Daniel Noah of SpectreVision

Has anyone worked with Daniel Noah, who is partners with Elijah Wood in SpectreVision? They make horror features but I think also some dramas (and television).

Re: Would you sign this?

The language in the release is absurd. It essentially says, "Even if we decide to steal your idea, you can't sue us." It's like signing an employment contract that says: "If you get injured or...

Re: WGA votes to restrict agency packaging

Gordon Gekko: "Greed is good. It cuts through and clarifies..."

Do I believe that? Not necessarily. However, it does state a fact of human nature, which we really cannot change.

Re: Adam Kolbrenner

Good point. The podcast was a few years ago.

But we are creatures of habit. He also said that he reads hard copies of all scripts. My guess is he still reads snail mail queries (based on his...

Re: Is this release okay to sign?

As a former lawyer I can offer this: even if the release form seems to put you at a disadvantage, a judge will ensure that it conforms to prevailing law. In other words, if the release says, in...

Re: Adam Kolbrenner

He formed Lit Entertainment Group (which you probably already know). I watched a podcast interviewing him on Scripts and Scribes, and he said he "likes" snail mail queries. So I sent him one a few...

Writer's Market

Well, it's almost "Pitch Season" and I'm dying to start pitching my television drama, The Night Watch. Alas, I don't have many producers lined up. I'm considering buying the Writer's Market, which...

Re: Atlas Artists

Thanks for the info, Will.

I notice many of the "management" companies on IMDb Pro have tons of actors as clients. I wonder if these companies are just wrongly listed as management when they...

Re: Atlas Artists

The reason I ask, is that some of their staff are "literary managers" but I don't find any writers listed among their clients. It's a bit confusing.

I know that Atlas Entertainment is a prodco and...

Re: After read request, how long does it take?

Thanks everyone for great feedback. It's been 3 weeks and I'm still waiting...I was starting to get depressed, but now have scintilla of hope.

Re: Unsolicited queries to prodcos

From your feedback, I conclude that some prodcos read queries (even if they say they don't), but the chances for this type of query resulting in a read request is extremely low. Right so...

Atlas Artists

Do they represent writers? On IMBd Pro I only found actors (eeewww!) as clients.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Unsolicited queries to prodcos

Great to know. I just wanted to confirm there is a chance a query would be read before sending any out.

Thank you, FinalAct4.

Unsolicited queries to prodcos

It's my understanding (which could be totally wrong) that production companies don't accept unsolicited queries. However, in reading your posts it seems that you are getting some traction with...

After read request, how long does it take?

Once you've got a read request (and submitted material), any experience on a timeline for getting a call (assuming, of course, they like it)? Weeks? Months?

Re: What's a realistic batting average on queries?

Great question. I just finished sending 10 queries (to managers) for my pilot and got 2 read requests. I think my log line is good because I got some attention (semifinalist) for a pitch...

Re: Things I see over and over in amateur writing...

I have to agree with Cyfress on how writers come to the real story by rewriting and rewriting. One of Alan Ball's first drafts of American Beauty was about a serial killer (it was the drug dealing...
