Re: Martin Scorsese's Op-Ed on Marvel and Cinema

When I first heard Scorsese's comments about Marvel movies, I thought he was being a little bit of jerk by taking a jab at his fellow filmmakers’ movies. I didn’t think it was the...

Re: Dolemite Is My Name

I wouldn't quite call this a quintessential situation of where the script was actor's bait. Obviously, that happens and needs to happen for most movies to get a greenlight; but Eddie originally met...

Re: PSA To All Film Schools Students and Graduates

Ah. So via friends who tell you about what their life out here is like, you are making these blanket comments. Okay. Well, I don't know what they are doing or who they are working for, but it's a...

Re: PSA To All Film Schools Students and Graduates

One thing which might help folks to know is, what producers, directors and/or writers have you worked for here in LA? Did you work on features? Did you work on TV shows? For how long each time? What...

Re: PSA To All Film Schools Students and Graduates

Okay....

Right around the time I was finishing up film school I got hooked up with an Emmy winning TV director – an actor turned director. I worked for him for a season and we did about 6...

I'll leave my response for now as +1 to JS90 and Northbank, though I will quickly note this: I have loved and continue to love my experiences working in the business and was paid more than any...

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

Understood. And again, extra details like this are good to know and keep in mind, especially when people write me.

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

Ah, okay. Interesting. So because there are no regulations like here, then are they simply managers who act like agents in the UK since there are no laws stopping them from procuring work? Thus, one...

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

As others have wisely noted, eight years is far, far, far too long. In the vast majority of cases eight months could be considered too long, unless of course there are some extenuating circumstances:...

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

Just to be safe, 42 is a management company. We've always listed them as such, but more importantly and from their own site:

Re: Send Follow-Up or Wait?

Definitely follow up with the assistant. Don't be a pest, of course; but it's possible the assistant forgot. It's easy to get overwhelmed with a lot going on.

As a general rule of thumb, I work off...

Re: Benefits Of Getting An Entertainment Lawyer Before Agent or Manager

I wouldn't say there is some grand benefit, particularly in terms of a "before" scenario. Not a bad thing by any means; but I wouldn't necessarily look at it as beneficial, as much as a good step....

Merrick has heard all of this ad nauseam now. It's been discussed almost endlessly in other threads.

Re: Film Connection Limited

This is a turn key-operation. They don't make narrative movies nor would they take material in. They provide rental studio facilities, equipment and crew all in one place. Look at their Portfolio...

Re: Option contract question - WGA or no??

Re: Release form - standard or concerning?

I don't want to note something folks already know, but no one asks real reps to sign releases since there is a much greater guarantee the rep and the rep's clients aren't going to try to sue or do...

Re: First Project

Sure. Query away. But if the script is no good, you might burn bridges. I never said, don't. I even noted, "If you really feel driven to try to get a rep this early, then focus on managers." Just...

This is not only for Alexander but for anyone out there writing, trying to find a repping, querying producers, etc.

Re: Meeting with Manager via BL

Yes. I read loglines all the time -- just read 300. I don't want a script sent unless I at least like the logline. One has to start somewhere and that's a good place.

First, a Windows laptop should do perfectly well for you. You can custom order them or you can easily go to a big box store and buy one there.

Windows 10 will do the trick. Get at least 8GB of...
