iUniverse (arm of Author solutions) recently announced it was offering a service to help authors develop their books into screenplays and enter them into “PitchFest” events, link.
While this is interesting, I have already developed a screenplay, called “Do Ask, Do Tell: Epiphany”, along with Hauge analysis (link). My material is so eclectic that it doesn’t lend itself to cookie-cutter techniques.
There is a certain culture in the indie film world as to what kinds of "domestic comedy" or "dramedy" scripts get somewhere. The Duplass Brothers seem to get this right.
Some of the younger actors and producers and directors seem quite approachable on Facebook and Twitter – even given Hollywood’s “Third Party Rule”.
