Re: Advice needed from repped writers (spec related situation)

Hard to know for sure what 42’s actual remit is. If they’re saying they’re a management firm then so be it. All I know is that my then agent of a few years had been wanting to...

Re: Advice needed from repped writers (spec related situation)

Nope same one. They’re my old agents. I moved with them from ITG when they formed 42. And yep, they say they’re a management company (for producing purposes no doubt) but put it this way,...

Re: Advice needed from repped writers (spec related situation)

Look into getting a UK agent. If you’re based in the UK and have a script you believe in, that’s a better starting point. Even if it’s not right for the UK market they’ll be...

Re: Exits and Promotions @ ICM

Looks to be lots of movement going on. I had 4 agents at the start of the stand-off. One has since joined another of the big 4 and one has become a manager. Hard to know if it’s all related. My...

Re: New Philosophy

I say go for it Bono on the co-writing front if it’s a project and/or partnership you’re excited by and see where it takes you both. No reason why you can’t keep doing your own...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

Fair enough. For what it's worth, I didn't ask whether selling a pilot script was hard or not. Any sale in tv or film is hard. I think everyone will agree on that front. What I asked was if any dd'er...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

Sorry to hear that, that’s tough. It does feel like the hurdles are increasing. I had an original pilot that Amazon and Netflix both responded too. They called my agents and set up meetings....

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

Looks like this thread has gone way off topic. Only one dder with experience of a pilot sale shows just how few and far between they really are.

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

Was this an option deal with your if/come terms should it progress with the studio & Network? Or did you have a pilot script sale? I’ve had a fair few of the former with the initial outlay...

Re: Need Some Advice...

Lots of great advice on here. To echo others, don't over think the rep thing. Reach out to as many as possible. Should that lead to a conversation with a potential rep further down the line, then you...

Re: Going Wide in 2019

My manager has always been pretty good in terms of keeping me updated on who were in with and who has passed, whether or not folks dug the script/writing or didnt vibe with it. My agents on the...

Going Wide in 2019

Thought Id start a new thread on this as most of them about the topic of going wide are from a few years ago now. I may be wrong here but the approach seems to have shifted from the days of blasting...

Re: Time it takes your agent to read material?

All valid points and maybe they can/have. It's not something they've relayed back to me though. The director has just come off the back of a number of hit movies at the BO (grossing over a billion...

Re: Time it takes your agent to read material?

Man alive, I'm starting to fully understand that old phrase "hurry up and wait!" So my agents finally read the spec after a month. They loved it. Great news. They think it's perfect for the market....

Re: Cut To:

If it needs it, add it. Simple as that. No hard and fast rules. There's so much BS around about what you can and can't put in a script. As long as it flows and doesn't bump the reader out of your...

Re: Can WGA Writers Work for Non-Signatories Outside US?

Yeah that was my initial thought. My agents said the agency held a meeting about it and werent going to sign which suggests theyve been asked to.

British agencies will no doubt be less keen to...

Re: Can WGA Writers Work for Non-Signatories Outside US?

Re: BBC owns all British history or royal rights?

Your best bet in terms of getting any kind of development or production support for your project would be to align yourself with a British producer. And one that has links to the BFI. Look at films...
