I want an agent for my movie scripts. And the WGA web site has a list of agents that are mostly literary agents, and I can't discern if any of them are movie script/film agents. So I found this OTHER web site, and I'm a little suspicious.
The American Screenwriters Association or the ASA.
I tried searching the index here at AW, but the ASA isn't in there.
The ASA web site has spelling and gramatical errors. And when I clicked on the link for "agents," a pop up box came up asking me to ponder if I really need an agent. And it said information about agents is available in the members section.
This all sounds really screwy.
Then it says I can join for free. So I did. I filled out the free application and joined and they asked me for no information of any real importance (just name and e-mail and street address). No SS# no credit cards.
And then I went to the members area to see about any listings for agents. And the hyperlink in that section sent me to a totally different web site where I have to pay a fee for a listing of agents.
So what gives here?????
Some more red flags: they have on the front/home page of the site the promotional/huckster language: "As seen on CNN, Fox, Larry King Live, & ABC Disney.com"
