Re: Abrams Artists Signs WGA CoC

Yeah, I don't know, right?

Packaging is lucrative, but the payout seemed it was a guaranteed payday. I honestly don't know.

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Today they were talking about 18 months with "waves" of infections. My sister is an RN, she's going to do her job regardless of whether she has a mask, that's who she is... she's healthy. I really...

Re: Choosing a Location Where the Writer has Never been

Consider various resources. Years ago I lived in DC and I later wrote a script based there. I had good knowledge but when I wrote a sequence that tracked with a runner, I looked at a map through the...

Re: Force de Majeure

As we advance deeper into this pandemic, it is likely to be considered a force de majeure. Projections estimate the industry expects to lose a minimum of $20 billion, seems more than just a bad...

Re: 2 characters, same location, parallel universe logline help please

You could do a few things to help keep it clear. One giving the room a "room number" would help to identify that it is the SAME room.

Then within the action line you can add clarity. That's what's...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Well, I think we all know not to listen to Trump.

I heard that there is a new study out from China that indicates people who get better from COVID-19 have a 20-30% decrease in lung capacity. It's a...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

There are so many shows that are taking a break. How are these people getting paid? Is it sick leave? Two weeks might be manageable, but longer delays could be pretty devastating, right?

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Here in Connecticut there are only 3 cases, but surely it's in several places. The masks help contain when someone is infected.

No one has really changed their habits here even though we're so...

Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

That's a good point about the crew, because they could have been infecting each other for weeks on end, which means it's possible that the cruises before that first cruise identified with the...

Re: Writing copyrighted material

I think when you're talking about a public or private figure it falls under Fair Use Doctrine. It's not really intellectual property or copyright law that applies.

Re: Formatting with regards to location changes

Yes, my mistake. ACROSS THE STREET is too vague and in this instance is a camera direction to indicate a TRACKING SHOT.

Using the subheader HARVEY'S BAR would be clearer, because that is where the...

Re: Formatting with regards to location changes

When you're in a single location like a house or, let's say a bar, you can use subheaders as long as it's clear you are in the same location.


You can still use full sluglines if you want. Once you...

Re: Writing copyrighted material

I have some strong opinions on this topic.

How does being a "good writer" in any way justify it, or make it easier to accept? If you want to use someone's IP to write a sample to advance yourself,...

Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

Re: Atlas Literary (HertzbergMedia) - New Management Company

I have the Hertzberg Media email addresses, but I guess I assumed when Atlas bought them, their email addys would change? Can anyone confirm that they remained the same as Hertzbergmedia?
