Re: Australian Writers Guild Minimums

Is the company you're dealing with even a guild signatory? If not, then there's no reason to worry.

I think you should wait until you get a contract in writing, and if it seems like the offer is...

Re: Querying on IMBDpro. Where do I find the producers?

You can use DoneDealPro to find out who has recently bought scripts or closed deals, so it's better than simply a list. I would recommend you subscribe to DoneDealPro AND IMDbpro.

Do Action Scripts like Gravity Have to be 90-120 pages to be a Feature Script?

I know the common metric is 1 minute of page equals 1 minute of film, and a feature screenplay is 90-120 pages.

However, what about survival/action type scripts? Say in a film like Gravity, which...

Re: See WHO evaluated you on Blacklist?
