Well I did it. I have put out my query letters for Wall of Destruction to some Hollywood agents. I did a few manually, and then used Talent Mailer dot com (http://www.talentmailer.com/). For $50 USD they offer a service to send your query letter to a list of agents they already have, approximately 400.
I checked around and it seemed no one was complaining about them. It took me approximately 4 hours of research this weekend to send out to 3 agents/agencies. That was time reading up on the agency. I tried to see if they were interested in representing writers of my scripts genre as well as trying to find names to include on the mailings. This was based on freely available internet information.
Yes I could have paid for some of the services but then when I thought about Talent Mailer and it’s cost, I figured I would be better off using them.
So we will see what happens in the coming weeks or months. For now, I guess i will start writing another story.
Here is a copy of the Query Letter I sent:
I would like to submit my feature length screenplay, WALL OF DESTRUCTION, for your consideration.
Genre: Epic Fantasy Adventure
Log Line: During the last ice age, a war between advanced civilizations, ravages the world. The survivors of a remote colony struggle to build a new life and escape the grasp of far away, war crazed Atlantis.
Set around 12,000 BCE, this story is told through the experiences of Lord Risor Tranor of Altai. He learns that not all of his enemies come across the battlefield. With the enemies last desperate gambit to forestall total defeat, the world is forever changed with floods that destroy cities, both friend and foe alike. Risor and the other survivors of Altai decide they have had enough of rule by Atlantis and decide to forge a new path. Atlantis is not ready to let them go.
I have published Wall of Destruction and completed the outlines of the final part and two sub-plot stories. These outlined stories all culminate in the final battle of book two.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please let me know if you would like to read the full screenplay. I will send to you immediately.
