On Stage With RB - March 2016

Sarah Gabrielle Baron

Two great presenters (plus you, of course RB). I liked what Heather was saying about the importance of being face-to-face....there's a synergy there that is not accessed via Skype. You guys talked about being at the 'market' at film festivals. It's a lingo I'm not familiar with yet. I wonder, if you were to pick one event to buy a 'booth' at to sell your spec scripts, what would it be? What would you bring (scripts in paper format? scripts on memory sticks? business cards? a pamphlet with graphics to help sell loglines?). Also, does not having an agent turn execs away at these events, or is it a bonus....like, this is the place to find an agent....???

Heather Hale

Hey Sarah, Lovely to cyber connect with you! Sorry, I didn't see this 'til just now! A market is different than a festival (See: http://heatherhale.com/2015/08/how-to-work-the-film-tv-markets) and none of them work the way it sounds like you think they do - but don't worry ;-) that's why I wrote the book! ;-) So much misunderstanding out there! ;-) Why don't you shoot me an email and I'll see if I can help you more directly and specifically? ;-)
