Re: Picking Right Idea

My question -- are they using YOUR logline that you came up with when they requested a read, or are they relying on a reader's logline? Because that is a hell of a lot of faith/intrigue squandered if...

The second prompt for entries for the Imagine-Impact x Netflix entry is: "Lifestyle with a Competition Element."

Re: Nicholl 2020

Yes it does. It's one of my favorite scripts too. WTF?



The percent stays the same. The QF are always the top 5 percent.

Re: Nicholl 2020

This is true.

And in case anyone is feeling low -- the Nicholl, like everything, is subjective.

I previously got into the QF with a script that didn't get ANY positive reads this time, not even...

Re: Rooting for Antiheroes

FYI -- Asking questions and then being accusatory to the people answering them is going to ensure no one answers them.

Re: Rooting for Antiheroes

Anti-heroes aren't a new thing. It shouldn't even be an issue.

I googled. This came up. Basically, ensure your anti-hero has a relatable backstory that invokes our pity or understanding. Means we...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Is the "overcome a significant challenge in their lives" true for the Impact Netflix application this time?

Looking over the questions there's nothing that would indicate that. Unless I'm missing...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Having your project pitched to Netflix by a HUGE prodco like Imagine is not a small thing. It's a very large thing.

The application, being free, means anyone can apply. They've got to filter...

Re: StoryRocket

Uh... yes they are! The feedback here is fine if you're hacking out a logline or concept, but no one is going to read your whole script and give you global comments.

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

The category for this entry is for a large-scale family action-adventure, and they're using Pirates of the Caribbean and Night at the Museum as examples, so I'd say feature.



Those sections are...

Re: Competition Entry Numbers?

I think its a question of which set of readers you get.

For the Nicholl the quarters are the top 5 percent. You can have a script get quarterfinalist one year and not the next -- that's got nothing...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

This is true.

I think the pushback and confusion is that the category they are asking for is "Large scale family action-adventure" along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean.

I think it's because of the Coronavirus -- they can't have writers moving to LA and meeting to work because everyone is supposed to be social-distancing.

If no one has to re-locate to LA, then they...
