Changing Done Deal
Over the next couple of weeks we will be making some substantial changes to the Done Deal website. We'll be moving various content over to our sister site, Done Deal Pro, in an effort to consolidate all of our info under one banner. Running both sites over this past year has been a challenge. Our time is becoming more limited, and we want to make sure we offer the best information we can -- as successfully as possible -- in one place.
Exactly how will this affect our current Done Deal visitors? First, we will soon discontinue running Done Deal at the ScriptSales.com address. We'll be moving certain sections (the links page, Hollywhooped, the Examples section, our interviews, etc.) over to Done Deal Pro, where they will be offered for free, along with the free contest listings and Job Board already there.
In addition, our Done Deal message board will be moved over to replace the current Done Deal Pro forums. We will keep our message board free for everyone to continue to enjoy.
The rest of the data on Done Deal Pro will be for subscribers only.
So basically, one of my favorite free screenwriting resources on the web will be going pay. Of course, I am not complaining about their decision; I'm sure it takes a tremendous amount of effort and time to keep a generally up to date listing of script, book, and pitch sales. So they are certainly entitled to be compensated for it. And who knows? I may shell out the $24 a year they will be asking (though I'll have to compare it to the prices of competing services).
What I am doing is lamenting the loss of this free service, warranted as that loss of "free-ness" may be. Anyone know of any other similar free resources out there? HollywoodLitSales seems to be way out of date on their database (or maybe I'm just not following it clearly). Anyone got others they like?
