Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

I have always thought of Jeff more as more of a Mr. Woodman type myself.

Re: With reps home now isolating - is this a great time or bad time to query?

I really think people need to divorce themselves from this idea of a good or bad time to query. It's all just conjecture and baloney. The strength of your logline and your script are what matters a...

Re: Uncut Gems

Irony alert.

SundownInRetreat demeans my criticism that Howard's character doesn't undergo any change in the film.

Moments later, being critical of the film: "Howard had no arc."

Re: Marketing and Distribution Strategy

There aren't really a lot of filmmakers on this board, so I would suggest you seek out alternative resources more geared towards those who produce their own work.

And BTW your restatement of the...

Tangerine

Finally checked out this indie darling. Acclaimed film. Sucked. Apparently if you feature marginalized characters and shoot on an I-phone nothing else matters. Hard pass.

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad

I was Top 50 in the LP a couple years back. I didn't get anything much out of that but I do appreciate the way it's run and entered this year, but did not make the cut. As with most any contest...

Re: Uncut Gems

I dunno. Maybe so, but IMO tragedy implies a sense of pity or sorrow or what "might have been," but for me I felt nothing. His character is not only (self) destructive, but also I would argue a...

Re: Uncut Gems

Finally got to see this. I give it very high marks for its frenetic pacing and intensity from start to finish, and Sandler deserves every bit of the praise he's received for his performance. ...

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

There's nothing wrong with your examples, so I'd attribute it to the subjectivity of the reader or readers and move on. Same can be said of the poster who deems your work "a boring read" based on a...

Err, United Talent is not Untitled Entertainment. Also, a Google search can get you what you need.

Re: Parasite

I liked it quite a lot. Entertaining from start to finish, and I love that it defies genre compartmentalization. It's funny, it's thrilling and suspenseful, and its dramatic, all in one.

Re: Amazon Prime Direct

I do, but mine, THE TOUCHSTONE, is managed through a distributor so I am not privy to their experience, only my own as creator. They seem to pay promptly and obviously have a huge reach. Like any...

Re: A Note about Notes

Re: Release form - standard or concerning?

You just have to hold your nose and sign unless you think they seem shady.

As a writer trying to break in, your job is to get read, not create obstacles to your success.

Re: Horror Movies

I'm not much of a fan, but I too would count the original HALLOWEEN as the best of the best.
