10,000,000 … yeah, a Charly Kaufman spec script lol

When David Koepp was an unknown, he sold his first script for $5 million dollars.

Anything less than half a million is an insult!

Selling a screenplay is harder than selling an indie film. It may be better to try to make a film (perhaps about something else) and exhibit it…for one week in either of NYC or LA, followed by a broader distribution. Once you have some experience in showbiz, it is easier to get taken seriously.
