This app will not work without script writers submitting material -- so check it out:

Ever wonder who picks the movie ideas? Now you can tell the movie makers what you want to see. The concept is simple. Look at an original screenplay concept, rate the idea, and let your review be counted.

The biggest complaint about Hollywood is, "they have completely run out of ideas." What few newish ideas get made into movies are usually not worth the ticket price. A general dissatisfaction is voiced, "who comes up with these awful ideas?" or "is that the best they can do?"

Producers do not have the time or resources to scan through the thousands of original scripts available. What if you allowed millions of movie fans to choose the movie concepts they want to see?

Our new application 'The Producer' allows Facebook members to vote for original feature movie concepts and tell the world what they would and would not pay money to see.

The idea is to attract real producers and production companies to select the most popular ideas for development. If the many voices of the 99% have a say in the future of movies and their selection, an instant fan base is achieved -- and movie makers will take heed.

If you love movies and the concept of this application, spread the word and get your friends to join in and vote with enthusiasm.  Click the Like button and help promote the idea.

What happens to the screenplays you review? If they get picked up and made into a movie, we will keep you up to date on production and release dates. After all, you helped get the movie made!

SPECIAL MESSAGE TO AMATEUR SCREENWRITERS

Tired of endless submissions and script contests? We know there are not enough production companies in the world to look at all of the original screenplays from unknown writers. Any call for submissions is likely to crash an e-mail server or overload the mailman, and it is so easy to get lost in the crowd.

What if you could pitch the concept to the popcorn loving populous? Just because you think it is the greatest concept ever, doesn't make it true! However, if the people buying the tickets rate the concept high, and even more, state that they would buy a ticket to see the finished product, Hollywood will take notice. Think about it, a ready-made audience committed to seeing a movie they personally feel responsible for getting "Green-Lighted".

So, is your original script and concept the best? Is it worth making into a feature film? Are you willing to put it to the test?

You need a Facebook account to submit a pitch, summary, and the first couple of scenes on 'The Producer' site for review by everyone:

https://apps.facebook.com/the_producer/

Facebook users who sign up search the submissions, rate the concepts (1 to 5 stars) and select whether they would see the finished product (note that you can also sign up and rate concepts).  Get your friends to join in, post on every writers discussion board, forum, and blog you belong to, and help promote the idea.

You retain all rights to the material you post (Terms and Conditions), and every script you post has your contact information so any interested production company can contact you directly about your submission.

Most importantly, if your screenplay gets purchased, let us know so we can tell everybody who voted for your concept that they helped get your movie made, and when it will be released.

You get a chance to showcase your creativity, movie buffs get to help pick the films of tomorrow, and everybody gets the power to help shape the future of the movie industry. Everybody gets the chance to play the role of The Producer!

Good on you for giving the app business a go and good luck with getting scripts posted and rated.  

The one thing I would suggest is that you get rid of that yellow colour, it's painful to look at.

So what if you are dealing with a Facebook Luddite such as myself who doesn't like to (and won't) download any of that stuff?

Is there some way that I (and busy, like-minded producers?) can just look at the page without linking to a bunch of stuff that does God-knows-what?

Good question-- our stuff links to nothing -- you go to the app on facebook -- nothing to download (like farmville) as it is all online.

So no crud to download or link to or personal info required -- or anything else super annoying!!!

Browse the script ideas to your hearts content -- vote for stuff you like (if you want to) --- and most importantly --- anyone who posts a script puts their contact info on their stuff so they can be contacted directly.

The app is to the benefit of script writers to get exposure -- if the idea catches on and gets popular it will provide just that -- and as we only launched a week ago it is too soon to say.

Just uploaded the first few pages of MISSION STYLE.

I did find out, in order to link it back to your home page, you need to like it. It then gives you the option to add a caption. I simply put in what a cool site I thought it was and it created a PRODUCERS link at the home page with my caption.

Pretty cool.

Thanks!

By the way, someone on my facebook page tried to go to my script via the link on my page and she said it wouldn't let her.

Might want to check into why. I know this is brand new and I'm willing to help out where I can so let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Also just checked and it doesn't appear that your rating was on there either. Just to let you know.

Cool...

Never tried a direct link -- tried it now -- will check into why it goes only to main page...

You need to be rated by a few people then an average will show...

As for helping -- first we need scripts -- then as much general interest as possible...

Hey Bert,

When I clicked on the link above, it took me directly to the page. No download what so ever.
It also didn't ask (like so many app's do) for a releasal of your information in order to view the App.

I did a quick logline and summery then copied and pasted the first few pages of my script and it was there for review.

It's actually a pretty cool site.

I thought it important to bump this thread. Many weekend readers were not on when this was postd last week.

It's a pretty cool concept that a new poster (sloanyoung) put up to try and get more exposure to screenwriters.

I put up one of mine up there (Rancorium) a few days ago. It's going to take awhile for people to use the app, so I'm not expecting much of anything. I don't put much stock in it right now. I'll most likely put up one or two more, then forget about the app...
