can anyone tell me how to go baout getting permission of copyrights for Gaiman's Story "October in the Chair" I have written a screenplay from it and his literary agent is being "difficult". I just want it to be seen by someone in Mr. Gaimons "click". and say hey this is great or nice and offer to do something with it. HELP! oh and by the way is it true that "the High Cost of Living" is being released the summer of 08 as a movie?

sorry spacecowboy, it looks like your actually going the right way already. the faq agrees with the literary agent method
I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.
the parrot... ...gets tiresome.
the parrot... ...i ate him.
That stoy would make a great screenplay--sorry about the reject.
And yeah, the first Death graphic novel will be a movie soon--I can't wait!

I would love to see October in The Chair acted out. I really love Dearly and I wish I knew what happened next... October really should have finished the story...
But if he won't will Neil? If he's not too busy?
Isn't THE GRAVEYARD BOOK a more extensive variation on the story?
Personally I prefer Runt's end to remain a mystery.
actually Runts destiny is still unanswered in my screenplay. I am not a hollywood type that has happy endings all the time. the sp is finnished and still I cannot get info on how to get it to the proper people for permission to shoot. thinking about shooting it gorilla style then submitting it then. what do you all think?

The proper people is the Literary Agent.
Shooting it and then submitting it is a pretty well guaranteed means to provoke lawyers into action. You do not have the rights to shoot it or to adapt it. You will have no legal way of distributing it or showing it in public. You would not really have a means to raise money or get a producer.
And it isn't permission you seek, but to obtain the rights to the piece to adapt and shoot it.
And if you shoot it and then present it, you will get lawyered and have to buy those rights. Plus costs.
Of course, a student film might have different requirements. But a persons creative output is not there to be adapted will-nilly by anyone who fancies their chances with it.
If Neil's agent has said no, then that is the answer. If you cannot afford to buy the rights, then frankly any film you shoot will be expensive and worthless as you would not get to show the film.
I don't mean to be so negative, but this is how things stand. Without the rights, there is no film to make.
And the chances are someone already owns those rights.
