Marcus Latrel Holmes


Hello everyone my name is Marcus Holmes. I am new to the film industry, I just finished writing my first feature film and TV Pilot. I am currently trying to shop it around so it can get picked up. Any advice from you pros in the game will be gladly appreciated Thank You!

Hey, Marcus Latrel Holmes! My name is Kay, I'm the Community Manager here at Stage32. Nice to meet you! Congrats on your feature and your pilot! That's excellent! Have you submitted either for contests? Getting feedback is definitely worth it so you get those notes before an executive looks at it.

Ooo, Memphis? I LOVE MEMPHIS! I get fried green tomatoes every time I'm in town :-D Would you be interested in participating in the "Paris, Je T'aime" challenge I posted in the Filmmakers Lounge? It's just a fun way to get to know people through their city:

Definitely reach out on the Screenwriting Lounge ( to find like-minded creatives, although it sounds like you're working on pitching your projects? You should consider joining the Writer's Room where we do weekly pitch practices and monthly Pitch tanks. If you email our Director of Script Services, Jason Mirch, he can give you a promo free month:

Enjoy exploring the lounges, and don't forget to comment and respond to others’ posts, too! It's the best way to really connect!

Hi Marcus, I would suggest Film Freeway for listing of festivals accepting Screenplays and Pilots. Focus on the ones that would put your script in front of industry insiders. You might want to pay a little extra to get coverage on your scripts just to see if they are as ready as you think they are.
