Re: Spec Scout

I sold a spec this year that also made it on the hit list, but I noticed that it hasn't received coverage on any either of your sites...

Re: The Hit List and the Blood List??

I too made it - barely. Still on cloud nine though. Any recognition at all means the world to me.

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

When does the good old fashioned Black List -- the year's most liked un-produced screenplays -- come out?

Re: Alright, I'm not afraid to post it..LOOKING FOR MANAGER..

There are a lot of preposterous connections being drawn in this thread between the music industry and the film industry, between the news industry and the film industry. My analogy was a comment on...

Re: Alright, I'm not afraid to post it..LOOKING FOR MANAGER..

I don't think working at the news arm of ABC in NYC is much of a leg-up in this particular scenario. A New York news producer (or camera man or P.A. or editor) is unlikely to be connected with the...

Re: How often do you contact your manager?

Several time a week if we are pushing a new script, getting reads, and taking meetings.

When I'm locked away writing and there isn't a lot of business to be discussed: once or twice a month.

Re: Questions for lawyers

Thanks guys.

Should I expect there to be charges beyond the normal 5% fee? I wasn't aware that entertainment attorneys billed like regular lawyers.

This is my first real dealings with a lawyer of...

Questions for lawyers

For those of you with lawyers:

What are the most important questions to ask during your initial meeting? What do you wish you would have asked your lawyer before you started working with...

Re: My own manager

Before you show your script to anybody, you should try to figure out what's wrong with your space-bar.

Re: Need some advice

I'll add and reiterate:

Go with your gut, but remember you're not picking a new best friend. You're picking someone to enter into a business relationship with. It's important that you like them and...

Re: Agents at smaller Agencies

Generally speaking, I think unrepped writers are sometimes confused about how big and professional places like APA and Gersh are. To me, it's like saying, "Hey guys, I know I'm not ready for the...

Re: How on earth do I get CAA to read my work?

Do you have a manager?

If you're not having luck with agencies, why not focus on getting a manager? Often times managers are much more eager to read new writers because they love to help develop and...

Uh, what's your point? It was a nicholl winner and on the black list, doesn't change the fact that an esoteric/specific script about butter carving became an extremely popular spec.

I'm also not...

I don't know, man. Director's production companies are always looking for projects that are in their director's wheelhouse. Chances are if their production company's readers don't like it for their...

Re: Agent no longer at Agency

ICM, huh?

My guess is he will probably take you with him where ever he ends up. Especially if he told you he'd keep you updated...

I recently had a rep leave one company for another and he was very...

Re: Reps without Queries

I see what you're saying. But I actually don't think living outside of L.A. excludes you from networking. A lot of reps prefer email and phone. Most of my story was accomplished outside of L.A. so I...

Re: Reps without Queries

There's at least ten or eleven (not including this one) about querying on the front page alone.

You must not be counting very hard.

I noticed there seems to be a disproportionate number of posts (half, maybe) about querying on this sub-forum. And, as I said in a previous post, I don't really know any writers who found reps...

Re: Reps without Queries

"Industry Referrals/Open door relationships" is how I did it and the five friends I'm thinking of (3 individual writers and 1 team/duo) did it the same. None of them have expressed to me that query...

However, one thing I've noticed: there is an overemphasis put on query letters in this forum, in my...

I didn't read the entire thread, but I think it's safe to say: if you have to ask, then you already have the answer.
