Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

I don't how much packaging is going on with the hyphenates, but I know that feature writers have been disadvantaged the most business-wise during this action. TV writers tend to use their...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

Where it gets murky is with writer-producers and writer-directors. I've heard there are many hyphenates that are still being repped in their non-writer capacities by their former big4 agents.

Re: Can a script be produced more than once?

I would also recommend visiting the website of, and possibly giving a call to, The Pierce Law Firm (https://www.piercelawgroupllp.com/about). They rep comedians and writers mostly and are very...

Re: Can a script be produced more than once?

Firstly, congrats on writing something that resonates with people especially other artists.

Re: Exorcising Cliche

So the bottom line is that no pigs or demons were harmed in the making of the New Testament. That's so good to know. ;)

Re: 1917

Agreed, also production design was incredible.


This was my big problem. Also knowing what a bloodbath WWI was, and the 1600 British soldiers involved in an inconsequential half-battle was a drop in...

Re: How Does Being a Writer / Director Work?

Sometimes. Sometimes they write from a pitch or rewrite from an existing project. Sometimes they have writing partners like Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor. Often they have producing partners, or...

Re: 1917

I was completely underwhelmed, but I'll hold my review until after wide release.

Re: Opening scene

100% agree!


Agree for the most part. The only time I think it might work for me is if you are telling an alternate timeline/reality where your story diverges from history. Then if you use the stock...

Re: Want and Need in a Slasher movie

I'm not much of a slasher fan, but I would imagine those other goals come from either a B-Story or it's baked into the premise. In Halloween JLC's character is burdened with keeping the kids she is...

Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

Unless I'm missing something, where did they state they want you to write for free? If they were open to optioning or buying one of your scripts, I would assume that they said "with" and really meant...

Re: Best books on producing?

Not a book, but a really good resource is Todd Garner's Producer's Guide Podcast (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-producers-guide-todd-garner-hollywoods-elite/id1363232295).

Re: Continuing on after the workshop

Completely agree with you... in theory.

However, in this situation there are two other people that can, however dubiously, claim partial ownership and they have a whole room full of people that can...

Re: Continuing on after the workshop

Hard to say for me because we're talking about Australia and copyright in the commonwealth is a bit different than here in the US.

Re: Continuing on after the workshop

I feel your pain.

This is malpractice on the part of a writing teacher!!!

It's one thing to have participants pitch their own ideas with the understanding that the room can pitch ideas but those...

Re: Horror Movies

I'm a casual horror fan. I don't seek out horror films but usually enjoy those that contain some humor. I've never written one, but I've always heard they're easier to sell than the generic indie...

Re: Any WGA members produce own festival short?

Monique Sorgen produced her own short, Sorry, Not Sorry, that I think is still on the festival circuit. Not sure if she produced it under ULB or New Media.

Re: I did it my wayyyyyyyy

I'm a sitcom/half-hour guy and it's rare to write a bible for a half-hour even after the pitch is sold or the pilot green-lit. Hour length is another issue, and pitch decks and look-books are more...

Re: First ATA agency breaks ranks

Looking at IMDBpro Nagy only has agents and publicists. She has London agents and UTA here in the states. No manager is listed. If she fired her UTA agents per Guild directive, then she's most likely...
