Dear Mr. /Mrs. “Agent Name Here”:
I’m keenly aware of your success in selling comedy screenplays to Universal Pictures; perhaps you would take a look at my recently completed screenplay titled “Film Festival”.
It’s a feature comedy about individuals from a Midwest town that go to extremes in order to break into the film industry. The protagonist is the hero that leads town folks into a crazy Hollywood venture to raise money and bring his town back to a working financial sustainability.
In addition to this screenplay, I’ve written two others and I’m currently working on outlines to several additional projects I have planned. If you are interested in reading “Film Festival”, contact me at the above phone number and/or email address. I understand that the industry is demanding; therefore, I could forward a copy for you to read at your leisure.
Thanks for your time.
David L. Spies
