Re: Franklin Leonard

It would only be 6 pages if we took out all the comments from people complaining about how long it is.

Re: Austin 2019

I get the point you're trying to make, and it's probably a valid one for most people, but if you have a script that does well in A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, and then P says it's no...

Re: Austin 2019

I got an email from AFF last night telling me my script did not make it to the 2nd round (I think the '2nd Round' is like the top 2000 scripts or something ridiculous like that)

which was pretty...

Re: Doing well in too many contests is a red flag for reps?

You got me.

You know they say that there's no such thing as a 'Nichol' script, and the readers are just as open to any genre as they are to quirky indie dramadies and SERIOUS SUBJECTS, but I don't...

Re: Doing well in too many contests is a red flag for reps?

Yes, you. Definitely you.

I'm trying to punch up your insult for you. I think "I want to put it in my diary" works better.

Better still "I want to bring it up in my next therapy session."...

Re: Doing well in too many contests is a red flag for reps?

Since you haven't entered and don't know for sure how your scripts would do, this is all speculation anyway.

But I would say the writer whose scripts NEVER place has a better chance than the one...

Re: A Kinder, Gentler Netflix

Full disclosure-- Netflix passed on a script of mine because their algorithm told them to (I was told this by an exec off the record), so I have a kind of vendetta against them where I plan on...

Wow. I can't believe how many people here either don't understand what Jake meant, or are pretending they don't understand as an excuse to bash reps, bash contests, or both.

Re: Franklin Leonard

A couple of days ago I noticed that the 2 most highly rated scripts on the BL were by the same writer.

I also noticed that neither script had a reader endorsement or any written reviews. Instead,...

Re: A Kinder, Gentler Netflix

Also, if they bought Paramount they would be able to release 3-4 films a year in theaters -- just like a real movie studio.

And then develop maybe a drama series or two for the Paramount TV...

Re: A Kinder, Gentler Netflix

For the amount of money Netflix spends on a years worth of middling stand up comedy and forgettable features they could have bought Paramount Pictures.

That would have given them one of the best...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Hmmm. Not sure what to make of this. I pay $25 a month.

Maybe they've recently changed and any scripts uploaded AFTER 2018 are 30, and everything before is grandfathered?? Who knows...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Ha! Is that what someone actually said? That's even worse than saying nothing at all.

I mean, you CAN do a search for 'Reader Endorsed' scripts. That means the script has received at least 2 scores...

Re: Franklin Leonard

It's 1 script with 31 paid reviews. I know this because all 31 are posted. Reading them amounts to a master class in how to let someone down gently -- I am not naming the title or the author,...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I don't think I've ever said anything really negative about the Blacklist -- I'm all for free market economies and due diligence and all that good stuff, but

I took the free evaluations because they came with free hosting. It's a package deal. I guess you could just keep your 8's and hope for some additional love from the industry folks, but you'll have...

Re: Shaving pages

I would never ever game the margins or fonts or anything like that.

Basically I go through the script and look for any Action or Dialogue lines that run over into the next line by ONE or TWO words....

Re: Young Guns II proper HD Blu-ray Remaster?

I realize it's unlikely that the OP will see this, but maybe there are other fans of Young Guns 2 here who will give thanks that it has finally been released in HD (as of yesterday).
