Get Your Screenplay Out There!
It’s a crowded and competitive marketplace for scriptwriters. Do what everybody else is doing and you’ll get what everybody else is getting: ignored, mostly. Tonight we look at how you can stand out as a guerrilla warfare screenwriter (without getting arrested). You will find out how to :
- Write a powerful query letter to agents and producers
- Use new media to get attention
- Find an agent (when and where to look)
- Network effectively (you’re probably going to the wrong events)
- Stand out even if you’re an introvert
