When would you like them by?

What are you really looking to spend on this? I have a friend in Pittsburgh that legit makes me tear up with her scripts. So i the price is right I'm sure she would be highly interested.

Sorry... I offer what I'm willing to pay and I def. don't quote prices on something I haven't read. I receive many submissions from many people from all directions all the time. If your friend is that good, then have her submit the first ten.

Eh. I doubt she is going to want anyone reading without having some type of a ball park estimate.

Usually people have a budget they are willing to spend on a script, they usually don't bias based from person to person.

So I'll hold off on that.

Well, I don't think it would be too out of line to ask you what budget production you're looking to make. Is it above $500K? Below? Over a million?

And I ask this next question most respectfully, but who are you? I highly doubt your name is Jersey Shore John, but I could be wrong ;)

I run a company and I seek products for my use. It's obvious that you don't own or run a company. I'm sure that a work by an unsold unknown has less value than a work by an a-lister. Good luck!

Jerseyshorejohn
03-03-2013, 06:24 PM
Again, good luck!

Director
03-03-2013, 06:26 PM
Who is the a-lister?

Jerseyshorejohn
03-03-2013, 06:32 PM
Again, good luck. Is it okay that I probe for screenplays without showing my birth certificate? If I want to finish reading someone's work, I'll contact them.

Director

Hey Jersey Shore John, I don't need luck. I depend on my talent. And any reputable producer (I guess that's what you want us to believe you are), would not swagger into a forum of his peers, especially a complete unknown, disrespecting people. If you're looking for scripts, what don't you have your a-lister agent shop for you?

Josh Hughes
03-03-2013, 06:37 PM
What company do you run?

Director
03-03-2013, 06:38 PM
He runs an a-lister company. Whatever that is!

Havey
03-03-2013, 06:41 PM
You realize I was just asking you how much your budget was for the script correct?

I'm 20 years old. I'm a freelance film maker and I've directed quite a few short films and music videos.

Nope. I do not own my own company. But I am really unsure why that means anything.

Again, good luck! I don't divulge what I'm willing to pay before reading. I'm the guy with the checkbook and I'm not a producer. I find scripts and that's all people need to know until there is decision to purchase.

Director
03-03-2013, 06:44 PM
OMG Havey, you don't run your own COMPANY!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

HELP!!! Somebody get me away from this non-a-lister!

If anyone is interested in submitting their script, please ignore the mockers and just submit it please.

Director
03-03-2013, 06:49 PM
BTW, who the hell is George Snow?

This is funny-- straight up jersey shore drama.

03-03-2013, 06:52 PM
I was not referring to you Havey.

Havey
03-03-2013, 06:54 PM
I'm not mocking you lol.

I was just simply saying that I wasn't going to refer my friend to you without having more information on possible pay.

Director
03-03-2013, 06:55 PM
Ok, let me see if I can pen this down. His first name is John. He's from Jersey. He has a checkbook. He's an a-lister?!? And no cursing.

Hmmm...Could it be the ghost of Johnny Holmes, now converted and looking to make a Mormon porno film?

Director
03-03-2013, 06:57 PM
Can I buy a vowel?

Jerseyshorejohn
03-03-2013, 06:59 PM
Havey, I get your point. I'm not a producer. I can't talk on an open thread sorry. I know some are able to quote figures but I'm cannot. I wish your friend great success.

Director

Anyone that would submit their script to a stranger on the Internet, probably deserves to have it ripped off. Now, I'm not saying JerseyShoreJohn would do that, but seeing how there seems to be some obscure reason why we can't know who he is, just makes it somewhat suspect.

And who is George Snow, anyway? Doesn't show up on IMDB. Neither does a movie called "A Happy Median".

And I'm sure "director" is somebody's real name! Lol ! I suggest to all writers to protect their work with the Writers Guild of America. WGAWest if you live west of the Mississippi and WGAEast if you live east of the Mississippi. That way your work is protected from cons. It's easier and cheaper to buy a script then to have court battles on copyright infringement! Please ignore my FMForum stalker.

Director

My real name is Dain Turner, just about everyone on here knows that. You can Google me if you like. Or find me on the IMDB. I have nothing to hide.

Yes, we're all familiar with the WGA, many of us are members. But thanks for looking out for us.

And you should go back and read your original posts, as well as mine. We were being respectful, and merely asking you "respectfully" who you are, and what the budget is.

As far as stalking, don't flatter yourself.

Oh, and you forgot to add "Good Luck" on your last post ;)

I don't know. I'd rather see credentials first. Anyone can come on here saying that they do this and that and not really do anything they say they do. I'm not bustin your chops by any means, but in this day and age, there's a lot of fake people out here and I can understand why some folks on here are wanting a little more info.

Hey Jersey Shore John and Director. Please don't fight like this. It kinda leaves a bad taste in the mouth (At least in my mouth)

Hi Jersey,
I want to submit my script. I live in India, shall I register the script with WGA? I already have it registered with Film Writer's Association, Mumbai, India.

I agree with Havey and Director. It is not unreasonable to ask for credentials, or a budget. If you are looking to spend less than we, the writers, are looking for, it saves us the time and trouble of submitting. Also, it gives us an idea of who exactly will be looking at our work.

Also, who is George Snow? If they are a user here perhaps you should have them leave feedback for you. Feedback goes a long way.

It is actually not normal to ask for a "screenplay" without any sort of real info or at least some numbers, whether that is the budget you plan on using on the film, the budget you have for the script, etc... It's very rare to just say "come on guys, send them in!" - So you should expect some back-lashing from the users here. I own my own company, matter of fact I own several companies....
