Re: Blacklist's "Scriptbook"

Got the Scriptbook today and the refund is being processed.

Put my initial reaction to the report on Twitter:

My personal opinion is that, as is, it offers very...

Re: Blacklist's "Scriptbook"

I ordered one and haven't received it yet (or the refund). I thought there was supposed to be a 48 hour turnaround - but maybe the cancellation has slowed the production pace.

In any event, looking...

Re: Query - should I mention legal publications (attorney)?

Another lawyer here, also have published - I agree that mentioning any type of legal article doesn't warrant a mention in a query . . . unless, I guess, it had something to do with your script - and...

Re: Manager approached me and now negotiating representation, I think I need help!

If it's a representation/retainer agreement with your attorney - he'll be representing both you and your LLC's interests. Makes sense to have your name on it. I assume he's got the LLC in there as...

Re: My first Blacklist review - 8

Yes - you have to find a script that has decided to opt-in to having it's scores displayed on a graph.

For a 3:

Uploaded: 8.92%

Non-Uploaded: 2.16%

Re: Anyone Deal With Mark Kratter?

Yes - nice guy, energetic, talks a good game. Whether that translates into him being able to walk the talk - I never got that far.

Wanted to do low/no dollar option. Pretty sure he just scoops up...

Re: Overexposed on Blacklist?

Most recent timeline experience with the BL for those interested:

Days until assigned to a reader: 25

Days after that until a reader downloaded script: 2

After reader download (2:45 pm) how...

Re: Fastest Rejection....

I can't beat it - but can match it. I had a very similar experience with Scott - he's quick!

I emailed him a query, 20 min. later he said send it, I did, and then he got back to me the next...

Re: New campaign for screenwriters

And - registering your script with the WGA offers only toothless copyright "protection" (and even saying that may be a huge stretch).

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

I know in the past that the Black List (Franklin) has made it clear that the brief reviews given by their readers are not full coverage or even script notes - that's how the initial price point was...

Re: Circle of Confusion

You are definitely not an idiot for questioning the language in the release - standard, boilerplate, or whatnot. But, thinking you've stumbled upon some big conspiracy?

The simple fact is that you...

Re: Circle of Confusion

Re: Info on producer Ross Otterman?

He's a real nice guy to talk with.

In my experience with him - he's a zero $ option guy. With my script, he initially passed on it - liked it, but didn't think he could do anything with it. ...

Re: Just received my eval from the Black List...

Hey, Brad - why both copyright and WGA registration? WGA is virtually worthless for amateurs.

Also - the BL really isn't a place to go looking for "coverage" - Franklin's said as much many times. ...

Re: good faith

Generally speaking, good faith = you acting reasonably.

Hard to say whether you've done that here without reading the book, the screenplay and all correspondence between the parties.

Re: Possible to "move forward" with a 7 on the blcklst?

Nitrohawk - I've had a 7 (and worse) on the BL. I cherry picked good comments and made it part of my query. While I got read requests - hard to say if the BL helped. It certainly didn't hurt. Not...

I too have used favorable snippets from BL readers in queries - and, for those people who've responded favorably to the pitch, not a one has asked me what my BL scores were (lowest was a 4). So - a...

Re: VPF Virtual Pitch Fest anyone?
