This book will help you to create your own marketing plan that works best for you. This book gives tools, building blocks, maps and resources. It's a great way to get moving. Go on. Get it and see what amazing things can happen when you have a friend in the business.
Hal Croasmun's guidance is based on CURRENT market trends. And that's critical! The screenwriting marketplace is evolving faster now than it ever has--and if you're trying to sell your script using dated techniques (even from a few years ago), you're already behind. The book is a very fast and informative read. Croasmun lays out easy-to-follow steps that can LITERALLY help you launch a screenwriting career. He adds encouragement and inspiration throughout the book. It's like having a career coach whenever you need one.
Without hesitation, I give this book my highest recommendation!
"First, you get a million dollars," he advises. In other words, there is no advice about writing a screenplay -- not even advice about what kind of screenplays get funded. It is all about selling and focuses on the networking extroversion needed to market your already polished screen play and kick start your career.
I gave the book three stars because there are solid, long-term ideas about relationships and how you must cultivate them to succeed. (It is also a naked plug for the author's screenplay classes.) Most writers will probably agree that they have little stomach for the necessary schmoozing. That is why we hire agents. This book is especially useful for those who want to make a longterm career out of screenwriting -- it appears that writing is just the start, and most of the other stuff is not much fun. I must admit that I was discouraged from pursuing a film writing career after reading this book. I am a good writer, but a terrible salesman.
I have taken some of his classes through Screenwriting U. I wanted to write the best script possible. I found that once I started classes, I had an ongoing relationship with Hal and the other writers. I don't think I have ever met anyone who wants so much to make you a success. He offers free classes almost monthly. With this book he is makes it simple for you to know what is required to sell a script.
It is important to understand Hollywood.It changes daily. Although I have worked in Hollywood for so many years and written my own book Hairdresser to the Stars, a Hollywood Memoir, I have so much to learn. First of all I must have more to do to make my own scripts the best possible so they will be read. This little book points out what you need to know on your way to becoming a success. Read this while you are not only writing but also creating a base from which to sell your script. Its a new world out there and Hal lets us know how it works.
