What's the definition of insanity again? Doing the same thing over and over then expecting a different result. Sounds an awful lot like querying. I just finished my latest campaign. Now the wait begins. Still focusing on production companies, but the next wave will likely include managers. I need a little more time to finish my current thriller.
Earlier in the week, I retweeted an interesting article about querying actors in the hopes of generating some buzz for a script. Seems like a tricky prospect. A-listers are probably unattainable and a B-list name won't do squat for a big tent pole script. However, a lower budget script with recognizable names (an up and comer, former A-lister, TV star, someone from overseas, etc.) might get you somewhere. It really comes down to finding that ideal match between star power and budget. The odds aren't in our favor, but it's worth a shot.
