Re: What is the difference?

By the way, if you Google 'Antagonist in Jaws' this comes up as the first result:

Re: What is the difference?

I believe all this boils down to opinion. Writers are free to present their material however they wish. If you want to use that logline, then fine. But man, that is one awkward triple-coma sentence....

Re: What is the difference?

This is a pretty cool definition. The only one minor squabble I have is with the notion that the logline should touch on the conflict in the story. While this is certainly a good strategy, it does...

Re: What do you like to do when you finish a script?

My ritual de lo habitual has changed over the years. First it started off as a bonfire burning the first script I ever wrote. I remember it involving tears and much yelling at the heavenly skies....

Re: The "Friday the 13th" legal battle

Thanks for sharing this. I had no idea of this legal battle. I wonder if the creation of Jason as the iconic hockey mask killer is at the center of the dispute. I did a quick search of the original...

I didn't know they had style sheets for assignment writing. This is fascinating. Do you know how I could get a copy of one or find it online?

Re: One take scenes

If it's integral to the story I would say go for it. In the script for Birdman they handled it with the 3 dots at the end of each scene.

Re: Looking for a mature business relationship

I second this! Drew is the best. He has done coverage for over 8,000 screenplays (including for most studios). Knowing how your script compares to 8,000 other screenplays is priceless in my opinion.

Re: Deadline Approaching for Edinburgh Short Film Festival 2017

Thank you for letting us know. Too bad it is already the late deadline. I have always been told to never submit during that period. It's better to wait for next year.

A Good Source For Short Screenplays?

Can anyone recommend a good source for pre-screened short screenplays? I am a director and am looking for a couple 10-page max scripts with strong female leads. The only site I know about is Inktip.
