Even when you have reps...

Still hustle for yourself. It’s one of the best pieces of advice I’ve received on this board.

We took a spec out in late fall. Got some passes. A few places kept kicking it up the...

Re: What's the scene like now?

Re: Yes... It is possible to Start a Career Ouside of Los Angeles

As someone who broke in outside of LA, I find one size fits all advice to be absolutely useless.

Re: What's the scene like now?

Thank you!

Re: What's the scene like now?

Youíre conflating two things here. I mean, sure there are genre-y true story stuff. (Open Water as an example, maybe) But broadly speaking in the context of this conversation these two things are...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

Sorry, I was posting at a red light. Gersh sounds like they are signing soon. Is what I was told by someone there today. So who knows...but thatís what they seem to think.

Re: What's the scene like now?

I think multiple might be overstating it at this point. What are those sales for 2019? I might have missed them. Just doesnít reflect the realities of the marketplace, IMO.

Re: What's the scene like now?

Weíre talking specs, not pitches, right? Where are the naked spec sales for anything non-genreíy that isnít made for a price? The contraction in 2019 on that front is not insignificant. Obviously...

Re: What's the scene like now?

Agreed. Thereís just no motivation for them to go back to that model of development, right? Whatís the upside?

For the limited slate of studio releases, it makes total sense to have the necessary...

Re: What's the scene like now?

Good luck get anything mid-budget sold on spec. I donít buy takes like ďKnives Out will mean a shift back to original theatrical content!Ē Not at that price point anyway.

Re: Possible Stolen Script

Based on stories Iíve heard from my manager, you people are far too trusting. Before I was exposed to the industry I assumed everyone one of these ďmy sh1t was stolen!!Ē posts were nonsense. And in...

Re: Possible Stolen Script

My first instinct is to call bs. Of course, I have zero evidence that it is bs. Sure, lawyer up. But out of curiosity, what evidence do you have that it is stolen?

Re: If you have a manager and attorney, do you absolutely need an agent?

DM a link to your script. Iíll take a look and see if it is something I would refer to my manager.

Re: If you have a manager and attorney, do you absolutely need an agent?

Conceptually thatís a tough sell because thereís no hook (as youíve described it here) and it sounds expensive. Donít write a blockbuster. Thatís my two cents.

Re: Star Wars

I loathed TLJ and loved this one. Wondering if this will have more legs than TLJ even though it will open lower. My expectation is higher repeat and better word of mouth over the holiday break.

Iím not a big QT fan at all. Just not my thing. But this one falls in my top 10 of the decade. Possibly top 5.

Being concerned with sale price would seemingly be a high class problem.
