Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Is the "overcome a significant challenge in their lives" true for the Impact Netflix application this time?

Looking over the questions there's nothing that would indicate that. Unless I'm missing...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Having your project pitched to Netflix by a HUGE prodco like Imagine is not a small thing. It's a very large thing.

The application, being free, means anyone can apply. They've got to filter...

Re: StoryRocket

Uh... yes they are! The feedback here is fine if you're hacking out a logline or concept, but no one is going to read your whole script and give you global comments.

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

The category for this entry is for a large-scale family action-adventure, and they're using Pirates of the Caribbean and Night at the Museum as examples, so I'd say feature.



Those sections are...

Re: Competition Entry Numbers?

I think its a question of which set of readers you get.

For the Nicholl the quarters are the top 5 percent. You can have a script get quarterfinalist one year and not the next -- that's got nothing...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

This is true.

I think the pushback and confusion is that the category they are asking for is "Large scale family action-adventure" along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

You're asking two different questions.

I'm assuming pitching to Netflix (one company) is better for social-distancing than pitching to a hundred different companies, all crammed into one room,...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

I think it's because of the Coronavirus -- they can't have writers moving to LA and meeting to work because everyone is supposed to be social-distancing.

If no one has to re-locate to LA, then they...

Re: Plough through or correct as you go?

Haha. I used to use "Guy" a lot. Main Guy. Other Guy. Guy's friend. Guy's boss. Guy's girlfriend. It was too many Guys, so I switched to letters.

Re: Plough through or correct as you go?

I'll write an entire minor character's arc -- 3 or 5 or 7 scenes entirely before I've written Act One. Or I'll write a couple scenes from Act One then skip to Act Three and write a sequence that I...

Interesting how other peoples' brains work.

I write scenes by hand until I've written about 50 percent of the script, before I start typing anything. I always write out of sequence. I use the most...

Re: Writer gets fired from upcoming Law & Order spinoff for controversial comments

This.

Not sure what qualifies one for badass status, but John Boyega at the BLM protest/march in London seems pretty close.
