Re: Reputable agents/managers charging a fee to read

Well, Kfu3000 it was nice of you to follow up with this reply. I'm still grossed out by Carr's opinions and tactics and think it sends a terrible message to writers, but I respect where you and your...

Re: Reputable agents/managers charging a fee to read

Hahahaha, yep!

I laugh, but I'm also shaking my head at the ridiculousness.

Re: Reputable agents/managers charging a fee to read

Mmhmmmmmmm.

And DangoForth, even just 4 scripts a WEEK (super easy given how many desperate writers there are out there querying him) means he makes a somewhat livable income for a single, childless...

Re: Reputable agents/managers charging a fee to read

So, I watched that latest Scott Carr podcast, and while at a glance his reasons for charging for reads seemed to initially "make sense" due to all the confident razzle dazzle of his explanation -...

Re: Big Little Lies

This show was so incredible. All my predictions came true (knowing nothing of the book) which I guess makes it predictable, but I didn't care. It was a pleasure to watch it all play out. Me thinks it...

Re: Option advice please

That's great in theory, but it doesn't always work like this. I signed a "free option" not long ago with a very reputable producer, while I had a manager (now former) and a lawyer (the latter of whom...

LBI Entertainment?

Obviously they're a MAJOR firm with top tier A-list talent, which says a lot on its own. But what's the word from a writer's perspective? Anyone here repped by them and have any feedback on their...

Shortest & Longest Specs?

In terms of actual page length, I'm curious what are the shortest and longest specs that have ever been sold, and/or wound up on the Blacklist, if any come to mind off the top of your head. Just...

Drama Structure

With the popularity of cable and streaming content, is everyone still writing with traditional act structure to accommodate commercial breaks? So many dramas now no longer follow that format, so...

Re: What to do when reps won't take our your projects?

Same situation for me recently.

Had a manager for a bit. We were never on the same creative page. Sometimes he would even claim a specific concept would never sell or be appealing to the current...

Re: Number of Action Scenes?

I got what you were saying, I just wanted to express a related note, in how I've literally read scripts that a writer labeled as "action" that had like two fist fights. That, IMO does not an action...

Re: Number of Action Scenes?

Number of Action Scenes?

I was thinking about characteristics of the genre today. And out of random curiosity I thought I'd pose this question to everybody (both pros and aspiring):

On average, how many action scenes...

Re: Gotham (Fox)

I love the casting on this show. Definitely noticing a couple break outs that I think will be huge stars some day. Overall, I'm enjoying the series a lot. I dig the style of it, especially in terms...

Re: The Chair -- Starz

I've been watching. Pretty hooked on it, it's a great experiment.

Based on their movie trailers, I could never sit through Shane's film. Ever. There's a difference between toilet humor used...

I used to have the perspective that I need to be paid for any and all work, especially after I got screwed over on my first option. It was a free option. I did 5 huge rewrites (I'm talking a totally...

I'm just glad to see major industry outlets doing this kind of reporting. Perhaps it will knock some sense into some voters. Some.

Re: 2014 Emmy Nominations

Well, this years ceremony was a wash. Nothing but the same shows being handed the top awards. If someone won last year, they won this year. Lazy voting seems the culprit. It's a shame that those who...
