Re: Streaming Services - New Ops for MOW Projects

I've had several scripts go into Netflix, and regardless of whether or not they loved it, it was always the same response: they need a package to move the needle.

Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

I missed the part about the creative execs. So yeah, like Satriales said. They're throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping something sticks.

Re: Manager/Producers want to write with you

It could mean they're looking for some IP for you to adapt for free, or maybe they're looking for ideas from you. Or both.

Doesn't seem they want to take you on as a client. They want you to write...

Re: Watchmen

I know nothing about the comics or the movie, so taking this on its own merits, I thought it was f*cking great.

Re: Advice needed from repped writers (spec related situation)

Curious to know what the resolution was and if you've decided to stick with this guy despite good advice from everyone here.

Re: The next TERMINATOR flick

Schwarzenegger is supposed to play an aging version of the old T-800 that is now living amongst humans. Which defies logic, because exactly how does a Terminator age? Why wouldn't it just look the...

Re: When you query ...

This.

One of the first things a reader will do is see how many pages are in the PDF. If they see 139, chances are they're not reading. Especially if they check the next one and see that it's 103....

Re: Exits and Promotions @ ICM

I worked with someone who took a crap on the bathroom floor. Guess it's more common than I thought.

Re: James Franco sued

Everyone needs to take a break from this thread. It is seriously out of hand. I'm appealing directly to FA4. Responding to Mega, right as you are in your outrage, is only going to escalate this...

Re: Nicholl 2019

To be fair, Hitchcock did lose to John Ford, Billy Wilder (twice), and Elia Kazan.

Re: A Note about Notes

I agree with Bunker, and would take it a step further. The best time, imo, is at the concept phase. You have to know up front whether or not the idea you're going to spend 6-9 months writing is any...

Re: Do I need an agent?

Following Bono's lead, I did a bit of Googling and have come away with the impression that this is not possible.

Re: Do I need an agent?

All you can say to this is, Yup!

And before anyone jumps down his throat for being harsh, it's definitely not. This is the kind of tough love people need to hear to shock them out of their stupors....

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad

The $129 is the last minute fee. I think the early deadline is a bit cheaper. That said, this is not a contest for getting feedback or putting a feather in your cap. It's for people who know they're...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Gucci pretty much nailed it. And Bono brought up a great point about what movies/shows you're watching. Def prepare a list of both (don't go crazy; 3-4 is fine). And they don't have to be narrative....

Re: When you query ...

As a former employee, I can assure you it was never really that great.

That said, it was always better than IMDB Pro.

Re: Contact information on screenplays

No need to have your address on there, so yes leave that off. If you're reaching out to a manager who does not want clients out of state (and some don't), you're only hurting yourself.
