Default How long for reply (if any)

A reputable production company e-mailed me to request my script after I reached the QF of Nicholl last year. I sent them the script just under 2 months ago, but have heard nothing back. Do Production companies usually send rejection e-mails when they request a script? If not, how long a wait effectively means no?

It's fine to call the prodco after a couple weeks just to make sure they got the script, so go ahead and call 'em. They should be able to tell you the status, if any. But whatever you do don't dwell on it. If they're interested, they'll get in touch. In the meantime, send the script out to other prodcos...and get crackin' on your next script!

This is a perennial question around here and there's really no definitive answer. However, I think that after two months the odds are pretty high that it's a pass. Nevertheless, you don't have anything to lose by sending a polite follow-up email inquiring about the status of the read. But, as Jim said, don't dwell on it at the expense of other efforts.

Congratulations on your Nicholl placement, by the way.

Last November, I submitted a script to a producer. I sent a follow-up e-mail a few days ago and got a quick response. Turns out the producer lost my script and wants me to resubmit. Stuff happens...

Thanks for these helpful responses. I had no great hopes as the script is very English and couldn't be set in the US even with a re-write - a problem with the scripts I'll be entering in this year's Nicholl as well.
