Re: Option Question

They either exercise the option and buy it, or pay you for the extension. Have you talked to them about their intentions? Thats what Id do, or... have my reps do.

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

I second this reply. But... for me? Give me a contract I can sign and PAY me? Then you can have an FDX version. Before that? Nope.

Re: Preventing unwanted changes in rewrites

You can ask for anything in a contract. But they won't give you this one. Ever. They need complete control or they'll walk away, even if they love your script.

Like you've heard here, the lawyers...

Re: Not responding back after reading script

The Silent No was born out of the multitude of desperate writers who can't take NO for an answer. Producers and reps are fed up with writers who think an emailed pass is an invitation to open a...

Re: Can I do anything with a high placement in a screenwriting competition?

Austin is a screenwriter centric film festival. I know people who have semi-finaled and gotten reads and reps. Plus, I've had both reps and producers say they pay attention to it. Producers and reps...

Re: Can I do anything with a high placement in a screenwriting competition?

The Nicholl. Austin. Those are the 2 that have the most meaning. Then Tracking Board, PAGE, maybe Screencraft. It's not the amount of entries but the respect of producers and reps.

Re: Can I do anything with a high placement in a screenwriting competition?

As others have said, producers and reps don't care if it's not The Nicholl or Austin. If you semi or final in either, you can get read requests... otherwise, good for you for some validation...

Re: Notes from Producers

This is the answer and how I feel too.... Without a rock solid agreement that the notes belong to you, you shouldn't show the revised script to anyone, just your original. I have a friend who is...

Re: A Page-One Rewrite for Free??

Personally, I've never known a writer who did one of these freebies that got a damn thing out of it. Unless producers have skin in the game, the writer means nothing because they invested nothing in...

Re: Bob Saenz's new book

Thanks for setting me straight. Had no idea. I know friends are bailing because of taxes. That'll teach me to assume.

Re: PSA To All Film Schools Students and Graduates

Nope. I'm surprised it's 30 grand when there are hundreds who'd do it for free to get a foot in the door. Nobody owes anyone anything, especially college graduates. If you want to make more money, go...

Re: How Many Members On Done Deal Are Writer - Directors?

Re: Feature or TV
