Re: Your take on the long take....

Woody Allen likes to do long, carefully choreographed takes. I read somewhere that he spends hours setting them up, then boom, gets it done in one take. Personally, I love them.

Re: Is there a way to save a treasured thread?

Damn !! I just saved a million threads without EVER noticing that function !!

Regardless, I just save any web page I want to keep as a PDF document, so that's an additional option (at least with Mac...

Re: Saving your private messages

Thanks Centos. I went and did that. As far as I can tell, you still can only go back 500 posts if you do a general search of "posts by." However, if you choose a specific forum, like "screenwriting,"...

Re: Saving your private messages

Too bad there's no way to download all our posts... actually I don't even think there's a way to find them so that you can copy them if you want. The "posts by" function only goes so far back in time...

Re: Passengers

I finally caught this and I really enjoyed it. It's been a long while since I've "really enjoyed" a film. There was enough space stuff, enough romance, and enough suspense to keep me entertained and...

Re: Agents and Managers - HELP PLEEEASE!!!!

Well I did say it wasn't impossible, just probably harder since some scripts are just tougher sells. But even in the harder-to-make-bank-on category, there are likely some genres that will fare...

Re: Agents and Managers - HELP PLEEEASE!!!!

What people fail to also say is that in most cases, that sentence is incomplete. It should be "write something great AND marketable that reps think they have a real shot at selling!!"

Re: Experience with the Blcklst and first evaluation

Fvck that. Some of the most powerful films I've ever seen were small, character-driven pieces. I just watched MANCHESTER BY THE SEA last night and it blew me away. First film in a very long time that...

Re: Save Your Money

Clearly the right choice. It is super, super easy to get a major publishing house interested in your novel, selling 500 thousand copies of it to rave reviews and public adoration, which will then...

Re: R.I.P. Bill Paxton

Yeah, total shocker. I loved him in everything I saw him in. He stole every scene he was in in ALIENS and honestly, without his whiny character contributing comic relief and immensely quotable lines,...

Re: The Saga Continues........

Re: Films with Selfish Protagonists

Casablanca.

The whole "reject the call" then "accept the call" happens to a lot of protags, but for me personally, some of the most rewarding moments in cinema are when the secondary character (Han...

Re: Good scripts are hard to come by? Not according to Aaron Sorkin.

I think actors, actually, are a great analogy, and one that the general public can understand. Anybody who watches TV and movies can think of someone who... "Hey, whatever happened to that guy /...

Re: What is THE reason you continue to write?

I am also one of those writers who has at least temporarily given up on screenwriting to focus on prose. The joy of writing remains the same (to answer THE question in the thread), but to be...

Help with Sci-Fi term I can't think of

What's the term when a space shuttle docks / locks onto a space station? Is it one of those two or a third one that escapes me, like linkup or junction or something?

Re: Has anyone seen CATASTROPHE?

Um, I don't know, but don't you think it's more interesting when the woman is the more cynical one? I think it makes for better dynamics. After all, the Brits' idea of a compliment is, You silly cow,...

Has anyone seen CATASTROPHE?

I'm taking advantage of a free Amazon Prime month to catch up on a few things (or discover, actually, since there's so much content out there that I've never even heard of).

Anyway, it's a fresh...

Re: Aaron Sorkin Screenwriting Class

Honestly, I'm not typically one to fall for such things, but I think Sorkin is a brilliant writer, and paying a few bucks for his lectures seems money well spent to me. What would it cost to enroll...

Re: "He gets up and takes off running"

This is slightly off-topic, but what I've noticed giving notes here or for peeps who gave me scripts, is that there is sometimes failure to really describe the whole scene and everybody's reaction. A...

There's always the off chance that, if he's playing in a small town, he might actually get offended and insecure if nobody DOES hit him with a pitch :D:D

Re: Shorts...Why? How?

Generally speaking, a short is more a director's calling card than a writer's.
