Re: Hashtag symbol in Final Draft on Imac

The hashtag character (#) is the ANSI 35 character if you can insert that. The other option is to copy it from another document and paste it into your script.

Re: Arbitration on non-original scripts

Re: Attachments to project

In TV, actors trump the vast majority of directors in the selling process. Known actors can secure more eyeballs than directors, and creators and showrunners are more important to networks than a...

Re: Protags: Likable? Relatable? Empathetic? Or is intriguing enough?

Your use of the word voyeuristic reminds me of Jon Boorstin's excellent book, The Hollywood Eye (sadly out of print). In it Boorstin posits that we watch movies from three different perspectives: the...

Re: Midpoint

Yeah, it's similar to taking something temporal and finite (a movie) then labeling the first part or parts the beginning, the last part or parts the ending, and then unsurprisingly everything else is...

Re: Rom-coms per Scriptshadow

I'm writing a very dark romcom titled Dumped In The Danube. It's about a woman who tracks down her fiance's killer, who dumped the body in the Danube, and falls in love with murderer.

Re: First 10 (or 1) page

I agree that the goal posts have become much more narrow. Back in the 90s and early 2000s there were still plenty of prodcos who had studio deals and could afford readers primarily because home video...

I've written and read enough about the 3-Act structure, especially on DD.

I enjoy watching the gurus twist and squirm when asked about PULP FICTION, THE ENGLISH PATIENT, BABEL and other non-linear films. Try applying Save The Cat to SLACKER. When confronted with...

Re: Single Cam vs Multi Cam sitcoms

I don't think it matters. So long as you're close to the format. Like Will and Jeff said above there's a lot of variation in format, and Disney's looking for creative writers not a script...

Bizarre? Yes.
Riveting? No.

The reason, I think, is that fiction and true-crime are fundamentally different genres that capture our attention in different ways (I'm using genre here in the semiotic...

Re: Writer/Directors and the WGA

Congrats Travis.

I totally agree with Manfred (can we call you Manny?) on this. The WGAW is incredibly helpful, but I suspect they're mostly working from home at this point; I know my comms dept....

Odd Couple Analysis

Jeff's mention of THE ODD COUPLE (the original) got me thinking and I looked into the show on IMDB. Here are some basic stats:

1970-1975

Re: Amount of characters for Sitcom - Minimum / Maximum?

By existential I meant that you can't kill off a main character like you can in a feature, or substantially change their situation. You're absolutely right about getting back to the status...

Re: Amount of characters for Sitcom - Minimum / Maximum?

You're heading in the right direction, but I think the Protagonist/Antagonist model might be throwing you off. A novel or a feature often has a single main character plus helpers here and there, and...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

Where it gets murky is with writer-producers and writer-directors. I've heard there are many hyphenates that are still being repped in their non-writer capacities by their former big4 agents.

So the bottom line is that no pigs or demons were harmed in the making of the New Testament. That's so good to know. ;)
