There are many things that lovers of film and professional collectors desire to have as part of their celebrity collectibles. If a collector has a great love and admiration for a specific film for instance, they will desire to own anything and everything that is associated with the film. This could include the original theatrical poster, costume pieces, set pieces, or other valuable items that will make their collection stand out from the rest.
One specific item that collectors generally attempt to obtain and add to their celebrity collections is autographed scripts.
Many methods can be used to obtain a screenplay from your favorite films. In fact, the majority of screenplays can be found for download and view directly over the Internet. However, most collectors will desire to find a hard copy of the screenplay that was actually used while the film was in production. These items are generally very hard to find unless you have inside sources working with the production company, or personally know the actors and actresses working on the motion picture.
However, don’t lose hope of obtaining an autographed script to add to your collection. Most movie productions and studios are aware that there are collectors out there who would love to get their hands on a autographed script. Therefore, they generally require their actors to sign a specific number of scripts while the movie is in production. They then use these autographed scripts as part of contests that are related to their films production.
When a film begins advertising they will run a variety of contests in order to gain interest in their project. Many of these contests will indeed include autographed scripts as part of the prize package. One way for you to acquire an autographed script to add to your collection is to enter these contests. However, there is no promise that you will actually win the contest or ever see the screenplay.
Still, many individuals who do win such contests actually have no interest is collecting the items themselves. Therefore, they will turn around and auction off the items including the autographed scripts to the highest bidders.
Another method used to obtain autographed scripts is to attend celebrity based or Hollywood based auctions where you know such items will be up for bid. You can generally find out when such auctions are being held by contacting a local celebrity memorabilia store. Especially if they deal in harder to find items. In fact, many celebrity memorabilia stores will acquire autographed screenplays on their own and will showcase and sell them from their stores.
Simply contact a variety of celebrity memorabilia stores and ask them if they carry the autographed screenplay that you are seeking to obtain. If they do not carry the item ask them if they can attempt to acquire it or if they have any other leads that could help you in obtaining the item for your celebrity collection.
Autographed scripts as celebrity collectibles are a hot commodity that will make your celebrity collection shine.
