I have finished three scripts and Korey said that many people have sent their works to agents and things have gone from there. Any other ideas? Also when I google or yellow page "agents" all I get are websites and places that you pay tons of money per month just to be on a mailing list.
You don't get much chance at getting picked up. You should set yourself of them, and throw yourself right at them. Don't seem to be too dependent, but show them you are giving them an opportunity to help you or work with you. Of course you have to you them something so make sure you can live up to their expectation, whomever they may be.
Enter your scripts in Screenplay competition and make sure you enter a reputable one get your name out there if you win or place and also you can enter a free one to get noticed Nichols fellowship etc. ScriptPimp, Final Draft pay bouku bucks for top scripts.
Hey everyone, this is a good question and I should have contributed sooner.
a) Write a script and then go online, subscribe to IMDb PRO and then find the contact details for the producers that produced indie flicks. Send them your script and tell them what you want to do for them, most will turn you down flat, some might help you.
b) I live in England so I don't know what it's like over in the US but here there are websites like Shooting People and Talent Circle where folks meet up. If you have a good script a director might pick it up and offer to shoot it, your chances of getting paid are almost zero but a film will get made on your script and you can get a credit and a page on IMDb.
c) Use method b to do A LOT of pro bono work until someone tells you they'd like to pay you (strings will always be attached) but a jobs a job.
d) Here in England Chris Nolan (yeah THAT CHRIS NOLAN) and Guy Richie met many of their collaborators at open nights at organisations like Raindance. The founder of Raindance is called Elliot Grove and he's VERY helpful. You can find the US equivalents of Raindance, but I don't know what the culture is like over there, from what hear it's very teen/realityTV/corporate orientated! in the UK it's all about the underdog!!
Guys, drop me a line or post here to continue the conversation, but let me leave you with this thought, the best way to get noticed is to get really good at what you do, so keep writing and working on that killer script!!
