Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Not unless they've requested the script to read. Then it's hit or miss.

I may never follow up, or I might after a month. If they're interested they'll let you know, if they're not, most often they...

Re: Not Writing the Types of Movies You Love

I write what I love to watch, sci-fi action thrillers in the $40-$100 million. That is my wheelhouse. Strengths in world-building, fast action and well paced plots.

I lean toward dark material with...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Re: Koepp Script Archive

Love Koepp.

For fun, read the opening of War of the Worlds and compare it to the final cut. I always find it so interesting to see them CUT OUT the stuff they write but don't really need in order...

Re: Offers to option quandary

I'd be focusing on the option with money on the table. That's me. Don't be lured by the FLASH of the name droppers in the second deal, that's what their relying on and they're taking advantage of...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

wtf does that even mean? :devil:

Every feature script is fake. Pseudonyms are used, so... what is it you think you're going to subvert? :bounce:

Wait, I know... you want Brian Glazer and Ron Howard...

Re: Offers to option quandary

That's a nice option, especially in this time. What is the percent on the budget, it matters. What is the budget? What's the ceiling and the floor. That matters, too, because it caps you. Make sure...

Re: Preventing unwanted changes in rewrites

I'm not talking about "tweaking," I'm talking about a rewrite draft, possibly even two steps, with executive notes to get a draft ready to send out to talent (director, actors) for packaging. This...

Re: Preventing unwanted changes in rewrites

This is so true.

Also, keep in mind that if they're paying for an option that you most likely will not be able to use any of the rewrites you do under that option, if it expires, without their...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

The "face time" you have is in a NON-WRITING capacity-- not sure what that means, but it is CLEARLY stated that way. There are no panel series' offered. You have under 10 weeks to complete the...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Not this time. The property is worth too much to me personally. I'd like it to be my first novel.

I will most likely submit a thriller, when that comes up.

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

If the selection is based on merit the best way to determine that is blind reading every screenplay. They can't do that, so they rely on filtering tactics to narrow the selection down to a more...

Re: Competition Entry Numbers?

If you're a good writer, you're not competing against the entire lot of applicants, you're competing against the top tier. Maybe 5% and lower.

I think there is probably an element of getting past...

Re: Protags: Likable? Relatable? Empathetic? Or is intriguing enough?

It's arrogant of you to expect that anyone is going to read, let alone address every point you think you make.

You may THINK you've made a key point, that doesn't mean you did. That's something YOU...

And the questions shouldnít be asked, imo. I donít care what they say is the reason for it.

Re: Protags: Likable? Relatable? Empathetic? Or is intriguing enough?

So, let me see if I have this right. Because I might not agree with you, I'm somehow wrong? Because I didn't like Breaking Bad?

Can you see how that sounds, maybe condescending, a bit arrogant?...
