Re: Franklin Leonard

I don't want to speak for docgonzo but in reading your previous post, I assumed you were talking about blind email queries. I have no stats to back this up whatsoever, just my own personal experience...

Re: Avengers End Game

Seriously. The Hollywood Arclight was showing like 4 or 5 movies total this weekend. I've never seen such a thing. I tried to go see Under The Silver Lake at the Los Feliz 3 and it was sold out 15...

Re: Not in the WGA – Do I still fire my agent?

I'm in the same boat and have been wondering what the expected protocol for us would be. Good to know.

Re: Pet Semetary

I saw it last night and unfortunately left disappointed. It works well enough as a horror movie -- and I actually liked the BIG CHANGE in the second half, I thought that made for a more interesting...

Re: Pet Semetary

Ha! Chalk it up to vastly different reactions to King as a kid. My first of his was The Shining when I was in fifth grade and over the following, oh, seven or eight years, I pretty much devoured...

Re: Pet Semetary

I'm excited for this one! Was morbidly fascinated by the original as a kid and the book remains one of my favorites. Definitely going to try to see it this weekend.

Re: Us

I enjoyed it, for the most part. I do want to see it again, as this was the most excited I'd been for a movie in probably 8 or 9 years, so I feel like I do need another viewing free of the baggage of...

Re: Amateur move?

I went on a general (this was years ago) with an exec I'd previously met with once before and had a great rapport with. It was again a super friendly meeting that I thought went extremely well but...

Re: Welcome Home - My First Produced Movie!

Thanks guys!

Don't worry UpandComing... there were definitely drinks had this weekend. Maybe more than three.

Welcome Home - My First Produced Movie!

This may constitute shameless self-promotion... but DDP has been a part of my life ever since I started this screenwriting journey nearly ten years ago. Even though I've only been a sometimes-poster,...

Re: The waiting is the hardest part...

Like you said, I'm sure each case is its own beast... but I don't think it should take that long for one actor. I'm assuming this is the actor reading simply to decide whether to attach himself,...

Re: To Live In LA

Ain't that the truth. I just had to move last month after being in the same apartment for three and a half years and was stunned by what had happened to the market just in that short time span. I'm a...

Re: When your script doesn’t go out wide

I've had three specs hit the town -- two went wide and the third was a bit more targeted. It still wound up going to a decent number of producers but it was a much more gradual process. I'd say the...

Re: BlacKKKlansman

1000%

The "review" is simply a personal attack on Spike Lee. The irony, of course, is that the "reviewer" spends half the article espousing his belief that Spike Lee is the racist one. Also, compare...

Re: BlacKKKlansman

You've yet to put forth what, exactly, this opposing view is that's worthy of debate. You've mentioned the movie's "political message" several times now. In your opinion, what is the other side of...

Re: BlacKKKlansman

I mean. The movie is “overtly political” in condemning racism and white nationalism in the form of the KKK. Its “political message” could be boiled down to exposing how horrific and ridiculous the...

Re: BlacKKKlansman

Man, I couldn't agree more. I just wasted five minutes reading half that "review" -- it was so much worse than I imagined. I can safely say I never thought I'd run into peddling of such BS at DDP. I...

Re: Hereditary

I saw this on Friday and absolutely loved it. It has some of the best horror imagery I've seen in a long, long time and Toni Collette gives an incredible performance. I know it's been rather...

Re: A Bit Of A Vent. Sorry.

I most certainly sympathize as well, as someone who's had not one but TWO managers decide to leave the business. Both happened very early in my career. It's not a good feeling. It sucks.

But I also...

Re: Getting an advisor on board

I had the same instinct as Jeff. I'd just reach out and ask if you can talk to him. If he writes in the non-fiction space, I'd assume he understands and has been in your shoes himself.

Re: Unknown Managers

No worries. And I get that it's an uphill battle, all the time. If you're hoping to find a manager that's just starting out, you'd want to target young guys who are hungry and hustling... but also...
