    Re: The New Black List

    $25 a month PLUS $50 for a read?

    Why not just query the people on the producers' list for free?

    Well, one good thing that comes out of this is at least I won't have to be annoyed about not making the black list any more!

    Franklin, certainly there is a big rush today, but about timing - How long do you expect it to take to get the $50 notes/review/rec?

    Here's why I ask. It seems that one has to pay the $25 monthly fee to be listed in order to pay the $50 to be reviewed. As I understand it, you only make a review available to others if the writer agrees.

    So let's say I've written the world's greatest-ever script, and yet... your reviewer finds it to be not-so-much. In that case, I might want to take it down from your site and reconsider if maybe my self-assessment wasn't quite right. I'm wondering how long that time-arc might be. Thanks.

    For all of you wondering, it's the same Black List, just an expanded version.

    I am Franklin Leonard. The same guy that created the first list while a development executive at Appian Way back in 2005.

    I don't know InkTip's service well, so I can't speak to the primary differences, nor do I see them as competition. We are offering something singular and for a, for the most part, lower price point.

    I believe InkTip provides in depth coverage. We do not. We provide a brief evaluation and then use the content of that evaluation (which the writer and choose to make public or keep private, entirely their prerogative) to identify the best scripts which are then spotlighted for our membership of, currently, almost 1200 film industry professionals, which is, I believe, far more than what InkTip can offer.

    More on that as I learn more about InkTip, but again, to be very, very clear, we do not view them as competition. From what I understand, their coverage service is quite strong.

    Franklin, what makes your site different from one like Ink Tip, for example.

    Inktip is crying real tears right now.

    This sounds really cool. Very well could become a major center for finding good screenplays, and allows the writers to be more selective (which will put everyone on their game). Have a few questions:

    Regarding readers: will it be possible to "request a reader or type of reader (say for genre)"?

    And how many readers would it take before industry players are notified?

    How are shady producers separated from legitimate smaller producers?

    Hi everyone, it's me. Franklin Leonard, creator of the Black List. As you might imagine, today's a pretty busy day, but I wanted to make myself available to answer any questions you have about the list.

    I'll be doing so over at the Black List blog. Probably the easiest way to ask those questions is by leaving them in the comments of this post: http://blog.blcklst.com/2012/10/ques...list-ask-away/

    But I'll be dipping into threads where this new paradigm shift is being discussed to answer questions and address misinformation.

    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.

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

    What's the point to any of this?

    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.
