Re: Spread Too Thin?

Yes, my experience has been close to Ducky's. Wrote a pilot as a staffing sample, and it did so well for me as such that my reps sent it out to studios and prodcos for possible packaging and...

Re: Final Draft 8 printing extra lines per page

Yeah, it occurred to me after the question that I could just save to pdf & print the pdf. But I still wanted to sort out the pagination issue.

Changed out the toner today and setting the office...

Re: Spread Too Thin?

Unless it's a genre show with a complex mythology, spending a lot of time trying to plot out the whole series probably isn't the best use of your energy. I think it's good to know where you plan for...

Re: Final Draft 8 printing extra lines per page

Well, I've successfully changed the default printer. Of course, my printer isn't functional right now anyway because the toner needs to be replaced, but tomorrow I'll be able to give it a shot and...

Re: Final Draft 8 printing extra lines per page

Win 8, which I'm just learning my way around.

Since I got this laptop (just a few days ago), the default printer seems to be the Final Draft pdf converter, even though I never use it. But that's...

Final Draft 8 printing extra lines per page

Hey, all. Long time, no type. The good news is that I'm now on the writing staff of CHICAGO FIRE. The bad news is that my scripts are printing funky.

Using Final Draft 8 on a PC (Toshiba Satellite...

Re: Fox Writer's Intensive/Residency Program

Alfred,

My experience is similar to onthecusp's. I emailed my reps asking about it, and shortly afterward I got an email with my login info. I actually wasn't sure I'd be able to get nominated via...

Re: Fox Writer's Intensive/Residency Program

None of the other network programs for TV promise a job, either, and the others don't commit to even one sale. But those other programs make an effort to get writers coming out of them staffed, and...

Posted about this in another thread, but the deadline for the Writers' Intensive is November 9th, and you need to be nominated and get your login info for the site before you can apply, so if...

Re: Fox In-House Writers

There's no pay. But it just meets one weekday evening and one weekend morning for a few months.

To apply, you need to be nominated, either by one of their approved organizations or by your...

Re: Austin Film Festival 2011

I was fine until I got home. I spent a couple of days wondering why my voice wasn't coming back after the festival. Then the plague came. Still not 100%.

I was the redhead in the array of graphic T...

Re: Writing for a now-on-air tv show

Showrunners & execs don't read specs for existing shows now as much as they used to. Most prefer pilots. But you need specs anyway, a) because you will sometimes get asked for one as a second sample...

Re: Austin Film Festival 2011

Congrats, UP! I managed to meet an astonishing number of people while at AFF and yet only see you from afar.

Re: Austin Film Festival 2011

Re: Austin Film Festival 2011

Considering that the discount for semifinalists knocks a few hundred off of the Producers' Badge, I definitely think it's worth it. I mean, $150 is still a chunk of change, but you get a few meals...

Hey, everybody! Long time no type here. I still see a lot of familiar names, though, so it's possible some of you may still remember me from a few years back.

Just checking in because I'm attending...

Re: NBC Writers on the Verge

Yeah. Didn't make it. Ah, well. Maybe WB would like to bring me in again, just for kicks.

Back to writing! And thanks for the good thoughts, everyone.

Re: NBC Writers on the Verge

Thanks again, everyone! Big shock -- my interview got moved to Friday. But I should have news pretty much right away after that, 'cause they're trying to start up the program ASAP.

Thanks yet...

Thanks for all the congrats and good luck wishes, everybody!

The interview went very well, I think -- just talking about my writing process, what I'm working on, what I watch, etc.

Re: NBC Writers on the Verge

Re: I/e

As far as I know, it's INT./EXT. and you use it for stuff like when a scene is taking place in a car and you want it shot both inside and from the outside of the vehicle.

I've never seen it...
