Re: Pitch structure

Yep. Choose your lane and stay in it. I do the same when I have an acting audition. Make a creative choice and stay true to it. If I'm wrong, I prove to them I know how to make a creative choice and...

Re: Pitch structure

Yep. The more you pitch, the more they have to pass on. 10 minutes max. Then you LET THEM TALK. You get questions to answer which allows you to interact with them as you give them more information...

Re: Residuals???

The writers you heard from were getting residuals. No writer ever got paid from net backend ever. That's a way producers use to pay you less up front. I've learned my lesson on that. Pay me now,...

Re: Residuals???

The last two checks I got were from Warners & Fox. I have no idea how they calculate them. Total of both together was about $25.

Re: Residuals???

Unless your contract specifically specified residuals and how they would be calculated, you aren't getting any. There are no automatic residuals for non union projects.

Re: Residuals???

Re: Extracurricular Activities

Thanks!

It opened in New York and LA for a week, then went to VOD. I did get to see it in theaters and I would have loved to see it stay for a while, but that wasn't the plan. 1091 (The Orchard) is...

Re: Cause for concern or just lawyer mumbo jumbo?

They are protecting themselves. They also don't want ANYONE sending them unsolicited scripts. It's their business model. Without a manager (agents are out right now) or a trusted industry...

Re: Project requested, no agent/manager to send it

It is a very kind pass, as indicated above. If they loved it, they'd send an NDA without an agent. No one reads a query they love then puts roadblocks up. Just keep sending them out.

Re: Anyone outside America been read by CAA?

It was a polite pass form letter. Nothing more. A pass.

Re: Extracurricular Activities

I wrote it originally as a writing sample, pretty sure because of the subject matter and my treatment of it there wasn't much of a chance it would get made. But I wanted to write something so out of...

Re: Extracurricular Activities

You assume correctly. It was a solo spec... I have solo credit. Only writer on the film. It was a dream come true. Thanks... It's a pretty dark funny thriller.

Re: Time it takes your agent to read material?

Ever since I fired my manager, my agent has become more attentive and reads my stuff faster. Maybe it's because he now knows HE'S my go to guy. And I no longer have someone more interested in...

Re: Do Managers/Agents USUALLY respond after a full read request?

First of all, you need to get to the mental state of, "Send and forget." Let go. 99% of submission is rejection. None of it personal. They don't care enough about you for it to get personal....

Re: Do Managers/Agents USUALLY respond after a full read request?

The above is correct. But you need to know, more and more managers, agents, and producers are resorting to what I call The Silent Pass. If you don't hear from them, it's a no. Why? Because too many...
