Re: Help with possible agreement for representation

I don't disagree with others impressions that this guy is probably not the serious, legit producer (I guess?) that you want in your corner. That said . . .

If you're an unproduced writer who...

Locke & Key

This comic series has gone through multiple pilot attempts over the years before Netflix finally brought it to life with a full series order. I never read the comics myself (apparently there are...

Re: Jojo Rabbit

Well, putting Taika in the same sentence as Charlie Chaplin is not a comparison I would make. But Great Dictator was made just as WWII had begun and long before the Holocaust itself began, which...

Re: Jojo Rabbit

Re: Jojo Rabbit

I still think about this Village Voice symposium about Schindler's List 25 years ago, which was at least an attempt to tell a "serious" story about the Holocaust. Exponentially more applicable to...

Re: Where to ask questions about US crimina law?

There are a lot of potential criminal liability issues wrapped up in the story you are describing. First, as a real-world matter, no prosecutor is ever going to rely upon or even take the word of a...

Re: A Page-One Rewrite for Free??

A pre-WGA writer is almost never going to get WGA minimums for these kind of gigs. But no legit producer should ever expect to get a writer of value for free. If they don't have $5,000 to throw your...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

Not sure if anyone else has joined Adam McKay in disavowing packaging fees even in his producer role, but many hyphenates signed their overall deals via agents before the firings. I agree the best...

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

I'll leave it to those actually in the guild to opine on the strategic aspects, though it seems far down on the list of pattern demands and not the hill that the majority of members want to die on in...

Re: posting your spec. online?

It worked great for RoboTard 8000 (Tim Talbott & Malcolm Spellman). But I'm not sure how much they expected it to actually sell versus just generating heat and branding them as two funny writers.

Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

But game theory-ing it out, the "Big 4" is really a big two of WME and CAA. If you're UTA and ICM (and don't have lion's share of packaging revenue as it stands anyway) there's at least a...

Assuming Paradigm is next, will be interesting to see whether UTA and ICM feel like continuing to hold the line for WME/CAA

Re: 1917
