Re: WeScreenplay Full Coverage package

I did the same as well. We had a group that stayed together for years. Lots of people went on to work on shows (or were working on one at the time). Can't recommend UCLA enough.

Re: WeScreenplay Full Coverage package

Join a writers group. They're free (unless you're renting space) and invaluable, as long as you find the right people. If you can't find one, start your own.

No one should pay for services like this...

Re: StoryRocket

I've never been a believer in getting notes from consultants, no matter how much they cost or how good their reputation. It's silly to me to spend $200 every time you need a read. It's MUCH better to...

Re: Attachments to project

This is true. Going through this as we speak.

As for features (mentioned above), the reason directors come back faster is because you can go to multiple directors at once. Actors want the script...

Re: StoryRocket

All this.

The key tell here is they have no track record of any kind of success. Most of these guys at least try to tout something. Not sure why this one isn't.

Anyway, I found an interview with...

Re: Not responding back after reading script

Welcome to the business. That's just how it is, like it or not. No use getting upset or confused by this. Just keep writing and sending your stuff out, and eventually something will hit.

Re: Random film thread...

Just rewatched Hamburger Hill for the first time in many years. I've only seen it once before and had zero recollection of it, so it was like watching it for the first time. I had no idea Don Cheadle...

Re: Need manager/agent suggestions for an opportunity

Assuming this guy is on the level (and you never know, because people like to puff themselves up), there's probably a better way to approach this.

Let's start with your work: which one is your...

Re: Can I do anything with a high placement in a screenwriting competition?

In case anyone's wondering, Kailey Marsh, founder of the Blood List, is now a manager at Brillstein. Think this just happened recently.

As for the Black List, it's definitely true that reps push for...

Re: Can I do anything with a high placement in a screenwriting competition?

I was an Austin finalist in 2017, but it was in the TV drama spec category. Which means I had a free producers badge, a 1 in 3 chance of winning an award (and the potential of making a speech in...

Re: Brandon Blake, www.filmtvlaw.com

This is patently false, as I've had two attorneys (including current one), have signed no paying deals, and they both have done work for free on the promise that I would indeed sell something and pay...

Re: LA Area Code...

Just so we're clear, Manhattan Beach is NOT an hour from LA. More like 15 mins from the westside (if traffic's okay, lol). I used to work in El Segundo, which is just north of MB, and the commute for...

Well, this is what happens when you elect a dumbf*ck game show host for president. Hopefully, it teaches us a lesson, but I doubt it.

There's no use overthinking this situation, and no danger of burning bridges if you politely decline and move on. And I wouldn't help the guy find other writers, who might resent you if they get into...

Curious about your approach to this. I'm terrible at this part of the game. How do you go about reach out to stay in touch? A simple, "Hey, just checking in to say hi"? (not that simple, but you...

Hemingway did blow his brains out with a shotgun, so I don't think the lonely writing life is all it's cracked up to be.
