Saturday, May 21 2PM- Scriptfest - Burbank Marriott Hotel
Got plans for May 21st? Well, cancel 'em! 'Cause you're not going to want to miss this. We're very proud to be bringing back Agent's Hot Sheet - Live! to Scriptfest.
As many of you know, I wrote the Agent's Hot Sheet column for a decade for Creative Screenwriting magazine (and you can buy those collected columns as an e-book right here.) It was the most insanely awesome opportunity one could hope for, like screenwriting school times a zillion. Every month I got to chat with the top motion picture and TV literary reps in the biz about whatever the heck I wanted -- and then I coalesced all that into a column brimming with crucial intelligence for any screenwriting trying to break in.
Ten years of that, let me tell you, you learn a thing or two about the biz.
Thus we are ecstatic to present AGENT'S HOT SHEET - LIVE! We'll be asking five leading agents and managers all sorts of questions relevant to you -- namely, how the hell can you get their attention? What should you (and shouldn't you) be writing now? Is there any money to be made in new media? Should you convert your spec feature to a TV pilot? How important is source material? (Hint: very.) All this, plus your questions, in a rollicking, no-BS 90 minute panel.
