GOT AN IDEA…NEED AN AGENT? (Here are 50 Agents for Writers, Comics, Actors, Directors & Reality Ideas… Call.)

SELL YOUR IDEA: Movie, Sitcoms & Reality

“Yo Dov, I need an agent. Do you know one?” is probably the most common question I’m asked.

And yes, I know hundreds (below is a list of Talent Agents, Literary Agents, Music Agents, Production Agents, Packaging Agents, etc.) from just one Agency but first you need to know the true job of an agent.

IDEA-3   IDEA-3

Let’s get real: Agents are not here to (A) sell your script or (B) get you a job; Agents are here to (C) maximize your revenue potential after you have (A2) sold your script or you have (B2) already started a career, with name recognition, for the forthcoming year.

I hope you heard (oops “read”) that… Agents are not hear to sell ideas from non-marketable people.

Thus, you must first become marketable and then you will get an agent to maximize, now that you are marketable, your revenue potential for the forthcoming year.

To get marketable you have to either make a No-Budget, Micro-Budget or Ultra-Low-Budget Movie that gets distribution or at least get a YouTube Channel with 1-3 million views of everything you post.

Thus, “You must make the first sale or get the first above-the-line title on a film, that obtains global distribution, so now an agent can call and say “I represent the WRITER-OF, the PRODUCER-OF, the DIRECTOR-OF….” Which means you are marketable!

BUT I ONLY GOT AN IDEA

But if all you have is an idea (I’m sure it’s great, but who doesn’t have a great idea) then you better first write it on paper (2-3 pages, double spaced typing) with a Title Page that states in parenthesis ” ( ) ” “Treatment For Feature Film” or “Treatment For Reality Series” or “Treatment For TV Sitcom” and register it with the Writers Guild (www.WGA.org) at a cost of $20-25 and now you have proof of what you created.

For always remember “No one owns an idea”.

IDEA-1   IDEA-1

REALITY CHECK: Always remember, “celebrities”, “marketable names”, “hot directors” can sell ideas… Now you… you, not being one of those three must, at a minimum, write your idea, make it tangible and obtain proof (date of registration or date of copyright) of when you created it, then attach yourself (aka: partner) to a “celebrity name”… who has a track record of delivery.

But you still are asking me for some agents…. and all you have is an idea. I’m telling you its gonna be useless. But I promised in this Posts Title to give you 50 Agents so here goes…

I’ll pick an agency, PARADIGM.

They are the smallest of the “Big 6” agencies and have offices in LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK & NASHVILLE with hundreds of agents.

I’ll give you the names of 50 agents at Paradigm. FIVE-ZERO! FIFTY!

No more excuses. Now, pick up your phone and call…but (A) are you marketable, (B) do you own something (ideas are not ownable) and (C) do you have proof of an ability to deliver.

In the interim, assuming you are A, B & C (see above) here is a list of Paradigm Agents.

  3. Hi ya’ll, I am a songwriter, with some tunes placed into film productions and TV. Now I have written a film script, MATSQUI MASSACRE with another writer in CA, and we are seeking an AGENCY for representation, and film makers to produce a feature film production from this 92 page Thriller/Slasher genre. One reason I wanted this script completed, GET MY OWN DAM MUSIC placed into it.. BUT, it is impossible to locate these Agents, because of the no UNSOLOCITED stupid thing?? Any suggestions? Pamela

  4. RobinBeth Faulkner says:

    Why aren’t there any replies to these questions?

    1. Beverly says:

      O do not understand that myself either, but keep on trying. Why not let is pitch our show, it could possibly be greater then what they have already. I’m just asking for that chance to pitch it. No one knows what it could be until they see. I just know they will love my show idea. By the way the name of my show I will reveal after contacting representation.

  16. Munir Jivanji says:

    Hi,
    I am from Kenya.

    Have an amazing concept for a reality TV Show that will definitely be popular all across for all demographics as the theme is very relatable.
    It touches very much in todays issue of Economic, Emotion and Social theme.
    It can also be Sold / Franchised to other countries as the theme is universal and presently not touched on directly by anything similar on TV.
