Re: The Crown

I sat down and binged season 1 this week.

It's gorgeous and, though I am NOT a lover of straight up drama, this is a very surprising series. I am fascinated with it. I love John Lithgow and Jared...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

The only thing that might prevent a flood of "jumping ship," is if WME tied "contingencies" to their bonuses, like, you cannot leave within 6 months of your payout or it's forfeit.

I'm not sure...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

they should, unless they want their clients going to Gersh.

it's gotta burn the big guys, knowing that Gersh will be able to package until two of them...

Re: Collaboration Agreement - Question!

Jeff didn't receive sole "created by" credit, he shared it with both JJ and Damon. He was fired after he wrote a pilot. The article shows how the "originator" of the idea isn't guaranteed to receive...

Re: Collaboration Agreement - Question!

You should go to the Wgaw.org and research this yourself, because understanding it will help you. You can find everything you need to know about how credit works and what you can expect IF you are...

Re: What Makes For A Good Plot Twist?

A good listen, TigerFang, and like a good plot twist-- it makes sense when you hear the reasonings behind the "magic trick."

Re: Underwater

It feels like a contained thriller when reading it, which it is, but because of the setting (underwater most of the entire film), it's expensive. Yikes, it's at $2.5 million in two days--2700...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

umm, are you talking about Abrams? Because they signed back in November. :bounce: Or did you mean someone else, perhaps? did you mean that Gersh, Paradigm and APA? if so, that'd be a big move, no?

Re: TV pilot - length issue

The only thing that I'll add is managers, more and more, want their feature writers to have a TV pilot as well.

That's not to say that a feature writer can't break into TV with a feature, they can...

Yeah, I don't see how a long pilot can be justified in the current marketplace. I'm not sure if you're going for cable or network, but if GOT, Westworld, Lost In Space, The Witcher, Chernobyl, The...

The delusion is amateurs "think" they are in an inferior position to professional writers. They believe pros have an advantage they do not themselves have.

The reality is simple... professional...

Re: Exorcising Cliche

You could show it as a visual montage, which if well written can be quite powerful. I think that can be a sophisticated choice. CONTAGION does this well; they show the process of the pandemic's...

your choices are simple, to try or not to try contacting prodcos that have relationships with Netflix and Amazon.

what is certain, is if you DO NOT try you won't get anywhere.

Agreed.

Finished it two nights ago. Thought it was great. The only comment I would make is that when they "change" the timeline, they're not very clear that they've actually flashed back-- you have...

It's harder than it was a few years ago. Managers are less responsive because many have had to fill the "agent" shoes in the interim with the ATA/WGA dispute, and it doesn't look like it's going to...
