Finding a screenwriting manager, pitchfests, and the long game of being a screenwriter, with Paul Zeidman

FullSizeRenderJustin and Paul Zeidman discuss the long game of the screenwriter business and what lessons Paul has learned so far. The two connected a few years back via Done Deal Pro, when Justin was just started to look at the Blacklist and was looking for people who’d found their managers on the Blacklist 2.0. Paul was one such person, and a friendship bloomed from their first coffee.

The two discuss when Inktip works (what budget? what kind of scripts?), email blasts to managers and producers, and what you can learn from pitches.

Check out Paul’s amazing blog at:

He has a series of awesome interviews with Script Consultant,s so if you’re interested in getting notes on a script, that’s a good place to start!
