Anybody see what ScriptHop just announced?

They call it The Gauntlet. Potentially 17 reads across 3 rounds. A Golden Buzzer. A Seal of Consensus.

$380.

The concept just makes me smile. Feels like a brilliant bit of marketing.

Would love to drop a couple of scripts into the process...but, man, that's a lot of dough. I mean, I understand why it's priced at that level, and it's a good deal if you advance up the chain...but even though it's reasonable, it's still pricey.

(Didn't know where to post this. Hope this is the right section of the board.)

I saw this the other day.

Not sure but I think you have to be repped to even pass go.Hmm, might be wrong about that. $60 per year and on top of the script fee.

It will be interesting to see how this goes.

Dave, thanks for sharing that.  I watched and it seemed pretty interesting.  I didn’t hear them say anything where you had to have an agent to submit.  

The thing that stood out to me is that they were clear to point out that this is not a guarantee to a pathway into a studio, even if the script does well at all the various levels.  What it does is allows various readers in the gauntlet to possibly take the project and run with it, but there’s no guarantee that the end result is a contract to have your script made.

But here’s the part that really hit home — he said you could spend thousands of dollars entering scripts in competitions with no guarantee that they will be read by anyone of consequence and that you’re competing with thousands of other people who are trying to get their script in front of eyeballs as well.  The odds are stacked against you.  At least with this, you’re not competing with anyone other than yourself and you do have the eyeballs of people within the industry.

They will try to match up your script with the type of readers that would be interested, so e.g., a comedy reader is not going to read your horror script or vice versa.

My only thought is that if you do submit to this, you better have your script in A+++++ condition.  I can’t imagine flaming out the first time you submit and resubmitting that script again after you get notes back. But overall it sounds pretty interesting.


Some of my scripts:

Bounty (TV Pilot) -- Top 1% of discoverable screenplays on Coverfly
I'll Be Seeing You (short) - OWC winner
The Gambler (short) - OWC winner
Skip (short) - filmed
Country Road 12 (short) - filmed
The Family Man (short) - filmed
The Journeyers (feature) - optioned
