And that would be mine.
If you have just come across this swell site through a Google search for “sell a screenplay” then kudos to you for attempting to break into the Hollywood club. But let me stop you as I am not what you are searching for. You cannot send your script to me for me to try to sell. You need an agent for that. And I am not an agent. And how you become a Hollywood agent is a tightly guarded secret. Trust me, I have searched for it many times. The best I can tell is that you have to become a
slave lapdog biotch ass-licker intern to some agent at some big agency like William Morris. Then you can become an agent if they let you. I’m telling you, they have ninjas or something guarding the info on how to become a Hollywood agent.
Now, from what I read, you can also just get a manager or a lawyer to submit your shit for you. But you end up needing an agent anyways so I say why pay out a percentage of your profits to three douche bags when you can just pay one, right?
Now, I am bringing all of this up because I just checked my email, which I haven’t done since sometime in August (July?) and I had this, from one Roland Flores,
when can i send my script
Ahh, dear Roland, my apologies for not responding to you sooner. See, I am a lazy bastard and didn’t check my email. If I had I would have responded sooner to your email you sent on August 28th. Of course, I see that on September 11 you canceled your subscription to this feed, so you’re not even reading this anyways. Wanker.
Maybe you just wrote some kickass script and wanted me to read it and share in your excitement. That’s cool. I can be down with that. But people, don’t send me an email and think my lazy ass is gonna read it anytime in the near future. Drop me a comment on a post. I see those every time I log in to hit you guys with a new post.
So please, send me your scripts. I will read them. You will get feedback from someone that has as much credibility as my good friend Gordy Hoffman or whatever his name is with BlueCat Screenwriting Lab. And I have a degree in English and Journalism, AND English is my native language. Plus I’ve read a gazillion screenwriting books. I will post about your scripts that you send me. Hilarity will ensue. But seriously, I won’t promise to be nice. I may even trash your script. Or I may crap my pants because you’re so damn good. Don’t you want a completely unbiased opinion?
