Re: Residuals???

And just out of curiosity and more importantly to help others, were these for your films their home video departments distributed? Yes? Thus, they had to pay something. And along with that, did you...

Re: Residuals???

You don't. It's non-union so "you" are not covered by the WGA or any other guild depending on your position (SAG, DGA). If it's not in your contract to get some type of profit participation, you'll...

Re: Residuals???

Who is actually sending these to you and to you too EdFury/aka Bob? As I noted earlier in the thread from what I've understood, I'm figuring it's a payroll company of some sort that should be...

Re: Residuals???

I'm next to positive it's the distributor in many cases, since they are the ones selling the rights to air/show the movie or TV show. They get the money then their accounting department has to...

Re: Do You Think My Producer Was Racist - SCRIPTFELLA

Even though we ask everyone to hold off on responding to posts in the ANNOUNCEMENTS forums for different reasons, I've tried to show some latitude here & there over the years.

Re: Project requested, no agent/manager to send it

I do not work at an agency and never have. You can read a bit about my background to some degree on our main site ABOUT page. But I've worked for and with various directors, writer/directors and...

Re: Done Deal Pro Site

I will try to keep this relatively short so let me note a few things.

Suggestions like this are more than admirable. People have suggested in the past that DDP run a script contest and it's just a...

Re: Done Deal Pro Site

I'm more than aware of writers needing feedback, of course. People voted some time ago to hide the forums to protect their work and ideas. I simply made that happen. If people don't care any more I...

Re: So here's the situation, or rather dilemma...

I'm pretty sure Jeff is not writing the scripts -- at least not currently. He's a journalist and author, per his own site. IMDB lists authors and journalist as a "Writer" but they don't always...

Re: Forgive me if this is a silly question...

You are most welcome and completely understand about agents & managers doing some "vetting" and research on a writer that way.

Re: Dupree Miller

No, you're almost surely correct. I at least wanted to throw his name out there just in case. But again, I would highly suggest any and all stick with Los Angeles and New York.

I will simply note this in all fairness to the discussion, since I fully agree with the LA and NYC being the hubs of it all.

Re: Why are producers interested in paying me?

I gotcha. If you are pitching to studios and fairly sizeable companies, then they are going to pay. Sure. It's really the low level to nobody producers who try to get everything for cheap to...

Let me ask you this first before I note anything...

What has this EP done before? You don't have to name titles but how many films? What size budgets?

Re: How to identify managers within agency who could be a fit

I don't have a definitive answer by any means. I've never worked in the book world at all. I understand it a little, but more from doing all this and in terms of producers optioning book rights.

Re: How to identify managers within agency who could be a fit

Managers work at management firms. Agents work at agencies. Two similar, but still different things. Not the same.

Second, one of the big purposes of our main site's database is that script...

Yes. Leave it out.
