Or devise a multi-layered narrative for a ground-breaking game?
Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Yes Sorry, something has gone wrong. Here are some options 1 Query agents and producers to read your script.
Most of the larger players will not accept unsolicited scripts from unrepresented writers, but some of the smaller ones might if it's within their budget range. This is sort of like speed-dating for screenwriters. Writers pay a fee and the price structure is different for each event and they are given a short amount of time to pitch their stories one-to-one to development executives at the event.
This is still a longshot, because after a day full of listening to bad pitches, sometimes execs will just stop listening and stare blankly at you while you pitch. But at least you are guaranteed five minutes of their time, minimally. The Great American Pitchfest was not too long ago.
Sherwood Oaks Experimental College runs one from time to time, as well as other smaller organizations in L. And there may be other pitchfests in other cities. Google "pitchfest" to find out if there is one coming up near you. If you're one of the five finishers in this competition, not only do you get a nice cash prize, but your script gets read by all the major decision makers in Hollywood with the recommendation of being a Nicholls Fellow.
The Disney Fellowship is another good program, and there are many others.
But do your research. Just as there are many good contests that will give a winning writer money and help them further their career, there are many more that are set up just to make money for the organizers of the contest and do little to further your career.
This is where you have a small cast of actors.
One reads the scene directions from the script, while the other actors, in one or more roles, perform the dialogue and may even mime out the actions. Im trying to think of the main theater group in L. I'll add it if it comes to me, but you can also arrange one yourself. Rent a space, get some actors, and invite producers to see it.
Having a staged reading is also a good way to visualize your script, get feedback, and see what needs to be reworked in your script. Depending on how complicated and expensive the idea is, you may just want to find some independent investors and try to make it yourself, then show it on the film festival circuit.
Or even if it's too expensive or complex to make in its entirety, you can still shoot one scene or a faux trailer, which you can use as a demo reel to show the potential of your film in future pitches. All it takes is a camera and some editing software and some know-how.
Making casual contacts with some of the people who can help you further your career and building your network is the name of the game here. Maybe you go to the same gym as this agent's secretary. Maybe you buy coffee at the same Starbucks as that actor's publicist. Get to know them not in a stalkerish way and they may be able to connect you with the right people.
