Re: IMDB vs. IMDBpro

IMDbPro for contact info has worked well for me. I haven't had bounces, and usually get a response. But I've probably only sent like 20 queries over the years.

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

I watched A Face in the Crowd like five years ago. It was really good. I watched it for a reason, but I can't remember it now.

Thumbs up Re: Amount of characters for Sitcom - Minimum / Maximum?

Re: Amount of characters for Sitcom - Minimum / Maximum?

Oksar, you make a point I was going to try to make but didn't think I could do it here without confusing everything more. I've analyzed Modern Family (in the past) and I think you don't get confused...

Re: Films that handle theme well and those that do it poorly

I just watched THE FIRM again the other night, and it's an example of a film that hits the theme a little too hard. It's not subtle. How a client cannot betray his client. I had not seen the movie...

Re: Amount of characters for Sitcom - Minimum / Maximum?

Good one. The Office is another.

In general, you won't find many over six.

Re: Amount of characters for Sitcom - Minimum / Maximum?

More important is the max number of characters. It's 7. That's the amount of information the human brain can hold in easy memory. It's why phone numbers were limited to that seven digits back when we...

Re: With reps home now isolating - is this a great time or bad time to query?

You're right. I read it in a Lockhart group. Thanks!

I'm putting that on my list to watch out for. That's one I would mix up, too.

Re: With reps home now isolating - is this a great time or bad time to query?

Agree. Goes back to the chestnut from Christopher Lockhart: "Calculate less."

EDIT: It's Brian Koppelman who said this. I was wrong. Correcting my post.

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Heh. I've seen it misspelled from others high up also. I once wrote a script about a wedding and spelled altar as 'alter' throughout... My reader was like, "You need to get the details right."

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

My friends in San Francisco think this will turn into martial law soon. What's funny on Twitter is how many people call it "marshall" law.

Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

Re: Atlas Literary (HertzbergMedia) - New Management Company

It doesn't seem like they've been folded in yet -- they don't appear on the staff lists for Atlas Entertainment. My experience has been when a company is acquired, the old email addresses still work...

I'm not a lawyer, and other people will probably give you more concrete advice. This sounds like a case of, "Inspired by..."
