The deal:

In SUBJECT LINE of email, use the following format:

If submitting ONE IDEA, put the TITLE (and please come up with something, no
matter how generic) in ALL CAPS followed by your name in parentheses, then
the date - it should look like this:

* MY BRILLIANT IDEA (Jane Doe) 12-14-03

(Oh, and if you think that using MY BRILLIANT IDEA as your title is
hilarious, please reconsider your career in comedy)

If submitting MULTIPLE IDEAS, the subject line should read your name +
"ideas" and the date, like this:

* Jack Smith ideas 12-14-03

In the BODY of the email:

* Convey your idea in a few sentences or a paragraph - this means make it
short and sweet: NO full scripts or treatments. BUT do what you can to sell
your idea to Mr. Kosberg!
* NO ATTACHMENTS!!!!!!!!
* Relay the project's status: "I have a completed script." Or "I have a
treatment for this TV series."
* Include name and phone number (very important - Mr. Kosberg does NOT
respond via email) after the idea(s).

efax is (send just like a regular fax) 530-483-3257

PLEASE NOTE:

Mr. Kosberg will contact you if he is interested in your project. Due to
our high volume of submissions, he does NOT respond or give feedback on

Default Here is what it looks like if

If you submit it through the website moviepitch.com here is the generic response you get


Dear Daniel Marcantel,
Thank you for sending us your idea submission entitled "BLAH". This is your confirmation that we have received your idea. Use the print button below to make a copy for your files.

Your short description was:
BLAH BLAH BLAH DE BLAH BLAH

And your full description, if you included one, was:
Work In progress
We will use the information below to contact you...
E-mail: tdmarcantel@yahoo.com
Telephone: 888-888-888

Remember, you will not receive any feedback from us on this idea unless Robert chooses it as one to pursue. In that case, he will contact you, most likely by telephone, for your permission to pitch it.
Robert may take as long as six weeks to review your submission. In some cases, ideas are set aside in a file for later review -- mainly if Robert thinks the timing is off to pitch that idea now. If he decides in the future to pitch that idea, he will contact you first.
Remember, your submissions are your property, and you may submit them elsewhere.
Sincerely,
Webmaster, MoviePitch.com

Thanks Justinpz for the contact stuff and fatbrain for the response details -- I don't think I'll be hitting him up now, but it's good to have.

I think this quote --

-- is interesting -- I guess they get a lot of folks who might not know any better. 'Don't hang your hopes on any one opportunity' should be one of the first non-writing lessons learned by screenwriters...

I've never been on his web site. I just read his book and called him up. Seems like a nice guy. He just said send the ideas over (to the email in the thread below) and he said "if I'm interested I WILL get back to you".

I never heard from him on the 3 ideas I sent. He says he doesn't give feedback so you are kind of shooting into the wind. I also find it disconcerting that you get no acknowledgment, so, as a "paper trail" it's a one way transaction but I guess we do this all the time with query letters anyway.

There was no mention of the CD when I spoke to him. I think I will buy it anyway. I've done quite a bit of pitching via the phone or face to face so if I can pick up some tips from a master then hey, why not?

Cheers

KC

Hi Leapboy

Just curious - any idea of how many email pitches he gets per week/month and how many of those he picks up and goes out with?

Cheers

KC

not really, when i talk with bob, it's always about my project and nothing else. as far as him running with them...not many at all....your idea better be BIG,BIG,BIG...or he will not call. out of all the pitches i have sent, he has called on three and ask for treatments and only one of them is being pitch...he is first try to attach an actor to it befor he goes to the studio...this things take time so you must be patient

He gets a huge number. I used to help him screen some of them. So his way of saving time so he can keep the door open is to not reply unless he either wants to pitch it or it is too close to something else he is already pitching. He'll tell you that so you won't sue him for stealing your idea.
