Writers Wanted! MovieBytes is looking for articles. Call for Submissions
Has anyone dealt with this company. They told me that my story was "not a horrible idea", but the reader was not exited enough to give it a go. They did say it was marketable, but all they could offer at this time was to let their literary department look at what it would cost to "collaborate" on the story.
To me this seems sort of like a scam. I mean if they liked it enough wouldn't they make an offer and have someone else do a rewrite. And who would foot the cost to "collaborate?"
I've been reading the messages on this bulletin board for awhile and they have been helpful. anyone who may have dealt with this company or has any words of advise please let me know. Thanks, C.D. Conklyn, email@example.com
Yeah, thanks Jim. I guess I'll just keep typing.
Does anyone have anything on this company? They requested a copy of my script and I'd like to know a little bit about them.
This bulletin board has been extremely helpful and I'd like to thank you all for the input I've read and received here. Also any writers and or film enthusiasts out there that live in the Lake Tahoe area?
Thanks, C.D. Conklyn
How long should I wait to get in contact with companies that have requested my script? I've sent them out almost two month ago. Should I follow up now on their status, or should I wait longer?
I too will continue to chase the dream. I will continue to treck forward regardless of rejection. I will sell my work. WE WILL continue to make art regardless of the opinions of the tasteless suits who, bless their hearts, can't see creativity through the green greed of money.
Good luck Randy, because if you make it the better it becomes for the rest of us chasing the dream.
See ya at the top.
No, but you can easily puncture an artery with a tooth pick.
Anybody know any info on submitting to Halcyon Entertainment and perhaps an address? I can't seem to find it anywhere I search. Oh yeah, and happy new year to all.
Ron, thanks for looking. You hit it on the head, they found my script at storyXchange. Once again thanks, Conklyn Conklyn.
I better get some sleep. I'm going by two last names. Charles Conklyn.
Anybody know the scoop on these companies? They all have at least one copy of one of my scripts and a couple have two. Andrew Lauren Productions Feigen/Parrent Literary Management the Vault, Inc. Codikow Films Cine-Vision 2000 Smith Entertainment Leah Film Thanks for the info, Charles Conklyn
Has anybody dealt with them, are they straight up? Or am I just waisting time and money sending them my material.
Thanks Ashley, I got hooked-up with most of these companies via a query service and I just wanted to know how may others out there have dealt with such companies and what they've learned. I'm just trying to make contacts, cause you know that's(unfortunately) part of the game. I do work in the entertainment idustry, but in the live aspect. I'm a stage technician in an adult review in Lake Tahoe. And I did go out with a dancer that was dating a professional wrestler. Was somebody watching me when they came up with that sitcom NIKKI?
Thanks Miriam, I used Venice Arts service. I've had 16 requests for my script. The two companies you mentioned above I got in contact with through this sites "writers wanted" section. I'm not too worried about theft, my script is pretty far out there anyway. I just know that some companies are a waste of time and I want to know which ones for future submissions. Once again thanks and I guess til I hear more I'll just keep writing. Charles Conklyn
Oh yeah, Venice Arts lets you set up the logline and synopsis and then they fix it up to your liking and submit it via email. What they sent off was pretty much what I sent them. And no they don't track, but it was fairly cheap.
I thought the movie was in the middle of what's out there right now. I did like the fact that the writer touched on inner emotions, like making Kelly's(Helen Hunt) husband a dentist that gave Chuck(Hanks) a root canal. He is a source of inner pain just like the tooth he had to knockout back on the island. One thing I thought was unnecessary was Hanks talking to Wilson about hanging himself and then later telling his friend the same story. I thought it would have been more dramatic if it just showed Hanks go get the rope and then later when he saw his friend tell how he almost killed himself. Why do it twice? Anyway, that's my opinion and I haven't sold anything yet... YET.
Any info on Dragon Pictures or Graham Broadbent? He emailed me regarding a script I haven't marketed in some time. Any leads on him or his company would be helpful. Thanks, C.D.C.
