Re: Picking Right Idea

Cyfress, I showed you with your post #158, accusing Jeff of being a liar and throwing digs at you when that was not accurate. Also, before post #203, you got nasty with Jeff and gave him attitude...

Re: Picking Right Idea

The comments you are citing by Jeff didn't occur until post #203 and on.

"interesting"

Hell no! It was an ugly display by both you and Jeff. It does nothing but sidetrack a great thread and scare...

Re: Picking Right Idea

Jeff's nasty, out-of-line posts didn't start until post #203, which I say was in response to your nasty attitude toward him.

Edited To Add:

Jeff had a right to hit back at you after your post...

I do not do things half-ass. I checked from page 1 on. The facts are the facts.

Re: Picking Right Idea

Cyfress, this wasn't addressed to me, but the truth is it started with you. If Jeff started it, I would not be afraid to say so. Jeff was having a normal discussion with you and you took offense to a...

Re: Picking Right Idea

finalact4, why is it so easy for you to make uniformed blanket statements?

You're so wrong on this. I believe my teen romantic comedy is a mediocre story idea, but I'm writing it not because I...

Re: Picking Right Idea

This is what you told me in the Cyfress vs. Jeff Lowell TV script review challenge, and then -- PUFF, you were gone. You had to take a 1 year sabbatical. I suggest for you to calm down and take a...

From the "Three Act Structure (Part 2)" thread, post #130:

Cyfress says, "You should never get upset about what get says on this board. Even if what you think is a personal attack or rude."

Okay, docgonzo, you got me. I'll confess. I'm very jealous of Jeff Lowell. I want his life.

Re: Picking Right Idea

Yes, I agree, but my point was that quality writing like those Low Concept scripts that I mentioned could get a non-pro writer attention either from a contest, referral, contacts, relationships,...

Re: Picking Right Idea

In the 22 pages of this thread, who said the story idea isn't important?

If a writer wants to sell a screenplay to a Major Studio, then his best chance to achieving this is coming up with a High...

Bono said, "For instance, a bad idea was starting this thread."

Re: Picking Right Idea

Cyfress, I think you didn't get my point on this topic. And I'm writing a non-high concept teen romantic comedy, which I'm sure some will say the story idea is derivative, but I like the journey of...

Re: Picking Right Idea

This thread is about picking the right idea. To write a great story idea. Who judges which story idea is the right idea? Who judges what story idea is great or not? Buyers? Agents? The writer? Done...

Re: Picking Right Idea

Jeff and members, this post of mine isn’t about singling Jeff out and attacking him about his JOHN TUCKER script. The movie worked. It was a commercial success. I’m just using the story idea as an...

Re: Picking Right Idea

“... I come up with one great one every two or three years.”

How are you defining “great”?

I consider “great” as being of high art: weighty message (theme), deep, rich characters and story, i.e.,...

This is what they say, but they're human.

I believe, in this case, the commercial potential of the material takes priority, but I do believe other variables, i.e., race, age, gender, etc. do carry...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

It may seem lopsided for the writer to receive the WGA minimum of $50,000 to $100,000 for a potential film with a budget of $75 to $100,000,000, but there are certain risks and benefits for both...
