Re: Dupree Miller

Yeah, currently he appears to be repping ONE writer, and that's the dude who penned Bone Tomahawk.

Re: Dupree Miller

Oops. I guess I didn't catch that part. I have been told there are some screenplay literary agents/managers in the Dallas area, and that I just have to find them. Thought this might be one of them.

Re: How do you know itís time to fire your manager? (first manager)

If t'were me (which t'isnt), I would begin looking for a new manager while continuing to work with this one. Then, when you find a manager that you feel will work not just FOR you but WITH you, THEN...

Re: Me or the WGA?

That's a good idea. I do pay for an IMDbPro account, but that was originally to keep my headshot up.

If it doesn't exist already, someone should make a list of all the companies who are accepting...

Re: Me or the WGA?

Hmm. That's really encouraging. I've always taken the manager-scouting route. Going directly to the source is interesting. I know that Brian Koppelman - at the time, a complete unknown - famously...

Re: Me or the WGA?

While I can't judge the quality of your work not having reviewed it - your observed drop-off is almost assuredly due to the WGA fiasco.

I just got this email back from a rather high profile manager...

Re: Is this a "soft pass"?

But aren't ALL the reps going to say the same thing until this crap is resolved? It appears that NO one is taking on new writers right now. I try to do something every weekday to try to find a...

Re: WGA Firings - is this the worst time to try to find a manager/agent

That's AWESOME. Now we can have SOME agents back to work. Let's hope they're the first domino.

Re: Is this a "soft pass"?

Actually (and ironically), he responded today and told me to check in with him again when the agents are back to work. He was responding to my "thank you anyway" email response. I was as gracious and...

Well thanks, but I just heard back from him. Not the greatest news, as you can see:

Is this a "soft pass"?

Just got this email back from a rather high profile manager who requested a full script from me. (Mind you, this was shortly before the WGA mess)

Re: i hate this thread title

Definitely have moved on. In talks with another manager now.

So -- your OWN agent was an ass to you whenever you asked him anything? I don't see how that helps the "client-rep" relationship in the...

I have a script that has two different particular songs listed as playing in the scenes. One of which plays twice and the title is actually the title of my screenplay.

Will a contest disqualify me...

Re: Is not living in LA or NY a dealbreaker for managers & agents?

I apologize if this came out sounding snotty. It was not in the least intended to be so.

To be honest, the Los Angeles-area is where I've always wanted to be. But sadly, my circumstances have always...

Re: -- is this the worst time to try to find a manager/agent - or the best?

Both understood and appreciated.

I'm just wondering about whether or not this is the best timing, or should I simply wait until a resolution occurs? I worry that all "new business" may be...

Obviously, this is an unstable time for writers and representatives alike.

I don't want to attempt to take advantage of a precarious situation.

Is anyone here following the "Friday the 13th" legal battle?

Re: Whitney Davis

Interesting. Could you elaborate a bit more on the Twitter interaction? Was she snarky? Defensive? Evasive? Any specifics would be helpful. She is reading one of my screenplays now. Thanks.
