Re: Picking Right Idea

This would be a good question for Will, since he updates the main site, I believe.

I know that managers and writers have used TrackingB, and possibly Tracking Board to get information out when there...

Re: Picking Right Idea

JoeNYC,

Uninformed? WTF Joe, you feel it's okay to insult me because I don't agree with you. State your own f'ing opinion and leave me out of your attacks.

It's my opinion. You know one of those...

Re: Picking Right Idea

Personally, I don't believe this is true. I think writers know that they have, and write, mediocre ideas all the time.

Why are they writing them? Because they can't/don't have a better idea. It's...

I feel you. And second you.

I still don't have power either. The pool is full of debris, a 100 ft tree is down in the yard and I had to restart a email to my lawyer yesterday, I kid you not, 25...

Re: Picking Right Idea

That was fun.

I think JOHN TUCKER MUST DIE is a great idea. Thought so the first time I heard it and think so now.

SAVING PRIVATE RYAN is also a GREAT idea because it's a story, as human beings, we...

Re: Signing with Lawyer -- Lawyer agreement question

I wanted to come here and amend my previous statement. I had a lawyer with an A-list company (think Brad Pitt, Tarantino, etc), and the lawyer was a partner. He did assist with two contracts that...

Re: Master Class In Screenwriting About Structure

It's important to note that he is specifically speaking about mainstream, commercial Hollywood movies, with a single Hero, which is also what Michael Hague's work, and some of Christopher Vogler's...

I agree. I watched where he said he maps out to the center, but to think much beyond that doesn't help... until he gets to the center. He also admits that he writes genre pieces, so he has a good...

A clause I didn't like, so I wanted to know what I believed was supposed to happen, so both your answers confirm my thoughts. I don't have reps at this time.

Option Question

If pre-production has already commenced when the initial option period expires, they must pay the option extension fee to continue with pre-production, correct? And is this the norm?

Right. Absolutely. Different contests have different tastes.

What matters, is that others in the business of buying and selling recognized her talent.

Re: Nicholl 2020

Every writer who submitted their script believed it would advance. Why would anyone enter otherwise? For feedback? No, somewhere inside they thought it was good enough.

And there's nothing wrong...

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

Can you import a PDF that contains a watermark into another writing software?

Can you make changes in an FD draft if you lock the pages?

Good, then. But they could have you make all those changes and run scene reports for them, just by asking you to, right?

Sounds like you're happy, so no worries, then. But do register it. Even if...

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

Sure there could be a negative if they (the producers) believe that the rewrites you've done are their copyright protected material.

The ONLY reason I can see for wanting the FD file is because they...

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

Don't send anything without a signed contract. Do not even send a PDF.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why would the producer receive sole STORY BY credit. Story by credit is reserved for the...
