Re: New Ideas

Hmm. I liked your summary and “What if?” scenario better than the listed description of the book. Some legitimate, well-educated reviewers panned it, too, which, in this case, is enough for me to say...

Re: New Ideas

Re: Raiders of the None Arc

Elliott’s arc is that Elliott grew up a little more because of his encounter with E.T. He overcomes his initial fear of the creature; that’s growth for a young boy in this story of coming...

Re: New Ideas

Probably some avant-garde French director in the 1930s or ’40s. I’m sure the 1960s and ’70s were full of “experimental” filmmaking, too. To find the answer, we’d...

Re: Picking Right Idea

Envy me if you like. For now, yes, that’s my goal; to create well-crafted screen stories that entertain me is the pursuit. I write stories I would like to see and would pay to see as films....

Re: Picking Right Idea

Ah, but my goal is to sell a *story*, not only a script. This ties in directly with what Jeff Lowell commented about choosing a poorly executed great (story) idea over a well-executed mediocre...

Re: Writer's portfolio websites

For a writer to have copyrighted material on a website for potential producers, managers, or representatives to view can save time by skipping a step. It’s also a chance for the writer to put forth a...
