You are not going to be able to find that information for free.

One place where you can find that information is Baseline Studio Systems. But it's a pay site and it's not cheap. They do offer a la...

Re: Writing for the Chinese/HK market?

Yes, you will need to have your project translated into Mandarin before submitting to SARFT. In my experience, you will have to get the translation done yourself. The script I co-wrote had Keanu...

Re: Fight scenes...how detailed?

This fight is a little generic but shootable. You give a clear idea to the coordinator of the story of the action. The amount of detail is fine.

This is a quick fight. You don't need to space it...

Re: Great moments of suspense

Anything Hitchcock. More recently, I love the scene in the middle of Infernal Affairs when the mole is tailing the other mole. Skip the hack version made by Scorcese and watch the original.
