Where is the best place to buy produced screenplays? 12-point courier, 8.5x11", brass-brad screenplays. Not buy to make, but buy to read and study?
I have to purchase a bunch for a course I'm teaching, and I'm wondering if there are any reputable dealers/publishers who sell in quantity. I need to purchase 20 copies of three or four scripts (I haven't decided on exactly which titles I want to use, yet).
Unfortunately, the "shooting scripts" available at bookstores/Amazon.com (Newmarket
seems to be the primary publisher) just won't cut it. The formatting is incorrect and I want my students to read the actual versions of the scripts that were read by agents, actors, producers, directors, etc.
I've done some Googlin
', but all the sites I'm finding seem...well, less-than-reputable. But maybe I'm just being picky. Any experience with any of these stores?
I also know that a tremendous number of scripts are available for download (dailyscript.com
), but the legality of simply printing out PDFs for my students seems iffy. Any thoughts on this?
