...And if you subscribe, it'll also show you the added info to those, like budget, writing background you might need, and more specifically detailed stuff they're looking for in the script... I remember the first one on the list's budget is yet to be determined. And the second one's limit is 500k.
But this is something Inktip offers you also (for a price, $60) if you try it. Gives you leads like this every 2 weeks or something. SORRY NOT CHECKING MY SPELLING HERE.

7 to 13 leads PER WEEK, not every two weeks. I like InkTip. Their support folk are very prompt and helpful, too. But it does tend to be very low budget stuff and, similar to my experience with VPF, even if you get a script request they rarely follow up with a 'pass' notification. Just left me hanging, even after I followed up with them, enquiring, four or so weeks later. That's just rude.

Anyway, one way to consider this service is to balance InkTip's $60 subscription for as many as 17 weeks x 7 leads minimum = 119 generic leads that may or may not apply to your script(s), against $60 for six specific pitches on VPF.

I think it falls in InkTip's favor, but that's just my opinion.

Both of them are too expensive for me nowadays.
Gary Whorley says:
thanks catcon for your added helpful input there. good stuff.
catcon says:
Another thing I'll add is that if your subscription lapses, InkTip does this thing that's kind of nice:

They send the same newsletter, but they disable all but the first two leads. So, although I cancelled a few months ago due to my lack of "discretionary funds", today I got this very newsletter and the first two leads were available to me.

Thus, almost every week I still get to send in a response or two, logging in with my username/pw from my prior subscription. On the other hand, I'm still obtaining the same result (no options or sales, and few script requests).

Still, it's an incentive to keep me hooked so that if I ever have the money, I probably WILL resign with this group.

Note: I state the above as if it's a rule, but it might simply be due to the fact that I was a subscriber for almost three years. Maybe somebody who signs up for just a single 3-month subscription won't get this. I don't know for certain. On the other hand, I've noticed that most of these first-two leads have been ones I've seen before. That means it could also be a benefit InkTip gives to producers who're having problems generating responses.

So you see, it could very well be available to all - once you sign up for at least one subscription. Especially if you have multiple scripts/pilots available to pitch, I'd give InkTip a try. Out of those 7-13 leads (one newsletter had 18, but about 7 of them were from UCLA or somewhere whose students were looking for scripts for their theses), so there's bound to be something to pitch on if you have three or four scripts.

Oops, important use of hyphen:

"re-sign", not "resign", in paragraph four. har har
Trauntsie says:
OK, so I have a female feature comedy. Is there something out there that will transfer all my dialogue and action from English to Spanish? lol, 5 mil is the most iv'e seen on inktip.
Frank Castle says:
yes. that something is called, a translator.
Trauntsie says:
Right, but sometimes there's something called software, that will do things like that for a price. Which could be worth it for something like this

Would you happen to know the contact info for the script set in Israel?
catcon says:
The company name is Schick Productions, but just knowing that isn't how it works.

You have to be a paid-up member of the 'preferred newsletter' ($60USD/4 months) and then sign-in with a username, password and a fancy code to fill in a form that closely resembles that for submission to Amazon Studios.

1) Seeking Scripts Set in Israel (Lead 4575)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



We are looking for completed, feature-length scripts set in Israel. We are open to all genres at this time, as long as the material was written specifically with Israel in mind. Please do not submit if your script could be "easily adapted" to fit.

Budget is yet to be determined. WGA and non-WGA writers may submit.

NOTE: Access to writers' scripts on InkTip is normally restricted to producers who have already produced at least one feature film; however, we realize that every producer who got a first feature off the ground had to find that script somewhere. So, instead of providing access to scripts on InkTip, we offer leads to writers about up-and-coming producers who show real potential and who provided good references in an effort to help our writers connect with such producers. Note that this is one such lead.

To find out about this company AND submit to this lead:

1) Go to https://www.inktip.com/leads/

2) Copy/Paste this code: 2csqnuxcfp

@ Catcon
(I think) sometimes with some of these, you can do it without being a member. But almost all of them you do tho. (I think)
Gary Whorley says:
And I believe the Israel one is actually the one you can do it on here without being a member.
catcon says:
I believe you're talking about past members, who still have their pw and username to go in and do the submission. I haven't subscribed for 2-3 months, but that's how I was able to view this particular item.

The only way it could work is for you/I/somebody with a pw/username to let other people use our pw/username to submit; probably not a good idea!

What InkTip is actually doing is, they let those of us who they're trying to (nicely) 'suck back in' get access to the first two items on each new newsletter.

Now, what are these leads? You may notice that they had been listed in prior newsletters, but probably due to the fact they got low/no response got bumped up to the first two listings on a subsequent newsletter.

l like InkTip, and the folks who run it, and there's nothing wrong with what they're doing here.

I've found the occasional gem that I can still submit to, but some of them are pretty specialized (as this one is).
Gary Whorley says:
Maybe that's it too. All I know is someone asked me for this lead also in a private message. And he said he got it to work, though I'm not sure if he was a past member or not really.

I got the same newsletter, but the two (freebie*) leads were different:

1. Seeking Contained Character-Driven Drama or Thriller Scripts (Lead 4598)
2. Seeking Family-Friendly Young Female-Driven Comedy Scripts with Country Music Elements (Lead 4539)

Both were too low budget or too impossibly specific to interest me, though.
