Re: Producer from Hell

I had the same problem. I contacted IMDb, to no avail. Eventually I just logged in and deleted that project from my page and removed my credit, so it still exists on IMDb but my name isn't anywhere...

Re: Remakes

I'll be the one contrarian voice here.

Re: Where to stay in L.A.?

Was the coffee shop Bricks & Scones? Probably my favorite place to write in LA. That and the Bourgeois Pig in Franklin Village.

Sorry about that bad experience on AirBnB. Yes, it can definitely be a...

Final Draft issue

When I try to save a new Final Draft document, I'm unable -- I get an "Invalid File Name" prompt. There are no special characters, no spaces, etc. in the name though.

Re: Where to stay in L.A.?

Before I moved to LA (3 days ago!) I used Airbnb for every trip out here. It's a great way to save money. I'd stick with Hollywood, for convenience. Or, if you want quaint, there are some places in...

Reviving an old thread, guys.
