There's a lot of Great Material out there. Too bad most of it doesn't make it to the Theaters.
You have a Professional well drafted feature film Screenplay you took a year to make that you want to make into a Movie. You are an Actor looking for Exposure. You are a Producer looking for Funding. You are Serious about getting your Movie Made. You don't want it to take 6-20 years to get your Screenplay made into a Movie.
You are bothered by the current development process where a Producer's reader who has never made a movie or written a screenplay gets back to you 3 or more months after you finally had it accepted for submission just to pass because they don't understand how your blueprints translate into a Great Movie because they have never made or used a set of blueprints to make a movie and are reading the script for the Producer or Development Executive since that person doesn't have time to read your screenplay.
where writers and actors come together to attract producers and investors to make great movies while protecting and promoting the writers and giving exposure to the Best Acting Talent available in movies today.
Every week a group of Professional Actors videotape a screenplay reading of a selected screenplay and make them available to Malibu TV for them to air the Screenplay Reading as many times as possible. And if you're looking to get your project considered, well "you know who lives in Mailbu."
In fact, the Actors who personally know about The Malibu Screenplay Reading Group include John Savage, Martin Landau, Adam Sandler, Mel Gibson, Nick Nolte, Linda Hamilton, Cher, Shirley MacClaine, Quentin Tarantino, David Carradine, Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, Tracey Reiner, Harry Dean Stanton and Michael Madsen. Almost all of them have said they would show up themselves to a Reading on a Friday when they are in town, based on their availability. Aren't these the type of people you are trying to get your script to?
Here's how it works. You submit your Screenplay for Consideration. Film Editors and Script Supervisors don't critique it, they just tell us Yes or No we should do a Reading. If you are concerned about Protecting your Screenplay, think of this, the Absolute Best Protection is to Publish it on TV.
If your screenplay is the Best Submitted for the Month, you get a FREE Screenplay Reading. If your Screenplay is not the Best that Month, but is accepted for a reading, you can stop there or pay to have it read. If you decide not to have it Read, it's your loss, you only had to pay for the Submission Fee (currently $59). No Big Deal.
As Soon As you Pay the Screenplay Consideration Fee on-line with your credit card on our Secured Server, you get an E-Mail receipt which you Forward to email@example.com with your screenplay attached in either ScriptThing, Movie Magic ScriptWriter or Word format, you then print out the release form, sign it and send it with your script via snail mail to MSRG, P.O. Box 1091, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.
Every month, the Best Script Submitted for Consideration for the Month will get the Reading done for Free (a $1,250 Value). If your screenplay is not the Best for the Month, but is choosen for a Reading you will be notified via E-Mail and you will then pay the low Special Introductory Rate for any Scripts chosen out of the First 100 for putting it all together, taping it and editing the Screenplay Reading for ONLY $1,150 (A savings of $100). Submit Now before all the Slots are Taken.

The Founder, Larry Eudene, is a Film Director with 16 years of Experience in the film business.
The Readers are all Script Supervisors or Editors who have made Movies for years (not inexperienced people straight out of school who have not written a screenplay and who have never worked on a film set).
The Actors are all Professionals and are associated with either SAG, AFTRA or Equity.
The Cable System is Charter Communications owned by Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft).
The Plans for the Future are to read 52-104 scripts a year for the first 4 years and to have them available both on Cable and through this website in Audio and Video formats, so that as a Writer you can point a potential backer to this site and they can hear or see your Screenplay Reading on-line.
The Average Screenplay (if any good) takes 2-6 years from being written to getting it Produced into a Movie.
Chariots of Fire took 20 years.
Forrest Gump 7 years.
And the List goes on and on.
The MSRG was created with the hope that it would reduce the time it takes you to Get Your Movie done. It is based on the model for Fifth Night at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York, although we have taken things a step further by filming it and putting it on TV as local access to a highly movie industry concentrated community.
