Re: What would you do here?

Thank you, both, for the last two comments.

I've pretty much put this aside. People are whacked and there is no getting around it.

The script has a copyright and WGA registration, so that's it. I...

Re: What would you do here?

You know...I don't know. It's just one of those conundrums that leaves you scratching your head. That's all. I still believe in courtesy. Yeah. Idiotic, I know. If he changed his mind, or whatever,...

Re: What would you do here?

Not really. I was taken aback, as well. He offered, and I said okay. Maybe because he's also an "actor?" I suppose I should have asked why he thought it was necessary. Live and learn.

Re: What would you do here?

Thanks for your comment, and yeah, I wish you could punch him in the face, too.

He reached out to ME on a FB filmmakers group, after I posted about my female-driven thriller.

He asked if we could...

Re: What would you do here?

It is WGA registered and copyrighted, guys.

That's the good news. The bad news is, my text to the guy bounced back.

Re: What would you do here?

I forgot to say the the script is WGA registered. It may be copyrighted, as well. I'd actually have to check. Thanks.

Re: What would you do here?

Hi. Thanks for your comment. It was optioned at one time, but the option ran out and the rights reverted back to me. So there's another paper trail, I guess, with all the emails, then.

I actually...

What would you do here?

Hi guys,

So a guy on one of my FB filmmakers groups reached out to me regarding one of my projects. He's an actor, mainly, but also produces. From what I could tell, he has dough.

We had a phone...

Re: Me or the WGA?

I know my log lines are solid, and Iíve been getting crickets. That said, just to keep my mojo going, I write regularly for Medium.com. Working on a new script but I feel like, meh. Bad time to be...

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

I get it, guys. Iím not angry. Not at you, anyway. Most likely, I will be moving on and going it alone as I have no problem doing that. If I find someone, great. Iím still my own best promoter....

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

If Docgonzo had a point, he might have presented in a way that wasn't offensive. But, that said, that would probably take too much thought.
Thanks for your comment.

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

Sorry for the typos but I was on my phone and pissed.

Yes. It escalated quickly because, in the many years I've been on this site, the snarky a$$holes have multiplied like cockroaches. Some people...

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

This is how I take it: Iím not. Iíve been at this for over 15 years and am not seeking sympathy, as you do charmingly stated. I have every right to be pissed off. Iíve been a finalist in several...

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

That's truly awesome.

In my case, there wasn't the slightest indication of "serious personal issues" with my rep.

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

If youíre as eloquent in your screenplays as you are in your posts, youíre doing nothing wrong.

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

Yes. I'm considering doing just that. Her comment was that she was "distracted" by family. I happen to know that she's a new grandma and I suspect that's where the "distraction" lies. This is so...

Re: Had a bit to drink. Bear with me.

Yes. I like her. That said, I was expecting her to be pitching for me all these months. No death in the family. Nothing like that.

I'm extremely disappointed. Again.

Had a bit to drink. Bear with me

Greetings, everyone.

So. Today, I realized that I haven't heard from my manager in weeks and weeks and weeks, regarding a project she loves and is/was pitching.

I say "was," because I sent her an...

Burning Question

Hey, all. Hope you're well.

What I need to know: If a script has been previously optioned, does that make it less attractive to producers? Or, perhaps, more so?

I have a call with a development...
