For me, another factor is whether or not you are paid for the option.  I will not go beyond 6 mos for unpaid. Will go up to 12 for paid


Yeah, the $1 thing is BS!

The last few sales of my short scripts have been two year options, but I've been happy to accommodate this as they've paid me. Money always shows who is serious about producing and who are just hedging their bets.

I've used Inktip twice and I had the same experience as Dave.  Nada.  Zilch. Zip.

I've had a feature optioned, and it was from someone finding it here on SS.  I've had three shorts produced, and all three were found here on SS (all three were ones I gave a free use of the script to get made).  I've had a ton of looks of scripts I've written both here and on Script Revolution, and a lot of inquiries, but they're almost always for shorts that are low budget and that I'm basically giving away just so I can create content on my iMDB page.

I've looked at the Tracking Board and Screenwriter Staffing, and I put a couple of scripts on the BlackList and got mostly 7's on the ratings, but nothing ever became of it. So i've basically just said the heck with it and just post my stuff here and on Script Revolution.

But my interest in all of this is different than maybe most of yours.  For me this is a hobby, an interest I enjoy. It's not something that consumes me or that I want to make a career.  I'm afraid I would starve pretty quickly if I tried to make it as a full-time writer.


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

Agree. I think I have tried them all. Inktip. Blacklist, Virtual Pitchfest, etc. Any success or interest I have ever has come from here, Script Revolution and I have gotten several queries from folks off of contests.

My wet dream script selling site continues to be the one where they act as a virtual agent. Something like they offer to post scripts for free, they filter for the ones they like, they market to producer and only get $$ when the writer gets $$.

Looks like Inktip are going to be changing a few things this year...

This is from the latest newsletter.


One of the perennial questions we answer at InkTip is, "What service is the best?” Between our script listing, Preferred Newsletter, and (until recently) InkTip Magazine, there are a lot of choices our writers make.

Today, we are happy to announce InkTip Pro, a monthly subscription that combines our existing services into a single, simpler package.

With InkTip Pro, you can make one of your scripts in your Script Library live to Industry Professionals. As long as your membership is active, you have no expiration dates. Do you have a lot of scripts? We'll offer additional live scripts for you to add to your membership. In addition, InkTip Pro will include 6+ weekly script requests like our Preferred Newsletter service. You'll be able to pitch to these requests through the weekly newsletter or on InkTip directly.

We'll have more information for you next week. Stay tuned!

Seems to me more and more companies are doing what SS has done for 20+ years, offering a place to post your scripts for anyone to find. Only SS does it for free though. Script Revolution too, I guess.

InkTip IMO, is losing as others start to offer the same thing. I have a script posted there right now and never have there been such low responses. I won't post a script there again.

Yeah - they won't be seeing $$ from me. Nothing against them - I just have not seen them as a successful model.

I continue to wait for my holy grail site. In my view, if any of these thought that they had a real inroad to producers - they would abandon the dream-making fee-based service and get right down to the virtual agent service - they market your scripts and take a percent when they are sold. Thing about it - if they really had a success rate any where near to what they market - they stop chasing the monthly fees and start chasing commissions.
