Our good friend Ken Aguado has put together a handy new guide for screenwriters who have their sights set on adaptation but have no idea how to actually go about acquiring the rights to their favorite IP.
Based On: A Non-Lawyer’s Guide to Acquiring Film and Televisions Rights from Everywhere, is available on Smashwords for just $7.99, and because Ken is such a fan of LA Screenwriter, you nice folks can buy it for 40% off with this code: QT37E
The code is good for a long, long time, but we definitely recommend snatching up this guide asap, because if there’s one thing that Hollywood loves, it’s existing IP. As aspiring screenwriters, being able to present an adapted screenplay that you have the proper rights to is a HUGE step up from the rest of the crowd.
And it turns out that, in many cases, getting the rights to something is a lot easier and less expensive than you might think. The hard part is figuring out how to get started and actually gathering the nerve to ask the pertinent questions. Ken has made all of that much simpler with this extremely informative, thorough guide.
