Re: Franklin Leonard

I don't think most screenwriters are attractive enough for this to be a viable alternative. That's for actors.



Because at the end of the day, it's a more fun career to wake up to than the vast...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Yeah. No way I'm paying $30 a month for so little return.

Re: Franklin Leonard

Bono, I don't host scripts on the site permanently. When I complete a script (and have had it evaluated by a few trusted people), I put it up on the site, buy two evaluations, and host it for a...

Re: Franklin Leonard

It's not that I think you can't offer your opinion. It's that I think that you are less likely to understand what BL customers perceive as its benefits unless you have.

I still think you don't...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I reread your statements, and now I see that I indeed mischaracterized your words. My mistake.

Re: Franklin Leonard

Haha, Bono, funny analogy. But I'm not sure it's the best one. When you have a girlfriend, she's the only one you're dating (well, unless you're the leader of a cult).

As I've said before, the...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Art is subjective, but there must be some kind of objective standard applied when you are charging people to evaluate it. Otherwise it's hard to take a service seriously.

All I'm asking is for a...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Sure, the realities of Hollywood don't make sense. But again, this is not trying to pitch your script to different companies, which is a free activity. This is a paid service, meaning it should be...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I think that Franklin genuinely cares about helping screenwriters. I think that he genuinely thinks that his service can be used to help screenwriters.

I think those things, but you know what I...

Re: Franklin Leonard

The problem is that's just an assumption you're making. We have no idea if this is how the BL approaches scoring because it has never provided an explanation other than "it's how the reader feels...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I remember that 4% figure, and I thought it sounded unrealistically low back then. Are we really supposed to believe that with thousands of submissions and with no specific criteria attached to the...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I'm not sure why you keep going back to the topic of success rate. I said that my main concern is not how many successes there are, but how fundamental aspects of the system are run.



It doesn't...

Is one of them Roy Lee? He read one of my scripts through a query, too.

Re: Franklin Leonard

Sure, and I'm happy for her. And I'm sure you could pull out several other examples. But as I said, identifying high-profile examples of success doesn't negate inherent flaws in the system and lack...

Re: Jojo Rabbit

Really looking forward to seeing this, too.

I'm just laughing thinking about how many modern-day Nazis and their fellow white supremacists gave the trailer downvotes. "How dare they show such...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I've been saying this for years on here. Any grading system worth its salt has some kind of tangible criteria attached -- whether it's a school paper, a screenwriting contest, or an online service...

Re: Screencraft Contest Deadlines

It's actually gotten a higher profile in the last few years -- not up there with Nicholl/PAGE/Austin of course, but probably safely in the middle tier of contests along with Final Draft and Script...

Screencraft Contest Deadlines

Hey everyone, hope you had a good week.

I'm thinking of entering the ScreenCraft Drama competition. Its website says that the final deadline is August 31st. That said, I know more than a few...

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad

There are lots of repped writers who enter contests -- mostly to draw additional career heat or attention to a screenplay. I understand if there are some contests that allow this, but I honestly...
