Re: Unprofessionalism the norm?

Btw -- that whole thing is odd to me seeing as how so many suit types love to abuse fancy language [they're intimidated by our verbiage on the page] in everyday speak. So… what's with the...

Re: Max Landis article on Deadline

Realistically, you probably need around 3-5 solid kickass scripts to know if you're failing. If you have 3-5 scripts you feel are kickass and none of them got you traction, something isn't working in...

Re: What is voice?

Agreed. I'd nutshell that by calling it "presence."

Pres·ence

The state or fact of existing, occurring, or being present in a place or thing.
"her presence still comforts me"
synonyms: existence,...

Re: Max Landis article on Deadline

^TRUE^

It's never nepotism past the "whatcha got for me kid…"

It's never a blank check. Far from.

Re: RIP BenderSpink

No lie, the spouse emailed "verbatim" [in quotes], what they wanted the manager to say during the deal making process [WHAT.THE.FUZZ!?!?!?!?]. That spouse killed their spouse's deal because of it....

Re: Overexposed on Blacklist?

Jeff, (I find BL confusing) how'd you fake your pilot on there? I want to see if I can beat your score [i.e. score of 10 and 1. ;)] using the same undercover methods [I'll post my score here]. You...

I'm not sure I buy his output.

Also, depends on the story. I've written a feature in two weeks. And 4 weeks. This last pilot I was lucky to get a page a day, much harder...

Re: Is this too desperate or stalker-ish?

I'm torn. I'd need to know who it is. If it's Bill Cosby, then yes, definitely accost him. If it's Jim Gaffigan… ummm… NO!

Re: Newbie Seeking Sage Advice

'Ghost rep.' Best term I can think of for a role that is technically non-existent. Although, I'm fine with whatever term we'd like to use for someone who made several hundred thousand a year for a 2...

Ps... Never once saw anyone say, in this thread, agent good manager bad.

But it's true that the money is often way better on the flip side. For not a whole lot of work. Fact.
