For example: Mike Zoumas, a Senior VP for Miramax/Dimension Films recently called wanting help in finding a horror for a young filmmaker.
recommendation I set up this young filmmaker so that he
had access to our database of writers and scripts.On his own, the young filmmaker would never have gotten access (he had done one 15 minute short at school), but with Miramax and Mr. Zoumas taking this filmmaker under their wing, it was appropriate to allow access and do everything I could to help them find the right script.
Q: Does a listing with WSN
replace the need for getting/having an agent in the film business?A: No. Until a writer is making well into 6 figures from writing, the writer should seek out representation by a manager, agent and attorney, in addition to using our site.Writers should get support and exposure in every way that he/she can.I firmly believe this.At the same time, if a writer does have an agent, a manager and an attorney, the writer should continue to get exposure in every way possible (making sure not to step on the representatives' toes).
