“Where to Send Your Script”
When you believe you are ready to submit your screenplay for representation or to a production company, put yourself in the executives’ shoes. Make sure that your screenplay is really ready for submission and that you are not sending it off because you think it’s good enough as is, and someone else will fix it. Do not be lazy! Your script is your calling card. If your script has typos, grammatical errors, copy machine marks, missing pages, sloppy mistakes, formatting errors, and so on, be warned — your script will be discarded and there is a very good chance that the company will never want to read anything else that you send them.
