Default Re: Seeking Your Opinions!

Yeah be very careful with this. I once had a situation like this with a producer -- a reputable one with some big credits. He said he liked my script but would like to see some notes/changes applied to it before they option it. He gave me a ton of notes on it, and since the notes made sense, I made the changes according to his notes in what amounted to a very big rewrite. And then, of course, in the end, they didn't end up optioning it because of financial commitments to another project, or his partner, or something -- can't remember the reason. Moral of the story, don't ever do it expecting it to result in an option and only do it if the notes make sense to you. The good news was my script became way stronger because of the rewrite and I was able to go on to get a major director attached to it.
