CLASSROOM: Navigating Producers for Screenwriters
As a screenwriter, there are many ways you can break into the industry. Competitions, agents, and self-funding your own project are among the most common. That said, agents are simply inaccessible for many writers, competitions are repetitious and a gamble, and self-funding can be strenuous on your wallet.
There is another way! That way is through an effective producer. I use “effective” because there are many producers out there, but only a fraction are actually effective. I say this not to degrade, but to inform those who are in the search of a good producer. It’s not easy.
