Good Fear

Scott Stoops (Good Fear Film + Management)

An up-and-coming executive, Scott started his career as an assistant within the Physical Production department at Paradigm, working under heavy-hitters Brian Goldberg and Michael Kirschner. Eventually treading through the demanding waters of the agent trainee program at Paradigm, Scott moved to Benderspink assisting the founding partner, JC Spink. Scott most recently was a junior manager at Benderspink and is now a manager at Good Fear Film + Management.

Good Fear Film + Management will be considering the Top 100 scripts in the hopes of finding their next rising star.


Justin Lothrop (Head of Development – Votiv Films)

Justin, after being medically discharged from the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY, completely changed direction and decided to find an industry that would allow him to apply his left-brained strengths to his right-brained sensibilities. Since then, he has produced a number of projects ranging from small new media content to full length features. His most recent credits include co-producing Rodney King directed by Spike Lee released on Netflix on the 25th anniversary of the riots and producing As You Are which was awarded a Special Jury Prize at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and recently wrapped up a limited theatrical release. Currently, Justin resides in Los Angeles, CA working as the Head of Development for Votiv Films.

“Listening to Jacob is like taking a master class in screenwriting and having your head cleared in a therapy session at the same time.”

“Krueger has such a surgically clear understanding of what makes a story work on screen.”

“Jake is a powerhouse lecturer! I found his teaching more than helpful and his focus on creative freedom refreshing!”

“I loved Jake’s advice on building structure through my character’s wants. It actually was easy to apply to a script I’m revising–most specifically creating obstacles and torturing my characters. He is a tour de force, he thinks quickly on his feet, and he’s super generous!”
