Writers Wanted! MovieBytes is looking for articles. Call for Submissions
Did I read recently that you got an agent and an option?
Hey Paula! I was on the inktip newsletter (which was surreal to see!) I signed with Whitt Brantley Management months back and recently he's been negotiating an option for me.
I promise to go into more detail when/if the option is official. Since these things fall through all the time, I didn't post about it yet.
I do have an agent also (Sue Giordano, Hudson Agency), who I signed with about a year and a half ago. I credit that to (besides the hard work and luck) some advice at the 2008 Austin Film Festival, which got me to give queries another try. Sue requested and liked one of my scripts, and then asked what else I had. I showed her two more and she signed me. So that "what else you got?" thing that people talk about was true.
That's wonderful Irin, congrats. You should tell us about those things anyway. Most of us know nothing about how it works so please tell us no matter how small it seems to you.
Thanks. I just figured I'd see if the option actually happens. We'll see...
Almost... Keep us posted.
That's fantastic. Keep us all posted!
Dang. That's freaking awesome. Hope it works out for you (knock on wood).
Just saw your win in June's Script Savvy.
E-mail me with your agent's contact info. Will be looking for material soon myself. That also goes for Paula Smith and Janet Hogate.
What about the rest of us John? Sniff, sniff.
Thanks John. What kind of stuff are you looking for?
Julia and the rest of my Moviebytes posters (not posers ... inside joke for you old timers), I intend to make my rounds on this board. But right now my time is limited on how much I can read to consider. I will post a more formal call for scripts when my time is more free. It's a long story. Let's just say, I'm intent on showing the industry how business should be done.
Irin, I am open to anything right now genre wise. What I'm looking for is something for me to produce while giving myself some time to write my own projects. I don't want down time while I write.
For now, something that is not too expensive. Ready to shoot. I do NOT believe in development. Either the script is ready or not. The story and/or situation your character is in must be plausible. Everything is on the table, even animation and musicals. Well, no documentaries (which really can't be scripted anyway).
Mind you, I'm just looking right now. So don't expect an immediate sale or option. I still have a lot to do on the business side of things (for me that's the time killer... ugh, but a necessary evil). It is after all called the movie BUSINESS.
Hold on to your seats everyone, this is going to be the beginning of an interesting and bumpy ride.
I have something low budget that might interest you. I'll shoot you an email later about it.
Been away for a while, family emergency, but it was happy news to come back and see you, and other MByters, doing well in contests etc. Looking forward to hearing about everyone's journey.
I hope everything is okay.
