How to get an agent for your script
Author, stage designer and production manager Brian Koppelman ("The Girlfriend Experience", "Solitary Man", "Ocean's 13") is always asked how to find an agency. None of the agents asked to meet us or get any more information. Few er than a mont later Miramax purchased the script in issue (which became the movie "Rounders").
Until the end of March, every agent had phone numbers in us and asked us to go to New York to take us for a cup of tea and ask us to give them the privileges to explain why they and their teams were the best and only ones to be there.
Since they were genuine admirers of our work, had a genuine appreciation of our work and knew from the minute they saw our script that we would have a long and excellent careers if we had the right kind of staff around to lead us through the hard Hollywood mazes.
That doesn't make the agents angry or wicked men. However, I think it lies the thought that their judgment is indeed a judgment of the inner value of the work in questions. It is as good an excuse as any because most scriptwriters come to our attention when asked by aspiring authors how to get an asset.
Most agents are responsive, not inactive. It has to be them; their day is dedicated to serving actual customers, film studio, producer, deal workflow, all that. Also, they know most scripts sent by amateur filmmakers will not become match-schangers, million dollars in revenues, the start of a promising orbit.
The only thing you have to do is persuade them that it would be advantageous for them to spend their spare minute on you and your work. That'?s how it works. Executives in the film industry and scriptwriters, writers, directors as well as production companies are every single working days on-line, engaged, taking part, looking for something great. is to find a way to get them to ask you to do your reading.
Get a sequence from the script and shoot it. When it' really great, other guys will begin to link to it, and before you know it, agents will ask you to submit the story. But the point is: there are enormous entrance obstacles in the movie and TV industry.
It is a straightforward issue of numbers and realities. So your real decision is to be complaining about how difficult it is to get a presentation or go out there and do something so astonishing that the presentation finds you. That' is what the history of our first script is about.
I' m not saying the script was astonishing. The fact that Harvey Weinstein purchased it was. If it' really indisputable, your real test won't be to find an operative. Keep up to date with the latest developments in television and movies!
