The Scoggins Report is a terribly unscientific analysis of the feature film development business based on information assembled from a variety of public and non-public sources. The numbers in the reports are by no means official statistics. Caveat emptor. Check out the newsletter's new home on SpecScout.com.

The Scoggins Reportby Jason Scoggins & Cindy KaplanMay 6, 2013
April 2013Spec Market Roundup
We don’t want to jinx anything, but we sure picked an auspicious time to move theScoggins Report into its new home onSpecScout.com.
April 2013’s 14 spec sales isthe highest monthly total in nearly a year, since June 2012.
As a matter of fact, it’samong the highest monthly numbers in over five years -- 4th highest since we begantracking in 2008.As you’ll see below, starting this week,
project titles in the report are now linked tothe corresponding Spec Scout page
, so you can click to see the several projectswe’ve covered and scored there.Other than the high total, April’s sales were so broadly distributed across the buy sidethat our highlights this month focus solely on the sell side:
UTA
had the best month among the agencies, with 3 spec sales, but most of theusual suspects got in on the action, including 4-month-old
Resolution
.It was much the same on the management company side -- lots of familiarnames, with
Benderspink
and
Energy
setting up 2 each.
