Re: Option Question

A clause I didn't like, so I wanted to know what I believed was supposed to happen, so both your answers confirm my thoughts. I don't have reps at this time.

Are a percentage of producer "net...

Option Question

If pre-production has already commenced when the initial option period expires, they must pay the option extension fee to continue with pre-production, correct? And is this the norm?

Re: Nicholl 2020

Right. Absolutely. Different contests have different tastes.

What matters, is that others in the business of buying and selling recognized her talent.

Re: Nicholl 2020

Every writer who submitted their script believed it would advance. Why would anyone enter otherwise? For feedback? No, somewhere inside they thought it was good enough.

And there's nothing wrong...

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

Can you import a PDF that contains a watermark into another writing software?

Can you make changes in an FD draft if you lock the pages?

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

Good, then. But they could have you make all those changes and run scene reports for them, just by asking you to, right?

Sounds like you're happy, so no worries, then. But do register it. Even if...

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

Sure there could be a negative if they (the producers) believe that the rewrites you've done are their copyright protected material.

The ONLY reason I can see for wanting the FD file is because they...

Re: Sending FD doc without contract

Don't send anything without a signed contract. Do not even send a PDF.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why would the producer receive sole STORY BY credit. Story by credit is reserved for the...

Re: How Do You Do Funny?

I completed a comedy (rom-com) spec recently. I'm not a comedy writer, I'm an action thriller writer. It's high concept. I can infuse levity into dark material.

In my rom-com, I read a bunch of...

Re: Signing with Lawyer -- Lawyer agreement question

I never signed anything. We just started working together with the first contract my manager at the time sent him. He's negotiated two contracts that we did not execute and he hasn't made a dime yet,...

Re: Writing Partnership Termination Agreement?

Sorry things ended badly.

Aside from the agreement, which you don't know if he's going to read, let alone sign, I'd like to offer a suggestion for immediate action.

If you haven't...

Re: UTA reaches agreement with WGA

That's exactly what I was looking for. I do understand the chances will depend on the level of their interest.
Thank you, AnyOtherName.

Re: Picking Right Idea

Totally agree with you here. Once I have an idea I won't even think about outline or research until I can form a clear logline.

Re: What to do...

From what I understand, generally, is that agents can help when you want to get a job. Your lawyer will, most likely, be fine on his own to negotiate the deal. I would trust my lawyer a 100% and feel...

Re: The Old Guard

It was good.

Saw it last night. Would make a great series. Kind of like Assassins meets 6 Underground without the big Michael Bay 25 minute car chase opening.

Before you sign the deal you have the most leverage, but I'm not sure I understand the dynamics fully.
