    Smile [Packager] Global PSD

    I just received an unsolicitated request for one of my scripts.

    Has anyone heard of Adrianne Casey with Global PSD?

    Thanks Iron Mike

    This Global PSD?

    If so, it looks like a printer/packager/book manufacturer. Not a publisher, and I can't see that it has anything to do with the film industry.

    Unless they're based on published or produced work, unsolicited requests for manuscripts or scripts should be viewed with suspicion.

    Ms. Casey is Sales Manager with Global PSD.

    I can't fathom why she/Global would contact an individual about a script, since they contract with publishers/producers, not writers.

    Yes Ms. Casey is the Sales Manager of Global PSD but...

    I am also President of ADRE, which is a film production company. I contacted Iron Mike because I felt that the story line of his script was worth reading.

    Many Thanks,

    Adrianne

    People who don't know what they're doing are forever declaring themselves to be publishers. Why shouldn't they declare themselves moviemakers as well?

    Hmmm That's Interesting

    Well since were on the publishing topic, (I don't believe that I was trying to highlight that particular capability) but since you chose to bring that up, please view my publishing arm: www.channelphotographics.com and note that one of my ongoing successful publishing efforts is David LaChapelle, heard of him?

    www.globalpsd.com is the mother-company for our publishing concerns and with any due diligence you would have discovered this link in the development section.

    Blind irrational passion is just what I'd look for in someone who was handling my work, you betcha.

    Representing someone doing those things, on the other hand, takes experience, knowledge, business sense, and connections. Which you haven't demonstrated.

    I'm not finding further mention of ADRE. Looks like Ms. Casey's current side project is real estate broker.

    Has anyone had dealings with Global? My sister just got a contract with them on one of her children's books and we want to make sure that they are legit. The last anyone posted was two years ago.
