It's important to zoom out now and then, and see your project from a bird's eye view. We writers tend to get caught up in the minutiae of the script when at times we need to understand what it is about the project that will draw potential buyers. So with this podcast interview, we bring in long time manager and development executive, Rhonda Bloom, to discuss what she believes are the five key elements to what makes a script sellable. Because, really and at the end of the day, that's what we're all trying to do. Make a living as a working writer.
Rhonda is a dynamic entertainment executive, manager and producer. Her boutique literary management company, Plumeria Entertainment, places an emphasis on discovering and breaking new, upcoming talent, as well as re-energizing and identifying opportunities for experienced writers and directors. Prior to opening Plumeria, Ms. Bloom was a development executive and producer, with a special focus on television and cable films. Her experience includes tenures as Vice President of Television for Paula Weinstein's Spring Creek Productions, Vice President of Development for Producer's Entertainment Group, The Larry Thompson Organization, Dan Blatt Productions, and director of development for Zanuck-Brown Productions. Producing credits include CBS telefilms Replacing Dad, Separated by Murder, and Broken Promises, and Showtime telefilm Floating Away.
She knows her stuff and her five keys of writing a sellable screenplay are helpful, to say the least.
