Re: Another Query Question. I Know Its A Pain

I've tried different approaches. But the one I get most repsonse I pasted below. It contains no fluff, just right to the point. I figure by putting the logline right on top, that will at least get...

Re: Quick Response to Query

I had several script request reads last week (my first!) and I was confused about the whole thing as well. It was the release form that confused me since it is a legal doc. :confused: For one of...

Re: Screenwriting Contest Successes

I just want to jump in with my 2 cents here-- If I read this post ten days ago, I would have been so discouraged. Why? Because that's when I started my blind query email campaign. I honestly didn't...

Re: What do I say?

That's what I was thinking too (that he didn't get what the producer got logline/synopsis). It's just weird that he would forward him my email address but not the message.

Re: What do I say?

In my original email (that was sent to the Producer) I sent my logline and one paragraph synopsis--so I am not sure what more he is looking for me to tell him about it. Maybe a more expanded version...

Re: All Caps

I did that at first in my script. The problem was, I felt there was something in almost every scene that needed to stand out and I ended up with caps all over place-- Since I couldn't use my CAPS...

I agree with previous post--I thought my analysis was thorough and had some great suggestions (some of which I plan to change)--I was just thrilled that the reader "got it". I pasted it below~

How was your story born?

I totally believe that we have the ability to tap into a creative energy. For me that energy comes from meditation-- in a state of not thinking. Even though the genre of my story was based around...

Re: Trackingb.com

Re: Hancock

I agree, it lost steam in the second half. Although Hancock was a "changed" man, he barely resembled his former self in the second half. It was like watching a whole new character. :eek:

Re: Reading Fees

I have personally paid for consulting on my script. It was in the early stages and the guy basically told me it stunk! In retrospect that info. was worth the $$ b/c it motivated me to go back, start...
