“I was wondering how one can go about getting a script produced by The Asylum? Are you buying scripts at present, or do you wish to see a full treatment first? Can I send spec scripts? Thanks! Richard”
Unless the script comes with a check for $1 million dollars (my reading fee), we are not looking for outside material at the moment. Why? a) I’m lazy, and the stack of scripts on my desk from friends is very intimidating; b) We pretty much know our slate for the next year. In other words, we don’t produce outside material.
So…how can this change?
Good question. For our Faith Film label there is a possibility that I’ll be looking for outside submissions. Nothing is set in stone yet…but I’ll keep you posted. Also, if you have a published book or comic. OR, if you are Colin Hanks and your dad said he’ll do a cameo in the script you are submitting (tough town, get used to it). OR, work for us. If I see you around the office enough times I’ll put your script on the ‘Friends’ pile, and not read it for a year.
Now, in regards to the spec script…again, I refer back to the stack that is still looming over me. As I read them all personally (no readers for me!), it takes forever. So, I’ve sort of stopped reading specs. Yeah, it sucks.
