I have had a number of projects come my way through the sheer luck of being within earshot of someone needing something written. One of the quickest and easiest ways to getting your script produced is to know a producer/filmmaker. This means one thing to me, get to know filmmakers. Or become one... that works too. If you are a filmmaker say hi! If you want to form an alliance and take over the world, message me! If you have ideas or experience in making connections with filmmakers, respond here!

Great strategy, Christopher. Also checkout Stage 32 and LinkedIn as great places to try and connect with filmmakers.

Excellent resources, CJ! Also, every city has filmmakers. If you have the time you can work on small films. Acting, crew, just basic support, learning the filmmaking trade while meeting people who do it out of passion is a great way to network.

Absolutely. Get involved and get your hands dirty. A great way to learn and build relationships.

State film offices can be a good resource. Some have listings for films in production in the state with info on crew needs, casting calls, extras, etc. There may also be job guides, lists of production companies, and contacts for production managers. Some states offer screenwriting competitions for scripts set in the state. Varies a lot by state and many in flux now but can be a good place to start for local contacts.
