QUERY LETTER ASSISTANCE
strong query letters make for strong scripts
At Screenwriting Staffing, we provide a personalized and cost-effective query letter service tailored to the unique needs of screenwriters and their screenplays. Our expertly crafted query letters serve as the essential stepping stone to building valuable connections with key industry pros, opening the door for new opportunities.
WHY WOULD A SCREENWRITER NEED A QUERY LETTER?
For busy industry professionals, sifting through hundreds of scripts daily is a time-consuming task. A well-crafted query letter serves as a streamlined solution, enabling them to quickly gauge their interest in your script. If you are valued member of SS, you know that 99% of our industry pros prefer to review a logline and synopsis before committing to a full script read. Reputable agents, producers, and companies do not accept unsolicited scripts. In this context, your query letter essentially becomes your official request to share your screenplay with them. Crafting a concise and comprehensive query letter not only increases your chances of having your script requested but also establishes your credibility as a professional screenwriter.
WHY DOES SS THINK THIS SERVICE IS NECESSARY?
With over 300 success stories under our belt, we've seen firsthand how vital a strong pitch can be. In fact, nearly 50% of those successes, including sales and options, were initiated by an effective query letter. The journey to success in the screenwriting industry always begins with a compelling pitch, and our service is designed to help you create just that.
"Thank you, SS. AWESOME job on the Amelia query! The query is great because: 1. this would have taken me forever and you are much better at it than I am. 2. you have an objective viewpoint and I don't. 3. you have seen things in it that I haven't (like the script being alternative historical fiction Sci-Fi - I'm so used to think of myself as fantasy that I wouldn't even have thought of marketing it like that) and 4. Even just from the synopsis I have gotten clues as to what came across clearly/not so much in the script 5. I appreciate having both lengths of the synopsis." -- Dana Kendler
Two dedicated staff members will carefully read your script, not just once, but twice, to ensure a comprehensive understanding of your story. Once we've grasped the essence of your screenplay, we'll begin crafting your custom query letter. These letters are yours to utilize as you see fit, and we do not retain any rights to them.
