As it was a lot of work for those who took the painstaking efforts to create it, I'm sure they'd love for someone to take on the arduous update. Can't wait to see your results! And thanks in advance!

Due to consolidation in the industry and the difficult current environment all but a tiny handful of literary deals are handled by the following eleven agencies (listed roughly in order of size/clout). Note that these days it is also extremely rare for a writer to get an agent before they get a manager absent truly significant heat.

CAA
WME
UTA
ICM
Gersh
Paradigm
Resolution
APA
Original Artists
Innovative Artists
Verve

I have a list on my site. It's certainly not comprehensive by any means, but it's only a couple years old, so should be fairly up-to-date.

http://www.scriptsandscribes.com/agency-list-2/

I will be updating it in the next few weeks.

So the smaller lit agencies aren't getting anything sold? If so, how the heck do they stay in business
