Company description

Business Summary: A one-click script market for new online video. 

Hollywood is one click away from a radically new business model. Imagine this: writers post their scripts online while producers browse the offerings. When producers find a script that meets their criteria, they purchase a non-exclusive, pre-approved license to turn that script into video and post it online. This is our vision for video in 2009. It will all happen with Scripped.


Team
Business model

Revenue Model: Pay-to-post, pay-to-purchase and partnerships. 

Scripped currently does not earn revenue but has designed a system to create cash flow that will be live in the coming months. We are not able to publish these details in a public forum. Currently, we allow free access to Scripped Writer, our online writing tool, to create the largest pool of screenwriting talent available.

Competitive advantage

Competition: Old technology and no new market potential.

Final Draft, produced by Final Draft, Inc., has been the most popular screenwriting box software for over 20 years. Movie Magic Screenwriter, produced by Write Brothers, is also popular with professionals. Celtx, a new player in this market, offers a free, downloadable software with modest internet distribution capabilities. ScriptBuddy and Plotbot are our only browser-based screenwriting competitors but both rely on old technology. ScriptShark, founded in 1998, is the only successful feature-length script market and was recently purchased by Baseline Systems. TriggerStreet is a free online peer-review service founded in 2000 by actor Kevin Spacey and receives fewer than 15,000 unique hits each month.
