Default Zero Gravity

I know there are tons of really old threads about Zero Gravity, and Georgia Vestakis, but was wondering if anyone has any recent news, does she still request loads of scripts ect?

She requested our script on Feb. 24, about a week after we sent the query.
We haven't heard anything since.
Hope this helps.
Curious what the scoop is, too.

She requested a script of mine on February 6th and I sent it to her the same day. I never heard back, but an agent requested two pages from it and said it was overwritten. After reviewing it with my colleague, I agree that it was overwritten, and made a ton of revisions. So, I don't think my script was as strong as it could have been, unfortunately. But Georgia is definitely requesting scripts!

Thanks for your responses Clint, and Eugene. Sounds as though she still requests tons of scripts... I've yet to come across anyone who has heard back from ZG after sending their script, although I'm sure there are some lucky peeps out there.

I heard back fairly promptly after querying Georgia with my first script. She asked me to send through something else. I did, but not heard anything for a couple of weeks now.

Guess the premise didn't grab her - or you guys are clogging up her inbox!

I got a script request from Georgia yesterday. I sent the script last night, so hopefully I'll hear something eventually.

But yes, it seems she still requests a lot of scripts. Unless they're so inundated with queries through their submission email that it only seems like they request a lot, when they're really only requesting 10% or something?

I've also read that although they request a lot, they rarely follow through. They probably cast a wide net but only keep the choicest catches.

I've dealt with both Jeff Belkin and Tai Duncan (when he was with another company). Both responsive and professional.

This is from my interview with Eric Williams of Zero Gravity:

Quote:
Kevin: Zero Gravity is one of the few prominent management companies that still accept unsolicited screenplays via your website. How many submission requests do you get per week from the website and of the submission queries, how many screenplays would you say ZG actually requests to read the full script?

Eric: Anywhere between 50-100 queries per week. And believe it or not, as long as the query letter is professional, we’ll request it and get eyes on the script. We built our business on breaking new writers, and will always keep the query pipeline open.
So yes, they accept a ton of material. It might affect the turnaround time, but they do appear to weed through most of it in due time. Good luck!
