Re: On pacing of queries and response times

Fire away. If multiple actually respond then you can worry about telling them.

Re: Advice needed from repped writers (spec related situation)

Would love for you to PM me who this rep is, out of morbid curiosity.

Normally, Iíd say run like hell. But your Chinese Democracy/Avatar development cycle has me all sorts of flummoxed. This just...

Re: Advice needed from repped writers (spec related situation)

This whole situation sounds crazy. Iím also curious about that second script - was this written in the past eight years and he had no idea you were writing it?

Re: Exits and Promotions @ ICM

Re: A Note about Notes

I know it bugs some people but to me “the bad version is...” is a helpful note. It generally sets me on the right path. I’m not a great diagnostician. I barely know if my sh1t is...

Re: First Project

I personally find the “write more!” advice to be a bit tedious and it can come across as a bit pretentious or magic bullet-y, depending on how it is delivered/received. But there’s...

Re: First Project

1) write something else
2) you want a manager, not an agent

Re: Meeting with Manager via BL

To be clear I’ve had plenty of people ask for a bunch of loglines. Hell, that’s your job. But the two times the production side of a large management firm did? Total precursor to spec...

Re: Meeting with Manager via BL

ďShoot him some loglinesĒ is often a red flag if itís just coming from the production side. Iíd wager I know where your meeting was.

My manager set it so my first general was with a close friend exec that he could trust, knew she was the most chill. And it was. After an hour of bs'ing on her couch drinking coffee I realized:

Re: The Crew -- Jeff

Great stuff!

And since heís mentioned in the article, Todd Garnerís podcast is a must listen for writers. Absolutely indispensable to understand how big producers view the current landscape.

My manager is great. I hit the lottery. Big time folks at Gucciís three letter place have been absurdly kind in going to bat for a nobody like me.

Re: How do you make a good impression on that first meeting?
