Considering you've only made 2 posts then I'm a tad worried about this.
If you have a valid web site, for your company I mean, possess a valid industrial legal document which is fair to both parties regarding releasing said screenplay and financial payment for same then this is OK..
You need to show a little more evidence of who you are and what company you represent. Alternatively, if you are a video or film student and simply wish to locate a scriptwriter to write you a script then whichever it is I would like you to put your cards on the table and print the details in your posting – even if it is a legitimate website so interested parties can be directed to communicate with you there.
Coming here and only making two posts does suggest the opposite and may be construed as suspicious. That is, you are attempting to ‘rip off’ a writer.. If you are legitimate then fair play to you.. But please release a little more information of who you are and why you require the screenplay and if you have a web site that writers can be directed to.
This would remove any suspicions and be above board and business-like..
Who are you? Why do you need a script? And do you have a business web site we can visit?
Greg Alverado actually posted here before. I don't know what happened tp his old account or why he has a new one.
We discussed him producing 'Suicide.' He told me he was going to e-mail a release form to me. I asked him to send samples of his work also. A few weeks later, he told he produced it and that I was going to get my copy. Shortly after that, he told me he lost the only copy of it.
We're a community of writers here and only want stuff to be fair..
It may be a good idea to have rules for this kind of posts where Don, for example, can check out the text first before the poster makes a request, just so correct and above-board information is provided to third-parties.. I'd expect the writer to act in a professional manner too..
It works both ways..
I've been ripped off writing scripts for radio and wasn't paid for them! Just don't want to see this happen to another writer..
Em.. Maybe Don will read this.. What do you think Don?
I have no business, i'm just a recent graduate of film school.
If you are worried that I'm not legit then don't give me your script.
I am serious about this, $200 for a simpe short script.
Thank You for those who did email me a script.
If you're a recent graduate of film school then why didn't you say this in your intial post?
This was what I was getting at.. If you state from the onset who you are and what you want then maybe we understand better and people will feel more confortable communicating with you because they would have that information.. That's all I was asking...
If writers want to write screenplays for no payment then this is up to them. If I write a screenplay for nothing, no payment, ziltch, then the filmmaker better be good. I'd want somekind of payment, even a DVD copy of the project which I could use to promote myself as a writer. I wouldn't write for nothing at all..
The guy never even mentioned what length of script he wanted, just a crappy setting with a few props and that's it..
I've got nothing against writers negociating with people wanting their scripts but I'd like to see they're up front first.. A bit of information about the proposed film or video and who was making it would have been nice..
It will state if someone wants to buy or a script or wants one they must contact me with all their information. If i see it is legitament and worthy enough i will allow them to post a thread and see what happens.
