Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
Hi, I just got a 10 rating on my script Blood Relative on the Blacklist. This was not from a reader, but an Industry Pro. I know a 10 is great rating, but what does it mean if it comes from a Pro - do you still get sent out on the email of 8 and above? Thanks

I think if you get a 10, the illuminati will be in contact with you shortly, so just sit back and relax, maybe grab a drink.

Unfortunately, your script only gets included in the e-mail if you received an 8 or above from a reader. But if an industry pro gave you a 10, there's a good chance your script is good enough to get a high rating from a reader as well. Even if you don't get a high score, you'll probably still end up on the Top List due to the 10 pulling up your average. Celebrate!

Thanks for the replies. I was curious about the reader versus pro rating. I couldn't see whether it rates as newsletter or not from the BL website. But I like your idea wsaunders - waiting for the iluminati.

One of the regulars here got 4 or 5 tens from his industry friends. As long as he/she is not a buddy, it's good news.

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
Hey Foxhound - nope - no buddies, or friends. I'll take a lie detector - in fact it just got another 10 - the first 10 generated an insane amount of traffic - 27 views in 4 hours, 7 pro downloads. And then it just got another 10.

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
Wherever it leads, congratulations on your script thus far!

It is reason for optimism, although there may still be some frustrating, agonizing waits on the road ahead.

Nice.

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
Thanks nativeson. It received a second 10 - it is now the top rated script on The Black List. Pretty cool, we'll see what happens.

That's great! How are they finding your script? Is it word of mouth you think? Because there's no way to search by rating-- curious what's happening, very exciting for you. Did you pay to have reader reviews yet?

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
I think it was word of mouth at first, and now with two 10's the script is now the top rated script on The Black List, so easy to find. The script is right at the sweet spot for low budget but high concept horror. Not slasher, but in the vein of Sinister, and others in that vein. Highly commercial.

Why does it say your script won an EMMY?

pangolin 03-31-2015 07:10 AM

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
I actually won an EMMY not the script. Probably shouldn't be there.

Very cool. Congrats!

You won an Emmy... what are you doing on the Blacklist??

I know. I've spent 5 years pleading with agents to read my script but were turned down due to "lack of success". And you won an EMMY? You should be able to literally get any lit agent in town on the phone.

Uh, what if the Emmy is for... could be for lots of things that have nothing to do with writing.

Or if it is for writing, what if it was won, like, a whole year ago. HW is a funny place.

That said, an EMMY? Cool.

I assume he wouldn't put an Emmy for costume design in his script information. :p

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
Emmy's are given out for lots of things, including advertisements, daytime talks shows, etc. Hopefully it is for writing, but it is still a great resume item no matter what it was awarded for.

Soooo cool!
Hope you get far, buddy.

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
Congrats on the 10. As a note, I've gotten a 10 from an industry pro. It was nice when I got it, but I didn't think too much from it. And honestly, as much as I would like to think my script was that good, unless you're David Milch or something, no one should be getting 10's. I chalked it up to an overzealous assistant. I believe you'll get sent on the weekly email, and in the end you might get more views and downloads - which isn't a bad thing. Just keep it in perspective.

You should start to query managers, agents and low level execs from Blumhouse. Mention it's the top script on the BL with two 10s.

Re: Blacklist Pro gave me a 10 - now what?
 
I popped a bottle of bubbly when I got an 8. Getting two 10s is like getting struck by lightning and then walking to the liquor store and winning the lottery. Great job !
