Re: Opinion Needed About Querying Managers at the Same Company

Nothing at all wrong with giving it a breather and circling back later, yep. Sounds like a good plan.

Re: Reese Witherspoon, Pacific Standard email?

Just because she/they won't accept submissions from random people they don't know doesn't make her or them 'all talk'. Her company currently has numerous projects in development at various stages,...

Re: Opinion Needed About Querying Managers at the Same Company

Same. Sent a query about the same script to two managers at a top firm. One responded instantly requesting to read it, and asked to rep me three days later after reading two of my scripts and loving...

Re: A Note about Notes

Totally agree with the gut thing.

Also, when it comes to aspiring writers, I think often they're relying too heavily on feedback for the correction of glaring flaws that they should be learning to...

Re: Maybe I'm Just Not Talented Enough...

I saw what you wrote, but even still I was still just thinking that's a lot of different avenues to pursue... even for 20 years. If you break it down it seems like every couple years you'd pivot to...

Re: Maybe I'm Just Not Talented Enough...

Well, it's one thing to have multiple interests, but being a "jack of all trades but master of none" is a tough thing. Kinda feels like you've done everything possible to chase success in...

Re: Should we all be writing books instead?

I had a couple ideas in the past where my former manager said, "I like it. But it may work better and we'd have more luck as a book first, gain an audience and then we can work on an adaptation."

I...

Re: Going Wide in 2019

Yeah, it's often a smaller and more targeted net... with a much longer wait, lol. I remember always hearing how scripts "went out wide" and then a week later there's a studio buyer or multiple buyers...

Re: WGA Offers a One Year Respite?

Yeah I've definitely had experience with similar shady sh*t, but not from an agent - rather, a former manager. Had a very specific high concept comedy idea that he shot down and told me not to waste...

Re: Emailing screenplay on the Weekends

I always tried to send within a couple hours of when it was requested, max. When you finally grab someone's attention, jump on it. Sometimes they'll take weeks to get to it, other times they'll read...

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

Whew, here we go! Guess everybody should get comfortable with the state of things. This is going to take quite awhile. Early on, my manager predicted it could last until the end of the year. After...

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

Just to clarify, the “using” statement is directed at a certain type. There’s a lot of leechy types out there, as we all know. Someone with a great script hoping to land an...

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

No, this is definitely true. For actors as well. I can't tell you how many times I've heard from popular actor (or actress) friends who've found out their teams passed on something they would have...

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

I’m glad you posted this because seeing people call OP’s situation a soft pass really frustrated me, hence my earlier reply. I’ve been noticing a lot of questionable advice (and...

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

It's more of a 'cover his ass' move than a pass, IMO. It's great that he liked the sound of it, so let him know that you don't have a rep at this time, but would love to circle back and send once you...

Re: Anyone outside America been read by CAA?

Sure, but most agents aren't going to want to take on a new client just to sell one piece of material and then get fired again, which would happen the moment the client had to join the WGA.

Re: Spiteful Gersh Agents?

This reaction was just further embarrassment for them. It was a chance to calmly say they respect an agency’s right to choose but disagree with their choice, yada yada. Instead, yet again, they...

Wow. Well, hopefully they’re not dumb enough to bother coming back to the table with another joke of an offer, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens next week. Probably nothing too hopeful, but...

Re: Me or the WGA?

Yep, spoke to a producer recently who's done a lot of big studio franchise projects and, well, let's just say they're not hating this current time. There's a direct access to writers that they seem...
