Question Problem Reading Dark Scripts

I specialize in writing light-hearted kids' movies and series, or family-friendly movies.

My watching habits are much the same, with some regular sitcoms and sci-fi/fantasy action serials added...

Exclamation Re: Scriptnotes' slushpile

I've had one of my scripts selected for AOW, back in 2014. It's not a contest, really [the only thing you 'win' is Carson reading and posting his review of your script up on the site].

Post Re: Scriptnotes' slushpile

You've got me there, Ronaldinho. He's not without flaws or mistakes. That much we know.

I basically came up with that on the fly - I guess I said that because, while he's not always spot-on, he...

Re: Scriptnotes' slushpile

I used to listen to Scriptnotes often.

But I haven't in the last few months. It's become more and more about politics and gadgets and software, and less about screenwriting.

Carson isn't perfect....

Hi Cyfress,

If you haven't been fully bombarded yet, I'd like to take you up on that offer, and give you notes on anything you'd like in the future too.

I'll send you a message in a moment, as...

Question Pitching Series Over Phone Tips?

Hi there,

Later this week I'll be calling a production executive to try to pitch a pilot I helped create. This is mostly at the cocreator's suggestion.

Red face Re: Writing for Series with 4+ Seasons

Thanks. Some interesting points.

It seems I'll have to think long and hard about which show I want to delve into and watch all of.

I'll also consider if it's worth all the effort just for this one...

I'm not sure Lost should be used as a typical example.

It might be best to have SOMETHING resolved within the episode, even if it's not a big part of the overall story.

I understand what you mean, Centos.

Exclamation Re: My experience about the Blacklist - and the bigger picture

How did you know that a script was following a trend?

How would one tell the difference between a writer that followed a trend and a...

Red face Re: Good managers to query for an animated feature script?

If you've already written it, then it can't hurt to send it out. It can serve as a good writing sample - if it is good enough. Just expect there's very little chance of it being bought.
