it turns out that the “agent” to whom I sent my script is, well, not a scam exactly, but not on the up-and-up, either. and not that a “positive review” should make me suspicious, but hey, that’s the paranoia in me. according to Preditors and Editors, as well as a few different writers websites, the parent compant of The Screenplay Agency, has a lot of complaints about fees for this, fees for that, no delivering on promises, etc. so, even tho it is the parent company and technically not this one, I’m not going any further with these people.
anyone else who may have submitted to them should do the same research. sorry!
on a more positive note, the WGAw now has an actual list of people to contact at various shows regarding their training program. I was all set to call a few this afternoon, given the west coast time difference, when my phone crapped out on me. and seeing that I didn’t want their caller id to show an east coast phone number, I need to get a replacement phone/battery this weekend and call after the holiday next week. damnit.
here we go again around the mulberry bush.
