the Right Script into the Right Hands"
JERROL LE BARON: Growing up in the construction business inevitably
led to him becoming a general contractor, and somehow that led
to his owning a successful fine jewelry business. However, a constant
life long fascination with the motion picture business motivated
him to write a few screen plays.
eventually discovered what all script writers come to know: Writing
a script is one thing, getting it read is another. It was frustrating
trying to find a producer who might want to read anyone's script
~ especially an unknown writer's script.
An exciting, well written, unread script is equal
to a dull, poorly written, unread script in that it too ~ gets
What would help?
Jerrol decided to develop a site on the Internet to make it easier
writers and producers to get together. He created a method that
saw to it that screenwriters would get their scripts read by entertainment
industry professionals. He founded INKTIP.COM, and is now President
of this very successful company. Literally thousands of good connections
have been established.
The company also advises script writers an how to fine tune their
craft and make certain the finished product is what a producers
Jerrol also tells anyone interested in writing scripts, "The
more one knows about the business of screen writing, the better
off you'll be. Knowing all about how to pitch, write log-lines
and synopsis‘, and defining who your market is for a particular
screenplay are all very important in becoming a successful screenwriter.
Don't forget that in order for your screenplay to become a film,
that screenplay needs to get read by a lot of people. Marketing
is key to getting hired as a writer and selling screenplays“.
Jerrol, knows how to market. He's the best 'Conduit' in the business.
He matches up script writers with producers and directors. “We
have 2500 registered producers, representatives and directors
who have access to the scripts on InkTip.com. They range from
studio level execs to independent producers. This is a paradise
for writers seeking to option their scripts, or unsigned writers
to get agents or managers. We work everyday to get the professionals
to the site reading our writers’ works!
"We've had 300 scripts optioned, and 100 of our writers were
hired to write scripts, and many writers have gained representation.
From the scripts and writers found through our site, we have had
30 films produced, including a six-figure deal with Sony, and
a variety of films for Lifetime, Hallmark, and the ABC Family.
"It is amazing how engrossing writing can be. As soon as
you start, it's sometimes very hard to stop. The more you write,
the easier it is, and the more skilled one becomes. Just as actors
love being on the stage, writers come to love writing!" ~
