Re: Preventing unwanted changes in rewrites

People like unique names. Most are not adverse to that. Hollywood doesn't set out to change names to be boring, plain or common. Not saying it hasn't happened but I can't think of situations when...

Re: Mini series packaging question

They do make some shorter/three-part series. Over the years, we've listed a little over 30 "three-part series" on the main site. Not that more haven't ever been done or set up, but they do exist,...

Re: Formatting and packaging

As for packaging a project, this is the...

Re: More of a filming question

I will throw this out there for now since no one else has noted anything yet. I'm not a DP nor do I play one on TV. But I have lit a short film and helped with lighting on a decent number of other...

Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

Since this thread, in particular, and Part 1 have seemed to run their courses, I'll just close it up for now. The topic seems pretty well discussed.

Re: First 10 (or 1) page

No. That's a scene from a comedy. I've never heard anyone ever say that or do that.

I don't want to put words in Jeff's mouth by any means, but entirely possible, doesn't mean they will or more...

Re: Current cost to copyright a screenplay?

Surely, there are a few cases we've never heard about which were probably settled quietly, thus tough to say, of course. But you're right. It could happen regardless, and who knows how the lawsuit...

Re: Current cost to copyright a screenplay?

It used to be $35, but now it looks like it went up to $45. You shouldn't be paying more than that, I'm next to positive.

Just double check what you are clicking on or selecting.
