Re: If Beale Street Could Talk

Finally got to see this a little over a year late - I know, I know.

Re: Help with possible agreement for representation

You're right. I'm not saying what you said was wrong. I'm saying your not noting the full story. When you post something like what you said, that is misleading I feel. Not awful. Not terrible. Not...

Re: Help with possible agreement for representation

But that's still not enough. I've talked to lawyers about this. Don't just work off the whole "auto receive" notion, simply because you created/wrote something.

Re: Option amount

I will offer this as a "guide" for now. As you allude to, you should be paid somewhere around roughly 3% of the film's budget. Now, they are not going to pay you that much, in this particular case,...

Re: Logistics of Manager Meetings

1) Was there a receptionist at a front desk who greeted you when you walked in? If so, did the receptionist offer you something to drink? If so, what (water/coffee/other)?

Re: 1917

No one was doing 40 minute takes, of course. As you can see/learn from the video below, they rehearsed and rehearsed and rehearsed. They built sets specifically to allow for filming. They put an...

Re: What's the scene like now?

Amazon, Netflix and Hulu are focusing on established writers. They have the money so they can afford the "best." So even with more TV series & movies for "TV" being made, from what I've seen in...

Re: Possible Stolen Script

I would suggest contacting a lawyer first in a situation like this. Did anything actually get stolen? Who knows? Maybe. But very possibly not, too. Similar to almost exact ideas do come up -...

Re: ICM email, partners or talent?

Re: Auto-BioPics Specs Sells More?

Re: New York Is Better Than LA
