UNSOLICITED MANUSCRIPTS (Get an Agent. Sell Your Script. 6 Agencies & 246 Literary Agents)

UNSOLICTED MANUSCRIPTS vs SOLICITED MANUSCRIPTS

Wrote a Screenplay. Registered & Copyrighted it. Got your pitch fine tuned to an “Elevator Pitch” and are ready to pitch it to anyone who knows someone in Hollywood.

So, what are you waiting for?

AGENTS-2

Oh, you heard you need an agent and if you call an agent cold, without a formal introduction, that he/she won’t talk to you.

Oh, you also heard that you can’t even mail it for they “Do Not Accept Unsolicited Manuscripts”.

F*ck, you don’t need permission to phone anyone and you definitely don’t need permission to mail anything to anyone.

But, again, you heard that they “Do Not Accept Unsolicited Manuscripts”.

So what the heck are you going to do… Wait-To-Be-Solicited. That definitely ain’t gonna happen.

It is my solid belief that the reason that 100% of the Screenwriting & Directing, even Acting, careers never get launched is that the individual is “Waiting to be Solicited”.

Now lets get into action as in Lights-Camera-Action.

Back to: You wrote a script. You believe it is great. You have a great Grabber on Line 6 of Page-1 and another great Grabber on the Last Line of Page-1 that is going to make the “peruser” (not calling him a reader…yet) want to turn-the-page and keep reading. You’ve Registered & Copyrighted it.

Again, “So what are you waiting for?”

Oh I fuhggot “You’re waiting to be solicited”.

Cut-it-Out! Cut-it-Out! Cut-it-Out!

Pick up the phone and dial. Photocopy the script with a great Cover Letter stating “Your speech at So-and-So Film Festival totally changed my life and I wrote this script because of you…. yadda-yadda-yadda” or “Once you peruse the first page you’ll know why it’s great…. yadda-yadda-yadda”

Dial-The-Phone.

Mail-The-Script.

All I know is if you don’t it is 100% Guaranteed that you WILL NEVER SELL IT.

Now, why not start at the top.

Below is a list of the Top 6 Literary Agencies, with office in Hollywood, New York & London, that have at least 246.

Smile & Dial… and Turn It Over To God.

What do you have to lose?

A-G-A-I-N: All I know if you “wait to be solicited”… nothing is ever going to happen.

So, lets start the ball rolling and Smile & Dial and remember the only thing better than ACCEPTANCE is REJECTION… the worst thing is NON-ACTION.

      Ray- did you receive follow up?

      1. My screenplay titled DIAMOND OF HOPE is a prequel to a famous and successful Hollywood movie “Blood Diamond” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. I know my story is compelling and has timely content relevant to the ongoing current issues trending in the news media. I am e-mailing my screenplay to agents instead of mailing it.

  2. This is so refreshing to find you!

  3. my name is Esaie Prince; I wrote a movie script: FROG &TOAD that franchise is worth over 2 BILLION$– another script STORY OF LEGENDS “BEAST WORLD” athletes can transform into ANIMALS OF THE FIELD, when they are on the field! both scripts deal with with NATURE & REAL World issues. IF YOU CAN HELP 561-420-1814 GOD BLESS

  5. Paweł says:

    Skynet, Ultron and the Constructor of the Matrix include governments in three empires. The last hope of humanity is the Archangel – a program that controls the state of Zion. – I have an interesting idea, but is it profitable for a film studio?

  7. Moone says:

    After reading some of your replies, I would have to say that I feel a lot of you have a long way to go before submitting your work to anybody, unsolicited or solicited. But stay focused, never give up, and look for unbiased people to review and critique your work before submission. There are a few sites that I would recommend if you are looking to get your work out there or looking for writing gigs. One is networkisa.org. For the low monthly payment of $10, this site allows you to submit your work to a variety of different production companies that accept work from all different genres. If you would like any advice, or if you would like me to review some of your work before submission feel free to email me at: karmap1990@gmail.com. I can give you some good feedback on your logline, synopsis, or screenplay before you submit it.
    Have a good day.

  8. Joshua M Liddell says:
