Candidates must have precise, detailed-oriented organizational skills, as well as excellent verbal communication and writing abilities.
Between November 1st and November 30th, we tracked a total of 23 new feature specs out on the market. November tends to be a mixed bag year over year. This month traditionally marks the end of the literary calendar where most agents and managers are wrapping up going out with new material.
The ideal candidate is a self-starter with a desire to be promoted internally to Literary Manager, and is skilled at giving notes, industry networking, and interacting with writers.
Between August 1st and August 31st, we tracked a total of 15 feature specs out. This marks the third month in a row where specs have decreased. However, we all predicted the low rate of material out between vacations and productions slowly rolling out.
Between July 1st and July 31st, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs out. This is a decline from the specs out the previous month, but it was to be expected with many taking long-awaited vacations, coupled with the bottlenecking we’re seeing in the development chain. However, it’s not the drop-off we anticipated and is still on par with the past month’s numbers.
Between May 1st and May 31st, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs out. We’ve seen a progressively steady decline of specs hitting the market since re-openings have started to rise. May marks the second lost number out, next to January. The more shocking number is that of the 19 feature specs out, only 2 have some type of attachment, with one additional spec from a past month selling in May.
The program will provide an opportunity for participants to hone their craft with the guidance of some of the Animation industry’s most talented artists. You’ll make connections, get the experience you need, and if all goes to plan, this may lead to a job offer on one of our productions.
Between April 1st and April 30th, we tracked a total of 22 feature specs out. While it’s a positive from last April, it’s continuing our steady decline of specs from the past couple of months. We’ve seen a 12% decrease in specs from March’s count. We’ve continued to decrease in specs since February, wherein in a traditional market, we’d see increases in April, a hot month for the material.
Between March 1st and March 31st, we tracked a total of 25 specs out. This marks a minimal 2.8% decrease in specs from February’s count. So, while March did not outperform February, we saw little drop-off between the months. Of the 25 specs out, 9 have some type of attachment.
Responsibilities will include scheduling, rolling calls, managing submissions, heavy reading, coverage, and giving development input.
Love is in the air as we reach what some believe to be the most romantic month of the year – February. Sure we had yet another impeachment trial, but from awkward online Hinge dates to sweet cards from Grandma, February is showing some promise on all fronts.
