Hi! Quick question here ... when a prod co says "No unsolicited submissions" does that mean that they do not want you to query them? Or are they asking you to not send them your script uninvited.

Thanks!

It means both. You wouldn't send a script anywhere totally uninvited, for one, but no unsolicited scripts means they only read scripts that come through relationships that they may have with agents, other producers, etc. You know like those signs some people put near their doorbell - NO SOLICITORS - meaning do not knock on my door and bug me. Same thing.

Don't let "No unsolicited" stop you from querying. If they like your idea enough, they'll do the soliciting.

I actually agree with that one. If you have a great query, send it anyway. If they are serious about their closed-door policy you'll never hear anything again but if something about your idea grabs them - you betcha you'll hear. It can't hurt to query. And I do think the "no unsolicited material accepted" thing is just a boilerplate thing that some companies say.

Another option is to...

Phone or email asking if they are taking submissions and if you can send a query letter.

That'll be a simple yes, no or not at this time.

Thanks, all! I had pretty much decided to query anyway.

You know, I think if I ran a company, that's what I'd prefer. I'd also keep a bull onhand to chase him after he dropped the thing off.

But I'm easily entertained.
