Re: New Production Company Building Network


Comedy often gets overlooked in preference of more serious scripts. I have a 90 page pdf comedy. You don't absolutely have to have some really serious piece of script. There's a company on here called Tradewind productions. From what I remember reading, I think what it said was that after 18 years and 30,000 scripts they found 3000. I went and had a look. I've actually applied to them. Not realising they only do drama and documentary, lol. There's another one called Embryo Films they had the same type of problem. If you can constantly keep the turnover coming in with comedies and good scripts, you're succeeding. Go looking for the big diamond the size of a lump of coal but don't miss the little gems on the way. It's very difficult to get in even with a good well comedy script. I doubt this will get me anywhere. It's like begging. I begin to despise production co's like this that say they're looking for new scripts. And then they just throw away even the good comedies in favour of something that they personally like. That's not necessarily good business sense. It's just going after the big diamond and missing the little gems.

Actually, it was Embryo that said they have reviewed 30,000 scripts in 18 years and only found 45 good ones.

Re: New Production Company Building Network


Brief Paragraph:

I write, direct, act, and produce. I've won awards for both my middy, "Blossoms of Faith" and my libretto, "Headless". I currently work on a team for Showtime, and I'm a freelance writer, script reader, and teacher. I'd like to write and act exclusively. Creating my own feature film is awesome, but I'd prefer to write and pass the script along - allowing all of the constituents to contribute their magic. [sign in to see URL]

Re: New Production Company Building Network


I’m a maverick South African filmmaker with a niche for writing and directing genre-driven films that are intense, visceral and gritty; drawing inspiration from a wide range of relevant social issues, from the fight against animal poaching, and the trafficking in human body parts, to the use of Private Military Contractors and child soldiers.
