Transcript Agent Barbara Bitela and Screenwriter Phillip Barron January 30, 2011


Scriptchat TOPIC: Screenwriting agents with guests screenwriter Phillip Barron @phillbarron on EURO and screenwriting agent Barbara Bitela @nybabz on USA.

8:06 pm            Bang2write:            @phillbarron so why do you think new writers are so sure they NEED an agent above all else? @DreamsGrafter #scriptchat

8:07 pm            kanundra:            @phillbarron If we don't need agents what can help us? #scriptchat
8:07 pm            eph_bee:            @phillbarron do you have an agent now? How does the work they get you differ from your own stuff? Is there a difference? #scriptchat
8:07 pm            phillbarron:            Agents want to make money from you, so they're naturally interested in getting you paid work, the more money the better for all. #scriptchat
8:07 pm            DreamsGrafter:            Great Q. RT @Bang2write: @phillbarron so why do you think new writers are so sure they NEED an agent above all else? #scriptchat
8:08 pm            phillbarron:            But there are a lot of more experienced writers competing for the same small pool of big money - sometimes better to aim lower #scriptchat

8:09 pm            phillbarron:            @eph_bee No, no agent yet. I still don't feel I need one and am happy generating my own work ... for now. #scriptchat
8:09 pm            DreamsGrafter:            RT @phillbarron: But there are a lot of more experienced writers competing for the same small pool of big money - sometimes better to aim lower #scriptchat
8:09 pm            phillbarron:            New writers feel an agent gives you validity - which they do; but not as much validity as someone producing your work #scriptchat
8:10 pm            Bang2write:            @kanundra what can help us is OURSELVES - networking, helping others brings good karma! Sounds cheesy but true #scriptchat

8:10 pm            yeah_write:            @phillbarron So get small credits to get bigger work? #scriptchat
8:11 pm            wcdixon:            In my experience agents don't *get* you work - they can get you meetings or connect you to projects but YOU get hired/the work. #scriptchat
8:11 pm            alli_and_that:            @phillbarron So produced work can get your further than an agent? Does this include self-produced/low-budget work? #scriptchat
8:11 pm            janetvaneeden:            RT @DreamsGrafter: Phill's CV: http://bit.ly/hUOUbM RT @phillbarron: No, no agent yet ... am happy generating my own work ... for now. #scriptchat
8:11 pm            phillbarron:            There's a lot of chaff in the industry, particularly at the bottom; but once you find the few kernels, you all help each other #scriptchat
8:11 pm            Robert296hewitt:            @phillbarron Hey Phill. So if a writer doesnt have an agent how is the best way for them to get work out there? #scriptchat
8:11 pm            thewritertype:            RT @wcdixon: In my experience agents don't *get* you work - they can get you meetings or connect you to projects but YOU get hired/the work. #scriptchat
8:11 pm            MetronomePics:            @yeah_write that sort of makes sense, but i dont think you should do just one or the other, why not go for both? #scriptchat
8:12 pm            Bang2write:            @phillbarron Think lots of new writers target ppl "above" themselves, I know I did - but they want the ppl they started with #scriptchat
8:12 pm            janetvaneeden:            RT @alli_and_that: @phillbarron So produced work can get your further than an agent? Does this include self-produced/low-budget work? #scriptchat

8:12 pm            DreamsGrafter:            @nisajaie Euro's happening now. :) #scriptchat We're bombarding @phillbarron w/ q's. He's being so cool w/ his answers. #scriptchat

8:13 pm            phillbarron:            Self-produced work can open a lot of doors - if good. If not, there's nowhere to hide. You can't blame the director if he's you! #scriptchat
8:13 pm            Bang2write:            By hook or by crook... From small acorns huge oak trees grow... more cheese-a-rama, which is why it's prob true! : ) #scriptchat

8:16 pm            DreamsGrafter:            @phillbarron So perhaps a writer has more chance if they're a bit of a multi-tasker? i.e. directing or producing. #scriptchat

8:17 pm            KageyNYC:            Starting to think, even if a writer doesn't want to direct their own work, it behooves them to learn to produce it. Get it made. #scriptchat

8:20 pm            phillbarron:            The bottom line is - quality wins through ... if you put it in front of the right people. Networking/web presence is important #scriptchat
8:20 pm            kanundra:            @phillbarron @janeytvaneeden I sometimes take on too much. I've learned to say 'no' #scriptchat
8:20 pm            wcdixon:            Again, in my experience, agents will come find you if you generate enough heat from success of your indie/self-produced work. #scriptchat

8:22 pm            dodgyjammer:            @phillbarron my understanding is, the agent saves you the chasing/finding right people part, and you just have to pitch. #scriptchat
8:22 pm            Scripts_n_Scars:            Figured I'd drop in on EURO #scriptchat with @phillbarron as the guest. Interesting topic and tweets right now.
8:22 pm            janetvaneeden:            @phillbarron There is the danger of that. Master of none...RT Multi-tasking is good; but some multi-taskers fail at most things #scriptchat
