Hi, I've been catching up on some of the UK scriptwriters podcasts - I'm sure most here listen to them regularly. A couple of observations/conclusions that I've made from their discussions which are actually quite entertaining and full of useful advice. The chances of selling a spec script in the UK are ultra slim. The chances of an unknown selling a spec script of the fantasy, western, science fiction, historical, big budget adventure or blockbuster are zero. That's nada, ziltch, zip, nil and squat. That's probably a slight exaggeration - Moon for example was sci-fi but it was made for 5mil and as it was co-written by Duncan Jones had a bit of a "leg-up" to start with. Basically spec scripts are writing examples and that's about it. The point was made that if everyone stopped writing new scripts today - production people wouldn't care because there are 3-5 years of "good" stuff just waiting for someone to do something with. The place is awash with good to excellent scripts. The one possible exception to this are those scripts written for the ultra low budget. There might be mileage in making an "ultra-low" sale there. But that is the sort of area where writer/directors and writer/producers seem to excel - equipment is relatively cheap to borrow now so if it's ultra low budget- just make it the whole thing yourself - no selling or buying needed. I'm curious if this chimes with other peoples experiences or expectations?
