DIY Marketing for Screenwriters: Three Screenwriting Websites That Appeal to Writers at Every Level

"As a WGA member, I knew first-hand how hard it is to get past the studio sentinels, and knew all about the grueling gauntlet we run to get eyeballs onto our pages. But recently, at a guild-sponsored seminar featuring the head honchos of all three sites, I listened as InkTip’s Jerrol LeBaron, Virtual Pitch Fest’s David Kohner Zuckerman and The Black List’s Franklin Leonard made this unanimous assertion: Writers no longer needed an agent, or manager, or your uncle’s dentist’s cousin who works at Paramount to get their material considered, read—even sold. Sorry, I wasn’t buying it."

Feature Produced Thru VPF

While dozens of writers have received representation and script deals through VPF, our breakout success was the release of feature film "Raspberry Magic," a young girl's coming-of-age story that won positive reviews and many awards on the festival circuit. The film's writer/director Leena Pendharkar pitched the script for "Raspberry Magic" thru VPF to Bamboo Management's Heidi Ifft. Ifft said "yes" to the pitch and liked the script so much she sent it to her actress-client Meera Simham ("House"). "Meera loved the script, and so did her actor-husband, Ravi Kapur ("Crossing Jordan")," says Ifft. "The pair was quickly attached to the project and six months later, the financing came through."

VPF Success: 80+ Script Deals

VPF is proud to have been the conduit for many script deals and writers landing reps. "My childhood dream has always been to find success as a screenwriter, and I feel I've made a big step forward last weekend," says VPFer Kingston Medland. "On only my twelfth pitch on your site, and only my second script request from all those, I had a manager contact me by email and then by telephone. On Sunday I signed with him! I've never been to film school and live in England, so your site made it possible for me to reach this manager directly. Without that, I would still be knocking on doors, and probably not getting many script requests. Thanks again for your work, and the possibilities the site opens up for writers like myself."
