So far, the first two months of the year have started out great. A lot to do and interesting projects are coming my way. I have never had so many scripts and packages coming in, some are quite good. One note though; All of you who send out packages, please do your homework first and before reaching out to investors have someone from the outside take a look.
Here is a quick reminder of what you need in order to safely secure interest in your material. I find it increasingly difficult to find well worked material.
- Attached Talent (Letter of Intent is a good start)
- Distribution (Also, here is a letter of intent a good start)
- Secure marketable talent like a great D.O.P for example.
- At least 25% in escrow in order to bring some kind of structure to the project.
Now when that is out of the way, let's continue.
I was in Mexico yesterday (Monday) to meet people that are seasoned in the industry and have a look at one of the worlds largest salt and fresh water tank studios. Not only was it a incredible sight but the potential with this studio is endless. It's a great property and it should be used much more than it is today. You can read more about the visit to the studio in this blog post.
In time, I will be able to talk more about this but for now, it's good night.
