You can no longer consider me a screenwriter without representation.
I signed with a manager this week: Sean Butler of The Mikael Group.
He found DREAMSHIP on The Black List and liked it enough to want to work with me on it. The enthusiastic comments from his coverage person were also a nice little ego boost.
(Fortunately, his suggestions about changes to the script all are pretty minor and shouldn’t make a rewrite too difficult. We’ll be discussing those next week.)
Simply put, it feels really good to have all that hard work finally pay off.
But this is a short-term celebration. I’ve overcome the first hurdle of getting a career going (hence the “(part 1)”), and there’s still a lot more to go.
Next up – getting an agent.
I’d also like to offer an extremely hearty thanks to all of you who’ve been so generous with your time and feedback on this script. I really could not have gotten here without you, so enjoy a piece of pie of the flavor of your choice with my compliments.
