How To Sell a Screenplay – Using The Internet to Market Your Script

Thanks to the advent of the Internet, new avenues in your attempts to sell a screenplay that were not previously available to screenwriters now exist, and, should you so choose, you could market your screenplay without ever even leaving your house – pretty impressive, right? This is a tool that is in your arsenal, and you shouldn’t be afraid to use it!

Knowing how to sell a script means being aware that there are a lot of websites that, for a fee, claim to have the ability to get your script seen by a producer – some are legitimate, some are not, and it is vitally important that you do independent research (outside of the site) before choosing to commit financial resources to one, lest you become the victim of some less than virtuous con man. That being said, there is one site that the author can safely recommend, and that is InkTip, which has a database of over 5,000 producers and is a very solid place to start for someone who is just learning to use the internet to aid in the process of selling a script.

As a general rule of thumb, the projects that seem to well at InkTip are low-budget (meaning limited locations and characters), high concept scripts. You can mix up to two genres, but anything over that becomes a little heady for most readers, and your chances of selling a screenplay aren’t as strong at that point. (By the way, that’s a good rule in general for selling a screenplay in any fashion – don’t bite off more than you can chew in terms of your plot. It’s just going to confuse the reader, who is going to assume that the audience will also be confused by the story, which means that they won’t want to make the movie in the first place.)

The place where most people seem to have trouble during this process is creating a compelling logline. Knowing how to sell a script, and this cannot be stressed enough,means not being vague. Often times, in a desire to not spoil the end of the movie, a writer will say something to the effect of «… nothing could prepare him/her/them for what happens next!» The part that happens next is, of course, the most exciting part, but you didn’t tell the reader what that was! The reader is not an audience member, but they are the first step in determining whether your movie gets in front of an audience or not, so don’t worry about spoiling it for them! If you have a great twist ending, let the reader know about it early on!

Anger In The Emotional GateKeeper

Anger is our emotional gatekeeper and if used effectively it will provide us with the ability to interact with the world fully aware of when our emotional gates should remain open and when to keep them closed.

Imagine the gatekeeper for a moment. She knows that her job is to protect. She also knows that if she is over protective those inside the gate will die from starvation or suffer from a lack of exposure to the outside world.

In the same way, anger protects our most vulnerable emotions. When we feel emotions like fear, disappointment, pain, grief, loss, rejection, humiliation, jealousy, being taken advantage of etc. anger forms a protective layer to keep others form further exploiting us. This is a wonderful tool in our emotional arsenal. Sadly just like the over zealous gatekeeper who keeps the gate close-anger can be destructive by fostering isolation from ourselves and others.

When our anger is appropriately, others will know through good communication that we have been negatively affected by their actions and in turn we can take steps to meet our own needs to ease our pain, disappointment, embarrassment etc. without becoming uselessly angry.

Let us see anger for what it is–the emotional gatekeeper that protects our other emotions however we need to also remember that there is a delicate balance between protections and suffocation.

Woodworking Table Saws Are One of the More Versatile Power Tools in Your Arsenal

Almost all line of work has some sort of main equipment. The painter has his canvass to pain his masterpiece. The field journalist has his trusty pen and pocket notebook to jot down hurried notes. The surgeon has his scalpel to smoothly perform an operation. Likewise, a woodworking shop would be useless without the woodworker’s centerpiece: the woodworking table saw.

Woodworking table saws have been around for more than two centuries. Some historians point to a British sailor named Samuel Miller as the inventor of the table saw in 1777. Some say that Walter Taylor built the table saw to make his primary occupation, cutting wood for ship builders, a lot easier back in 1762. Others credit the invention of the table saw to a 17th century Shaker woman named Tabitha Babbit. Who exactly made the first table saw is yet to be agreed upon. But one thing is for sure: work in almost all woodworking shop centers around the table saw.

The table saw is basically made up of a circular saw blade that is mounted on an arbor and is powered by a motor. The blade juts through the heavy and smooth surface. The raising and lowering of the blade is controlled by a handle. Modern saws have separate handles for adjusting the angles of the blade and have systems for dust collection. Yet, the basic simple structure of the table saw remains the same. The simple construction of a saw provides its main attribute: stability while cutting wood. Having a stable work surface is of prime importance. It helps a woodworker to make precise cuts and avoid mistakes.

But that is not what woodworkers value woodworking table saws for. Woodworking is such a tasking work. Various wood cuts are needed to be done throughout the day. And not only one type of cut will be needed. Throughout the day at a workshop, a woodworker makes infinite types of cuts with different angles. These saws make woodworkers’ job a lot easier because it can be used to make price cuts on almost any possible angle-be it crosscuts, rips, or bevels. Woodworking table saws are also used to square, miter, groove, shape, and join pieces.

No saw can parallel the versatility of woodworking table saws. So, it is not surprising that the woodworking saw has become the standard centerpiece of a workshop. If you are a woodworking enthusiast who loves to cut wood in your workshop during Saturdays and Sundays, or if you are a professional whose main job involves cutting wood, then you should have a table saw in your workshop.

There are many woodworking table saws out in the market. But do not just settle for the first relatively unknown saw that you happen to see on the hardware store. The sales person may talk a lot of flowery things about the saw, but do not go for it. You should see to it that your table saw would be of top quality and has a name. You’re your money count by investing on a high-quality saw made by renowned makers like Hitachi, Jet, Ridgid, Makita, Bosch, and Porter-Cable.

Beatles Tribute Bands – How They Are Keeping History Alive

The Beatles spirit, the most beloved rock band of all time, have given rise, to a myriad of tribute bands devoted to them internationally. Hailing from Liverpool, England in the 1960’s, these legendary icons made up of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, took the world by storm. With their unique sound and their mop-top hairdos, they were an act unlike any that anyone had ever seen before. Their impact on popular culture was unparalleled and they still have an indelible mark on the culture of today.

While the original band is no longer around, you can still get your Beatles fix by attending one of the many concerts performed by the multitude tribute bands they have spawned. There is even a music festival, called Abbey Road on the River, designed to feature these bands in all their duplicity of their idols. Some of these groups strive to replicate every last detail of the group, from their speech, to their clothes, to their hair, to their mannerisms while others remain in character throughout entire shows and are truly awesome to experience. As imitation is the sincerest form of strategy, some bands reenact the Beatles shtick to the last detail. Too factual here, need more poetry

Although these tribute bands differ in many ways, the share the common denominator of being appreciated and enjoyed by any baby boomer loving the classic rock of the Beatles. Ironically enough, these spin-off bands began forming even while the original band was still in existence. More than simply a cover group, these bands were, and still are, deeply devoted and dedicated to the music of their heroes.

Although the group disbanded in 1970, their legacy still lives on today. No matter what your age, everyone is familiar with the groundbreaking sound that these singers//musicians introduced. Fortunately, they have had such an impact that, even though they are no longer around, we can still hear their music today. In movies, television, and on the radio, we can still hear bits of classics like, «A Hard Day’s Night» and «I Want To Hold Your Hand». Their spirit and sounds are also kept alive through the awesome tribute bands paying homage to them, making the Beatles still one of the most popular acts in the world today.

Why PPC Should Be A Part Of Your Advertising Arsenal

PPC is probably one of the most cost-effective ways of targeted advertising on the internet. Forbes magazine has reported that PPC, or Pay Per Click, accounts for 2 billion dollars a year and is expected to increase to around 8 billion dollars by 2008.

Here is a brief look at how PPC works.

PPC search engines create listings and rate them based on bids placed by the advertiser. These bids are what the advertiser is willing to pay for each click received from that search engine. Advertisers must bid against each other to get a higher ranking for their keywords and so achieve a better position in the search engine. The highest bidder for a certain keyword will be ranked as number 1 in the PPC Search Engines, followed by the second and third highest bidder and so on, up to the last advertiser to have placed a bid. Your adverts will then appear prominently on the results pages dependent upon the dollar amount bid that you have agreed to pay per click.

So how do you make money by using PPC?

Affiliate programs only pay when a sale has been made or lead delivered by clicking through to your site. Your earnings will depend on the strength of your PPC ad which determines your CTR (click through rate), and the strength of your sales page.

PPC should be in your advertising arsenal because it is the ONLY way to practically guarantee a good position in the search engine listings thus giving you more of a chance to make a sale.

PPC can be very useful for your website. You will not only get sales from those who are searching the web to find the products and services that they want, but you will also be able to build your site’s authority as a valuable resource. The visitors who have found what they wanted from your site are more than likely to come back and see what you are offering more closely. This will give you a chance of repeat custom and even more income. It is a good idea to build a list of your customers details by incorporating a form on your website for them to complete. Lists built like this give you a strong market to cater too.

If you don’t have a website and product of your own to promote, there are plenty of affiliate sites to profit from. These affiliate sites have ready made products and websites for you to promote, and you receive a percentage of the profit from every sale you make. They will even give you sales copy and other tools and resources to help you in your marketing efforts. This is an excellent idea. You need have no storage facilities and will have no fulfillment costs. All you have to do is advertise the products and any sales will be dealt with by the affiliate owner.

So all in all PPC is a must have resource in your on-line business.

Explore More of London For Less

Benefits of a London audio downloadable walking tour

With an audio downloadable city guide you’re in charge. A good audio downloadable walking tour of London will provide listeners with interesting information about the characters and construction of London’s well and lesser known landmarks. Listeners to a good London city guide need not feel too much like a tourist with a guidebook in their hand. In the unlikely event that the heavens should open, you can stop your tour, head inside to one of London’s numerous attractions, coffee shops or eateries and re-emerge once the rain has stopped – and your appetite has been sated and your enthusiasm rekindled.

London’s Free Attractions

Many of London’s main museums and art galleries are admission free like the Tate Modern on London’s South Bank, the British Museum, the National Portrait and National Galleries. Some temporary exhibitions may charge an entrance fee and, in some cases, booking ahead via telephone or the internet may be necessary.

Plan your Sightseeing

Many of the ceremonial events most closely associated with London, like Mounting the Guard at Horse Guards and Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace only occur at certain times of day. To avoid disappointment check before you set out for the day and be mindful of the weather. In the event of torrential rain even the stoical Guards outside Buckingham Palace will retreat indoors. Certain key events in London’s calendar only take place once or twice a year. The Trooping of the Colour (sometimes called the Queen’s Birthday Parade), marking the British Monarch’s Official Birthday takes place each June, the Lord Mayor’s Parade takes place in November and so does the State Opening of Parliament. Tickets for the aforementioned Trooping the Colour sell out fast, book well in advance if you want to enjoy the pomp and pageantry in the flesh, while you’re in town.

Minimize your carbon footprint

When sightseeing it’s nice to be able to just soak up the atmosphere of a city. By walking you will be able to see more of London in its natural light, than you would be able to from the top of sightseeing bus, and reduce your carbon footprint into the bargain (and burn a calorie or two in the process). Enjoy the street entertainers in Covent Garden, people spot in Trafalgar Square, follow in the footsteps of the stars in Leicester Square, walk across to the South Bank via the Millennium Bridge or Tower Bridge and admire the City of London’s modern architecture.

African Football: A Chronology Of Tragedies On And Off The Field Of Play

Professional football as a competitive sport has had its unfair share of tragedies over the years. Apart from tragedies on the field of play, spectators have not been spared also.

Africa’s darkest day in soccer, perhaps remains the plane crash of April 27, 1993, when 18 members of the Zambian national team and 12 technical and crew members perished when their plane plunged into the sea off the coast of Gabon.

Tragedy cuts across continents, and that fact was confirmed during a League match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirate. A stampede at Ellis Park stadium in Johannesburg resulted in the deaths of 43 people, the worst disaster in South Africa’s sporting history.

Africa again witnessed another sporting tragedy when a local League match between Lupopo and TP Mazembe on the 30th of April 2001, led to the death of 14 people during a stampede following crowd trouble at a major league match at city of Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Nigerian sporting family witnessed one of the most horrific football tragedies on the 23rd of December 2008, when nine female amateur footballers and two coaches were burnt to death in an auto crash on their way from Jos, Plateau state.

The tears of sorrow had hardly dried up, when 15 members of an amateur team, F.C Jimeta from Adamawa state, Nigeria, died in another auto crash on the 26th of January 2009.

Twelve of the dead were players, while the remaining three were trainers.

Severe heat and overcrowding resulted in the death of 4 football fans at a Ghanaian League match between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oaks in Kumasi on Sunday 8th February, 2009.

On the 21st of February 2009, 13 Football supporters of Nigeria Premier League side Ocean Boys F.C of Yenegoa were killed by persons suspected to be cultist, on their way to attending a premier league match involving their team and Bayelsa United at the Ughelli Township Stadium in Delta State, Nigeria.

Tragedy struck at the Stade Felix Houphout-Boigny stadium in Abidjan, when Cote d’ivoire played host to Malawi, as 22 football fans were crushed to death when a fence collapsed as they tried to gain entry into the already jammed packed stadium, during a 2010 World Cup Qualifier.

Footballers are not also spared of these tragedies, which oftentimes occur either on or off the field of play.

Below is a list of African footballers who have died on the field of play.

  • Samuel Okwaraji(Nigeria)- died of heart attack on August 12, 1989
  • Amir Angwe(Nigeria)- died of heart attack on October 29, 1995

Arsenal’s Realistic Chances This Season (2010/2011)

I am happy about the current form of my gunners. But I hope they just take a bit of precaution at the moment. We have not really lost since the beginning of the new year and there are indications that we have just an opportunity to get our hands on the first major trophy since the last five years. But Arsene Wenger’s hope of running for the four possible titles is not just so real.

Considering that the boys are just coming of age and there are likely to be injuries and fatigue it is very good that he show concerns about this. Playing the boys three times a week would wear them off. Just recently Samir Nasri who happens to be the most promising this season is suffering from hamstring injuries. Even if he believes that this is the best gunners in so many years, caution has to be taken.

Arsenal remain in the Champions League where there is little hope of any success since they will be playing the best team in Europe, I will not try to be so optimistic about our chances like we had it during the 2007/08 season where we beat the best then, that is, AC Milan. We knew the consequence of winning that game. We lost our lead in the premiership and we were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United before that remarkable win.

We went ahead and lost in the quarter-final to Liverpool who know how to gamble with matches sacrificing the premiership trophy for the Champions league. Our realistic chances this season are the Carling Cup and the Premiership. As we trail behind Man. Utd by five (5) points, it will do us good if we just play Barcelona with the mind that we have lost (though we can give them a good fight), and hope that in the home and away games between Man. Utd and Chelsea they (Man.Utd) can drop six points and hopefully we win our return leg against them.

I still know that Alex Ferguson will not like to repeat the same mistake as last season. We better play with serious caution as there are likely to be more injuries and little recovery time. We still have 14 games as at the time of writing this report and our attack force is about the best in the premiership and we can believe that our boys will always be used to winning and the winning spirit will continue to the end of the season. I believe Arsene as a great and experience coach will have some of his advisers telling him the same or similar news!

Gunners 4 Life.
