LA SCREENWRITER AGENTS (Here are 15 Boutique Agencies)
by Dov S-S Simens on August 19, 2015
HOLLYWOOD AGENTS FOR WRITERS
Let’s make it simple. You’ve done your writing. You are sure your script is great.
You registered & copyrighted it. You have CYA
Your script is 110-140 pages and it’s going to be a global studio spectacular… or your script is a 90-100 page wonderful low-budget independent script that has a great character arc and wonderful human sub-plots that come to an amazing resolution… or your script is a 50 page TV Drama that is going to take the “Law & Order” franchise to the next level… or your script is a 25-page Sitcom, with 5 laughs on each page, that is your writer’s sample to get you a gig as part of a tv sitcom writing-team….
…And you need an agent. However, no one at the Big 6 (ICM, CAA, UTA, APA, WME, TGA) will talk to you and you can’t even get past the mailroom.
So try one of the smaller Boutique Agents who work at a firm with 5-7 agents rather than 200-500 and usually have in their title “& Associates” which means they are likely a 1-2 person office and actually pick up the phone when it rings.
15 BOUTIQUE WRITING AGENCIES:
Plus, I am going to start from the end of the alphabet… The agents that begin with “A” are always the first ones hit upon… Let’s start with the letter “S” and go to “Z”.
PS: I will give you their name & address.
Now it is up to you for a little legwork and Google or Bing ’em and get the specific agent’s names and phone numbers.

James Wan I know that the ‘Light Out’ director has Jame Wan as a supporting person. So I dream to make my own movie like the Light Out. My movie’s advantage is use low budget because it’s the horror movie with unique idea, what will happen if the predicted picture will be happen in real life!!! You have only 3 days to be survive from the devils. If you can survive, your wish will become true. So this is bet with your life. I would like to offer film script to Hollywood but I have no way of presentation. Could you please to help me ?I am the movie director form Thailand . This movie broadcast on television. I directed it with my friend. We made the demo for present to channel of free TV in Thailand email@example.com
Thank you for every other fantastic post. Where else may just
anyone get that type of info in such an ideal manner
of writing? I’ve a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such info.
What’s up to every body, it’s my first pay a quick visit of this
website; this webpage carries amazing and genuinely good stuff in support of visitors.
If үou would like to increasе your knowleԁge
only keep visiting thiѕ weƄ site ɑnd be updated
with the lɑtest news update posted here.
I have a 10-pg. Treatment for a script. Will any agent accept this?
And, think it over: by refusing small things in your lifetime, like a compliment or someone holding the entranceway for you personally as soon as your arms
are full of packages, actually helps it be harder to receive even larger gifts that will
present themselves. The difficulties from the economic conditions nowadays make us want to have more
savings and much less out-of-pocket spending. Many lenders
are now coming for the negotiation table of short sale a little easier now this could be due
to being overwhelmed with foreclosures and more foreclosures for the horizon.
This list is bogus! Most of these companies are no longer around and have no websites.
I have been reviewin online more than 3 hours today for windows 7 snpc oa & LA SCREENWRITER AGENTS (Here are 15 Boutique Agencies) , yet
I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the net will be much more useful than ever before.
I have written a screenplay that I want to be accepted by an agent. This may be hard to believe but I want no money for it. I only want it to be made and I want the credit for it. I also want it to be dedicated to my late mother in the ending credits. I am willing to sign any legal document that says I’m giving it away for free. If an agent or film maker is interested, please contact me. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I have written and copyrighted a screenplay combining the characters of Eddie Murphy’s major movies of the 80’s, which was never done by Eddie Murphy Productions. This would revitalize his waning career.
Comment… I am from south Africa and ready to relocate. I write fantasy books
I have written a t.v show with 3 seasons background character info and a movie. Just cause I don’t live in Cali I can’t find one good manager/agent but everyone says it’s a good idea wtf.

of things from it on the topic of blogging. thanks.

Hello, my reason for writing to you is that I’ve written a script about the Beatles and the Liverpool music scene of the early sixties before the Beatles were famous and I need a Hollywood musical film writer to read the script and hopefully join me to tweak the script and ready for production.

Coverfly industry users consist of agents, managers, producers, and executives. If they find a project on the platform they respond to, they are able to contact the writers directly.
I have a screenplay, sci-fi genre’ like nothing I’ve ever seen on the market. The title is…………………….
“Peaceful Reality” (An Analogy of Man). It is five short stories being produced in a futuristic setting and all questions are answered in the last two minutes of the movie.
I wrote 2 Books (one 600 pages and the other 400 pages) about the 3000 year world history of military grand strategy thought, ideas and actions (Amazon, Barnes & Noble). I was the President of the world’s largest firearms retailer association for 40 years. The world’s biggest “gun runner” was one of my friends and clients for 20 years. I have an extensive knowledge of firearms and all weapons that were used in history. I am looking for an agent to sell me as a screen script checker and consultant for (1) strategy idea suggestions in scripts (2) tactical action suggestions (3) avoiding major mistakes in firearms, weapons, strategy and tactics usage in a script. Big mistakes often happen in mayor movies from the biggest Producers in the industry – as in Jurassic Park #1 where the “hunter” was using a shotgun to hunt dinosaurs. (4) I will work with script writers for moderate fees.
Mr Austin, I have an idea for an episode on the movie series Yellowstone ,, I would like to submit it to the writers of the show, how can I get it to them?

i am lucky to have an unlimited imagination but still no opportunities to show my talent.

I respect writers because it seems difficult to create a perfect conversation in movies, series, etc. I even find it hard to create nice essays at school. I would forward this list to my colleague who has a passion for writing. To anyone interested, please visit our website at interiordesigneredmonton.com/office-interior-design.
Managers cannot negotiate deals – you need a literary agent or an entertainment lawyer for that. While a literary manager’s role is also to get you in front of the right people, their primary focus is on your career overall. http://www.davenportconcretecontractors.com/
