Re: Parasite

I was reading somewhere online today to just go in cold because it's better to be surprised and that it's the best movie of the year to a bunch of people (critics). Though, every time I hear best...

Re: When you query ...

I don't know what genre/type of script this is, but 139 is going to be tough to get traction on. Even if a prodco or creative exec or manager liked the script itself, they would still have to justify...

Re: James Franco sued

I'm clearly stating you seem like the biggest effing piece of **** on this board.

Yes, dude, you're an expert on women. Go write your Whores script, I'm sure it'll be great.

Re: James Franco sued

He played a male prostitute in a movie directed by Nic Cage. Very long time ago. I'm not sure if he was "James Franco" then or a nobody? It grossed 30k, so, I'm guessing it... wasn't good. ...

Re: A Note about Notes

That's true. Because the first note makes you think about the character and imagine ways to fix it, the second note makes you immediately defensive and it's hard to think of story possibilities if...

Re: A Note about Notes

I'd think if you are reading for a specific fellowship/contest, you would be geared to what that fellowship/contest is looking for, though.

Re: A Note about Notes

Vastly opposing notes happen to me all the time. I have no idea why. Nothing I write is particularly polemic, but you wouldn't know it by the notes I get.

Case in point: crime drama entered into the...

Re: Smart Girls Productions query letter mailing

Well, now I'm curious. Was it what they thought about a script your rep sent them of yours or just the manner in which they speak amongst themselves?

Miles Drentell!! Yes -- he was always speaking in these weird parables, crushing them while they' were trying to keep their jobs. It was truly compelling.

Re: Wescreenplay Full Coverage package

I cannot stress this enough -- no one will give a crap about Wescreenplay or whether or not they gave you a consider or a pass.

They are a non-entity in the world of screenwriting.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

In the context of THIS THREAD, you, at length, quoted a pro about all the ways in which he would condemn an unsuspecting fellow DD's work. Not your own work, someone else's.
