Chasing Postal Address ....
Hi All ...
I have recently completed my first screenplay & I must add that it was an enjoyable and enlightening experience. The act of putting words to mere thoughts and creating an exciting new world was extremely invigorating.
But now comes the hard part - allowing others to appreciate my creation. I live in Australia and assumed I needed assistance from an agent or manager based in L.A.
But after constant answering machine messages at 12.30 in the afternoon (californian time) I finally found a voice on the other end of the phone. The secretary from the Stein Agency informed me that they only consider artists that have been referred and that I should send my screenplay direct to producers.
I felt a little heartbroken that I am gonna have to do all the work by myself from the other side of the planet. I work five days a week and cannot exactly head in and pitch my idea to a prducer. So, this is going to be difficult, but well worth it in the end.
All I am chasing is a little help to start me off. I would like to get my screenplay into the hands of Robert Shaye at New Line Cinema and require a postal address for the company. I understand that it would have to get through so many sets of hands before he even looks at it, but I remain hopeful.
I have searched online but cannot find any details for New Line and do not see a point in paying fees to a website just to obtain a postal address. If anyone out there could point me in the right direction to finding the postal address, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thankyou in advance ...
