Re: Black List Website Postmortem

I don't over or under value competitions. On the contrary, I look at them as neutral testing sites that will give me a fair evaluation for the quality of my script. Nicholl and Austin are the two top...

Re: Black List Website Postmortem

That's a fair question as to why I think the 8 is more valid than the 4. Since my own judgement is obviously going to be biased, I'll point out:
--The script was a QF in both the Nicholl and Austin...

Re: Q for those who have used The Blacklist...

I've posted this before, but:
My first script on the BL got a 9 and helped land me a manager for a while.
My latest, after some revisions, got an 8, giving me two free evals, which of course, I took...

Re: Black List Website Postmortem

Thanks for sharing your experience. I'll share my most recent one.

My script, a high-budget biopic, got a 7-6-5 when I first submitted a couple of years ago. After some rewrites, the script did very...

Re: Nicholls

Greg,
Will the QF list be posted anywhere? Have the loglines been sent out yet?
Thanks!

Re: Emailing after notify by deadline has already passed

If you're that unsure, might as well give them the weekend and contact them Monday.

Re: Emailing after notify by deadline has already passed

No, it's not that odd. Many contests like to give a later target date and post earlier, rather than the reverse, since it makes them look inefficient.

Re: Nicholls

After 15 years of trying, I finally advanced this year with a script that had been Top 10% the previous two years.

Congrats to all who advanced.

Re: WriteMovies Contest

I won their UK contest last year. They are always quick to respond, and I've gotten three rounds of development notes so far. They've also pitched my script to a couple of prodcos. While not having...

Re: New to VirtualPitchFest

I paid for 12 pitches, got four requests and one rejection from the people I sent it to. What I like is the query letter tool, which they help you fill out, and the fact that you can target companies...

Re: Simplified Blacklist Question

I'm not sure what you are asking on #1. As for the others:

2. I don't think you technically have to buy an evaluation, but if you want to get noticed, a high score on one helps. Otherwise, you...

Re: Austin FF worth it?

In addition to being a great time and meeting great people, the conference also contains a lot of useful panels, so you can learn a bunch. If you are a second-rounder or better, they have special...

Re: Nicholl 2016

I have to say I was a bit disappointed with my comments. Both picked out a key scene in the script -- the death of a key character -- and drew the exact opposite impressions. I suppose that's the...

Re: UK Notes/Coverage?

WriteMovies has a coverage service and a contest specifically aimed at UK writers. Their coverage is pretty good.

Re: See WHO evaluated you on Blacklist?

I'm not sure of too many instances where anyone lets you know who evaluated your script. Big contests like Nicholl or Austin certainly don't. ProdCos and agencies don't. Like anything else, it's a...

Re: A Little Contest Paranoia For Ya

Instead of the universal "don't enter contests," try doing some research. I've never heard complaints about how the majors -- Nicholl, Disney, Austin, Sundance, a few others -- are run. But you...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Define success, Purple. I got a rep after scoring a 9 on the BL, something I never was able to do before that despite advancing in contests like Disney and Austin. So, I'd consider that a success. I...

@TMCan, where are you located? I found my group here in Raleigh on a google search.
You can also check meetup to see if there are groups in your area. Also, the blacklist hosts mixers once a month in...

Re: Who has tips for attending Austin?

I've been four times, so:
--Plan out your panels ahead of time, and always have a backup panel to go to, in case your top choice is too overcrowded and you can't get in.
--If Vince Gilligan is on a...

@GregBrainos, of course you should; why wouldn't you?

Advancing in any major competition tells potential readers that your script has something to it that distinguishes from the 1,000s who entered....

Re: Execution Needs Work

I think you should name the contest and the prod co. If you can get a read from one of the other producers, then I think that's the way to go. If they don't give you the new (legit) read, then you...

Not sure, though I can say everywhere Vince went, he was swarmed. But it was tough moving through the Driskill during the conference even without his presence, and the line to get into various...
