If you’ve written a screenplay and are not sure what the next step is, you might want to consider submitting your latest work to one or more of the many competitions. Though all of the competitions have some fee for entry (usually about $35), the benefits to an unknown screenwriter can be worth the small cost. Without shmoozing, networking, or encountering some Hollywood figure, the chance of an individual breaking into the film industry is nearly impossible. Writers are often the lowest on the totem pole, but these competitions provide some hope for unrewarded talent.
A literary acquisition contract is an agreement to acquire all or some rights in a literary property such as a novel or a play. Producers typically use it to obtain screenplays or movie rights to literary works. Purchasers, (e.g., producers) will want owners, (e.g., writers), to warrant that they own all the rights they are selling, free and clear of any other obligations (encumbrances). Sellers will disclose their copyright registration number so that Purchasers can check the copyright records and review the chain of title to ensure they obtain all the rights they desire. Each agreement needs to define the extent of the rights being sold.
