Default The New Black List

Just spotted this on Twitter. Apparently, The Black List just got awesome-er.

http://waitlist.blcklst.com/

Seems like Netflix for screenplays. Great idea.

Interesting, but how do you get your scripts there? Isn't the Black List basically the best 'rejected' scripts? So do you need to send it out to prod co's then get rejected and then get on the site if they liked it or can you just send it to them/upload it if you're, let's say, a Finalist for PAGE.

It's the best unproduced scripts. Meaning not yet movies. So your script could be in-development somewhere and still be on the list.

Don't think writers have any control over how to get on it. It's just industry votes.

From an email that went out announcing the new service:

"If you're a writer, you'll be able to pay a small monthly fee (probably $30/month) to make your script available to our industry membership. You'll also be able to pay (probably $30 each) for brief evaluations from our team of professional (though anonymous) script readers, so that we can direct your script into the right hands."

So, as I understand it, the InkTip model, which doesn't really (to my mind) do anything for the industry members who sign up for the service other than make it easier for them to be inundated with thousands of amateur scripts by writers who ponied up their $30 to be added to the database.

If there are truly worthy scripts, my impression is that they don't stay undiscovered within the industry for long, and I don't know that you would need this service to bring them to your attention.

This isn't the same Black List, dood. This is a new service just like Inktip except it's using the Black list name...the guy who created the Black List never made a dime from it...this is his way to cash in.

Hmmm, not sure how I feel about writers paying to be on this. Should just be like The Black List but electronic. You want comedies? Here's a Black List for comedy. And for thriller. For action. For drama, what have you.

Paying for it just makes it a shinier Inktip.

I thought it was going to be like a IMDB for scripts.

the tracking boards largely serve that function, i would think. i don't know if all scripts that go out make it onto the boards, but the ones that most execs need to know about seem to.
