Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

Figured that is who it was. Iíd personally avoid this situation unless they came to me with a high concept cheap/contained idea that I loved more than anything else I had an idea for.

Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

The possibilities of who this company is are limited. My advice is given with that in mind. So the town is littered with CEs with no pull trying to push sh1t forward. If I were in your shoes Iíd see...

Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

So youíre in the guild and they are using the guild site to source free writing? That would seemingly be a sh1t move. Are they a signatory?

The Affair

I don't know how I stuck with this show for the entire run - I've bailed on much better shows for far less. Rightfully I'd like to have been done after S2. I'd have never recommended it as a...

Start an LLC?

Yeah yeah talk to my lawyer, I know. Just curious though - Iím about to get paid for the first time - do I set up an LLC? Is that what folks here have done?

Thanks!

Re: How to build some heat?

The pace of reads from prodcos and agencies has slowed significantly on the feature side in my experience over the last six months. Itís getting kinda ridiculous. Frustrating as hell, I feel ya.

Re: Looking for an agent

All due respect, the concept/hook/logline is not getting you read, certainly not by an agent.

Look, maybe you are uniquely qualified to tell this story - maybe you lived it - so including that in a...

Re: Looking for an agent

Strong disagree on the three good scripts thing. Maybe have three good ideas ready to go. And of course this will vary from manager to manager but I had no problems getting offers to rep based off of...

Re: Looking for an agent

IMO, this will not get an agent interested even with a more compelling logline.

Re: What do you make of this query response?

I don’t think you will get many reads off of this query. It’s vague and doesn’t create any sort of stakes or tell us what it is about.

Re: Book option

Worry about this later. Write it. BLOND AMBITION certainly didn't have the life rights of a very alive and very litigious Madonna. It's worked out well for Elyse Hollander.

Re: Book option

Write it using those multiple sources and then let producers/financiers deal with the rights. Iím guessing this isnít a NYT bestseller. Iíd worry about that later. Until

Fire away. If multiple actually respond then you can worry about telling them.
