Re: He placed SECOND

Bizarre... Can't wrap my head around why a novelist with his creds would enter a no-name screenplay contest? So weird...

Re: Scriptapalooza contest 2017

Not anywhere near the same league, I'm afraid. I met a writer who won this contest a few years back and he had nothing good to say about it. Seems like they put out a lot of hype about how heavily...

Re: Project Greenlight Season 4

PG is back?!? OMG, I'm so out of it, I had no idea.

Thanks for the heads-up, jboffer! Gotta tune in for this...

Re: PAGE Awards 2015

I was a Semi-Finalist a few years back and one of the judges who read my script during the contest hired me to do a rewrite on a project. And because of that deal, soon afterwards I was signed by a...

Re: PAGE Awards 2015

Y'know, Foxhoud, I'm no shrink, but at some point I think you gotta accept responsibility for the fact that you wrote a great script. ;-) Congrats!

Re: Scripped dies, takes screenplays with it...

Yeah, I got this email too. I tried using Scripped in its early days but found it pretty clunky, so I finally caved in and bought Final Draft. Thank God!

A buddy of mine lost two scripts he was...

Re: Page Awards Feedback

What're you on, Bono? Man, you should consider cutting back. It's really messing with your head.

Re: All screenplay contests are SCAM?

You really need to look up the definition of the word "scam," Bono. A scam is something dishonest or fraudulent. In your own words, some diet plans are legit science and really want to help you lose...

Re: Grandview Management

Sure, I'd say give it a shot! Even better if you have a name you can drop. In the past, I always found them to be very accessible. Though the company has changed, I wouldn't think that has changed.

Re: Page Awards Feedback

LOL! Yeah, well, the difference is you didn't read my script and your feedback wasn't the least bit helpful.

Re: All screenplay contests are SCAM?

You're kidding, right? Like any business, contests are run by human beings. Some may be run well and some may not.

You need me to make the leap of logic for you?

Re: Page Awards Feedback

I've gotten feedback from them on several screenplays. Totally worth it! Really smart, in-depth notes that have helped improve my scripts tremendously.

Re: All screenplay contests are SCAM?

"All screenplay contests are SCAM (sic)?" Seriously?

All blondes are dumb.
All Jews are rich.
All poor people are lazy.
All cops are corrupt.
All salesmen are liars.
ad infinitum...

Jesus...

Re: Contest Ranking

Are you kidding? It takes a minute or two to respond to a post here, and I've done so only, what, maybe three/four times? I may have spent 15 or 20 minutes here total. Granted, not time well spent....

Re: Contest Ranking

Margie, I'm not "mad" at Greg. I simply questioned why all these other lists he posted (most of which were also just "opinion" lists) were somehow more valid or valuable than Aspirant's, and why he...

Re: The Artist

Not "hung up" of "biasing myself" at all -- just pointing out the main reason why this thing put me to sleep. I had heard great things about this movie and went with high expectations, wanting to...

Re: Contest Ranking

My apologies. Obviously I didn't look carefully enough at every list, but in your first (unedited) list, nowhere did I spot a mention of TrackingB. And personally, I don't think that old lists from...

Re: The Artist

Ugh. I agree with you, Tochirta. Totally predictable. Totally boring. Sure, the lead actor is charming enough, but we're supposed to be storytellers here, and how many variations of "A Star is...

Re: Trackinb Contest

Me, too, Presto. From everything I've read here in this forum, this seems to be a great contest for the winners, but I wish they listed semi-finalists, too. That way, even if you didn't end up...

Re: Active vs. Reactive Hero

Agreed, Jon. Butch WAS always plotting and planning. I'm trying to think of some famous movies that did have a passive protagonist.

Re: Entourage - Season 8 (Final Season)

I used to like these characters, but I just don't give a f**k about any of them anymore. Yet I keep tuning in every week, hoping against hope.
