Is Peter Jackson too late ??

"But at the same time I’m also aware that audiences are getting fed up with the lack of original ideas and original stories...."

Ben, dude, seriously, you should spend a whole lot less time reading junk on the net and more time actually writing.

TIP: Open your script-composing program, not your web browser.

I like that Ben brings us these articles. It's like having our own press secretary. I liked reading this one and I certainly hope all the studios read it and said to themselves: "Note: make conscious effort to purchase more original scripts."

Thanks Ben!

Ben- anyone who has not yet managed to tune you out or put you on ignore has already decided to read your post when they click on it.

Therefore, there is no need to bold and COLOR every stupid thing you post.

I really, seriously wish the mods would limit your posting access so as to be able to weed out anything that is not in plain goddamned text.

Rainbow coalition? Color is good.

I don't think so. He's pleasantly eccentric in his "own way".

My advice: concentrate on YOUR career.
