TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
I've read here that Trackingb has lost some steam in the last years whereas Launch Pad is one of the newer contests.

Which one would you enter if you had to choose?

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
From TrackingB:
Early Entry deadline is: July 30th, 2018 ($95). Late Entry deadline is: September 4th, 2018 ($110). And the Really Late Deadline is: October 9th, 2018 ($125).

Personally, I think these prices are absurd. I remember when TrackingB first started, it was $30 to enter. I can only assume the price has ballooned to keep the number of entries down, but these guys don't even take the time to send an email when the results are announced. After you submit your script, that'll be the last you've heard from this competition... unless you're fortunate enough to make the top three finalists or honorable mention. I can't subscribe to paying that much when nothing is given in return to 99% of the entrants. I don't really care for theblcklst.com too much, but at least you're given a scorecard with actual proof they've read the script.

Is tracking-board.com even running a features Launch Pad this year? I see no mention of it on their website. Only last year's results.

I've read that only the Nicholl and Austin contests are worthwhile.

Not only is Adam the Insider at TrackingB charging far more than any other contest, he operates with zero transparency whatsoever. There is no evidence that he reads more than a handful of scripts, as he requires a logline when submitting, and if he doesn't like your logline, there is no reason to believe he is reading even one page of your script. But he gets thousands of entries for both annual contests. Do the math. The guy is raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars per year and very possibly reading only a couple dozen scripts, and promoting like 15 of them annually.



I know he does genuinely try to help the writers of those precious few scripts he actually reads and likes, but that does not in the least bit justify his predatory business model. It's a racket.

Maybe try the Kairos Prize. They only get about 500 entries, the big prize is significant, and they claim everything gets read twice. The only issue is, good or bad, they're looking for faith-based - though they say they've received some good horror and sci-fi "faith-based" in their day. Early bird is Aug-1, I think, @ $50, and it gets much more expensive after that.

I stopped submitting scripts to TrackingB years ago for this very reason. It's the most expensive contest out there, yet:

*It does not offer any feedback/notes (unlike Nicholl, Austin, and PAGE)

*It promotes only a small fraction of contest entrants (unlike the majority of renowned competitions that recognize quarterfinalists and semifinalists, including Tracking Board's Launchpad)

*It allows anyone to enter, regardless of how much they've made in screenwriting earnings (Aaron Sorkin could apply)

*It only started telling entrants to leave their names off of the title page a few years ago, indicating that for years organizers were likely biased in favor of names they recognized

*It can't even be bothered to send a notification e-mail to all entrants when it posts its finalists/winners

I think for a $95 starting price it isn't too much to ask for a bit more value for entrants. Of course, they probably argue that "if you don't want to enter, just don't" -- but the fact that writers have a choice doesn't make their business model any less sleazy.

Considering all the money that is raked in and how little proof there is of actual related work, one wonders where all those dollars go...

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
How many entries does this one get? Who are the readers? The contest is so mysterious.

Thanks for suggesting that contest. Unfortunately, or not, I could never pander to the absurd fantasies of an unethical death cult, such as Christianity, or accept (prize) money from its sectarian spin doctors.

I presume they only want scripts that are pro-faith-based, and wouldn't appreciate my anti-faith-based Protestant-Reformation-era horror script.

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
Nice to receive your calm, thoughtful consideration on the topic of so-called "faith" films.

Anyway, I have my own no-go zone: I check a producer's credits, and if they've done anything pornographic - by which I mean hiring a bunch of nobodies to frolic in the nude for any more than 10 percent of the film, with the express purpose of generating a crass almighty buck while bypassing any serious attempt at respect, creativity, and meaning in the film, and avoid doing the honest hard work of, well, "work" - they don't get a chance to make a penny, let alone millions, off of my I.P.

Until we sign on the bottom line, it's the one and only time we get to be God - sorry, "dictator" - about the fate of our written creations.

I did well in trackingb contest years ago when I was young!

Just got an email about TV 5 finalists and winner.

In the email 3 out of 5 have reps -- can't tell if all were because of this contest or already had it. Only one says JUST SIGNED.

the other 2 don't have reps and one of those 2 is the WINNER of the contest.

Now I'm sure that leads to getting signed, but you never know...

And of the 3 reps, one is at a big place and the other 2 are firms I never heard of. Doesn't mean they aren't legit or bad, just saying...

Oh... By big I was thinking agency. But, got it. 360.

Yeah, it's curious. Why is this person's script in a contest if they're already repped? Maybe they got repped between when they sent it in and when they were announced via their own hustle?? Otherwise, I don't get it.

There are lots of repped writers who enter contests -- mostly to draw additional career heat or attention to a screenplay. I understand if there are some contests that allow this, but I honestly wish that the biggest ones (Nicholl, Austin, PAGE) drew a firm line and said that you must be unrepresented to enter. I know it's hard even when you're repped, but...it feels a tad unfair that people with the added advantage of existing connections and feedback from industry representatives get to compete with everyone else.

I've been seeing a couple of prominent actors who've pursued writing on the side entering contests, and every time I see their names I'm like -- can't you use your own connections and leave those with zero access a shot? Seriously, Shia Labeouf! (he's literally in every contest)

Seriously, Shia Labeouf? WTF!?

Hadn't heard that. Odd. He's putting his name on these scripts or fake name?

My view is: It seem like most reps like to CONTROL their client's reads. You don't want your client you're telling the town is the new hot flavor to score low. I don't totally get it as a strategy [recommending contests to your client]. Btw - I used a fake name when I sent my scripts to Nicholl for exactly that reason. Glad I did, they gave me an "F" on both scripts.

But, agreed, there should be a cut off if you're signed, not just the script in question already sold. Don't they disqualify you if the script has sold in the meantime? I think they should do the same if you find a rep in the meantime. Leave it to those without reps struggling to find one. IMO

Yep -- he's using his real name. Just two examples:

https://www.wescreenplay.com/blog/an...ntest-winners/

https://pageawards.com/past-winners/...ter-finalists/

Smart of you to use a pseudonym when you entered.

Yep, there's a cutoff if you've achieved a certain level of earnings, usually.

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
It would be way easier to compete if that were the case. Usually for the final 10 spots you're going up against the usual suspects of the vets who've been at the game for a while that you saw on other lists.

I knew the Blacklist was a joke when Sorkin made the list. You probably haven't heard of the guy.

Honey boy looks great. He's a great actor. He's insane like most child stars and most actors. He's done some interesting things like when we watched him sit in a theater for 48 hours or something?

I liked that art exhibition thing, where he just sat there and his fans could come in and talk to him. I think being in the creative field, we're all a little more emotional because we're constantly being judged.

I remember my last manager told us to beg to be on the blacklist and he would do the same. I did not do that as I thought that was super lame. Also I didn't write a bio pic of Walt Disney.

I think for the past 5-7 years, half the scripts they love are bio pics and often there are 2 of them and that's so weird. Like it will be a random celebrity like Elvis and 2 scripts about him make the blacklist? Why were 2 Elvis scripts written in same year that were so good they made the list?

And yes, you think the black list would be the best scripts, but also scripts that weren't about to be made or written by huge writers. Like I thought the idea was to expose scripts people may have missed. You don't miss a Sorkin script.

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
I wonder how much relevance the trackingb contest has nowadays? I don't hear any success stories out of that camp and there's no justification for why their entry fee went from $30 (early entry) to $95 (early entry). The late entry fee is $125 and they offer nothing in return, not even a notification email of selected honorable mentions/finalists. Contests are essentially a lottery, given reader bias and subjectivity, so those entry fees are a steep price to pay for 99% of the players. Count me out.

catcon 08-16-2019 03:48 PM

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
Outrageous.

Maybe it was that last RGA strike (that's "Readers" Guild of America, ha ha) that's forced all the contests to bump up their entry fees.

Anybody know if the reading fee average has gone up? I still ponder the LinkedIn profile of that young woman reader on BL, who said (boasted?!) about reading 3-5 scripts per day!!! Maybe 'reading is the new writing' when it comes to career and money-making opportunity?!

Bono 08-16-2019 08:06 PM

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad
 
My guess is less people entering so you raise the price... also I assume that the industry panel reading the scripts (I don't know if they read every one or only the top 10% or whatever...) gets paid to do it. That was always my take on it...

There big success story a couple of years ago (that they still promote like crazy) was Micky Fischer. He was an unknown making so-so Indy movies in the Midwest. Submitted his pilot to TrackingB. It won (or was a finalist), got him a manager who got the pilot to Amblin who got it to CBS who actually made it! So 1 in a million but he probably wouldn’t have a TV career without TrackingB.

Mickey was just a finalist. Someone else won. The other finalists must be scratching their heads wondering why they didn't get the same result.

And yes, you think the black list would be the best scripts, but also scripts that weren't about to be made or written by huge writers. Like I thought the idea was to expose scripts people may have missed. You don't miss a Sorkin script.

The Annual Black List is simply the "favorites" as voted on by about 250 industry people. it is not a "best of" list at all. so for Sorkin's Social Network in 2009, it was sent all over town, everyone read it, it seems. that's why it was #2 on the list that year.

i remember thinking, "who cares." then i read it and was so entertained and astonished at the opening i was like, this is amazing. felt the same way when i read Inglorious Basterds, too. that opening 13 pages is ****ing amazing.

you're right though about the bio pics. it seems that's the majority of the specs. there are a few that look good from last year's list. i'm trying to read at least two a week. i've read in the past two weeks--

The Beast
Dark (really good, fast)
Blonde Ambition
Evil CBS 2019 pilot

ones that look good? Blur, Drudge, Analytica and a few others. i wonder if we could start a private group for writers to review black list scripts? it'd be fun to discuss. not to trash writers, just to talk about the craft, you know?

Tyler Marceca who wrote The Disciple Program. you might not know the real story...

there's a contest called "The Industry Insider" competition where an A-lister gives a logline and you have to write the first 15 pages. i was a finalist once and it's a really fun way to write. i loved it.

anyway, in 2011 Robert Mark Kamen's logline was:

"After waking to find his wife dead in their backyard, a man conducts his own investigation, and uncovers the hidden life of a woman he thought he knew."

so Tyler was a finalist. that's where his idea for The Disciple Program came from. he finished the script then it went on to a bidding war. i read it, think it was on The Black List, too. very entertaining. fast read. Mark Walhberg is still attached to produce. still hasn't got made.

so if you want killer loglines for a story, it's a great place to check out. even the past loglines are great.

i did the same thing with my spec called The Devil's Elbow, i posted the opening pages here a few years ago, but i never did anything with the spec because my manager-not-manager didn't think he could do "anything" with it. totally forgot about it, i recently let someone else read it, and they liked it so, i'll be rewriting that one in the future. i love so much about it. it's a modern day crime noir in the vein of Chinatown meets DOA.

geez, i'm all over the place today.

Dude... I've had hella false starts.

You know what will absolutely fukk with your head?

1) First script you write gets you repped at a big4 agency.

2) Second script you write has a huge producer calling you from on set of his current (100 mil) film to offer you a job.

3) First TV show you ever write sells. And the showrunners you dreamed of attaching fukkin DO!


Now you think "Sheeeeet man, I know what the fukk I'm doing, bruh!" No you fukkin don't! Especially early on, don't fall for your own hype. You will LIKELY crash at some point (i.e. "Crap Out" on something) and have to reevaluate your entire writing prowess.

I picture you sipping a tallboy by the pool after the above 3 somehow. So....anyone find happiness? :D I think many go in thinking they'll be like Dan Fogelman.....pretty much get hot after the first thing they write and then are pretty much in demand after that. I am guessing that's not the reality for many.

Yup... only, sub tequila. ;-)

I was like "Bruh, here the fukk I am... MADE IT!" LOL

VOICE OC: "Bro, no you have not! Chill bruh! You ain't sh!t yet... WATCH!"

Yeah, almost no one's journey is smooth. Most have plenty of false starts. Especially in this current climate. Gotta keep the ego in check.
