Re: Can WGA Writers Work for Non-Signatories Outside US?

Will; that is correct. I have confirmed with the WGA that I can become a current member but I haven’t filled out my application yet... not to mention shelling out $2500 ;)
The reason I would...

Re: Can WGA Writers Work for Non-Signatories Outside US?

Are they supposed to sign the COC when they’re not ATA?

This whole thing is messed up. That’s why I was trying to find the script notes episode because I believe Craig Mazin had some level headed...

Re: Can WGA Writers Work for Non-Signatories Outside US?

Thank you, Travis. Not a response I was hoping for ;)

Still, I can't find the Scriptnotes episode where they talked about that. I remember that the gist was there is a large group of WGA writers...

Re: Anyone outside America been read by CAA?

Maybe you should think about the long game. I'm not sure running to CAA right now is going to make you a lot of friends once you break in.

Re: Can WGA Writers Work for Non-Signatories Outside US?

Thank you, Will!

And yet, I've found something like that in the MBA:

ARTICLE 5 - GEOGRAPHICAL APPLICATION OF THIS BASIC AGREEMENT (GENERAL)

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained...

Can WGA Writers Work for Non-Signatories Outside US?

I remember listening to a Scriptnotes episode about WGA writers writing for international productions outside of WGA auspices and WGA trying to do something about that.

Do you know how does that...

Re: Game Of Thrones

I'll gladly partake in this interesting discussion.

I love it when people say how other people would do Game of Thrones better than those two dudes who only did Game of Thrones.

Re: Pilot vs Novel and the Author's Rights

Jake: maybe that’s the correct order to do it, then? First the pilot and in lack of sale, the novel?
I don’t think anyone in HW would touch a novel that failed to sell well.

Re: Black list top lists

This is my personal feeling but I would slowly start withdrawing attention from the Black List website altogether. You will know them by their fruits. How many years it's been? How many outsiders...

Re: DDP Hits 30,000

The forum may be damn quiet these days but believe me the quality of advice and information here is unparalleled. I've tried asking the same question here and on reddit. DDP is where it's at.

Re: Pilot vs Novel and the Author's Rights

I'm not necessarily NOT asking for advice, too ;) I have a steady income from writing for others but I'm getting tired of being basically a pushover of the industry. Well, maybe I'm overreacting, but...

Re: Pilot vs Novel and the Author's Rights

Interesting. The smartest course of action would then be to publish a novel first and if it doesn't become a bestseller turn it into a spec pilot or script. But would anyone want it then?

It wasn't...

Pilot vs Novel and the Author's Rights

Is it always the case that the situation of a TV show creator is much worse than that of a novelist?

JK Rowling has tremendous creative control over everything Harry Potter. Max Landis got booted...

Re: Final Draft 11 - Beat Board PDF

Hmmm, that's correct! Fade In seems to render non-latin fonts really well. I see a lot of writers use it, according to its website! With it being able to serve multiple formats that's really a...

Re: Final Draft 11 - Beat Board PDF

Comic and Will -- thank you!
I'm considering Final Draft because non-latin characters are finally displayed & printed well. I can't believe it took them this long.

I feel you and I share your problems. After x-teen meetings with various producers and execs I've found there are several points to keep in mind. Those work for me, at least.

Re: WGA "No Writing Left Behind" campaign

To be honest, though, I much prefer presenting my ideas on paper than in person. I'm a writer not an actor. All that angst and frenzy surrounding pitches in person are a nightmare.

Thank you, Crayon, that's exactly what I'm going to try, following the Sarah Connor bit. Her scenes are so emotional and our guy is maybe too stoical. He's imprisoned alone in his castle, just with...
