Re: What do you make of this query response?

Scott Carr read several scripts of mine and never asked for a reading fee even after he started that practice, a practice which is hard to defend. But clearly contraction of the feature business has...

Re: Advice needed from repped writers (spec related situation)

Sounds like you need to have an honest discussion with your manager. Let him know you appreciate all the time he's put into this project, but if he can't give you a firm timeline for when it will be...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

The Created By credit can be misleading IMO since there are tv writers adapting novels into series, but that credit would seem to suggest they created the entire story, but they didn't. They only...

Re: Austin 2019 - Help Please

Chris Lockhart (an exec at WME who used to post here) posted this recently on FB:

"While a lot of people are fans of Austin, I think it's mostly a cash grab. The fest has a large number of...

Re: New Philosophy

Script is on the shelf for the time being, as I landed new representation this summer for my solo work. But if things fall into place with any of my stuff, I will definitely try to capitalize on that...

Re: New Philosophy

Actually the worst case scenario is this (if you are both unrepped):

Reps pass right out of the gate because you and your partner aren't definitively a team going forward.

I wrote a script with a...

Re: What are you looking for?

Personally I think the feature side of the business has contracted to the point that very few reps would make the effort to sell a writer based on a great but unsellable spec.

Pretty sure that...

Re: Jeff Belkin/Zero Gravity info?

I had the same experience as others. Jeff was always polite, professional, and prompt, but passed on everything I sent him, while leaving an open door. One of my specs he passed on is currently under...

Re: Formerly Repped

Not only would I politely mention that they (claimed to have) liked a past script, I wouldn't be shy about mentioning past reps at all. I have landed multiple reps over the years via cold query and I...

Re: Imagine Impact 3

Thanks. While I submitted on time and have a screenshot of my app proving that, I don't think my app was ever received. I tried contacting them via email, FB and Twitter, and received no...

Outside of LA and NYC, there are literally zero agents and managers worth signing with.

Re: Why are producers interested in paying me?

Could you clarify your question? If you reread your post, maybe you see why I ask.


Regardless, good luck with the project.

Re: Franklin Leonard

No. It exists primarily to make Franklin Leonard money, by underpaying readers to read the work of neophytes who are so inexperienced as to be unable to recognize his predatory business model.

Re: What would you do here?

Copyrighting your work is sufficient. I have never nor would I ever ask for anyone to sign a NDA. No offense to the poster or those who disagree, but it's a rookie move. The threat of having work...

Re: Writer's Market

While there are always exceptions, the conventional path to selling a pilot is landing reps (starting with a manager, then agent) who then package your show with a showrunner and/or director before...

Re: After read request, how long does it take?

I have had calls anywhere from 1-6 weeks after submitting a requested script. One of my former managers called me 6 weeks after I submitted expressing interest, but then needed to pass the script to...

Re: Black List/Nicholl List for QFs, SFs and Finalists

TrackingB.com only offers contests as far as I know, no subscription service.

Re: TV Pilot - on-spec arrangement w/producer -- question

All I can tell you is that tv deals are far more complex than feature deals and it's imperative that you get some help with this from a lawyer or at least a rep who is familiar with these contracts....

Congrats on getting produced! No small feat.

Re: TrackingB vs Tracking Board Launch Pad

Not only is Adam the Insider at TrackingB charging far more than any other contest, he operates with zero transparency whatsoever. There is no evidence that he reads more than a handful of scripts,...
