Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

So easy to get all of that. Put on a little mask. Don't touch your face while out. Use the wipes at the store they give you to wipe hands and car.

About the only they really like in certain...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

I went to the grocery store and the pharmacy today. Not a ton of people out. No lines outside, so I think most to many are being very smart about it. And folks for the most part were wearing masks...

Re: LA Area Code...

The Valley is anywhere from 5 to 20 degrees hotter than West LA, Santa Monica, BH, and just about anywhere on this side of the hill. (And as you go east away from the water it goes up too, of...

Re: LA Area Code...

It's a little bit of personal taste and some may be put off by this but I'd say this in order, IF the phone carrier will even allow it:

424

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

I am not aware of any default setting or even any setting for spacing when posting. It could *possibly* be browser issue, though not positive. If you are writing posts up in Word first, for example,...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

I normally go about three to four times a week. Just depends. I shop a little on the lighter side if I can. Getting out is or was nice, so I didn't mind under normal circumstances. Now just about...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Yes. I still go to the store two to three times a week here in West LA. It's actually better now/this week than it was a week or two ago. On occasion there will be a line out front -- all nicely...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

As a reminder to all, please stick to the topic of the "Effect of the Coronavirus" on the film & TV industry here in Los Angeles and around the world.

For years now, we've asked folks not to get...

Re: Choosing a Location Where the Writer has Never been

Researching info online and via books, videos, etc. should be more than enough. You will surely know more about that location than surely anyone reading the script at that point. Also, if it's a...

Re: Force de Majeure

Yes. As it all goes further and further along, who knows what will happen with development. It's (going to be) tough for everyone. At a certain point if this all drags on, buying or optioning...

Re: Force de Majeure

Fair enough. And normally, I would actually suggest sending a polite note reminding them the option has fully ended, politely "thank" them and note you're moving on -- after the option was truly...

Re: Force de Majeure

I'd lean more towards it's not quite so much a force de majeure. Granted it's a a huge problem on many levels, but technically speaking executives, producers, reps, writers, directors, etc. can all...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

I think it's relatively safe to go out here. Just use what precautions you can. Wash hands, use any hand sanitizers available at a location, wipe down any shopping carts before going in the store,...

I wouldn't suggest, of course, "running too wild" with all this, but there is again some leeway with public figures. (This especially takes place with TV...

Re: Writing copyrighted material

In the case of Elton with ROCKETMAN or Freddie & Queen with BOHEMIAN they needed the rights so they could use their songs and have them consult.

But a decent number of films & TV movies have been...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

For whatever little it is worth, we went out for drinks and to dinner last night and the restaurant was packed -- granted it's a great/popular spot, but still. We've also been out running errands for...

If you write something based on someone's life then that isn't really copyrighted material or IP, if you will. IP is actual "property" protected by law - a...

Re: Formatting questions relating to character names and descriptions

Yes. You don't capitalize characters names in dialogue ever really, unless again as I noted, a character is say shouting at them, for example. Even then I wouldn't generally recommend doing that. But...

Re: Formatting questions relating to character names and descriptions

You can do either. Not the end of the world. For production's sake, casting and the ADs, you could just do EMMA (O.S) or even EMMA'S VOICE.

As long as it's not confusing and reads well, then no one...

Granted you may hear some varying thoughts, but I'll throw these out there for you based on what I've seen or even done over the years.

Re: Marketing and Distribution Strategy

Ever so briefly too, let me touch on one other key things you will have to deal with, particularly after you are all done. Deliverables. These can be extremely tasking and tough to deal with.

I gotcha. Okay, I've worked mostly on studio features and I have seen most of what went into those. But I've helped a friend produce (and associate produce) two of his low-budget indie films.
