Re: First ATA agency breaks ranks

You're right AnyOtherName it is a con, but until the most powerful ego driven people who fought for years to get to the top walk away from the top 4 agencies, it's going to be impossible to...

Re: First ATA agency breaks ranks

Kaplan-Stahler

It was actually 8 film deals and 21 TV deals... I looked too quickly -- but I was just saying that all these small places can join the WGA side of things, but unfortunately the big...

Re: Formerly Repped

I just threw out the title, but now I'm going to throw out first logline that comes to mind and maybe we all should do the same.

Re: Formerly Repped

I just think of first thing that comes to mind and DD and BALLS OUT was a huge part of this site and honestly I thought GucciXXX was a member of that squad in disguise. Robotard forever!

Re: Formerly Repped

I find comfort that no one cares. Seems easier to move forward. They shouldn't care. Maybe it doesn't matter as it's not like I had a hit movie in 1994 and haven't worked since. Maybe they would care...

Re: Formerly Repped

So Doc -- did you mention your past to current manager at all? Or only as you got to know each other?

I did query in emails

And I think that did...

Re: Formerly Repped

Thanks.

Also my writing partner and I made money via an assignment with producers WME introduced us too, however, it was embarrassing then, but worse now as they are based in Russia. The jokes were...

Formerly Repped

I've been formerly repped and others have too, so if I land a new rep, I'll have to debate do I tell them about my past life with my writing partner or pretend it never happened?

How do you balance...

Re: Neighbor... producer/director intros

Re: Managers -- What Is and Is Not An Ideal Relationship

I have to say there is no perfect manager and the same manager who one person loves, someone else hates.

I was with legit managers and it did not work out for me. And others would swear by them....

Re: Need Some Advice...

I would say your best case is to query with the next spec that is in the same genre as Tracker and Wasteland that you said would be ready in a few months. One you said Taken/Salt with female lead,...

Re: Managers -- What Is and Is Not An Ideal Relationship

I had 3 managers and most communication was through email. Phone calls were rare. I wasn't well repped I guess.

My question for the writers who seem to have these strong relationships -- was it that...

Re: Residuals???

What I always wondered, who is in charge of residuals? I hear people get checks for 3 cents for old movies they worked on... but as I imagine the man hours to do all that work, track all those people...

Re: You're a producer, fo realz???

Well I agree should be that way and I'd argue the most successful people are the ones that respond to emails from everyone the same way. That's why they are successful.

I agree with above too from the GhostXXX! I posted about craft, but hook is often used with high concept or elevator pitch terms and more. That's why all this stuff drives me mad because not everyone...

Re: What is a hook and do I need one?

Not how I see it. It's more into marketing part of the screenplay that the writer should consider always. The audience. Picture 10 scripts are sitting on a pile, how are you going to hook the reader...

Re: What is a hook and do I need one?

Re: What is a hook and do I need one?
