Re: How Many Members On Done Deal Are Writer - Directors?

And you would be wrong. Nobody has an easy chance to break in. It's years of hard work either way.... Oh, an no writer is breaking in with a script that's got a 300 million dollar budget, ever.

Re: Feature or TV

I wish this advice was true because it would be great to write 40 million dollar films. The problem? No one is making them in any significant numbers and even then they're mostly recognizable IPs. If...

Re: Feature or TV

Both? I write both. Sold both. But only the films, and not all of them, got made. Write low budget films, streaming series... Have fun doing it. I have my next 2 films scripts ready to write... and...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

I'll give you the first bit of my pitch.... "It's the anti-True Detective. Light, bone dry, funny, just as violent." It's a very weird very funny pilot. People seemed to love it. Huge talent...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

It was a much more complicated contract, took over a month for my reps to negotiate, and would be more than any of my film sales if it went. But it didn't. I did make some good initial money, but the...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

I sold, as in SOLD, a pilot script 3 years ago, some amazing producers and talent attached and it went..... nowhere. The production company still tells me it's not dead, but I know better. Have two...

Re: Seeking Suggestions for What to Ask When Contacting Industry Execs Cold

Re: What are you looking for?

This is the same path I took... and that script, even though it finally got made 18 years after I wrote it, is still paying off. I do believe in the "one great script can open doors" theory.

Re: A Note about Notes

You got that right. Chemo is easy to talk about. It's a lot harder to endure. People have no idea. My first chemo session, they sent a guy in a Hazmat Suit to take it out of my bladder. A HAZMAT...

Re: Formerly Repped

Yep. It doesn't hurt to ask people you know. All they can say is no. I sat in a conference room with the head of production company once I'd done a couple rewrite jobs for, before I had an agent.......

Re: Old Shorts

I've gotten a dozen made. My point is they asked for them. Yes, you can do the "my dog ate them" thing... But you still need to show them something. Honest.

Re: Old Shorts

If they asked for them, you gotta send 'em. Make sure you reiterate "Student Shorts".... otherwise they're going wonder what you're hiding, if you told the truth, or if you're uncooperative. I wish...
