The following was posted on the message board of a genre organization I am a member of. What do you guys think? I tried my best, but I can't find anything about this Scriptinbox. Is my Google-Fu broken?
A group of ambitious assistants to top Hollywood producers/managers have started a shared script drop box designed to unearth the next big project for their bosses.
The address is scriptinbox (at) gmail.com
below is the criteria for what they are looking for:"I have set up this email account and shared it with a select number my colleagues, who are all affiliated with major entertainment & management companies. We are reluctant to put the names of these companies forward as they all have non-solicitation policies for legal reasons.
We are on a mission to get that next great script and we are willing to do the reading leg work to make it happen. I will give any script sent to me at least 20 pages. Depending of the volume of work submitted, we are also looking at putting interns to get coverage done.
Specifically we will be searching for the following:
* On behalf managers seeking people to rep, we will be looking for any distinct screenplay or tv pilot, which shows an authentic voice and is a riveting, sophisticated and an emotionally compelling read. Genre and commercial appeal are less important for this category. The more distinct your voice as a writer the better. Show us your craft!
* On behalf of producers looking for studio projects to sell, we will be looking for projects (Spec scripts, novels and comic books) with: A guy with a gun on the cover (strong male lead & action), High Concept or Concept Driven, Alien elements, Apocalyptic elements, Sci-Fy, Time travel, Time Slip or futuristic elements (ie Source Code or Inception or Looper), Strong set pieces, Grounded Demonic Horror, monster in the house type films (Aliens) & high concept comedy.
* We will also be looking for contained and low budget Horror, & sci-fy, as well as mid budget range action for the independent market. (this market is clogged with "generic" scripts. The more distinct the idea, the better the chances of cut through.)
In your response include a PDF of your work, your contact details, a log line and one (short) sentence on how you think your work fits into the above categories
We will not be able to give any feedback.
