An example of the second step with a writer might be, “I see you have a Romantic Comedy and I liked your log line. This placed in Nicholl. Can you tell me a bit more about this screenplay?”
“I’d like to hear more about you and your portfolio of work. Please query me with #ScreenPit Request in the Subject.”
If you read a log line on #ScreenPit and are interested, go to the writer’s Twitter profile. DM’s will be open to make contact. From that, you can request material through email with the subject matter being “#ScreenPit Request”. This is generally how they do it for the novel writing pitch day known as “PitMad.
Many of these screenwriters have websites or host profiles on NetworkISA or Script Revolution & have been told to list that link in their Twitter bio for the event day.
Are you on IMDb or on a company website? The writer also needs to protect their work from anyone who is posing as a producer/manager/exec. When requesting a script feel free to send them your release form.
Once you develop a connection with the writer, ask for whatever materials you need:
- The One Pager (all writers have been told to have these handy)
- The Synopsis, Treatment, Beat Sheet
- The first 10 pages of the Script or full PDF
- A Query if they are seeking representation
- The writer’s portfolio of projects
- Pitch Decks, if possible
If you give an email address to a writer, ask them to use this subject ScreenPit Request so you are sure you requested this email exchange.
Good luck in finding something amazing!
