Re: Self-sacrifice in a comedy?

Like anything else, self sacrifice can work beautifully or it can come out hokey. All depends. It's not a new moment in film, as many films have done and continue to do it. That doesn't mean that...

Re: 20/20 on Harvy Weinstein

I saw some disturbing news about Paul Haggis today. I hate to hear that. I like his work. I liked Crash and I believe he wrote Million Dollar Baby if I am not mistaken.

You know, he is an ex...

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

If we only had such anticipation, and suspense in our stories, we'd be in great shape.

See, right about now is when Jeff and I reveal that we want everyone to send $19.99 to this paypal account:...

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

I'll book all bets on Jeff. You have to lay $350 to win $100 on Jeff. Ah, reminds me of the good ole days.

In all honesty, I'm glad it's not some random TV pilot from an amateur. That would be...

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

As long as we read the same material, I think it will be a fair contest Jeff.

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

This is an amateur script, you mean it's not a feature. Story is story though whether it's in 30 pages or 120. There will be characters going through something, chasing something, etc. Is there...

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

The ironic thing is, a very successful, female TV Writer/Producer out in LA, who worked on King Of Queens and now works on Two Broke Girls grew up about 3 houses down from me in Philly. I'm sure if...

Sounds good. So Comic, would you prefer a word document over a PDF?

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

Run off? Jeff has never been more involved. Why would he run off? This is a fun, spirited contest. It's good for DD and the DD community.

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

Look, Jeff knows that Jeff can write his notes in a way where people know it is him. All he has to do is get into the technical points of shooting a TV show and how that impacts a script, which I...

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

I have to say, I don't care where I read the scripts, but I trust Comic with the notes. And to be honest, I don't think there's a conspiracy or will be one. Jeff's notes will be his, mine will be...

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

ok, I got it. Don't use writing jargon. Spellcheck. Don't call Kitchona Steve plain Kitchona. Don't make excuses if I lose. Don't write heavy blocks of dense paragraphs. Anything else?

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

The only reason I spent the $7.99 to rent A Ghost Story Connor is because you raved about it in the film section. I feel like you owe me $4 since you are partly responsible.

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

I never use terms like that when talking to someone about their script. Those are general terms, I try to be very specific with actual moments that I think are missing or need to be punched up. If...

Re: Black List question - Nicholl placement

I think what you are hinting to is right. That is a great story, a script that the market deemed worthy of 1 million dollars ( I said that with the Dr. Evil pinky to the corner of the mouth). ...

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

Joe, when people debate two sides of a coin, they challenge each other. What criticism are you talking about? When somebody tells me I have no idea what I am talking about and I respond?

So if...

Calm down, Jeff. I expect to do a good job with the pilot. I challenged you Jeff. I wouldn't entertain a challenge with someone where I thought I had no shot. I expect you to take this very...

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

I guess I'll just trust that there are no PMs going on saying which notes are which so one set can just get tanked with criticism. Cause I know how much people are at least rooting for me to have a...

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

So we are posting under our usernames? People won't be impartial. Is there a way to have a third party post both sets of notes?

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

I had my kids choose a number between 1 and 3 and they chose 3. I guess I should've seen that coming since they are triplets.

Can we do it after the new year? I have acfeatureclevth script and a...

I have some requirements too. After all is said and done, I want to read your notes on the piece you can read mine if you want to.
