March is usually the month we see the market start to defrost and kick into high gear. Instead, the month stayed on course and went out with the exact same about as February. Between March 1st and March 31st 2022, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs hitting the market. Of these specs, 5 have some type of attachment. So, we’re seeing an even split between February and March, but with the market primed, it plays like a smaller month than anticipated.
Between February 1st and February 28th, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs hitting the market. That is quite the jump in numbers compared to last month. Of the 19 specs out, 5 have some type of attachment. So, while some really strong material hit the market, the heat is still working at finding a home.
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.
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 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.
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.
