    How are people doing post-Nicholl-announcement? Elated? Frustrated? Things moving fast? Slow? Not at all?

    it's the Dark Knight vs The Hottie & The Nottie

    it's Meryl Streep vs Lindsay Lohan

    it's Daniel Craig vs George Lazenby

    it's what's outside your window vs reality TV

    it's the grotto at the Playboy mansion on pajama night vs tapioca pudding day at Guatanamo Bay

    yeah, it's big

    And script title. Actual order in a Word table is:

    Name/Script Title/Genre/Phone/E-mail.

    We have never distributed loglines as I have always been leery of having hundreds of loglines sitting on executives', producers' and assistants' desks for a number of weeks or months. And perhaps sitting in a file for years.

    Obviously, some selection is made on the producer/assistant end. Names or titles or genres or area codes? What matters most? I would guess title and genre.

    Re: Nicholl 2008

    I'm wondering exactly what the people who get the list see: title only? title + genre? title + genre + logline? or ?

    Curious because people are getting varying numbers of script/logline requests... so what do the requestors have to go on?

    And if they already get the loglines, why do they ask for them via email?

    Greg?

    I was told don't write REQUESTED MATERIAL on package because anyone can write that and they usually open everything... read the cover letter, then decide to trash or keep.

    Cover Letter seems the most important thing.

    Sinnycal -- you've gotten more than 1 request for someone else's script or just the one? Sounds like a form letter and they just cut/paste the wrong name... probably requesting all the Semi scripts would be my guess.

    Kind of like when I have accidently sent the wrong name in an email because I went too fast and was shooting off 10 emails in a row.

    SinnyCal, just send your script, and include a cover letter which states "Thank you for requesting my Nicholl Semifinalist script (and then give your script's real name)." Clearly they are requesting Nicholl semis, so they won't blink at this.

    Make sure you write REQUESTED MATERIAL on the outside of the envelope or they might never see your cover letter.

    For your own records, I would note this initial error on their part. One little mistake is no reason to turn down a rep. But if this is the first of many, you may want to go elsewhere. I've had flaky reps before and it is not fun.

    I agree with Joe.

    I've been querying my Nicholl script (it had the Top 10% note on the bottom) and got like 4 reads... so don't wait for them to contact you either. Go For it!

    Sell! Sell! Sell!

    Send them YOUR script and pretend like their mistake never happened.

    You mean someone has you mixed up with another semi-finalist?

    No, I haven't had that.

    How....awkward.

    Thanks, Han! I like the way you think. And I hope to join you on the other side soon. (By the other side I mean that alternate dimension that opens up after the first sale).
