Re: Quandary. Help!

Well, he didn't necessarily have zero experience in TV (common misconception). He worked on THE KILLING and MAGIC CITY, before selling TRUE DETECTIVE. That is still a lot less experience than most...

Re: Is the first person you show your script to your manager?

1. Brother - He's my harshest critic. We have the exact same tastes in stories. He's essentially me without the beer goggles of having written the work.

2. Writer friend - He's a great writer. Helps...

Re: Best Time Travel Movie Ever...

I liked it a lot. Interesting angle on time travel paradoxes.

Great performances. Sarah Snook is ridiculously good in this. And Ethan Hawke, not much else needs to be said about him (great as...

Andrew Stanton used that style for the WALL-E screenplay.

Re: First Draft

3 days.

(Although I had broken out the story in my head and outlined for weeks before I started writing the first draft).

It was literally non-stop writing. 20 hours/day. Only able to sustain that...

Re: Question about letting someone shop your script without a written agreement

I usually agree with you, Ed, but have to disagree here.

I know good managers that sign writers with just one script. Yes, they still need to see the potential for a long-term career in that writer,...

Re: The Moment with Brian Koppelman

This is awesome. Had no clue this existed until now (and I'm on the ESPN site all the time).

I've only listened to the first 5 minutes of the Mazin interview so far, but Koppleman is really good at...

Re: Marc Webb's career

Agree with the above.

It doesn't matter if a director just has shorts/music videos or only 1 indie feature on their resume, if they win the job they win the job. They were the person that had the...

Re: Completed script + Spec Trailer - What next?

You have to hustle. You have to put in the work.

Research the best next steps. Every possibility. Scour the internet for stories/interviews on how others have done it in the past. Make sure you're...

Re: Can you make it as a screenwriter if you live 'near' Los Angeles?

Is it easier if you're living in LA? Absolutely (but mainly easier to take meetings and network). But could you still get repped and sell a spec from NorCal or Oklahoma or anywhere else in the world?...

Re: Picking the Right Concept

I wouldn't write #1.

Writing a good script--even from an idea you're incredibly excited about--is difficult. You're making it that much harder on yourself if you aren't "terribly enthusiastic" about...

Re: Transformers 4

I agree with cap7.

It's the same reason why everyone who hated the Star Wars prequels will go watch Episode 7, 8, 9, and so on.

Intrigue. Hype. And hope.

Hope that this next film might be as...

Re: Blood boiling after meeting, advice please!

Not necessarily. Depends on the language in the contract. For some options, all the changes and new drafts written during the option period would stay with the writer (in the event the option...

Re: Black List Score Patterns

Don't want to derail the thread, but I just wanted to clarify a few things.

I didn't get any "industry pals" to "give me" a score. I actually don't have any "industry pals" or "cronies." Far from it...
