Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

I'm having no issues finding the usual stuff. Except for the Mandarin orange chicken at Trader Joe's. I can't ever find it now!

Re: LA Area Code...

Just so we're clear, Manhattan Beach is NOT an hour from LA. More like 15 mins from the westside (if traffic's okay, lol). I used to work in El Segundo, which is just north of MB, and the commute for...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Well, this is what happens when you elect a dumbf*ck game show host for president. Hopefully, it teaches us a lesson, but I doubt it.

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Really don't think this is the pandemic that brings about a Mad Max hellscape, so I'll pass on buying a gun, thank you.

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

I'm starting to see the effects in LA. School events are getting canceled. Traffic is getting better. Fewer people at the gym this morning. People are hoarding supplies. It's definitely starting to...

Re: Notes from Producers

I'm stuck on the first part where you mention it's a non-exclusive shopping agreement. By definition, a shopping agreement gives the producers exclusive control for X-amount of time. Either you're...

Re: A Page-One Rewrite for Free??

There's no use overthinking this situation, and no danger of burning bridges if you politely decline and move on. And I wouldn't help the guy find other writers, who might resent you if they get into...

Re: Even when you have reps...

Curious about your approach to this. I'm terrible at this part of the game. How do you go about reach out to stay in touch? A simple, "Hey, just checking in to say hi"? (not that simple, but you...

Re: What do people think of meetups?

Hemingway did blow his brains out with a shotgun, so I don't think the lonely writing life is all it's cracked up to be.

I've never done the meetup thing, however it is important to find a group of...

Re: What's the scene like now?

You need a package with these places. I've had a few scripts go into Netflix with producers attached (no deals) and regardless of how much they said they loved the script, it was the same thing:...

The Witcher

Anybody watching this? I'm about five episodes in and having a blast with it. It' starts off a bit on the cheesy side, but it's incredibly entertaining. I love the tongue-and-cheek tone, and Henry...

Re: Mandalorian...oh no he didn't!!

I haven't seen the last episode yet, but up to now I've been profoundly underwhelmed. It's meandering, uninspired, and filled with terrible dialogue. I really wanted to love this, and I was into it...

Re: If you have a manager and attorney, do you absolutely need an agent?

Second this. Character driven with a strong hook is a much better way to go.

Re: Contest v.s Query Letters

Being a finalist in certain contests will get you reads from legit managers and you might not have to query. I'm talking about trackingb and tracking board. Both have judges panels made up of...

Re: New York Is Better Than LA

Native east coaster living in LA here. NYC is fun to visit, but I'd never want to live there. People are crazy. Same is true in LA, of course, but at least here their nuttiness is entertaining. New...

Re: Streaming Services - New Ops for MOW Projects

I've had several scripts go into Netflix, and regardless of whether or not they loved it, it was always the same response: they need a package to move the needle.

Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

I missed the part about the creative execs. So yeah, like Satriales said. They're throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping something sticks.

Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

It could mean they're looking for some IP for you to adapt for free, or maybe they're looking for ideas from you. Or both.

Doesn't seem they want to take you on as a client. They want you to write...

Re: Watchmen

I know nothing about the comics or the movie, so taking this on its own merits, I thought it was f*cking great.
