Re: Anyone else apply for the Writers Lab "women over 40" retreat?

I don't have a problem with someone having credits.

But I do believe these competitions should be completely blind, start to finish.

Why would you hold such an important competition and have...

Re: Anyone else apply for the Writers Lab "women over 40" retreat?

Re: The Counselor (Ridley Scott/Cormac McCarthy Full Trailer)

One of the worst films of the last ten years. Script was bad, bad, bad. Dialogue was awful. Overwritten. Scenes that were pointless. And, no real drama. Everything happens offscreen. Everything...

I have a question about passes.

Would a manager ever pass on a really good/great script for any reason whatsover?

Re: IFP Emerging Narrative

Sorry, forgot to answer one question. Preproduction has nothing to do with Emerging Narrative. It's about the scripts.

Re: IFP Emerging Narrative

Re: The Future of Screenwriting

Forget about agents? Try managers instead?

I have an agent for one area of my writing, and she fills in when I need to send scripts out, but I'm tired of being repped by someone who can't do more for me, especially since I'm focussing a lot...

Re: What to do about a horrible horrible read from an assistant?

As a long-time reader, there were scripts that came in that were not really right for what the company was looking for. So you have to justify the pass with more than: this is not right for us. You...

Re: Did IMDBpro kill searching for lit managers/agents?

To further elaborate, this project really started out as a play by Lucy Alibar, who is not from New Orleans. She's a New York City-based playwright, by way of Georgia.

Re: Does the WGA have any power?

The WGA is well aware that this is going on and that it's getting worse and worse. Once you start chipping away at the MBA, eventually it won't be worth the paper its written on.

Re: WGA signatories

WGA, East doesn't use a point system, by the way. Move to New York and you'll have an easier time joining. You still have to be hired by a signatory, but points aren't involved. I'm sure the WGA,...

Re: Managers for Older Actresses a Hindrance?

I think there's that struggle that goes on with actresses in the 50ish range. So many of them look a lot younger, so they want to hold on to that for as long as possible. The guys that age aren't...
