How "small" is the upfront payment?

And what do you bring to the table other than the treatment?

Do you have IMDB credits? Industry contacts?

It sounds like you're asking someone to do 90% of the work (turning a treatment into a script) for a very small chance of 50% of the money. Why do you think this would appeal to anyone?

What does 'default' mean in this context?

Anyhow, I doubt we our [sic] on the same page - I'm a hilarious bigot.

Good Day @LaurieD,

I would like to say I hope my post offends anyone! I truly value and respect a Writers worth and skills. I would not expect anyone to do 90% of the work because I also write! My story goes I was once a script runner for Warner Bros. and took up writing script as a hobby. However I always had the Ideals but not the true writing skills, so I would write Treatments or Outlines. Some of which I've pitch to a few Hollywood exec that later ended up being on the Big Screen but that another story.

So fast forward 15 years later and I find myself still meeting people in the Industry. One recently whom happens to be a Producer with his own Production company. We had lunch and I share my story with him which lead to me emailing him my last Treatment / Script that I had been working on and to my surprised he liked it and now wants to see the script. So that brings me here looking for a PARTNER or someone whom maybe be willing to take a chance. Now I know I can get an updated version of Final Draft or Script Wizard and do it myself. However I get a headache thinking about how crazy I'll make myself giving that I have my own Business now. So I thought I'd throw this out here and see what happens what do I have to lose...

But I thank you for your input and inquiry...

That still sounds like you expect your "partner" to do all the writing part...

You're welcome, Urban Minded / Chris Jones.

Your grammar is rather quirky. Is English your first language?
