Re: Zoetrope?

It's still there, and I drop in very rarely. It's not very welcoming in my experience, and there are people who are very mis-informed. But there are also some nice people.

It's also a place to...

Re: Using a screenwriting career coach?

If I had a decent manager I wouldn't be asking the question. ;)

Not looking for a coach for affirmation. Considering whether one could do anything for me I can't do for myself.

Using a screenwriting career coach?

I'm curious about those who have worked with Lee Jessup and other screenwriting CAREER coaches (as distinct from writing coaches).

Who did you hire?

How much did it cost and for what...

Doing well in too many contests is a red flag for reps?

From a summary of an interview with Jake Wagner of Good Fear on reddit:

Lee Jessup and Screenwriting Career Coaches in General?

Has anyone worked with Lee Jessup or another screenwriting coach who deals with marketing/career issues (rather than script feedback)?

https://leejessup.com/career-coaching/

Any thoughts?

Re: Book coverage

I don't understand... Are you considering specing books that you don't have the rights to? If so, why?

Re: Franklin Leonard

Lots of scripts do well on the Black List without any tangible results for the writers.

A high rating or ranking isn't a guarantee of anything.

Structure 101: More than one way to build a screenplay (STPS #8)

My new blog is about screenplay structure.

What do we mean when we talk about the “structure” of a screenplay?

“Structure” isn’t the same as an outline or a beat sheet, though outlines and beat...

It's incredibly unlikely that you'd have anything stolen. It WAY cheaper to simply pay the writer (especially a newbie) rather than have to face a lawsuit -- and any experienced producer...

Re: "Sell your concept" scams

I think the issue isn't the treatment -- lots of people can do that.

Essentially, he's looking to hire a producer.

Re: "Sell your concept" scams

This isn't a person who has a script.

This is a person who has an "idea" for a reality show that he wants to host.

This type of "service" allegedly creates a treatment and then pitches it.

Presumably they do, or there wouldn't be multiple websites with this "business model."
