Re: The Crew -- Jeff

A fair statement to me is...

Re: Do people query on weekends?

Last spec in May/June was comically slow. The first one was the old send out Wednesday for weekend reads and Monday they were fighting for territories. Second one? Send to agency on a Friday, Sunday...

Re: Gucci Gives Back

What you say is not untrue I have found them to just be way less likely to ghost/flake if/when they lose interest.

Re: Gucci Gives Back

Re: How do you make a good impression on that first meeting?

Oh yeah I was in the process of leaning back and spitting when we made eye contact. It was really Ben Stiller circa 2001.

Re: How do you make a good impression on that first meeting?

The hugging thing threw me for a loop. Not that I’m weirded out by it but I felt like Pesci in My Cousin Vinny watching the chef cook with lard. “You people hear about the ongoing #metoo...

Re: How do you make a good impression on that first meeting?

Not giving off weirdo writer vibes seems to help with producers in my experience. Project flexibility and being open to change and not being precious with your ideas.

If you place top 25 in the Tracking Board all of their execs they have as judges are at least going to give your logline a glance. So have a great logline.

Re: A Kinder, Gentler Netflix

The cancellation of Santa Clarita and the general decline of Stranger Things will make pulling the plug quite easy after Ozark S3 is done. Bring on the Disney and Apple, I guess.
