Success Stories: FEB'11 My First Option!

Ronika Merl

My First Option!

Hi,

so. I just got off the phone with an indie director here in Ireland, who found one of my scripts on Stage 32, and I'm signing an option agreement with him on Monday.

Not sure how to feel, not sure what to think.

I just know I feel good!

Karen "Kay" Ross

That's awesome, Ronika, congratulations! Let us know how it goes!

Maurice Vaughan

Congrats, Ronika. :)

Jack Binder

Congratulations! Go @Stage32 !!

Eric Roberts

Step carefully, I have two friends who got offered an option, but they heard through the grapevine the studio wanted to eliminate it as competition for a similar story they were developing. Just saying, be very careful.

Freyja Seren

Congratulations! Awesome news!

Ronika Merl

@Eric thank you! Yes, I agree. But thankfully the industry here in Ireland is so, so tiny that I personally know people who have personally worked with both the director and the producers so its safe. But yes, I agree with you that if this were not the case then I'd do the due diligence of research. :)
