Default Re: How far are you willing to go to get your screenplay on the screen?

Money is supposed to flow *to* the screenwriter.

If they think your script can make them money, they give you money (and make the film that makes money).

Run.

Sure, but it never fails to amaze me how many companies are only in business to scam money from newbs, and on the other side of the equation, it's scary how many writers fall for this type of sucker bait.

Could it be The Screenplay Agency?

Name 'em and don't worry about it....even if they wanted to sue you, they'd probably have to call you first to get the money for a lawyer.

THESE ARE SCAM ARTISTS!!! And poor ones at that.

We need to all contact these guys and pretend like we're interested in this offer.

But we'll say that we need a hundred bucks from them first for the wire transfer to access our ancestors' funds over in Nigeria.

The ole' switcheroo...the cons get conned.

Then we'll pool together our money to make a trailer about a company of scam artists who are duped into bankruptcy by a ragtag bunch of newbie writers.

We can call it...

I like Santino's idea. Call 'em up, and tell them you are REALLY interested in having them produce your screenplay, and that you have major connections around town and a award-winning script just waiting to be filmed.

But first you gotta shoot a short teaser, and ask them to put up half the money for the teaser- $50,000.
