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. Molṑn labé.

2012 Spec Market Scorecardas of May 19, 2012
As we reported inlast week’s Pitch Sales Scorecard, buyers have been snapping uporiginal pitches and specs lately at a very healthy rate. That pace continued last week:As you’ll see from the below grids,
12 specs have sold since the last Spec MarketScorecard four weeks ago.
Plus, May marks the third month in a row in which a thirdof the new specs that hit the market have sold.All in, spec sales are slightly off 2011’s heady pace, but combined pitch and spec salesare up 8% over last year despite relatively low numbers for May so far. Here are ourfavorite highlights from the past four weeks:Three studios bought two specs each (
Columbia Pictures
,
Fox
and
WarnerBros.
), and Fox got on the board for the first time in 2012.
WME
added 3 notches to its belt (the agency has sold an amazing 17 out 18specs it took out this year), and
APA
and
Paradigm
were close behind with twosales each.
Anonymous Content
sold two specs, and 8 other management companiesmade the list for the first time in 2012.We’re in very good shape as we head into summer. Enjoy the grids.
