Film Riot

From Short Story to Studio Bidding War


How do you take an idea from concept, to short story, to a 9 studio bidding war? In our latest episode Ryan talks with Scott Glassgold (a Manager and Producer with well over a decade of experience) about how he did exactly that! 

After getting his start at New Line Cinema and Disney, Scott Founded Ground Control, an innovative Management and Production company. From there, he’s gone on to nurture several short films and initial ideas to final feature films – such as Prospect, The Beyond, and his latest Horrorscope.

Scott is no stranger to high-profile deals like his 7 figure sale of “My Wife and I Bought a Ranch” to Netflix, or his most recent bidding war for “Occupant” that ended in a high 6 figure sale to New Line.
