Fade In Mobile

The interface is much improved.

However I canít get it to export files to Dropbox or google drive on iOS. Anyone else have similar issue?

Re: Downsizing

Re: Normal or Not (Managers)

Re: When your manager says you're "holding back."

Speak directly to the manager about it. Ask for clarification, specific examples.

Never be afraid of asking your manager a simple question. Talking to a manager is like talking to a regular person,...

Re: Blacklist's "Scriptbook"

But it's not ridiculous. This new service is right in line with the Backlist pay site core identity, which is all about fleecing aspiring writers for money. You have to look past all the misleading...

Re: Blacklist's "Scriptbook"

I have been berated on this board over the years for exposing the truth about the Blacklist pay services.

The truth is and always has been that at its core the Blacklist pay site is nothing but a...

Re: Experience with the Blcklst and first evaluation

High praise feels good, doesn't it?

It feels so good it makes you want to spend more money, doesn't it?

The carrot looks so close you can almost taste it.

High praise and mediocre score is a...

Re: Manager or Agent First?

In this case it appears you are using the term 'collaborate' to mean you want someone to write a script for you but you either don't want to pay them or more likely, can't afford to pay them.

Re: Potential Manager Wants 3 Year Contract

By 'protect herself', she means she doesn't want to risk putting time in. She's not willing to risk her time nor her money, but you're expected to risk way more time and effort without protecting...

Re: Potential Manager Wants 3 Year Contract

Get a lawyer to look at contract before signing anything.

Make sure there is an 'out clause' so that you can get out of the contract at anytime with say a 30 day notification.

Without an 'out...

Re: Dr. Strange is an Awesome Adventure

Snooze fest.

These special Westerners are the Masters of a mystical art originating in the Far East. There is one Asian master but he is relegated to a lesser supporting role. Sound familiar?

Re: What's my next move?

Is there an offer on the table? If there's 'real' money involved, look for a rep and lawyer. If it's a low or no money deal, then I'd hold off on contacting agents and you may have to pay for an...

Re: Are managers baised.

Different managers prefer different types of projects and writing styles. Shop around. What has worked for one writer may not work for another.

It's kind of like asking what kind of men do women...

Re: Flash

He suffers from the same problem as Toby Maguire as Spider-Man. The problem is a meek sounding younger voice.

In the case of Maguire, his whiny voice ruined the witty edginess inherent in the...

Re: See WHO evaluated you on Blacklist?

That is something the Blacklist keeps secret because The Blacklist believes that most if not all writers are maniacs who will try and stalk the people who review their scripts. Although the Blacklist...

Re: BLACKLIST score - 7. Now what?

It means it's probably not a good idea to give someone the power to assign an arbitrary numeric value to your work. Creative writing doesn't neatly break down into numeric categories unless one sets...
