Re: Why I Hate Script Contests And So Should You

So Stage 32's isn't worth the entry fee?

I had to block e-mails from that site a few months back because they were inundating me with pitch sales slots! Writers can pay to pitch to a producer,...

How much do TV programmes sell for?

Finding figures to estimate a film's expected gain isn't too difficult - I could get a rough idea based on genre, budget and star/s (or lack of) for all of the major territories, but I can't seem to...

Re: What's holding you back?

The sheer drudgery of sending query letters (especially when I seriously doubt anyone will ever reply) gets a gold star in laziness.

Spending too long trying to find a manager only to realise that...

Re: Help with some addys please!!!

e-mail addresses for Lisa Callamaro Lit. aren't listed on IMDbPro; does this mean that they're not open to new writers or simply that IMDbPro doesn't have the info?

Any e-mails for Lisa Callamaro...

Re: Screenwriter sues popular producer and loses

Right, gotcha.

An NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) is a business contract which prevents exactly what it sounds like: talking about whatever project/s were mentioned in the NDA.

Sorry for...

Re: Screenwriter sues popular producer and loses

Yes, my apologies, I read this first reply as the producer being the female in question and then the response under the same illusion.

Okay, so it's since been cleared up: a writer pitches for an...

Re: Reps that don't dig your work

I've asked this before, but I got mixed results. I also feel that the question is appropriate now for the OP:

Is it better to mention the previous rep' in queries, and if so, what do you write...

Re: Option advice please

^Great post.

Seriously, if someone came up to you and said, "Hey, you're a great lawyer, how about you come and work for my company for six months, completely unpaid," how would you reply?

Re: Screenwriter sues popular producer and loses

I'm not trying to derail the thread with a n00b question, but how does making the producers sign a non-disclosure agreement play into all this?

What really stumped me was how you all made it seem...

Re: Producer attachment request. Should I?

Congratulations on the high score - definitely use it as a calling card!

I've never used the Blacklist myself, but despite a lot of...

Re: Strange feedback

Apologies for the belated response.

To be honest, I don't write comedies so I can't advise on them too much. It could be that the 120 page thing was a polite excuse, but take a look at some...

Re: Strange feedback

Firstly, you were lucky to get set up with that dude, so don't burn any bridges - you should have more than one script and an idea based on a IP you don't own anyway.

120 pages?
Well, to be honest,...

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

See, this is what's getting me: should I write in my queries that I was repped by - I'd rather not mention because of the bad experience - or name the manager?

In my latest query draft, I wrote...

Re: Smart Entertainment

Re: Point agent

Does both mean giving up 20% in stead of 10, or would you be signed to both but whoever gets you the job gets the cut?

As a writer, that would be ideal... but I'm pretty sure it won't work out that...

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

Re: A question about police leave

Thanks.
I really couldn't find anything to do with suggested or forced leave, and whether or not it would be full or reduced pay, but I got around it all anyway.

Re: I need a lawyer

Congratulations thus far, please keep us apprised.

I have to admit though, as a big fan of Asian cinema, did you have to get your script translated before you sent it out?
