Review on PROJECT FILMDeserve Before You Desire
Learn to draft a 'production & reader friendly' screenplay which ensures a smooth read and is ready to go into production stage.
Complete at least a couple of drafts of a screenplay and have at least 3-4 screenplays in different categories in your kitty before you start knocking on producer's doors.
Practice narration often so you are prepared to pitch. Narrate to your friends, family and confidants and re-work on their suggestions.
Be A Professional
Become a member of FWA as soon as you have something to get registered.
Whatever you write, synopsis/ treatment/story/screenplay or even a step-outline, including the various rewrites and drafts; get all of them registered.
ALWAYS register your work BEFORE sharing it. Unless its registered with them, FWA will not be able to intervene in case of a dispute.
Besides page numbers, insert footer at the bottom of every page that states your copyright, registration details, email ID and contact number.
Better mail soft-copies (preferably PDFs) of your synopsis/ treatment/story/screenplay to Producers/Production houses unless they insist on a hard copy.
There's also an option of mailing your work to yourself by registered post. The date of the registry and the receipt is a proof of your copyright on that particular date.
Learn to negotiate with producers and demand for your price and rights.
Narrate it Right
Mail soft-copies (preferably PDFs) to Producer/Production houses before or right after you've narrated to them in person. Its an evidence of the exchange and is useful in case of a dispute. It will also help you keep a record.
If submitting a hard copy is necessary, give Producer/Production houses a xerox of your registered synopsis/ treatment/story/screenplay to evaluate.
Insist on a Non-Discloser Agreement (NDA) with whosoever you are narrating and/or presenting your synopsis/ treatment/story/screenplay. This will be your guarantee against any copyright violations later.
