Re: Short story sells for 7 figures

Satriales, have you sold/optioned any scripts yet? If yes, then you have already "broken in" and have the credentials to back you up so why the need to write a short story?

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Hey Catcon,

We were just talking about Canada this weekend. You guys have a ton of movies (TV series/features/MOW) being shot up there.
