    Re: Few sales lately..

    Oh yeah, I haven't been obsessing. Certainly helps that I don't live in LA and am not in constant contact with my manager.

    Thanks for the advice. I am excited but definitely have tempered expectations. I'm honored just to be going out and to have my work read. Anything else is gravy. Hopefully very delicious gravy.

      I have no advice, because I have yet to be in your position. I do, however, share your excitment and wish you the best.

        Congrats and good luck, Starmand.

        .........unless your script has anything to do with fairytales and guns..... in which case I know where you live.

        I know what you mean about the not living in LA thing. It feels oddly unreal at this juncture. I've never even met my manager. Just spoke on phone and more emails than I can possibly remember.

        But I think it helps. I'm not obsessing because it feels like something that's happening without me. Like my manager is building the foundations and should anything kick-off then it all begins.

        ......hopefully

        PS. Terrance, not sure it's quite commercial or 4-quadrant enough for a high-six to mid-seven (keeps being described as edgy).......but we can but dream!

          Wishing you both well, if nothing else, it must be tremendously validating for you. And that in itself is important.

            @ Harbinger and Starmand, if you guys don't mind, I'd love to know which management company you guys are with?

            Regardless, adding to the good luck wishes!

              Didn't you know, these guys actually manage each other.

                I'm having the same experience. All feels very unreal and detached. Never met my manager either.

A few production companies liked it enough to take it in to several major studios and we're waiting to hear back. I'm excited and nervous and all that jazz. Any words of advice from you folks who've done this before?!
                  Although it's easier said than done, try and put it out of your mind and work hard on new concepts (if you haven't done this yet that is) and try and polish up your loglines so they work their best.

                  If anything, hopefully you'll line up some meetings with fans of your work and they'll ask about what you're working on next, so it's good to have those concepts lined up and polished.

                  What script was it that went wide? WHat was the title?

                      I don't have the 'B' let's get a copy and past so we can all congratulate him properly.

                      BTW Harbinger your pm is full. Not that I was going to pm you anything of any of any importance... so don't worry about that.

                          Does it not have his avatar next to it?

                          Just copy and paste the one that sounds like a fairy tale with guns.

                              SHOTGUN CINDERELLA. Remember the title from a contest last year. Thought the title/concept would make for great action. Good luck!

                                I don't need to hear the concept. I'm in from the title.
