Well the first thing you would want to do is, copyright your material after you have finished the script, upload your pdf. file and use a credit card or banking account to do it. The second thing I did was a treatment, which is basically a highlight of the most important scenes in your script, so it should be about 30 to 40 pages long. After doing so I rented a few movies that are similar to what I had written, which is a low-budget, character driven films, by the way Lionsgate has a plethora of low-budget films that are usually recognized. Like the entire Saw series, Paul Haggis’ Crash, Akeelah and the Bee, which is a tremendous , unappreciated film. When the closing credits appear after these films just look for a producer, search him up on yahoo and look at the material that he’s most intrested in. After you have found a producer’s name that has interest in movies, like your own, search any offices and ask for his contact info. Los Angeles
2700 Colorado Ave.
Santa Monica, CA 90404
Telephone (310) 449-9200
Facsimile (310) 255-3870 I used this one, I contacted his assistant through e-mail, tell them that you have written a speculative screenplay that might benefit their company, give her a log line about your script, copyright serial number, your name, phone number, e-mail. . . Then she will give you an adress to mail your screenplay, which has to be binded and contain personal info on the front page. After 2 weeks you will receive an e-mail that your material has been reviewed by a reader, thereafter you wait another week where they give you the news. Since I sold my material all rights now belong to Lionsgate, So they can re-write it and tamper with it. It kind of sucks, cuz I really spent a lot of time on it. And cool part about it is, if my movie gets comissioned for production I get more money, but that’s only if it ever gets made. My fingers are crossed.
Well, great info ! Keep telling us news. My fingers are crossed for you too.
Did that take time to get an answer too have a reply by the assistante ?
