Agents of Change

David Anaxagoras' class asked agents how to get a script read:

The answer: referrals. David admits to deleting all email queries unread. One in a thousand paper queries might make it past an assistant’s desk, but then it has to be exceptional. My impression was that the last query letter that these agents read was passed around merely as an amusing diversion. Ken stressed that you should get as many pair of eyes to look at your script as you can, and that the eyes you want are in LA — so move out to LA. Search out managers, lawyers, assistants, creative execs, young directors — anyone who might have a connection and can pass your script along.
