Web Series Week: Delayed slightly, but still forthcoming!

Filed under: Web Series — petertypingfaster @ 8:33 am

Ah, the vagaries of production. I know I promised you interviews with the rest of the Pretty in Geek crew last week, and obviously they’re not up yet. Blame the delay on the vagaries of production. The schedule had to be rearranged, a couple of episodes were pushed, a couple moved up, all of which means that the prep work had to be redone on the fly. I’ve been assured that the interviews are still coming, they just might be a little late.

Look for them a little later this week.

But that’s okay, because we have other things in store for you! I’ve got a few writer’s lined up to talk about their first (paid) jobs. I’m going to try to get some people to talk about their networking strategies. I’m working on getting some producers I know to talk about negotiating your first option agreement, and all the dirty little tricks you need to be aware of.

If there’s anything specific you fine reader type folks would like to see addressed, just leave a comment, and I’ll do my best to find someone able to speak to your question.

Should be exciting!

  1. Hi Peter,

    I really liked your insights into the agencies in Toronto… and I would love to ask you a question or two regarding Meridian. They came and spoke at my school last year, and I was very impressed with Glenn’s views of agents vs managers and his sensibilities regarding spec scripts etc. I submitted my 30 rock to his agency in August, which of course was when the office was pretty much on hiatus…

    my question is, should I hold out waiting to hear from him? or would a polite follow up letter be deemed pushy? Or should I just start soliciting other agencies, and hope for the best?

    cheers, and thanks for writing such an informative blog!

    Mike

    • Hey Mike,

      Glad you’ve managed to dredge some insights out of my internet ramblings. It’s always nice to hear that someone’s getting some use out of this collection of random thoughts.

      As far as your question’s concerned, a polite follow up letter wouldn’t be out of line. Something along the lines of “I submitted a spec 30 Rock in August and was just wondering if you’d had a chance to take a look at it” kind of thing. You’re right that August is usually a bit of a hiatus month as far as development, pitching and lit agents are concerned (shows are usually in production in August, but everyone else is taking some time off), so a month’s delay in reading your submission is more or less to be expected.

      There’s no harm in querying other agencies either. Just don’t be surprised if they also take several months to get around to reading any material you do submit.

      Cheers,
      Peter
