Re: NBC Writers on the Verge emails went out

The second samples were original pilots. Something to think about for next year.

Re: The Screenplay Mechanic (EvilRbt)

Absolutely, Will.

Cyfress, I'll send you a DM if you'd like to continue to discuss.

Re: The Screenplay Mechanic (EvilRbt)

That's good because it will happen if you keep going after Screenplay Mechanic.

The fact is, the people who have brought material to him, and actually take the time to listen to what he has to say...

Looks like they started interviews last week. Oh well. Get 'em next year!

Re: NBC Writers on the Verge emails went out

I am (or was) a quarterfinalist and haven't heard anything either. Hoping they're still making calls, but starting to feel like we're just out.

When she asked for the release for the second sample...

Re: Blacklist's "Scriptbook"

I guess I just see this as similar to the "why I hate contests" thread.

Re: Blacklist's "Scriptbook"

I think here's where we differ.

Knock the service all you want. Shout it from the rooftops. I wrote a blog post about the red I saw when Screencraft rolled out that copyright service. But at the...

Re: The Tracking Board / Rock Shaink Jr. / Launch Pad Contest

Also, Tracking Board itself is (exactly what it sounds like) a tracking site for industry news, deals, reviews, market, etc. The Launch Pad competition was set up secondary to that. I was following...

Re: The Tracking Board / Rock Shaink Jr. / Launch Pad Contest

Having been a finalist in two 2016 Tracking Board competitions, I have emailed and talked with Chris many times. Tracking Board is absolutely legit, and I've had meetings all over town because of...

Re: Blacklist's "Scriptbook"

People seem to feel like it's a badge of honor to be down on the Black List. I've personally gotten calls off the site (albeit a few years ago), but as omjs stated, it's purely a marketing service....

Re: 2017 Launch Pad Pilot Competition

I think it depends on what you're looking for. PAGE is a great competition and placing high could open doors, however Tracking Board actually attempts to make those connections for you. You still...

Re: Why I Hate Script Contests And So Should You

I'm gonna agree here. I've had multiple placements and it's definitely given me traction. Contests are legit. If you're not getting anything out of them, you're not entering/placing in the right...

Re: 2017 Launch Pad Pilot Competition

I was one of the Top 10 last year, and it was a really great experience. If you get into the Top 75 they really push your work hard. I got around 4 meetings before the top 10 was even announced....

Re: Which script reader is best for your buck?

More votes for Drew!

His points are spot on and he's super flexible. I'm sure I was driving him crazy with scheduling on a script my partner and I are still working on but he was completely...

Re: Scriptapalooza

I was surprised by the lack of talk too. Though I was lucky enough to make the QF in both, it sounds like quite a few Page QFs did not make the cutoff in Scriptapalooza.

Story Expo

I'm heading to the conference and just got an email about the Pitching Room.

Anyone have experience with the conference and/or pitching room they'd be willing to share? Good experience?

Re: Converting Feature to Pilot

When I converted one of my features into a pilot, I broke it off after Act 1, around page 30, and used the extra space to expand the different storylines. Since you are able to dig deeper in a show...

Re: Best hostage movies?

The last Rambo was like that. I know Argo was already mentioned in your original post but it fits the bill.

Would Tropic Thunder work?

Re: Movies that passed the Bechdel test made more money

Very technically. They're talking about Aunt Emma, and there's another incidental exchange after he crashes the car. I suppose you could make the argument that the conversation has to be substantive.
