    Hello fellow hubber's, I need your help.  I am a New York Film Student who is in desperate need of an agent that can help me get in a position to pitch my work to a network.  I have several TV treatments and scripts completed and ready to be pitched.  All of my ideas have either never been done or they've never been done the way I'm going to do them.  Sounds unbelievable but it's true I have done my research.  I am not being conceited but I am being confident when I tell you that I am a pretty good writer.  Check my hubs out if you want to get a feel for my writing style, and to see if you agree.  The problem is I need an agent, and after sending out query letters and calling agents offices I'm looking into the 3rd opinion, which seems like it may be one of the best ways to get my goal accomplished.  I need "The Hook Up."  Any advice would be great but a name, introduction or a point in the right direction would never be forgotten.  Since joining this website I have received nothing but love and not to sound corny or anything but, this place makes me seem like I'm part of a family.  So right now I'm asking please, can somebody help a brotha out? smile

      Check out 'Done Deal Pro' forums. Lots of good info and agent lists, especially if you are writing spec scripts.
      Good luck,

    Be careful about disclosing your ideas. You may see them on TV in a few months time - but not under your name.

    Maybe you and your other students should host an event and invite the agents and players to the event. If you make it a charity fund raiser, and have student prizes funded by established businesses, voted on like Cannes Film Festival - everybody wins.

    Youtube is one of the easiest and fastest way to get followers if you have really kick-ass materials. You can start writing shorts and capture them on film. I know a lot of people who got representations just because of their youtube page.

    You can also look for contests that involves script writing or filmmaking. Don't be afraid to walk inside the doors of Talent Agencies and ask. Although top agencies don't usually entertain those who hasn't received any recognitions in the industry but it wouldn't kill you to try. Guts my friend will take you to places! God bless you! :-)

      Haha... so, is there a "YouRead" or "YouBook" for writers?  I guess I could read my book to my camera.  *Little Big Planet cry face* Why does nobody wanna sign my series?  Po, po me!

    Any materials you send to agents, companies, etc., need to be accompanied with an NDA (non disclosure agreement). If they aren't willing to sign an NDA with you, then you don't want to work them. Period. If you're writing TV and film scripts, you need to be a member of the WGA and register your works there. WGA has a west coast and east coast office. Here is a link:
