Welcome to "Produce It: A Guide to Finding Producers or Producing Your Indie Film" by Gini Graham Scott. If you've ever dreamed of writing a script and seeing it brought to life on the big screen, this book is for you. I have been in the industry for many years and have seen firsthand the challenges and obstacles that aspiring writers face when trying to break into the business. This book is a comprehensive guide that will take you through every step of the process, from developing your concept and writing your script, to creating materials to sell your script, and ultimately, selling it to producers.


In this book, you'll learn how to create compelling characters, write a compelling story and structure a script, develop a pitch and write a logline, create a treatment and a script outline, how to format a script, and how to create a pitch deck to sell your script. But that's not all. You'll also learn the ins and outs of the industry and the different routes to getting your script produced, such as pitching to producers, agents, and managers, and the importance of networking and building relationships in the industry.


Whether you're a beginner or an experienced writer, this guide will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to take your script from concept to screen. With my guidance, you'll learn how to write a script that stands out, how to make materials to sell your script, and how to sell your script to producers or get the funding to make your movie. So let's begin this journey together and make your script a reality.
