If you’re serious about getting others interested in buying and producing your screenplay, then before sitting down to write one there are some questions you might want to first consider.
- Does the premise and story stand out from the thousands upon thousands of others that are submitted to industry professionals in the hopes of being bought for production?
- Is it different, unique or fresh enough to make it hold up to comparison and/or surpass those similar properties that have already been produced?
- Will it convince financiers to invest the tens of millions of dollars that it would take to get it up on screen?
- Are the major characters so interesting and so intriguing that key stars would “kill for the roles?”
- Does the story/plot show such promise that producers, directors, and the other creative talent would be willing to spend a year, two years or more of their lives bringing the story to the screen?
- Is it entertaining enough to draw millions upon millions to theaters worldwide?
- And would those who saw the film tell their friends that it’s a “must see?”
