Re: Adam Harris Engelhard - Manager/Producer

So, what are you asking exactly? Are you looking for advice on whether or not to approach Adam? Or are you asking how to handle the situation with your former manager still attached as a producer? Or...

Re: There's a whole lot of food for thought here

Curious, did you take her to the movies when she was younger? I take mine a lot and they love it. They also watch YouTube and Netflix at home, but so far haven't lost their love of going to the...

Re: WGA Rejects latest ATA Offer - Revenue Sharing Off the Table

I was with them before all this went down. And I can see your point about former clients, and definitely wouldn't put it past them. I had an issue with WME in the past and know full well how terrible...

Re: WGA Rejects latest ATA Offer - Revenue Sharing Off the Table

I don't know how true that is. I'm a Verve client and have traction inside CAA right now on a feature.

Re: Why are producers interested in paying me?

Yes, this is a confusing question. Even your title is a head scratcher.

Re: Franklin Leonard

Well, I guess I kinda sort of know Bono. So there's one!

And I think the line between querying and referrals is clear. No need to hash that out.

How many repped/pro writers do I know? Probably...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I would argue that's not the case. I don't know anyone who has gotten a rep from a query. Yes, it happens but I don't think most get theirs this way. It's usually a referral from working in the...

Re: Game Of Thrones

It is what it is. I liked the ending for the most part, but totally get why others didn't. Regardless, it was a landmark series that may well be the last must-see show we all watch in real time.

Re: Project requested, no agent/manager to send it

Actually it should stay open. I'm curious to hear what happens when you respond (if you don't mind reporting back).

Re: Project requested, no agent/manager to send it

To be honest, this sounds like a pass. From time to time you might hear the term "soft pass." That's when someone doesn't want to look like the bad guy while being the bearer of bad news. Which, in...

Re: How do you know its time to fire your manager? (first manager)

Unfortunately, this will likely not be the case. It's smart to wait a few weeks (or longer) to see how things shake out with the ATA battle, but I wouldn't get my hopes up that this guy is going to...

Re: Cut To:

You don't have to use it as a transition. It can be added to the action line, like so:

Mary runs through the woods. CUT TO:

INT. CAR - DAY

Blah blah.

Jumping back into this. I've done UpWork and one or two of those other freelance sites (not the one OP posted). Like anything, you have to be careful not to get trapped in a job that pays garbage or...

Re: Craig Mazin's "Chernobyl" HBO series

Re: Spiteful Gersh Agents?

Both sides need to recognize that the agencies will never give up billions of dollars and to stop pretending that there's a way to negotiate this. The only solution is to go the MCA route and have...
