Re: Not responding back after reading script

Don't be so negative. Perhaps they loved it, but died.

Your wife and I have been "overly happy lovers" for 23 years now. No need to get worried.

Re: Picking Right Idea

King Kong is relatable. Who doesn't have some unwanted body hair?

Re: Sex!!!!

"Plough on", "fleshing out each point", "what you wanna see along the way", "inbetween these two models", "need to be filled" !!!? Are you sure you're not talking sex?

Re: Horror movie length

Okay, 53 lines per page would be a reduction too far, but if you've got more than 55 lines per page then apparently it would be acceptable to reduce that to 55.

Although, ultimately, just write more...

Re: Trim Down That Spec

Need to trim down your spec? Then simply scrap the first half of your first act, Tolstoy. You really only need one scene of your protagonist's normal life before the inciting incident occurs.

Re: Midpoint

Surely adding an Aunt Edna, alive or dead at any point, isn't going to fix a 'vacation movie' script in which the vacation still hasn't started by the midpoint?
