Talent Scout International Management is a sister business of WriteMovies created by our founder Alex Ross. It’s a boutique agency that concentrates on representing international clients – those whose work can sell in the US and EU. If you come in the top 3 of any of our main competitions and prove your professionalism and quality as a writer, we take you into the fold at TSIM and use our extensive longstanding networks in the industry to pitch and sell your scripts, or sign them up to develop them ourselves with a view to getting your film made with us as producers. (This is how Alex’s film THE LIST was made and is currently coming to fruition for MAGNETIC, written by another WriteMovies winner Carolyn Kras, with producer Diane Nabatoff, with Jon Amiel directing.) Alex has a long track record of successful Hollywood client management (find out more here) and previously launched the careers of writers including Andrew Niccol (THE TRUMAN SHOW, GATTACA, LORD OF WAR), Iris Yamashita (Oscar-nominated for LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA) and author Cornelia Kampf. So if you win our latest competition, or inspire us with a script you submit for consultancy, we have all the right connections to take your script to the top. Don’t miss out – enter now!

Quotes and Writing Tips
Writers need to feel a connection to their characters – it is through these characters you try and tell your story and the theme of your script. If, as the writer, you don’t feel connected to your protagonist, or don’t provide a convincing counter-argument to them through an antagonist, the audience cannot be expected to do so either.

Wow, I had a great time! it was not only informative in so many ways, but also really exciting to meet all the producers and the other writers. I must say that the winner's lunch has been the highlight of my screenplay contest experience so far. everyone was really nice and informal, i felt right at ease. it was great picking everyone's brains and hearing the stories about the industry. at one point i just got this great feeling up and down my body, thinking "wow, i'm here with real producers and writers...i'm a frickin' screen writer for sure!" I consider WriteMovies.com to be one of the premiere contests I have entered, and will gladly tell anyone who asks. I am also going to go onto the MovieBytes.com contest page and enter a very favorable report card for your contest. Thanks again, and I will stay in touch!
