    misc Four completed scripts. Is it time to look for representation?

    I think 4 finished scripts is enough to start contacting agents. The only thing that could stop you from doing so is the quality of your scripts. If you are self aware enough that your scripts are good, or have received some positive feedback (from professionals) on them, then do it. You don't...

    Aside from keeping a log of everything ,how do you decide these? Who to query or not? when should you sign the release when shouldn't you sign the release?

    That's sad they get to go along with their cautionary measurements but if we do the same that's a red flag.

    On that, if they ask for it, is it possible to ask them to sign a NDA in the form of an email? Or is that a rookie move that pushes them away?

    Thanks Mara, that's what I wanted to know. Didn't realize them asking for it in an email gives a legal standing.

    Forget the manager, I'm asking about the cases you send your script directly to producers. That is true with this amount of paranoia no work would have been recognized these days. My question was a bit more specific than that which is concerning international writers outside of U.S sending full...

    Yes, my question was what happens if that manager show it to the producer? Eventually you want that manager to show your script to producers right? Also I may be wrong, but don't you send query letters to producers rather than agents?

    misc Four completed scripts. Is it time to look for representation?

    Let's say your pitch works and they ask for the whole script. In your experience how many times is that script liable to be stolen? Is this stealing part an overrated thing, is it pure paranoia or a rookie move to think that or does that actually happen? Does this happen more often for writers...

    Yes, I believe this was a good discussion. It's been dragged way too long so I'm just gonna wrap it up by saying this belief could introduce the mentality to new writers that if their script didn't win in a contest then it is definitely a good high concept script. I hope any aspiring writer who...

    Is it possible to apply this rationale to the judges' overall bias towards non- high concept scripts? So it's not a cemented rule for every contest to reject high concept scripts? What happens if that "passion piece" is also a high concept? This is basically what I said. If a writer is...

    I read the article you sent. Look at this part : what does it point to? It's basically saying most of the independent films submitted to amazon are sh**. Further proving my point about the scarcity of talent in the world. It has nothing to do with the contests.

    Have you ever considered the reason behind the lack of high concept scripts in the grand finalists' pool could be that not a lot of people can write high concept scripts like that and it has nothing to do with the contest's rubrics?

    Ok I get what you are saying. Basically you are saying competitions are encouraging up and coming writers to get accustomed to certain formats and styles of writing(non-high concepts) that isn't viable in reality. So when they win because of their already flawed script they can't get far in the...
