Welcome back to Business of Film, episode 40. This episode we take an in-depth peak behind the curtain at Specscout.com and The Scoggins Report. The site combines a script coverage library with a scoring system in order to highlight the best screenplays circulating Hollywood
This episode we chat with Jason Scoggins, the founder of Specscout as he gives us a personlized walkthrough of the platform.
Spec Scout’s mission is to be the best place to discover and promote the highest-quality screenplays, both on and off the market.
They’ve built a first-of-its-kind coverage library, developed a screenplay scoring system called the Spec Scout Score, and rolled everything up into a website designed to meet the needs of entertainment industry pros. They aim to promote the best material, whether it’s already circulating Hollywood or has been submitted by aspiring screenwriters.
The result is a new level of transparency for the spec market, a level playing field for screenwriters, and a brand new way for aspiring writers to break into the business.
Truly interesting stuff. I highly recommend you sit on front of a computer and do the walk through live with Jason as you listen to the podcast. Or just have a listen and noodle around later. Either way, it was great to have Jason on the show and to chat in depth about the spec market.
In this episode we talk about:

– How Spec Scout tracks data.

– How to get free coverage.

– The spec scout score and how it can work for you?

– For industry pro’s and producers, how spec scout can help you find material.

– How you can get into the Spec Scout market.

– and much much more…
