It's really, really easy... all you have to do is read an entire feature screenplay and write notes. Interested? Apply to the Bluecat Screenwriting competition as they are looking for readers. Here's their ad'


Quoted Text
SCREENPLAY READERS. Our friends at BlueCat Screenplay Competition [www.bluecatscreenplay.com] seek readers. Please note low pay. Script readers sought for international screenwriting contest. Read features, pilots and short scripts and write written feedback on the script. Preferred qualifications include having a film degree and/or professional coverage experience. $20 per feature screenplay. You will be asked to demonstrate your coverage skills as a part of the application process. For immediate consideration, please submit a letter of query and resume.



Now you know who is actually reading your shit. People in a rush to justify $20. Wow. And I thought I was low paid. I'll never grumble again.

No wonder they like plenty of white space.

"Now when we used the $ symbol, we didn't mean to imply those were United States dollars."

The first time I saw this ad I'm pretty sure it was an ISA notification.

I'm looking for a job right now and was offered 16.50 for over-the-phone translation, no benefits after and if I complete a one-month training for that. And only then they'll decide if it's half-time of full-time job. I already went through several stages of testing)

Got to mention I would have to travel for an hour and twenty-five minutes per google map app for that.

And I'm not underqualified or anything, it's just job market is tough these days.

Thanks for posting, Dustin. I might want to apply actually.

It was a lead sent by Screenwriting Staffing, but here is a link to the same ad on Indeed:

That's real work. I know the market is tough as I'm playing too, but I have my limits. I'd have to read too many scripts per day to make this work.

I've never been impressed by BlueCat's notes. Now I know why.

I charge $100 for personal consultations. Even when I was writing coverage, I was making $50 per script. $20 is a joke.

And I thought the thread title was a lead in to a different type of joke.

Ba-dum-dum!
