Comedy Guru Chris Fenton Gives Secrets to What He Looks for in a Script

“For Big Break (Screenwriting Contest), Todd Garner is extremely successful and well connected. If he reads something you like, you’re on the way. There are a lot of off the radar contests out there too, that might have somebody not even at Todd Garner’s assistant’s level, but they might have somebody that knows somebody that’s in the business. If they think your material is fantastic, they are going to try to move their career forward by making you move forward. Any connection you can get to somebody noticing your talent as a wrier. Big Break is a fantastic opportunity to get noticed, and probably one of the best when it comes to the contest world, but it shouldn’t be the only method of trying to get noticed. Writers should compliment that with networking, honing their craft and getting as good as possible.”
