Re: Trapped down on the Spec-Farm

You're not trapped anywhere. You're a willing prisoner with the ability to break out and leave any time you'd like. I know. I was there to a certain extent, too. I never got pulled into the spec farm...

Re: What to do when a collaborator turns on you?

^^this 1000%^^

Re: Walking failure

Re: Agent, Manager, Or Both??

Don't push it. Gena Rowland is 88 years old and probably would take her lead from her son. One rule I've learned from doing this for years is that when people respond with specific requests? They...

Re: Austin 2018

I am very happy for you. One, for the success so far. Two, for sticking with it and not giving up. It took me the same 18 years of working at it before I got my first produced film.... As of this...

Re: Agent, Manager, Or Both??

Managers. They too will ask if it's funded, but will be nicer about it because if it is they can attach themselves as a producer. But... without funding in place the chances of any kind of success...

Re: Amazon Studios

Move on. Amazon's new policies, and this came straight from my agent, are packaged projects from established show runners, established writers, production companies, known producers and directors,...

Re: Lee Stobby (Lee Stobby Entertainment)

We communicated a few times. He asked for a couple of scripts. Didn't hear back for weeks. Then he sent me a private Twitter message passing on me. Which was fine because I didn't stop looking and...

Re: Managers Feedback

Both of those managers passed. It's not much more complicated than that. They did it in what they probably thought was a nice way. Nothing more. If you believe in the content, move on to other...

Re: Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind

Watched it today. It's ok. Pretty surface stuff, but then Robin was as complicated as they come. Still shows you how amazing he was when he was on. I was fortunate enough to see him both on and off...

Re: Amazon Studios

Amazon's open submission policy isn't coming back. It's dead. An experiment that was a multimillion dollar failure. All it did was prove to them that the studio submission policies were the only way...

Re: Pitching as a Lottery

Re: Legal issues on Historical Characters

Perfect advice. Go. Write your script. If Henry the VIII sues you it'll be good publicity, plus in the National Enquirer.

Re: Reputable agents/managers charging a fee to read
