Ok so the script is finished but what do you do then?..Do you send it to places like miramax or do you try and get a agent first then send it to movies companies? Has anyone been successful at this? Bottomline what do you do with a script you want to sell (assuming its that good?)
There’s a link to a discussion on the subject, but it doesn’t answer your question. I’ve been all over the web looking for the same answer and this is my plan based on what I have read.
Oh yeah. Don’t forget to register your script with the writers guild or have it copywrited or both.
What is the average price producers are willing to pay for a screenplay, providing it’s a good one?
It depends on who the producers are.
But Hollywood’ish, feasible, original, well-written scripts that are very marketable usually go anywhere between $75,000 - $1,000,000.
I think 50,000 is the lowest they can buy it for. I’m not sure about that though.
