Default Atchity Entertainment/Bright Lights Entertainment

Anyone know if they're reputable?

Exclamation Re: Atchity Entertainment/Bright Lights Entertainment

Bright Lights has been very busy lately. If you have the contact info, and a decent script to offer, I say "go forth and multiply!"

Check out:

Atchity is here:

AEI-Atchity Edit./Ent. Intl. Inc.
webaei@aol.com
http://www.aeionline.com

I don't trust ANYONE that requires that you pay a reading fee!

(What the heck IS an "atchity" anyway?)

Question Re: Atchity Entertainment/Bright Lights Entertainment

It seems like this is actually two companies. Hmmm..I wonder about the necessity of dividing them like that, since they both appear to be "Entertainment" companies. They ought to call it like it is, it would make them at least appear to be on the up and up.

Unhappy Re: Atchity Entertainment/Bright Lights Entertainment

Master...Master... my hump keeps shifting!

Seriously tho, why do we always see Brightlights/Achity listed together, and however did you ascertain that one side of the equation is good, and the other evil?

Sounds like an old Star Trek eppy!

Anywho, releasing a Rebecca De Mornay film barely qualifies BLF for a free TOASTER, let alone legitimacy!

Default Re: Atchity Entertainment/Bright Lights Entertainment

My friend signed an option for her novel through Atchity. She had a great lit agent and a well known film agent work the deal for her. If her novel hadn't been out so long and had so little interest they wouldn't have signed at all - Atchity played hard ball on standard details and pushed back and forth for months. Again, on standard deals. The agents would have bailed completely except they knew it was all they'd get and it was better than nothing. Only a little bit better than nothing.

Of course, if it gets made (sold even) then it will work for them, but the upfront fees were negilible and there's been no movement in more than a year.

My friend - the author - paid a lawyer to read over the contract (after her agents) and that pretty much wiped out the fee. She broke even.

Like I said, there was no other interest, or else she'd have gone elsewhere in a heartbeat.

I know nothing about the other half though - back then they were known as AE Entertainment and Atchity Entertainment. I also remember a lot of people warning her away at the time.

Does that help?
