Re: Recourse for non-WGA writer to enforce credit

Re: Recourse for non-WGA writer to enforce credit

As you note, and I will note this for others who might read this post, this was not the way to go, ever. Get it all in writing even with your own mom.

In the indie world, you surely don't have...

Re: Script gained heat w/ agents then Covid hit

You bet. I hope it can help.

And in all fairness to the discussion and to try to help, what we see some folks do is run various reports/searches via our site to narrow down who they will like to...

Re: EP credit

I got an AP credit for editing the last third of an indie feature and doing some development/script polishing before the shoot & AD'ing on set for half the shoot (for free). Co-Producer gets thrown...

Re: EP credit

Healthy paranoia & cynicism are good things in this business.

In terms of producing credits, I've had similar things happen for me in terms of helping out on some small indie projects in different...

Re: EP credit

Ah. That is a fair enough view/comment. Maybe so. Lots of times our instincts are correct, of course.

I'd possibly suggest, if they hand you an agreement/contract and all the key deal points are...

Re: EP credit

EP credits are handed out like candy at Halloween on many a film. They mean "nothing" in most cases. It's just a little "bonus" credit for some extra work and is not something worthy of taking any...

Re: And we are back again....

E-mail for this kind of stuff is the best and quickest. Also, no idea really what to tell you at this point. Have you checked your SENT box? Looked to see if there are a bunch of "sent" messages in...

Re: And we are back again....

That is strange. Have changed any settings related to that at all. But that said, I bumped up the number of PMs for users by quadruple. Not sure what that will do, but nothing should have just...

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

Yes. Please give it a nice long rest, any and all doing this. It's not needed nor is it helping the situation. Focus on topics not users.
