If You Are Trying to Publish Your Play or Audio Book, Production Credits Mean Everything

  

Guaranteed Airplay for Spoken Word Audio Works (Poetry, Story Telling, Comedy, and more) 

 

Actors Scene Unseen can add you audio work from CD or  mp3 to it's ever growing collection of Spoken Word works.

 

Your digitized music will be played in 12 monthly 2-part programs.

 

Actors Scene Unseen is now a full voting member of the Grammy Recording Academy in the Producers and Engineers Wing. As a voting member of the Recording Academy, Actors Scene Unseen is able to submit recording to the Academy for Grammy nomination consideration.

 

Actors Scene Unseen has partnered with Digital Distribution giant IODA to supply audiobook and Spoken Word works to its 250+ Digital Distribution subscriber companies.

 

In addition to its music publishing, Actors Scene Unseen is now also an official literary and audiobook publisher and can register and submit your works to "Books in Print".

 

Most of the publishers we work with in our season will not consider a script for publication unless it has had a significant production. For these publishers Actors Scene Unseen productions are significant.

 

 

EXPressIt Productions is a new service from Actors Scene Unseen that can deliver a significant production production credit. Your play can dovetail seamlessly into our current season offerings. What on-demand publishing has brought to the literary and independent music worlds, Actors Scene Unseen brings to the theatre world.

 

ExpressIt Productions are created on a fixed, pre-negotiated price and are inclusive of all time and material required by the format of the production type (theatre, sets, props, costumes, Internet bandwidth, promotion, etc). There is a nonrefundable submission fee for each play submitted for ExpressIt Productions consideration. The subission fee is $75 for each full-length or long one-act work, and $35 for each short one-act or short story. The submission fee will be applied to the production price when your project is costed. You play will be evaluated by no less than two readers and you will receive detailed feedback and recommendations about your play's suitability for each of the available formats. You feedback will include marketing research on the estimated popularity of your play in the selected format.

Why is there a Submission Fee?

Unlike most on-demand book publishers, Actors Scene Unseen has a full schedule of its own productions. The thorough and careful evaluation of a script requires time and research. Also unlike on-demand book publishers, Actors Scene Unseen can provide a number of different productions format. The evaluation of the artistic and marketing merits of a script and its suitability for each of these formats takes the time of dedicated professionals.
