Re: Nicholl 2020

Thank you so much for sharing all this information. I wish other competitions were as open as yours. I recently placed in a couple of the other biggish competitions and asked them about their...

Re: 532 Scripted TV Shows for 2019

Hi Lisa. I'm not sure if you ever found this answer, but on IMDb I did a search for "2019" and limited it to TV, and a list of 200 tv shows came back. I think these are the ones that were new to...

Re: What would be a reasonable sum of money to offer in this situation?

OP asked a straight question concerning money amounts, not for us to 'fix' his story or motivations. I have no idea what the story is about. All I know is that in reality it is extremely easy to find...

Re: What would be a reasonable sum of money to offer in this situation?

It wouldn't be that much money. The book Freakonomics actually went into numbers. Here's an excerpt from the original article:

Why Drug Dealers Live With Their Moms?

Re: Page 2020

Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I used their online contact form. In any case I'm tempted to just submit my pilot to meet the deadline and sort it out with them later.

Re: Page 2020

I tried to submit a 30-page action/sci-fi pilot. For pilots they only have two categories: Drama and Comedy. I obviously thought drama would be more appropriate, but the system wouldn't let me submit...

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad

I think there are two distinct stages in a writer's career. When you are a known entity, then yes, the 'newness' factor plays a large part. But when you are completely unrepped and unvetted, no one...

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad

The company Red Ampersand purchased the Tracking Board not too long ago. They let it be run independently from their other companies, but they do integrate the submission system with one of their...

Re: Brandon Blake, www.filmtvlaw.com

It's okay :) It would have been too funny if I actually landed a referral through this board. Like I mentioned above, I do have one draft of a contract, am waiting for a second draft, and have...

Re: Brandon Blake, www.filmtvlaw.com

Yes! Exactly like what I'm going through. Thank you so much for sharing. The best lawyer I found so far, offered to take me on at a reduced rate. He was very honest about the 5% and how it didn't...

Re: Brandon Blake, www.filmtvlaw.com

Well, I stand corrected. This is a question to either finalact4 or docgonzo. Would it be possible to get a referral to your attorney? I've approached 4 entertainment lawyers (two through writer...

Re: Writer/Directors and the WGA

Congratulations on getting to the stage of directing your own film. Regarding your question, I think it's better if you ask someone at the WGA. From my limited experience of interacting with them,...

Re: Brandon Blake, www.filmtvlaw.com

I would like to help clarify a couple things.

1. THE 5% MISCONCEPTION - I often see that people will unilaterally say that all entertainment lawyers charge this, and if they deviate from this,...

Re: Lawyers?

That sounds about right. BTW, if you're at the submitting stage, then you really don't need a lawyer at this time. You could wait until someone wants to either hire you or purchase something from...

Re: Lawyers?

When choosing a lawyer I would say it all depends on what career stage you're in and what exactly you need representation for. Is this for a specific deal or hire? Is it a WGA signatory contract or...

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad

Thanks! BTW, It was Tracker. I love this kind of Sci-Fi movie. I really hope it gets made. I think you've mentioned on here that you were very close at least on one occasion.

Re: What's the difference?

I think the Universal Writers fellowship is among the highest paid. It pays in the 70K range for one year. You write 2 screenplays (which you own) during that year, with the help of their mentors....
