I want to be a director and am planning on going to VCU (Virginia Commenwealth University), apparently it is one of the best public film schools around.  Plus, I would get in state tuition.  I can be really hard headed, which can be bad, but when it comes to school, it is incredibly useful because I just keep going.  Webster, I've never heard of that, I'll have to look it up.

So, is WEBSTER like a trade school, or what.  I also really hope VCU works out for me.  I know somebody in my church who went there, right now he is a second unit director, not for films, but for commericals, short videos, that kind of thing.

I am almost done with my script and going to finish the last scene and then I will be putting on the final draft. In the meantime, I am working on my query letter and synopsis. Already, in touch with a producer who already asked me to send it to her once I am done. I am excited and I am ready.

That's great!
I finished a first version of a script last week. The script is good, a nice Shyamalan-style ending (I couldn't resist :P) and a lot of action.
The only problem is that it's only 70 pages. I want to make that at least 90, maybe 100. After that I want to try to get it somewhere, I just don't know where.

What do you guys do after you finished a script? Do you just send it to a producer/director or something else?

Erik an script should be alteast 102 to 120 pages long. Less than 100, I think studios won't accept it. After you are done with the script you should put it on final draft, copy right it or send to WGA writers guild. Then prepare a log line, query letter, synopsis. Every think should be done perfectly and its fun.

Hey, thanks for the tips Rohan, I'm still in the first draft of my film, but still, if in the future I have questions I will go to you.  Hope all goes well with the script.

Alright, thanks for your advise.
The Dutch law says that a songtext, poem or story is automatically copyrighted to the writer. As long as my script stays in Holland, it'll be fine. If I'm going to translate the script and send it to the US, it'll be a different thing.

Same thing as Mr_Glass, if I have any questions, I will ask them ;)
