Inktip lead – a new urgency to finish the script

So we’ve got one or two scripts up on InkTip.com… have had many prodcos read the synopses, one or two read the script. No earth shattering leads from the service so far.

BUT we do subscribe to the InkTip newsletter, in which we get leads on prodcos who are looking for specific kinds of writers or scripts. This week’s newsletter came through, and there’s a surprisingly good fit for this current project we’re working on…

We can’t give away the details of our creature, but I think it’s safe to say this: our story follows two young couples who buy a cabin in the Northern California woods, only to find the woods are teeming with strange mythological beasties.

Today’s InkTip lead is from a prodco looking for a horror film that takes place in Northern California, and features beasties of a mythological type.

So we ask ourselves — how many people are there with scripts that specifically suited to this prodco’s request? We’re hoping, “few”.

Problem is, we can’t respond to the InkTip posting without having the script completed and WGA registered (InkTip rules). So we’ve made a renewed commitment to complete the script in one week. We’ve got 61 pages done, so if we can average 4-5 pages a day, we can be at our 90 goal inside 7 days. Hopefully in time to contact said prodco.

And if we don’t get in with them, we’ll still be done – which is always a good thing.

So afterburners on…
