Default Pitching a packaged project at studios

Has anyone gotten in the door cold this way that can share their experience?

I have a project with actors, director and a smaller production company onboard. They have produced a half-dozen $3 million films. But, they do it by matching funding from different sources, for each film.

It seems to me we have enough elements to get ourselves a meeting over at Sony or Fox Searchlight to pitch our show.

Has anyone done this without using an agent?

Do you have funding? If you have 3mil already you should be able to parlay that into at least another 6 or 7. How much do you need? Where is the funding from? Who is attached etc. You should be talking to distributors if you've got all the elements (real elements not d-list once upon a timers) to get a pre-sale especially if the prodco is already established. Getting the first money is hard. The rest of the money is FAR easier. PM if you want to discuss.
