Re: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

I've not seen 'TBOBS', or all of the other movies by the Coen brothers, but I didn't think they were capable of making an objectively bad movie - until yesterday, when I watched 'Hail,...

Re: Very unique situation - how to query manager/agent?

Regardless of who totes the horn, at somepoint someone really needs to toot it. :)

It's a shame that when the managing gets tough, Cokeyskunk's manager quits managing.

Re: DDP Hits 30,000

Many thanks, Will. By making and keeping the DDP forums freely available, you've helped at least one person to hold onto some sanity during difficult times.

Re: Results - Halloween 2018 contest

Jai - Many thanks for posting all that contest info. I'll check them out.

Regarding Coverfly - I'd not even heard of it. I've never entered a screenwriting contest, but considering that three out of...

Re: Results - Halloween 2018 contest

Please can you tell us those short screenplay contests that you entered? I'm interested in having a go at such contests. (Or PM me, if you'd rather. It would be much appreciated.)

Re: Covering many beats

I can imagine it's tough when there's a surfeit of source material, but remember that you're not writing a history essay or documentary. The only elements that you HAVE TO include are those that tell...

Re: Pleasing the Lead

Perhaps the imprisoned protagonist could suffer with syphilis, and so any one of his extremities may drop off at any moment. Syphilis used to be all the rage among the fashionable castle-owning...

Pitching Game Developers?

Re: WGA "No Writing Left Behind" campaign

All this raises the question: Why join a union and then work for free and betray your comrades like a worthless scab?

Re: Pleasing the Lead

I guess that actors want the chance to act both the subtle and the extreme.

Here's a super-exteme idea: the star protagonist breaks one of his ribs, and cuts himself open just enough to remove that...

Re: Pleasing the Lead

Does the star protagonist orchestrate their own escape from prison?

How about giving the star protagonist some prison-set extreme suffering, self-sacrifice, ingenuity, determination, or patience -...

Re: Halloween contest - GHOST TOWN

Re: Halloween contest - GHOST TOWN

I don't quite hate The Shining, but it doesn't stand up to scrutiny, and it may be just an elaborate triumph of style over substance.

Re: Halloween contest - GHOST TOWN

Last week I saw The Shining (1980) again, and I still have a problem with who or what opened the storeroom door to let Jack out. For me, that crosses a line in the supernatural sand, and seems a bit...

Re: Advice on character reaction description

But is that not both show AND tell? (I'm joking.)

There seems to be some confusion about the advice "show, don't tell". That advice applies to the characters 'showing' the audience in the movie, but...

Re: The Opening - Problem vs. Opportunity

It's a movie, so we'll all know that the 'opportunity' is really problems pending.

Don't a lot of horrors begin with 'opportunities'?
