Re: WGA-ATA stalemate. workaround?

How are you drawing the line between "legitimate" directors and "marginal" directors? DGA membership? So if you're DGA then you can go ahead and keep talking to your agents, but OP can't?

I don't...

Re: WGA-ATA stalemate. workaround?

Come on man, that's not helpful. He was asking a legitimate question about being a hyphenate. The WGA has issued statements about hyphenates during this process and they'd probably tell OP that what...

Re: Flat Out Rude?

OP, simply out of curiosity - when you have a "successful" cold call, does the assistant actually give you their/their boss' email address? Or do you already have it on hand and really you're just...

Re: Amateur move?

It's all in the way you pitch it. I've pitched really specific things in generals before. Things that could only get made at one place, with one person, etc. etc. Lots of times its just to get the...

Re: What's a realistic batting average on queries?

With my first script, I sent out queries to 250 mangers and 150 agents. From those I got 12 read requests. From those 12 requests came 4 offers to meet, and from those 4 meetings came 2 offers of...

Re: If your manager doesn't like a particular script...

Re: Commencement

As mentioned, your lawyer should indicate to you when its safe to begin work. I'd be as honest with the creative producers as possible about where you're at. Telling them or implying that you've been...

Re: Etiquette question: Meeting with a manager

...that's exactly what I said. Don't leverage it and create a false sense of competition. Nothing wrong with giving them a heads up.

Re: Etiquette question: Meeting with a manager

Totally depends on how you hit it off (or don't) with the manager. You'll know in the room if it's right and you want to sign before hearing back from the others.

Whatever you do, don't try to...

Re: Query Letter Success Stories

Five years ago I sent queries to 250 managers and 150 agents. I used imdbpro and my own research to form the lists. Out of all those emails (and a few actual letters) I got 12 read requests (11...

Re: Mysterious email. What would you do?

I got a similar request from a legit director/producer for a script that I totally forgot was on BL. It was inactive, so the download button no longer worked. I cc'ed my reps and sent it. Never...

Re: Getting reconnected

This. You need to figure out if you are part of a writing team or not. Most of the time writing partnerships have the same reps - it just makes everything less complicated. Agents at the majors...

Re: The Witch

Re: Changing agencies question (warning: silly)

It's not a silly question, but in my experience the answer is no. Especially if these are CEs who you've only met generally. (If you have projects in development with them, or are up for an OWA,...

Re: Boutique management vs bigger management companies?

I was rep'ed at Kaplan/Perrone and I'm now rep'ed at 360 so I have experience in both worlds. Generally speaking, "negotiating power" isn't really a useful metric in terms of judging managers. In...
