Re: Vertigo Entertainment?

I would suggest going to someone besides Roy Lee if you actually want a response.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Is there any way to make the justification self adjusting on the web site.

Re: I want to work in Development

I would suggest a more targeted approach after learning from my mistakes. This coming from someone who likes to be on the creative/development side and wound up on the production side.

Re: Bombing a pitch meeting.

*Update*

After a week of regrouping and changing our approach we had our first pitch after the retooling.

We spent a solid week working on art boards that we could bring into the room to give a...

Re: Script payment

As a guy who works BTL(below the line) deferred payment = no payment every time.

Like everyone here has said, no contract and no payment makes no sense.

Re: Primal Pictures

From what I gather you should still be able to use your contact over at Vertigo. I dont believe there are separate offices yet. Right now it's just a genre division with Vertigo dedicated to low...

Re: Bombing a pitch meeting.

Our "pitch" is timing in at 15 minutes. The meeting usually starts with informal conversation just trying to get to know who's in the room. We try to find a fluid way to jump into the pitch which...

Re: Bombing a pitch meeting.

It's good to hear some of these stories of succes and failure.

I'm not sure if we have a solid approach for our pitch yet. Everyone seems to have their own way of doing things. And that's to be...

Re: Bombing a pitch meeting.

The general idea I'm getting from some writers and their blogs is to pitch the story like you would describe a good movie you've seen.

If thats the approach I would imagine that a lot of the...

Bombing a pitch meeting.

My writing partner and I have had meetings in the past. The standard meet and greets, and a couple concept meetings. But we've never actually had a scheduled "pitch meeting" before. Especially one...

Re: When looking for a new manager...

It's a very awkward conversation to have with your current manager when the potential replacements inform them of your intentions.

I've been there. It's not fun.

Hindsight being what it is, I would...

Liability issue??

Several months ago a graphic novel was presented to myself and my writing partner to adapt. The producers interest in the project has since faded, but we would like to retain the story we created for...

Re: How long does it take?

I've been lucky before and had it take 4 weeks. Lucky I say in reference to a well prepared outline and being in the zone creatively. I'm currently on a spec that is two years in the making. This is...

Re: Writing the GOOD treatment...

My treatments usually wind up at 25 pages. My outlines 3-5 pages. Maybe I'm backwards but I usually only do treatments for other people to see the story I'm going to create.

Maybe I'm just long...

Re: Hardest part of a horror

Good writers give you character elements without making it blatant in your face. It should be seemless and integrated into the story without causing a bump in the fabric.

They dont have to monologue...

Re: Hardest part of a horror

I think it varies depending on what kind of horror movie your trying to create. It's great to know why as the creator of the villain but sometimes I like to explore it from the characters pov and...

Re: THE MIST - Why do people not like it?

I liked the flick. And the ending was my favorite part.

Who knows. Different tastes I guess. I got what frank was going for and dug it.

Re: For those who have optioned a script...

I think it is different for everyone. Usually you will get a bunch of passes, it happens. All it takes is one yes though.

I would ask why three different scripts at once though?
