PLACE YOUR COMPLETED SCREENPLAY AT UK's LEADING SCRIPT SITE
Run by Writer/Director Kevin Smith
The website receives spec scripts from writers, does a professional
reading and if the script is recommended posts a synopsis and critique
of it on the site for 3 months. Writers whose scripts are passed on
get a full appraisal with suggestions to improve the script and the
chance to re-submit it for a reduced fee. Every script that has been
on site has been requested by at least three production companies including
Xingu Films, BskyB, Saltire Films, Tomboy Films, Steon Films, Gruber
Productions (Waking Ned) etc etc.

Scriptshop the first spec script website launched at Cannes
in May 2000 has just registered its first major success with the
sale of Silent Cry. Also Connor has been optioned
by the producer of The Bunker and An Ideal Husband.
The Silent Cry written by Simon Lubert is to be made into
a £3 million picture starring Emily Woof, Douglas Henshall, Frank
Finlay.The film is now in post-production.
The Silent Cry was one of the very first script synopsis
posted up on Scriptshops website.
"My agent had sent the script everywhere with no luck. When I say
everywhere I mean like most agents... to about ten production outfits,all
passed. Then I heard about Scriptshopand realised it could
give it far more exposure than my agent could ever achieve. So I thought
why not give it a shot ? When youve spent six months of your life
writing a script its worth trying everything you can.' Simon Lubert
Writer The Silent Cry
"When I heard of Scriptshop it seemed like a good idea
to take a look considering that the scripts up there had already been
professionally read and selected. As a producer this could save me valuable
time when looking for new material. Id never have believed the
first script I asked for would be good enough to literally go straight
into production with. This service cost me absolutely nothing."
