Re: Are there any other British screenwriters with an LA manager here?

Ironically, I'm an American looking for a producer in England to produce my script. :o It's a Christmas film set in London, 1850. I've had talk of producing it here, but I'm pretty adamant it needs...

Re: Yes... It is possible to Start a Career Ouside of Los Angeles

I love this. I am one of those who lives in a lower-cost state and am out to prove that LIVING in/near LA is *not* a requirement for success.

NOW all I have to do is find someone to have a meeting...

E-mail address for Osgood Perkins?

Hi all,

Does anyone know an email address for Osgood Perkins? He recently publicly stated he would love to direct a script that describes exactly what I've written. I even have several links to...

Re: A Christmas contest, perhaps.

I'm interested. I just finished a follow-up script to A Christmas Carol that I'm rather excited about. Would be good to get some more feedback.

EDIT: Well, farts. Nevermind. Didn't realize it was...

Re: Dupree Miller

Yeah, currently he appears to be repping ONE writer, and that's the dude who penned Bone Tomahawk.

Re: Dupree Miller

Oops. I guess I didn't catch that part. I have been told there are some screenplay literary agents/managers in the Dallas area, and that I just have to find them. Thought this might be one of them.

Re: How do you know itís time to fire your manager? (first manager)

If t'were me (which t'isnt), I would begin looking for a new manager while continuing to work with this one. Then, when you find a manager that you feel will work not just FOR you but WITH you, THEN...

Re: Me or the WGA?

That's a good idea. I do pay for an IMDbPro account, but that was originally to keep my headshot up.

If it doesn't exist already, someone should make a list of all the companies who are accepting...

Re: Me or the WGA?

Hmm. That's really encouraging. I've always taken the manager-scouting route. Going directly to the source is interesting. I know that Brian Koppelman - at the time, a complete unknown - famously...

Re: Me or the WGA?

While I can't judge the quality of your work not having reviewed it - your observed drop-off is almost assuredly due to the WGA fiasco.

That's AWESOME. Now we can have SOME agents back to work. Let's hope they're the first domino.

Actually (and ironically), he responded today and told me to check in with him again when the agents are back to work. He was responding to my "thank you anyway" email response. I was as gracious and...

Re: i hate this thread title

Definitely have moved on. In talks with another manager now.

So -- your OWN agent was an ass to you whenever you asked him anything? I don't see how that helps the "client-rep" relationship in the...

I have a script that has two different particular songs listed as playing in the scenes. One of which plays twice and the title is actually the title of my screenplay.

Will a contest disqualify me...

Re: Is not living in LA or NY a dealbreaker for managers & agents?

I apologize if this came out sounding snotty. It was not in the least intended to be so.

To be honest, the Los Angeles-area is where I've always wanted to be. But sadly, my circumstances have always...

I'm just wondering about whether or not this is the best timing, or should I simply wait until a resolution occurs? I worry that all "new business" may be...
