ScreenwritingU, an award-winning, Los Angeles-based company that provides the highest quality online screenwriting classes, is pleased to announce an agreement with InkTip, named one of the best websites for moviemakers by MovieMaker Magazine. InkTip will offer ScreenwritingU’s ProSeries graduates special placement of their loglines and synopses on the website’s Executive Index and InkTip Magazine that goes out to 30,000 producers – print and online. The ProSeries Alumni is ScreenwritingU's elite screenwriting group where over 130 screenwriters have either sold or optioned their scripts, landed paid writing assignments from producers, and/or secured agents or managers. Entry into the ProSeries Alumni requires writers to complete ScreenwritingU’s ProSeries, a six-month professional screenwriting class. Information on the ProSeries page.
Hal Croasmun, president of ScreenwritingU, says, “We’re committed to adding to our current offerings the highest-level screenwriting teachers and programs in the country. I am proud to be linking our ProSeries graduates with InkTip’s proven system for matching writers with producers. Quite a few of our writers have already made deals through InkTip, so this is a natural fit for us.”
Jerroll LeBaron, founder and CEO of InkTip, says of his new arrangement with ScreenwritingU, “InkTip is always looking to recommend resources and services that will help writers, and we’re excited to partner with ScreenwritingU to promote their top-rated programs to our clients.”
Croasmun plans to distinguish ScreenwritingU not only for its acclaimed online screenwriting classes but also as a provider of career-building opportunities that screenwriters can find with no other company. He believes new writers will be attracted to the ProSeries with the InkTip arrangement as one of the course’s benefits for graduates.
Screenwriters use InkTip’s services by posting loglines of their screenplays to attract producers. In a screenwriting article on ScreenwritingU’s website, Croasmun offers practical advice to screenwriters on how to construct a logline that gets results. He writes, “Don’t be vague. My advice: Give away the best part in the logline. Your job is to find the core of the story and deliver it in the most interesting way you can.”
Established February of 2000, InkTip has one of the world’s largest client bases of entertainment professionals; contributing to the more than 150 feature films produced, over 1000 scripts sold or optioned, and scores of writers gaining agency and management representation each year through us.
