VENDERE UNA SCENEGGIATURA A HOLLYWOOD - I PRODUTTORI CHE LEGGONO

Tempi duri per chi ha scritto un film e vorrebbe essere remunerato per il suo lavoro.
In Italia la categoria del produttore non è mai esistita. Ma fuori dal nostro paese?
Si può  presentare una sceneggiatura e essere giudicati in base ai meriti? Ci sono submissions che permettono – senza far parte di una cricca – di essere letti? Lo script di un lungometraggio può essere pagato 80 mila dollari?
Ecco in anteprima planetaria 98 modi per far leggere il tuo script da un produttore americano o inglese. 
Cioè 98 unsolicitied queries, svelate senza segreti.  
Se sei un bravo sceneggiatore, se non hai paura della concorrenza, se non hai nel cassetto le solite storie minimaliste e piagnone, allora continua a leggere questo vademecum. E magari il prossimo inverno, mentre sorseggi una tequila ad Acapulco e palpi Lindsay Anderson, ti ricorderai dei miei consigli. Forse.

SALVAGUARDARE IL PROPRIO LAVORO
Prima di far viaggiare le tue idee per il globo, proteggile e fornisci al tuo copione uno status professionale. I produttori americani incoraggiano a registrare le opere. La WGA, il potentissimo sindacato degli sceneggiatori statunitensi, suddiviso a sua volta nelle sezioni East e West, offre un servizio di registrazione con numero identificativo. Puoi farlo da questo link https://www.wgaeast.org/script_registration e pagare con carta di credito. E così i primi 25 dollari se ne vanno. Non si tratta solo di salvaguardia dei diritti. Costituisce indice di serietà e una garanzia per chi leggerà lo script.  Molte case di produzione non prendono in considerazione le sceneggiature che non sono registrate alla Writers Guild of America e in qualche modo ti costringono a usufruire del servizio a pagamento.

L’ESERCIZIO DELL’OPZIONE
La possibilità di successo di un prodotto cinematografico ha un grado di incertezza elevatissimo. L’investimento di tipo sequenziale, quello in cui il progetto è suddiviso in diversi stadi, limita le perdite. In una prima fase un’impresa può decidere di investire esercitando una opzione su una sceneggiatura. Pratica che negli USA e in GB è molto diffusa. L’opzione in genere ha durata di 2 anni (che si può estendere, anche con contratti di 6 mesi in 6 mesi) e si basa sulla necessità di reperire informazioni sul valore commerciale del film, risorse artistiche e tecniche e chiaramente finanziamenti per completare il progetto. L’accordo può prevedere l’acquisto effettivo dei diritti (purchase agreement), la loro cessione immediata (outright grant) o una cessione preliminare (initial grant), per poi saldare il prezzo pieno di acquisto se la produzione metterà in cantiere il film.
Attenzione, però, perché la durata dell’esclusiva di una opzione può diminuire il valore di mercato della sceneggiatura e, quando si recupera la proprietà, saranno già circolate voci sulla sua mancata commerciabilità e si rischia così di “bruciare” il testo.  

IL PRIMO FILTRO: LE AGENZIE CREATIVE
Le Major, quelle cinque società che producono un quarto dei film circolanti per gli States,  non perderanno tempo a leggere materiale non richiesto. Men che mai quello di un esordiente. Utilizzeranno come filtro decine e decine di agenzie creative, executive producer, produttori associati e magari anche registi e attori di scuderia per vagliare i loro progetti candidati. Una cosa è certa: senza un’agenzia alle spalle che ti rappresenta, non verrai preso in grande conto, avrai meno opportunità e, ovviamente, non sarai letto né dagli studios né da compagnie affermate e di livello medio-alto. Troverai il classico fuoco di sbarramento (Please do not send unsolicited material). Gli agenti garantiscono la qualità di una sceneggiatura rappresentata e riescono a far leggere uno script ai produttori influenti. Per questo ci occuperemo delle agenzie americane e inglesi in un post successivo. E’ una via da seguire, che non entra in contrasto con i successivi suggerimenti. Per ora farai a meno di avere una rappresentanza e testerai l’opera in base alle prime risposte di produttori indipendenti.
  
IL SECONDO FILTRO: IL SINDACATO DEGLI SCENEGGIATORI
La WGA, l’associazione degli sceneggiatori statunitensi che regola il mercato, accetta come socio chi vende una sceneggiatura e può considerarsi un professionista a tutti gli effetti. La WGA stipula contratti con le maggior parte delle società di produzione per regolare i compensi minimi degli autori. Chi non è socio WGA avrà vita dura, perché potrà lavorare solamente con piccole società che non sottoscrivono l’accordo con le Majors. Una bella fregatura! Non ti prendono nel sindacato se prima non dimostri di avere esordito, e senza l’iscrizione al sindacato diventa più complicato il tuo esordio. Allora come fai a ottenere il primo contratto? Da qualche parte si deve cominciare e per fortuna le produzioni indipendenti USA, gli executive producer e le piattaforme digitali come Hula, Netflix e Amazon rappresentano una galassia interessante, vitale e piena di iniziative. Si restringe ulteriormente la fetta di produzioni a cui indirizzare un copione, ma non disperare.

NOTIZIA CATTIVA E NOTIZIA BUONA
La notizia cattiva è che c’è in giro un esercito di scrittori e un eccesso di offerta rispetto alla domanda. Da Londra a Los Angeles, decine di migliaia di aspiranti sceneggiatori sommergono le scrivanie dei produttori con le loro proposte.
La notizia buona è che in USA come in GB stanno cercando mettere alle spalle la crisi economica e non mancano occasioni e trampolini di lancio. Negli Stati Uniti il cinema è la seconda industria del paese, dopo quella aeronautica, e fa circolare molti soldi.   
Lo spec script è la sceneggiatura “speculare” che non si scrive su commissione, ma si propone a qualcuno senza averne ricevuto l’incarico. Nella maggior parte dei casi, perciò, uno spec non trova acquirenti ed è semplicemente un biglietto da visita per un’agenzia, una sorta di “writing sample”, della serie ti faccio vedere io di cosa sono capace. Sono rari i casi in cui lo spec sia venduto a peso d’oro, come per la spogliarellista Diablo Cody con Juno (2007), oppure i magnifici testi di Thelma & Louise (1991), Will Hunting (1997) e American Beauty (1999). Appare più verosimile che uno spec acquistato sia comprato, anche per toglierlo dal mercato, e poi non venga trasformato in un film. Oppure, nella migliore delle ipotesi, il lavoro dell’esordiente contenga un’idea orginale e di grande effetto, che ha conquistato il produttore, ma poi sarà riscritto da qualche fidato sceneggiatore dello studio. Ad esempio la bibbia e il pilota di Alcatraz, serie proposta dagli sconosciuti Steven Lilien e Bryan Wynbrandt, viene riscritta dalla produttrice Sarnoff e da quel geniaccio di Abrams.
Veniamo alla parte positiva. Il prezzo di acquisto della sceneggiatura e dei diritti va dal 5 al 7,5 % del budget totale fissato per la produzione di un film. La sceneggiatura di un lungometraggio deve essere pagata ai soci WGA un minimo di 80.000 $ da società e network che hanno firmato l’accordo nazionale col sindacato. Un socio WGA, a sua volta, si impegna a non accettare lavori che scendano sotto quel minimo sindacale. Voi che non siete iscritti al sindacato no, però. Il pagamento deve essere contestuale alla consegna di ogni step della sceneggiatura. Il contratto tipo prevede infatti: 1) la fase del trattamento; 2) la prima stesura dello script; 3) la revisione finale.
Se verrà realizzato un sequel del proprio lavoro cinematografico, all’autore dovrà essere versato il 25% del compenso fissato per la sceneggiatura del secondo film.

SI COMINCIA!...  SCRIVERE UNA STORIA E PROPORLA AGLI INTERESSATI
Parti da una storia forte, con una premessa dirompente. Se dopo le prime 15 pagine ancora non è successo niente di rilevante e non catapulti il tuo pubblico in un altro mondo, conviene che risparmi i tuoi soldi e non tenti avventure. L’Italia, in fondo, è un bel paese.
Altrimenti, condensa il succo della storia in una log out-line. Due, tre frasi che spingerebbero qualsiasi persona a leggere il tuo copione. Un gancio potente. Una sintesi che con caratteri roboanti e assoluti riassuma idea, genere, trama, personaggi e originalità del film.
Rispettate sempre le procedure per l’invio. Scrivi la log-line nel corpo nel testo e non allegare file non richiesti, altrimenti sarai cestinato. Molte case di produzione richiedono solamente la log-line in pochi caratteri. In un anno ne ricevono 20.000 e tra queste 2.000 rispondono ai loro criteri.    

Wow! Hai superato le forche caudine della log-line. Devi presentare una sinossi del film che sta in una pagina. Sforzati di raccontare cosa avviene, mantenendo intatte sorprese e suspense. Non esaltarti per il valore letterario. Non descrivere, ma narra. I fatti esteriori, i colpi di scena, il percorso del protagonista e la sua trasformazione, i capovolgimenti della storia, il crescendo drammatico fino alla sua risoluzione.     

Il terzo passo chiave è avere una sceneggiatura. Inizialmente le produzioni possono chiederti di inviare le prime dieci pagine. Se queste piacciono, vorranno valutare il malloppo. Sarà necessario avere un copione con un buon ritmo e una buona struttura, personaggi profondi e scene indimenticabili. Il tutto tradotto in inglese incisivo e dialoghi calzanti. Se non sapete sbrigare da soli questi due aspetti cruciali (traduzione dall'italiano all'inglese e analisi/editing/revisione testo), contattatemi in privato. Se state pensando che questa black list è un cavallo di Troia per piazzare i miei servizi a prezzi modici, avete visto giusto.

15. Cavalier Films Rider
Cavalier Films is seeking smart, original screenplays, which can be produced for under $1M. CF is not exclusive to any genre but dramas with a comedic element are well received. Our main focus is making quality, commercially viable films with at least one known actor or actress on a limited budget. In order to accomplish this feat submitted scripts should be character-driven with roles that will attract recognizable talent. Stories should have a clear and meaningful arc and leave the audience somehow better for watching the film. Unfortunately CF does not have the time or resources to develop stories thus we can only accept submissions of completed screenplays.
Material Submission Procedures and Policy: Although it is often the policy of the film production industry to only accept materials for consideration from known agencies, CF holds the belief that fresh and interesting materials are likely to exist outside of such relationships and that writers without representation deserve an opportunity to have their creations considered. As such CF will welcome direct submissions but only upon receipt of a properly executed and submitted Script Submission Statement of Understanding and Release (SSUR) form. The release form must be submitted to Cavalier Films in an envelope separate from materials submitted for evaluation.

Noci Pictures Entertainment looking for screenplays that are EITHER written and take place in Europe, can take place in Europe, and/or you hold dual EU/US passports and still can have a residency in Europe. We are a film finance company that structures international co-productions so our mandates are very specific in terms of what we are looking for and the kind of writers we need. Also, your level of scripts must have either one following: placed high in a noted script writing competition, at one time or another you were represented by a major L.A. agency or European agency, you have a background as a journalist or other writer, you are placing high on the Blacklist of other place, you wrote a screenplay based on an existing underground graphic novel or comic book that you either created, or you may even had a big director or writer attached to your scripts, or you have some cool shorts that you directed.
Please also make sure your scripts have a copyright on them and/or WGA. Alternatively, if you don't fit this exactly but had someone in the industry cover you, that would work too. Please only send us a 25 word logline of the script and a quick bio on you. Do not send us the script unless we request it and do not send us emails with only ideas for a unwritten script or with for genres we are not looking for. Email to filmhedge@aol.com

Va compilato un form con max 500 caratteri oppure girata una email come è scritto sotto.
The company is co-founded by Sara Risher (producer of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, former production head of New Line Cinema), and director/producer Dror Soref.
We plan on producing a number of feature films, TV shows, and web content.
We are now officially accepting screenplay submissions. If you have a story to tell, and you think you have what it takes to be a Hollywood screenwriter, send your screenplays to submissions@novafilmhouse.com
We guarantee that every submission will be read! If we decide it has potential, we will contact you! We are a brand new company. You will not any find any information on us online. Our website is set to launch within the next few weeks.
Feature length screenplays are preferred over shorts or treatments.
Every submission will be read. Sending the same work in multiple times will not change our verdict. If you do not hear from us within a few weeks, do not resubmit your work until you have done significant revisions. If you do resubmit your work, make sure you indicate the draft version on your screenplay.
Così scrive il lettore della produzione:  I read a lot of scripts. I will probably read some of your submissions. Here are my tips: 90 pages is a good length for a screenplay. If it's longer than 90, make damn sure that every extra page is crucial! Most 120 page screenplays have 30 pages of nothing happening! Although we strongly recommend that our interns read the entire screenplay before judging it, they have absolutely no incentive to do so. If they are distracted by your page-long run-on-sentences and spelling errors, THEY WILL NOT READ FURTHER THAN PAGE 10! If he/she does not like you, they will heartlessly decimate your best shot at making it into Hollywood!
