Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

Half-hour comedy multi-cam. Success, right? I'm on my way!


Didn't get shot, my agent left the business, the exec moved to non-scripted, the prodco that brought me in split up.


Square one!

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

Do you mean few and far between for new writers? Because dozens of pilots sell every year.

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

I sold an original pilot, years ago. I was paid a tiny bit more than WGA minimum. I was told that was the norm for a first-timer. If the pilot had been shot (it wasn't) I would have gotten another...

Re: Anybody Know Any Agents or Managers Open to Acquiring New Clients?

You don't need an agent. You can't get one. You need heat, then the agents will come to you.

Re: Deadlines and stimulants

Yeah, I'm a little nonplussed too.



I write 3-4 pages an hour. More, if they're dialogue heavy.

Re: Four Thoughts on Screenwriting

1. Starting a line of dialogue with "Well," is almost always unnecessary. Get rid of it.

2. Write the thing that scares you the most.

3. What 'Boog said.

4. You only fail if you give up....

Disorderly conduct. Assault, if anything hit the cop and she was in the mood to stick it to you.

Greg,
How does the current number of entries stack up against previous years?

Re: Nicholl semi's+ and what they went on to

I think you might be right, in the case of certain polarizing genres or styles.

Ask a group of people what they think of "The Big Lebowski". You'll probably get a range of responses from 'brilliant'...

Re: Nicholl semi's+ and what they went on to

I expect that if you took a finalist (or even winning) script and gave it to 100 readers, at least one or two would give it a score of less than 60. Taste is subjective and it's entirely possible...

Re: LA meetings

If you don't have a smart phone, get a car with GPS.

Bring money because assistants sometimes don't give you enough validation stickers.

Breath mints.

Re: Double spacing after periods

Actually, you have it backwards:

Re: The Black List from a user perspective

I'm extremely dissapointed with this service, and wouldn't recommend it. In one month, my two scripts have gotten a total of 11 impressions and 4 downloads (2 of which were presumably by the paid...

Re: Black List founder Franklin Leonard answers your questions about the Black List

How does a script receive a new download without getting a new impression? It's happened to me twice now. Are impressions like unique page views as opposed to straight up...

Re: Black List founder Franklin Leonard answers your questions about the Black List

Franklin,
I'd like to suggest you make "Previous Awards" a search field. Industry pros might be interested to find, say, Nicholl-placing scripts.

Re: Black List founder Franklin Leonard answers your questions about the Black List

All the extreme negative reviews posted here have the same misspelling of "strengths" and the same repetition of "genre" instead of "pages". The positive reviews don't.

Could all these reviews be...

Re: The New Black List

For those who have submitted scripts, I'd be interested to hear what kind of traffic (impressions, downloads) they've gotten so far.
