Re: Spec Scout

Scoggins, I'll wait until you implement the opt-out policy on your website. I'd like to see you follow through with that rather pick out the specific writers who don't want to be included in Spec...

Re: The Ethics of Reading

This debate will never come to an end.

I've noticed it's mainly amateur / unknown screenwriters grabbing every spec, in development draft, or produced screenplay floating around the internet....

Re: Process

Think of an idea.

Expand into a concept.

Expand that into a story.

Jot down some basic info on the main characters.

Write the script.

Re: What's the most you have written in one go?

Re: Spec Scout

Hey Tom,

I'll have my reps sort it out after the Holidays. I really don't want that spec being covered or ranked on your website. It wasn't even something to go out into the market, but a writer's...

Re: Spec Scout

My spec is so poorly scouted on that website.

On one 2012 list it made, not the other.
Listed as setup/sold yet also available at the same time.
The wrong production company and producer is...

Re: Hit List?

It was posted in with the blood list / hit list topic about hired readers. I think it deserves it's own topic though.

I'm on this list, as well as a few other done dealers. It's cool to see fellow...

Re: Black List founder Franklin Leonard answers your questions about the Black List

Since it's being released via Twitter and >50% of the writers are probably on Twitter, do you plan on mentioning their handles as well in the tweets?

That could really give the writer a *Gasp*...

Re: Spec Scout

This is something that I don't like, especially specs that are still on the market but ranked low by this top secret "formulaic system". Unsure how many others feel the same way, or if professional...

Re: The Hit List and the Blood List??

So I guess ScriptShadow is going to send out all of the Hit List specs in his newsletter tonight... same way he did the Blood List.

Re: Black List - Any Success Stories Yet?

This is a legitimate service. I think the only people being fooled are the ones who believe their script is a definite 10 and think this is their easy ticket to Hollywood. His script also had 20...

Re: The Hit List and the Blood List??

Congrats to those who made the hit list. I'm on it as well, but isolated and partying alone. :(

I hope to see your names pop up on Monday's Black List tweet fest. If I do spot it, expect a...

Re: Upcoming Scriptshadow book

This whole ScriptShadow bullshit reminds me of the No Church In the Wild video for some reason.

Re: Spec Scout

It makes no sense that Duffield's MONSTER PROBLEMS is a 83.3, and his JANE GOT A GUN is a 40.

Why not post WHO the readers are and THEIR credentials. Everyone gets away with "Industry readers" as...

Re: Manager notes vs. Agent notes

Expect notes from anyone in your team. Manager, Agent, Assistant, even a Junior Agent.

If you involve the agent earlier, you risk not having "fresh eyes" later on. :)

Re: Are there Managers who specialize in TV SITCOM pilots?

Research. Research. Research.

Find out who repped some of your favorite TV projects. You'll benefit tremendously if you do all of your own footwork than ask for lists, or easy routes to access.

Re: Script Shadow in the NY Times!

1. Become a professional screenwriter.

2. Ask your reps, "I'd like to read _____. Can you send it?".


Outside of that circle, read the **** that's already online. IMSDB or whatever.

Re: Mass Mailing Specs via Newsletter

No hostility and I appreciate your interaction.

I just don't think you're in a position to provide a decent answer, or advice, to the question. No offence.
