SimplyScripts Radio: The Profanity Edition – Interview with Babz Bitela - posted by Don

SimplyScripts Radio – The Profanity Edition: Babz Bitela, Literary Agent with Silver Bitela Agency.

Rated G for conspicuous lack of profanity language

Host Mike Shelton, along with panelists Pia, Michael Cornetto, Phil Clarke and Don talk to Literary Agent, Babz Bitela.

She has three novels in print, Severe Tire Damage: Story of a Rock Singer, Full Moon Morning: A Shanghai Survivor’s Story, and The Art of Regifting which is touted as the stocking stuffer for ‘gifters’ and ‘regifters’ alike.

Show Notes (makes more better sense if you’ve listened to the podcast)

  • Toto’s agent – the band, not the dog
  • Zombie Strippers
  • Save the Cat
  • A Logline – Verbs plus Nouns plus Irony
  • The value of the Table Read
  • The pitch: One piece of paper with a logline, genre, page count, have you gotten coverage, beginning, middle and end of the movie. Having Coverage is important.
  • *note: WGA is NOT the reason we don’t discuss deal points, they are NOT money cops. We don’t do it as it’s TACKY…

Introducing ScriptCrawler Coverage - posted by Don

ScriptCrawler CoverageScriptCrawler Coverage is an affordable alternative to most coverage services. ScriptCrawler is not run by a large corporate entity: instead, the gap between you and your analyst is narrowed, providing a more personal development process.

ScriptCrawler’s readers work for “Big Three” agencies like ICM and CAA, as well as major studios and production companies. They know what it takes to get a script in shape for Hollywood, and are aware of current trends and sales. Best of all, while other services take up to four weeks to return your coverage, ScriptCrawler turns it around in 7 days or less, with the option of a 48-hour Rush turnaround. Agents and executives expect that their coverage be accurate, insightful and delivered on time: why shouldn’t you expect the same?

As a special offer for SimplyScripts visitors, you can get 5% off all purchases using the coupon code simplyscripts38902. There is no use limit on the coupon code, so you can use it over and over again. – Don
