Re: Query Style

I use "Genre -- TITLE" in the subject line.

"Dear ____"

"Logline: ____"

"Pitch: ____"

"Thank you!"

Re: DoD at agency wants to develop my script. Advice?

Thanks Deb, I try not to get my hopes up with this kind of stuff but it'll be nice to finally sit down face to face with someone in the industry who respects my work.

In the meantime I'll try not to...

Re: DoD at agency wants to develop my script. Advice?

Thanks Ronald. I was searching around on the boards and found people saying just that, and it makes a lot of sense.

He really seemed to like it so I'm hoping the notes aren't too radical. Meeting...

Re: DoD at agency wants to develop my script. Advice?

I should have been more clear. The guy in question is the Director of Development at Bohemia Group - which from what I can glean online is a management/production company, although in some places...

DoD at agency wants to develop my script. Advice?

So he read and said he'd like to take on the project(!!), but he thinks it will take some significant development to get to a point to sell. This is the first time I've gotten anything more than a...

Anyone have experience with Bohemia Group?

I got a read request from Justin Ross, their director of production and development.

Couldn't find much info on them by searching around, but looks like they mostly rep actors. Do they have much of...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

And no response all day, now past their stated closing time. Guess I'll have to wait through the weekend now.

This is getting comical.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

So I got an email this Monday saying my replacement eval was ready to view. Went to the site, and it says "No pending evaluations."

I email support, don't get a response until Wednesday after I send...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Noted. :D

I did make revisions based on the review, some of it was helpful. But literally his only comments about my dreadfully low scoring characters/plot were just outright false and could only...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Yeah I fully agree with you, and the first review did have a few helpful things. But the only comments on my characters and plot, that he scored me a 2 and 3 on, were completely inaccurate based on...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Why would anyone count on the BL for notes? I want a half-way intelligent person to read my script, because I feel like it deserves a high score.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Finally was given an additional evaluation. Faith potentially restored in the BL's credibility. Hopefully my next reviewer has an adequate level of reading comprehension.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

That is the heart of my critique. There is literally no possible way the reader shouldn't have seen the connection. It is stated directly by the protagonist on multiple occasions, stated directly in...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

The death of the grandmother is an external event. His internal struggle is a result of that, but the death sets the story in motion.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

I already used the "start fresh" option on the site, so I can't access the full thing. The reviewer did make some valid points about an unnecessary flashback scene and some overly expository...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

So my review came back a 4/10, with a 2 and 3 respectively for Plot and Character.

Then I see the reviewer referring to my "central conflict" of the story, and he completely missed it. He...

Re: My first Blacklist review - 8

Finally got my reader download after emailing support. Now on the "evaluation in progress" stage.

I wouldn't imagine it'll take much longer, considering the lengths of the evals posted.

Re: My first Blacklist review - 8

Two weeks now after being assigned to a reader, no download.

How are readers notified?

Is there a time limit or can they basically procrastinate it up until the day before my hosting runs out?

Re: My first Blacklist review - 8

Damn, 5 is tough. Closure has to be relieving though. Have you garnered any attention for the script outside of the BL with your queries?

My reader seems to be really confused with how this whole...

Got a reply from one of their managers, saying they're not the best fit for me at the moment, but to keep them updated with any successes I have.
