entertainment industry coach question 296: Should I let someone produce my feature film without paying me for the script?
Tuesday, December 22, 2009
2010 from my perspective is a surprise... it’s an adventure. The people who will get jobs, who will build the foundation for a long career, are those who create goals and find out how to achieve them.
First you have to know what you want. Then you’re going to wonder, well how is that possible? That’s when you have to invest in learning like you do when you find out there’s new technology you need to learn.
The top 10% don’t “let a year go by.” They plan it out and they reach out for help to find solutions. I can’t predict what will happen with the economy or the number of jobs available. I can teach people to do everything they can do, so they feel proud of what they are accomplishing.
You will always get ROI (return on influence) when invest in yourself.
I can tell you in 2010 there will be:
1. Networking events to attend
2. People who will be willing to mentor others
3. New contacts to be had
4. Job opportunities for those who are willing to do what it takes to get them
5. New technology to learn
The question is, do you have the skills to maximize these opportunities, or are you going to spend 2010 doing exactly what you've always done?
In 2010, I invite you to release restriction and start expanding because if you don’t, somebody else will. You have to take advantage of the experts who can help you so you can get an edge over your competition!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A spec script is a "speculative" screenplay, one that the Variety slanguage dictionary defines as being "shopped or sold on the open market, as opposed to one commissioned by a studio or production company."
Spec scripts are written for various reasons:
- by writers who hope to have a script optioned and eventually purchased by producers or studios;
- by writer/directors who want to direct a film themselves;
- by amateur writers hoping to convince a literary agent to represent them or a producer to hire them.
