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.

The Scoggins Report by Jason Scoggins & Cindy Kaplan September 10, 2012

September 2012 Pitch Sales Scorecard
As we noted last week, buyers have been far more interested in specs than in pitches over the past month, so rather than searching for a pattern in the past month’s four pitch sales, we thought it’d be more helpful to review 2012’s top pitch buyers and sellers going into the Fall selling season. You know, to save you the trouble of actually scanning through the below grids. Top Studio Buyers 1. Warner Bros. (9) 2. Universal (8) 3. Tie: Columbia, Paramount (7 each) Top Other Buyers 1. Tie: 1984 Films, Davis Entertainment, Indian Paintbrush (2 each) Top Agencies 1. WME (20) 2. CAA (12) 3. UTA (8) Top Management Companies 1. Energy (6) 2. Circle of Confusion (5) 3. Tie: Management 360, Principato-Young (4 each)
