Re: Shaving pages

I would never ever game the margins or fonts or anything like that.

Basically I go through the script and look for any Action or Dialogue lines that run over into the next line by ONE or TWO words....

Re: Young Guns II proper HD Blu-ray Remaster?

I realize it's unlikely that the OP will see this, but maybe there are other fans of Young Guns 2 here who will give thanks that it has finally been released in HD (as of yesterday).

Re: Crazy Rich Asians

I'm sure the (mostly white, mostly male) owners of the studios will continue to make more money by fleecing writers and other artists out of their salaries, profit shares, residuals and copyrights...

Re: Harlan Ellison

Harlan has always been my spiritual godfather (so it's no wonder I haven't broken in yet).

He would have been 10x more successful if he had become a Hollywood sycophant instead of always (and to...

Thank goodness the Blacklist helped this young unknown break in!

Re: Wrinkle in Time

Because the executives are terrified of anything that's not pre-branded. Original ideas are considered a liability at this point (I don't believe they should be, but my opinions don't really matter)....

Re: Wrinkle in Time

These types of comments are uncivil and do more to hurt progress than anything else.

I think the idea that anyone is 'threatened' by the incremental changes taking place in Hollywood is largely an...

Re: It

Okay, so I finally got around to seeing this (I cut the cable cord a long time ago and still do the Netflix dvds by mail thing-- which is still one of the greatest bargains of all time, btw).

Re: Oscars

Just a quick observation about these guys (and obviously Cameron and Lucas).

Almost every single one of them has a pretty great story about the struggle they went through to get their first films...

Re: Oscars

Everything has changed.

The mid-budget dramatic feature no longer exists.

Streaming is doing nothing. Netflix is making Adam Sandler movies and Max Landis nonsense (and also, in my opinion,...

Re: Oscars

I spend about 99.999% of my time on the internet biting my tongue, so I can relate.

But there's a pretty good analogy to be drawn between Hollywood and the music business, in the sense that the...

Re: Black List Prep - Script Exchange

I like the concept. Road trips almost always work. Tougher to pull off as a period piece, though. I'm assuming it's integral to the plot? Obviously a single mother in the 70's was a bigger deal, but...

Re: Black List Prep - Script Exchange

Oh, and I don't have any scripts to exchange right now, but if you put a logline and the first 5 pages up here, someone (maybe even me) might be able to tell you if you're in the ballpark.

Re: Black List Prep - Script Exchange

I guess a better way to explain it might be that if you buy 1 review and it comes back an 8, you won't have to spend any more than that initial $100 (for a few months anyway... A single score of 8 or...

Re: Black List Prep - Script Exchange

Back in my day, when we finished a screenplay it was not uncommon to spend $300 on photocopies, postage and SASE for query replies. It wasn't considered a big deal or a hardship. It was just the way...

Re: Lessons from 25 Black List Scripts

This is x 10 for comedy.

I have read a bunch of BL comedy scripts from the last 2 years, and I'm not going to name names and slag someone else's unproduced work (I will, however name underwhelming...

Re: Black List Website Postmortem

I just wanted to update and say that my script actually did advance to the top 75 of the TB Launchpad Feature contest.

It was, tragically, eliminated today when they cut the list down to 50, but I...

Re: Black List Website Postmortem

I've been doing this a long, long time, and I have never entered a contest before. I always felt like the entrance fees were way too high for the value / potential payoff.

When a writer has a script hosted (with reviews) they can choose to display a graph on their script page representing the range of scores that they got.

It doesn't really matter how many scores you...

Re: Black List Website Postmortem

Oh, for sure I'm not worried at all about this script. It might take a year or 3 or 10, but this script will see production.

At least 20% of the people who read it either wrote a great BL review or...

Re: Black List Website Postmortem

I'm in the exact same position. I've been hosted for free since October (when I got the 8) but my two free reads came back as 5s, which knocked me off the toplist, and so no one has looked at it...
