Re: Austin 2019 - Help Please

I come from Fort Worth, here's my 2 from four or five trips -

Drive down Thursday AM, save a hotel/food night and use what you save to spring for the Producer's badge. Conference badge gets you...

This. Spend the $40 on Lottery tickets and it'll be less disappointing.

I won't be surprised if it's not next week. Nothing happens fast.

Re: Mysterious email. What would you do?

Yeah, I wasn't worried about it getting stolen - it's been copyrighted and registered with the guild, been in a few contests. This just wasn't a way I'd ever been approached about a piece. No query,...

Re: Mysterious email. What would you do?

That's what worried me - I can't think of a downside. I've always been wary of things that look too good to be true.

Mysterious email. What would you do?

This is unusual. I received an email from a gmail address purporting to be from a real production company, referencing a script I've had on the BlackList site for a couple of years. I'd actually...

Re: Austin Film Festival 2017

Not true - I placed in the pitch competition at Austin and it got me reads and a hip pocket deal with a manager.

Re: Austin Film Festival 2017

Did anybody get a letter?

The first time I was a second rounder I got a letter with a nice handwritten note from Matt Dy and a congratulatory phone call.

The next time, a letter and a phone...

Re: Austin Post Mortem - anyone?

I did a blog post (http://bycolinholmes.com/2016/10/26/2016-austin-screenwriters-conference-recap/) about it. I've been 5 years now and this wasn't the best I've been to, but it was still well worth...

Re: DDealers who are going to Austin?

One thing I haven't seen -

Sessions and panels can and do change. Make your basic schedule through the app or Sched, but bookmark the website and check the daily one sheets on the tables at the...

Re: DDealers who are going to Austin?

Great info all around. I'd be up for a meet up.

My only problem with the Driskill Bar is it can get stupidly crowded. Totally agree on the breakfast at the Driskill/1886. Superb, but not cheap.

My...

Re: Austin FF worth it?

It's worth it for exposure to the industry and a chance to meet and talk with people who are doing this as a real career. If you show well in the competition it can give a boost.

I did well in the...

I was on the site when it opened and got a 404 error. Reloaded and instantly got the message that everything was full. Literally less than 30 seconds.

I sent a strongly worded email expressing my...

Re: Austin notification timeline

I got a call this afternoon, but I have one other script in the mix that I've heard nothing about. The person I spoke with said they would be sending letters, emails and phone calls until the 12th.

Re: Worth it to do contests if you're already repped?

IMHO - The idea of contests is to become visible to reps. Once you're repped you should be trying to get meetings and assignments.

If you've got a spec, your reps should be shopping that for a deal,...

Good to hear! I've still not received an email.... Waiting semi-patiently.

I feel for you on the phone issue. Getting robocalls is bad enough. Phantom ring and runs when you're waiting for 'that'...

No email for me, but I did get a hard copy snail mail letter saying my animated comedy made the second round. No word on the feature comedy I entered, yet.

I'm only a few hours from Austin so the...

Re: Nashville Writers Conference vs Austin

Not just a lack of heat.
I was a semifinalist this year and that didn't even warrant a discount on a badge. I could go to all the films I wanted but getting a badge to the writer's conference was...

Re: Hip Pocketing

Or just have a quality entertainment lawyer handle the deal for a percentage. If you've got offers, you've done most of the work already.
