Re: Writer needed for Collaboration in L.A. area

How "small" is the upfront payment?

And what do you bring to the table other than the treatment?

Do you have IMDB credits? Industry contacts?

It sounds like you're asking someone to do 90% of the...

Re: Little Studio Films

ANY "producer" or rep who responds to a query by trying to get money from you for any reason is to be shunned and outed.

info on Shawn Svoboda and Turnaround Films?

Any info on them?

Very little online. They seem to have a Christian orientation.

Displaying Final Draft 9 Scriptnotes in PDF

Is there a way to display Final Draft 9 Scriptnotes in a PDF when I send a draft to someone who doesn't use Final Draft?

Final Draft and MacOS High Sierra - problem?

I heard on Twitter that Final Draft 9 and below isn't compatible with MacOS High Sierra.

Can anyone confirm/deny?

Annoyed that I upgraded to 9 not that long ago and now it seems I may need to pay...

Re: Slugline for an open-top jeep?

Thanks for all of the answers... I think. :)

To clarify, we're looking at a number of people in a jeep, and the camera will switch from one face to another as they speak. So at least some of the...

Slugline for an open-top jeep?

What slug would you use for people riding around in an open-top military jeep? (Same issue for convertible car etc.)

They're IN the vehicle, but it's not an enclosed space.

INT. JEEP?

Re: La La Land

I adored it and admired it and it made me cry. And I'm usually a hard case when it comes to "sentimental" movies.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

By "sermonizing," I mean that a script takes a theme (hope, love, whatever) and has characters give multiple SPEECHES about that theme.

It's OK (in fact, somewhat expected) to have ONE speech...

Re: Passengers

I agree with the points made by both nmstevens and Bitter Script Reader.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie, despite its flaws.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I think there's TONS of overt sermonizing in R1 -- but it's not about diversity, it's about "hope."

I don't have anything against hope. I do object to dialogue that consists almost entirely of...

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Interesting... Of course, there weren't any women involved in creating Leia.

Leigh Bracket (female) only came in for Empire.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Interesting... how you felt about Rogue, I felt about TFA.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I saw the villain in Guardians as kind of a commentary on cliche comic book villains. He was a straight-faced parody of a villain -- because the story wasn't ABOUT heroes vs. villains. Part of the...
