Sydney Wisdom of the Day - Check my Smooth Moves (or Movies)


Good news, client!  Sydney has sold Hollywood option on your book!

Has sold to new production company called "Bad Producer Sydney" Productions.  No relation, of course!  

Well, okay, a little, in that its is wholly owned by me!  But Sydney does not make the movies, of courses!  Sydney will sell yours book to REAL movie-makers.  Don't worries!  Producer Sydney will send money to you, less 25% management fee!  (Of course, Agent Sydney will also take her 20% for selling to Producer Sydney.  Is only fair!)

Sydney gets you good deal!  Not much money up front, but gets you 2% of gross profits, whichs is much better than percent of net profit!  In Hollywood, "net" means they will throw net over yous if yous is crazy enough to thinks you will get paid. "Gross" only means it would be gross if they ever actually had to pay anybody!

Of course, if you does not make much, Bad Agent Sydney's cut is small too.  But do not feel bad for Bad Agent Sydney!  Bad Producer Sydney makes her own deal!  Sydney is credited producer on movie!  No work, but Sydney makes fat check that she shares with nobodies, trailer stocked with tunas, plus 5% of the budget! (Which means Sydney gets paid if it gets made, even if it is never released!)

Also, Sydney's name is before yourses in credits!  

Also bigger!

Sydney must go now.  Already has deal to write script for sequel!  Already gots opening:


Is good to be me!
