Re: An Open Letter to Franklin About the Black List

Disallowing anything scoring lower than a 7 from being hosted is a completely unworkable situation. I know people who have scored a 5 on their first eval and then a 7 or an 8 on their second. Your...

Re: Black List Score Patterns

THIS. After sitting through a year of people complaining about how their Black List scores don't match what they believe they should have gotten, I can't believe we're attacking writers who were...

Re: Black List Score Patterns

And if those scripts really are good, what is the problem? The goal of the site is to highlight exemplary writing. This is one means by which it's accomplished.

Anyone really worried that this is...

Re: Black List Score Patterns

How is it a shady trick to tell someone who said, "I like this script, I just can't get it made here," that "Hey, there's a place where your opinion of the script can do some good outside of your...

Re: Black List Score Patterns

No it's not. Because there's nothing stopping those other 18 people from rating it of their own accord.

Re: Blacklist Secret Shopping Experience

Help me out here, because I'm really having trouble grasping why it's a bad thing that scripts are routed to readers who have stated a preference for those specific genres.

Having a reader familiar...

Re: Blacklist Secret Shopping Experience

If you don't see that a rating of 7 and a rating of 1 are vastly different and provide a great deal more information to the site's users, then you fundamentally misunderstand how the site operates.

Yeah, but Sanjaya was also utterly unlike anyone out there and he was getting attention in a way that suggested an audience might find him compelling. He's the crazy polarizing outlier.

Re: Blacklist Secret Shopping Experience

They're explicitly told NOT to judge on that criteria. They don't second guess what other people MIGHT think of the script. They are to evaluate it based on their own professional judgement.

Re: Blacklist Secret Shopping Experience

Agree with all of this. As a reader, I saw plenty of scripts that had competent structure, adequate characters, premises that could support a movie. So yes, in an objective sense, they might have...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Two really good points made here. It's easy to forget that this debate about scores is largely using "outliers" as evidence of flaws in the system. Most of the time, the Black List readers are...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

I aggressively disagree with the Pass/Consider/Recommend suggestion. I think it's really helpful to both the writer and potential readers just how "hard" a Pass the reader intends. A score of 1...

Possibly the most eloquent deconstruction of this issue I've seen on DDP. Spot-on. Puts my baseball analogy to shame.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

A pitcher tosses one across the plate. The instant it leaves his hand, can you predict the outcome?

If you can't predict the outcome, does that mean the outcome is so random that it's just as likely...

You can't disprove a negative. Prove to me you're not a troll that hasn't been here before. Prove to me you haven't anonymously harassed other writers through email. You can't.

Or you could just purchase two reads at once if you're concerned that one read might stick you with a lower score.

Re: TV/episodic hosting on the BL starts today!!!
