WriteMovies Academy Phase 6 – Production, The Wrap, and the Long Game

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Know how to work with producers and agents – or become one!

Writers might like to think of their work as somehow perfect and separate from the gritty realities of the world, and not dependent on them. In reality, all success depends on working within the industry and the wider marketplace – but if you can master them, you can get the system to work for you, not the other way round.

Enrolment open – Phase 6 now live!.

Price: $500

About the Academy…

Maybe you have an original story, with great characters, but something is missing… Or, you’ve got a great plot, but the characters don’t seem interesting or believable… Maybe you have a great idea, but you’re not sure how to start… Or, you’ve just completed a first draft and you know it needs work… Or, you’re just not sure!

These are problems many screenwriters encounter. But when it’s just you and your computer, they are often hard to solve. When is your story ready to write a first draft? Or when do you know your script is finally ready to send out to attract that great talent agent or name actor? That’s what we’ll be helping you with…

WriteMovies is offering a new service to screenwriters. Instead of just giving feedback, we’ll guide you through the writing and pitching process, whatever stage you’re in. Whether it’s your first screenplay and all you have is an idea, or you’re an experienced screenwriter with a first draft, we’ll guide you through writing and rewriting. Below are all of the Phases available to you.

Terms and Conditions:

  • Note: We no longer accept checks due to issues with fraud. Please use the Paypal options when participating.
  • There are no physical items deliverable under our services – all reports will be provided by email in standard document formats.
  • Refunds or cancellations must be requested within 14 days and/or before any public announcement of winning entries and/or before receipt of any completed Consulting report (which will typically be within 7-14 days). Disagreement with the opinion and suggestions of the Analyst is not accepted as valid grounds for a refund, however we are happy to receive other feedback and enquiries.
  • If you agree to us pitching your script, you can earn up to $1 million in option monies from the A-List producers we work with. If an established studio/production company with theatrical credits wishes to option the script, we will fly the winner to Los Angeles and pay (up to $4,000) for their accommodation. We will pitch the top three projects to relevant production companies (such as Neal Moritz Productions, Bruckheimer Films, Scott Rudin Prods.) and studios (Paramount, Warner Bros, Universal, etc.). You keep ALL the option/sales money up to $1m. The Grand Prize winner is also pitched to several literary agencies and management companies as well as non-US companies to increase the chances of a sale. We will pitch your script to companies such as CAA, ICM, William Morris Endeavor, ACME, The Gage Group, etc.
