Re: Malcolm Spellman Falcon Winter Soldier

Malcolm is great. When he was on Twitter he would joke around with everyone. If you can get to Austin hang with him.

Re: Franklin Leonard

Homer is more my level, drinks beer, watches TV, is late to work, has a strange boss, etc. I don't know about those other two guys.

Re: Franklin Leonard

How about making a plan where you displace one or more of the top guys. Mazin, Fey, August, Lowell, Haas, Spellman, Talbott, Frank, etc. I think you'll find it a much easier focus.

Re: Bring yourself to your scripts

The Jack Lemmon thing is so ridiculous. AA was invented by a priest to increase followers and in doing so increase revenue stream to the church.

Edited to enlighten: The church is about money....

Re: Pilot Development

The Simpson's spec script is great and only 39 pages or so. I can do that. Or is it now a days one needs to write an original pilot?

I'm almost there. I'm sprinting for last place.

Re: Fun short screenplay contest, Sep 7 deadline

No. The worst would be you fit right in a bunch of vanilla writers.


On second thought depat writes his entries wearing nothing but a kilt. That's what I've heard, anyways.

Re: Shout if you're interested

I think my joke backfired or farted. My script is just about finished has in finland etc. should have been english.

Re: Shout if you're interested

I thought Writer's Funk were the strong musky juices I find myself sitting in after failing for hours to come up with a story.

Re: Shout if you're interested

I was just in the middle of my "Can't think of anything" thing.


I'll slink off into the shadows now filled with shame regret and self loathing.
