Default Media mail...

to you newbies...just send it media mail...it costs $1.86... it arrives a day or two later...remember your screenplay will be sitting somewhere in a large stack... you're naive to think that a producer is going to read it as soon as it arrives...it may take a couple of weeks...sometimes an indie will read it and get right back to you in a couple of days...not usually though

take it from me...I've been doing this for quite awhile...also write on the outside of envelope requested material...never and I repeat never send out an unsolicited screenplay...


three stacks/types of incoming screenplays...Empire State Building...two story apartment building...and a sleeping bag (that's the short stack...the one you want the producer/reader to sleep with) most scripts hit the Empire State building...some make it to the condo...and very few make it to the sleeping bag)

just a couple of thoughts I felt like sharing...

Default Confirm Delivery or Not?

Thanks for the insight, gdover. I'll definite use the "requested material" on the envelope tip.

For those of you interested, the guy DID sign for it. Doesn't mean he didn't immediately dump it in the trash but at least there's hope for me yet...
