Re: Is this too desperate or stalker-ish?

Please don't do that to them. Seriously. That isn't how this works, not because there are arbitrary rules, but because this kind of thing can make people really uncomfortable.

Re: Working writer who still has a full time job problem

Re: Types of careers

Re: Transitions: Is there such a thing as CUT TO WHITE?

Yes. You can write CUT TO WHITE. Or red or purple or whatever your story requires. As long as it's clear, you're fine.

Re: Meeting with Japanese producers?

In my experience, no one expected perfect etiquette, but I accepted their business cards with both hands, didn't stack them on the table, and rather than slowly, I spoke concisely. Short sentences...

Re: Pitching an actor

Maybe what you've been asked in your job and what you're asking here aren't really comparable. Nah, you're probably right - you just have better values than everyone in LA.

Re: Is rewriting actually "writing"?

Rewriting for development or production is not, in my experience, anything like editing. It's an all encompassing term that can mean anything from starting over on page 1 to dialog tweaks. It isn't...

Ha, no. I still won't read your spec, pal. But keep pushing, keep hustling. Maybe someday your resume will catch up with your posts.

I've already, you know, judged you, but thanks for the offer of reading some crank's unsolicited pages. Pass.

Yep, yep, and yep. Writing two things for studios right now. But back on topic - you met Forest Whitaker once? Wow.

Re: Objectification of women

I don't think it's your opinion, but more that you come across as a massive tool in every discussion. Also every piece of writing you've posted has been terrible. Like that dialog. But please,...

Re: Dumb Idea?

Honestly, no one will care. No one is going to mount a forensic investigation to uncover your true identity. Unless you're Scott Frank. I'm guessing you're not.

But yeah, "it's too dark" is a...

Re: Dumb Idea?

Every time you post, I want to watch that Kevin Roberts sketch on SNL.

No, the blacklist isn't nonsense, and if you want to put a dead script up under a different name, there probably isn't much...

But if an assistant is setting meetings...
