Re: Another Producer/Option Question

Very Critical..

Make sure the option stipulates that the producer is signatory
to the Writers Guild so you get credit for any sale and production.
If he isn't, and doesn't, you don't get the credits...

Michael. I also realize that a certain number of spec sales never get reported but many of the people on this board, like you said, are from out of town and don't have the ability to ask anyone...

Re: Need some advice

My 1 cents worth.

If you have a medium sized firm, and a big firm, everything else being pretty much equal, I'd go with the larger firm. How do you know which is larger?
One way is sales. Here are...

Re: Rain Management Group and Artist International

I think I can take idiocy to an all new level.
First of all, when I was a reader, the odds of finding an
editable script were about 2/250 which meant I had to
read all of the bottom of the pile to...

Re: Is it "bad" to submit script to Nicolls if you're going out with it?

M.
Depends on how it's played--and that depends on whether a rep is
involved. Scripts that have not made it in major competitions have
been sold for big $$$. A Quarter-Final standing, while it is...

Re: Managers and Development

Dude.
Well, first of all, it doesn't make much sense for a rep to go to all of the trouble to sign someone (or just take them on) and then not put out their work.
It is possible the writer's project...

Re: Actor responding to query

Joe is absolutely right.
And if you mess around and try to authenticate the
actor, it could blow up in your face.
Why would anyone at the agency try to pretend
they are the actor?

No doubt the new CEO and PRES will be a determining factor

there are other mitigating factors. Your BIG NAME may help

If you have a great agent, why would you approach WM and
not your agent?
If you're saying you have to attach talent BEFORE you take it

Re: A-List Stars Flailing at the Box Office

If the blame is to fall on anything in Hollywood,

There is no right or wrong route.
You should be trying everything.

way, but it can just as easily work the other way.
