2 Places New Writers Can Submit Their Finished Screenplays – Jeremy Foley

Film Courage: How many feature scripts have you written?

Jeremy Foley, Filmmaker/Actor/Screenwriter: Oh gosh, let me think… feature scripts we have written…one…two ( I have to count)…probably seven or eight feature scripts and then probably two or three television or teleplay scripts, shorter pilots or our podcast script. Probably about a dozen scripts in total and then within those dozen completed scripts you know certainly we have a giant board with all of our ideas and then we have a lot of treatments for things that we’ve written and we’ve written a lot of you know we’ve written a lot of pitch decks for a lot of our projects and we’ve written, a lot of series bibles or series pitches for a lot of our television projects. A lot of writing but yeah I think I would say about a dozen probably feature screenplays.

Film Courage: When you first started writing these features, who would you send them for reading?

Jeremy: When we first started writing features there were two major things we would do I guess or I think would recommend for people. Certainly your friends if you have friends in the industry, fantastic, that’s great. Send them to those friends and even if you don’t have friends in the industry still anybody who’s willing to read it I would say send it to them because it can take people a while to read a screenplay and get back to you but also I think what was really helpful for us in the early days is you can find there’s many of them online. There are screenwriting services or screenwriting consultancy agencies and screenwriting contests things like that but I think what was really helpful for us…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
