...I wanted to sell it and with the money to translate the new 115 pages screenplay I wrote.
Are you saying you wrote the new screenplay in Greek & you need money to translate it?

It's good that you know you need a translator. How much will it cost to translate your script?
Are you sure you don't want to just film it in Greek over there?

I guess I need about 400 - 800 Euros. My screenplays are big... they are not for Greece, they are only for Hollywood.

I am curious.

You say your scripts are only for Hollywood yet you say your scripts
are not “Hollywood” plot format – that you don't follow the standard
steps Hollywood follows.

Why do you do this? If you are writing only for Hollywood why do you
not follow the standard steps Hollywood follows?

On the other side of this; your script that does not follow Hollywood
plot format just won the Grand Prize in a Hollywood screenplay contest.
Perhaps that means that some people say it can't succeed in USA but
others say it can. Not all who say it can't succeed are correct.

I only wrote two scripts, the winning short, which is not in Hollywood format and another one which IS in Hollywood format.

After I sent the short for reviews and to 10 contests, I started study deeply the Hollywood format before I started another
script, and that's because everyone was telling me that there is no future in Hollywood for a screenwriter if their scripts are
not in Hollywood format. Every single movie in Hollywood is in this format. Actually, I never found anyone saying that
someone could sell any script in Hollywood that doesn't follow the Hollywood format.

The fact that Hollywood itself gave me the grand prize is a bit "strange". Maybe, because there is no money in the prize,
they are more loose in their judging and they just look the story, and the story in that script is really nice and has a huge
surprise at the end.

Now, in the second script I have, and in all the next scripts I'll write, I'll follow the Hollywood format.
