Why aren't more people talking about The Americans?

I binge watched 4 seasons this year and it's one of the best shows I've seen. Over 4 seasons it's been extremely solid and consistent. It's always moving in a new direction and is rarely...

Major film festivals take a lot of reps...

Re: Am I crazy?

Be open with the producer about how you're feeling. Tell him exactly what you said in this post.

He might react negatively. Then tell him you want to part ways. Hopefully you've been working on...

Re: What to Expect in first General at studio

+100

I found the water thing to be strange advice as well.

I just talk to the assistant like an actual human being. Hopefully that's enough.

Re: Does going against your manager mean you should get a new manager?

It's both. The latest spec I wrote was a combination of an article he showed me for inspiration and an idea I already had boiling in my head. If the company likes it, they'll start trying to package...

Does going against your manager mean you should get a new manager?

I knew the kind of manager my manager was when I signed up with him. He doesn't produce but his company does. And they try to get their writers to write stuff that align with the stuff they want to...

Re: Landing paid work with your agent

About a year for me. He sent my script to a producer who liked it. I met with her and she told me about one of their projects. I pitched for it and got it.

My script wouldn't have gotten into that...

Re: Can't Find Representation on a Deal

Re: Can't Find Representation on a Deal

FWIW, every lawyer I talked to before I was repped charged an hourly fee to go over a simple option contract. And yes one of them asked for a 2k retainer. I doubt any lawyer would go for 5% for an...

Re: Negotiating Option On My Own

This is true. The only lawyers you'll be able to get will charge you hourly. Expect to pay 500-1500 depending on how much work you want them to do and how long the option is. This will probably...
