I am somewhat familiar with Lenny. He is a very/ nice guy to talk to but what concerns me is several years ago (1995-1996) he told me he was working with Claire Dane in this movie. I can't remember the movie but anyway when I did some research I found him listed but as the "Kraft service" man. So, I mean you know take that for what it's worth.
A Picture of You Literary Agency - Lenny Minelli requested a script from me. Is anyone familiar with them.
Thank you. Joe
I checked on them with Preditors and Editors, and they got a NOT RECOMMENDED, as they charge upfront reading fees. As you know, they're in Ohio, which might limit their ability to represent you in Hollywood.
In any event, you might, in the future, want to check on literary agents and others at the following website:
Best of luck.
Yeah, Joe, don't ever pay anyone to read your scripts unless it's a service like WSN. In fact, you'd probably have a better chance of getting a good agent if you posted on the site.
Good to see you've resurfaced. Missed your wit and wisdom the past couple of days.
IF it's true they charge reading fees, or refer you to someone that does, the agency should be reported to the WGA immediately. The agency is listed as signatory and this is strickly against the rules.
I would always prefer to work with an agent in L.A., because that's where the deals are made and where the action is. But I once had a book agent that had an excellent contact at ICM. It's not impossible that someone out in the boonies is working with someone in a major L.A. agency. Always ask who the agent knows. Hollywood runs on relationships and contacts.
I've just been busy. My day job is as a trainer and I've been doing managment training web classes to a company in the Ukraine. They are 7 hours ahead, so needless to say, it's been early morns and early nights to sleep. ;.)
Thank you all for you response. I don't send a script without checking out who an agent is anymore. If they have a bad reputation or charge fees, that information is usually out there.
