Default I Got More Meetings By Starting a Screenplay Development Company

so it is business to business, instead of artist to company, hoping that i can grow the business into a big company and sign writers, and own their work

This has the cadence of the Seven Minute Abs pitch.

So much weirdness to unpack here!

What is a "Screenplay Development Company" - a notes/coverage service? Or a production company?

No, wait, you're looking to "sign writers, and own their work" - so you're a manager now? And managers can produce but "own"?

And you did this just to get meetings... so you're ripping off writers under false pretenses and lying to producers and studios or whoever about why you want to meet them because it sounds like you did all this just to get meetings which strongly suggests you're doing it to pitch your own work, not that of your "clients."

Do please tell us more, and list the name of your company so everyone can see.

Sounds like the business model of Zero Gravity from 15 years ago.

Yeah, so many questions. What is a "screenplay development" company?

I get it. We're playing a game:
