Default Re: Interesting tidbit about my Blacklist experience...

I've felt the whole time blacklist is just another contest (very expensive one it seems too) that has the same success rate as any other contest just with better prizes like actually representation. Nothing less, nothing more.

Does it matter if your script got all 10s or 1s... wouldn't you rather get all 5s and someone wants to sign you? Focus on results not ratings is my point.

I haven't used the service...

Lucky. I keep getting "High Budget" for my contained thriller in which 95% of the scenes could be shot in an old rusty mine or an old rusty Navy vessel.

I have one scene where NY is destroyed by a Hurricane, but even using History Channel CGI, wouldn't be very expensive.

I bet the same readers would list Avatar's budget as $900 million. At least they said my premise was fantastic and the script was one draft away from sellable.
