    Re: Will you consider rating my blcklst hosted script?

    Hi all, seems like a cool idea... While I wait for my review on the blklst for this script, I'm open for any reviews. If the log line intrigues you, I'd love some feedback.

    Btw... The log line is something I have been working on with other members from this same forum, so anyone who reads the script is welcome to help with that as well.

    Thanks in advanced.

    "A family man"
    Horror/mystery/crime thriller
    104 pages

    Feeling his loved ones slipping away, an emotionally-unstable surgeon develops a macabre method of "adopting" local townspeople as his surrogate family. How long can he play fantasy before the local authorities uncover his crimes?

    The script I just posted received all 7s (with the exception of an 8 for character), with a warm review I've made public.


    https://blcklst.com/members/scripts/view/32800

    Please consider reading or rating it. I'd be happy to provide feedback for any DDPro members.

    Thank you!

    Prospects:
    This is a very powerful coming-of-age story that would very likely attract A-list talent looking for challenging but fulfilling roles. The plot, themes, visual nature and social commentary present in the script give it strong commercial viability and critical potential.

    I just submitted a pilot to the Black List and got an overall score of 7. After I finish this rewrite, I'll consider rating other scripts. I just have one question. How do I do it? Some of the script links in this thread no longer work and I can't click on some of the others.

    Good morning, folks.

    Congratulations to anyone who has received something useful and/or career-mobilizing during this contest/fellowship season.

    I've entered the Blacklist's year-long competition against myself once more, with a draft that responds to feedback received from both earlier Blackllst submissions as well as the sets of Nicholl memos made available this year.

    If you find the logline for my psychological drama to be of interest, please have a look. It previously had scored an 8 for dialogue and an 8 for character.

    CLAY TOMMY: A young, troubled man, whose delusions of grandeur and social position have allowed him to craft a hermetically-sealed imaginary world in which he is literally the best at everything there has ever been, is exploited by a local art dealer into creating priceless pottery after discovering that the boy is, unwittingly, the best there will ever be at one thing.

Rushmore became an obsession and a labor of love. The guy died basically penniless---much of his estate had to be sold to pay off debts incurred while he toiled on Mt. Rushmore. And his family doesn't get a dime from it. It's really a fascinating story, given his upbringing in a strict Mormon family.
    Way to go, Limama!

    Thanks in advance to those who give it a glance.
    I don't think anyone's had any success posting scores on this forum. I'd definitely start querying with "Blacklist 8" in the subject line.

    I looked through other log lines, I don't see the trend anywhere else, I will remove the compassion, thanks.

    The Stretch Armstrong project is famous for being in "development" for so long, and nothing will ever come from it.

    I'd work on the logline. Don't compare your script to other shows (that was told to me by a well known manager). Also, a Stretch Armstrong project has been in the works in Hollywood for years.

    Re: Will you consider rating my blcklst hosted script?

    taking the plunge (finally) . . .

    i have two period scripts -- one a feature biopic and the second a one-hour pilot -- up on the site at the moment:

    still waiting on the paid reviews for both but my pilot already has several industry downloads and one industry rating (a 7, which is about what i would have predicted)

    [UPDATE: my two reader evaluations both also rated it a 7 overall with 8s for several elements, which makes it a current Top Pilot (yay)]

    "On the whole this script is an impressive piece of work, offering a realistic perspective on a car company that manages to be both compelling and authentic, in feeling if not in fact. This is a script that would work perfectly for basic or premium cable -- the former with AMC, for the obvious comparisons to Mad Men in both content and style, and the latter with either HBO or Showtime, given its intelligent and complex plots. Though it would benefit from a greater emphasis on the personal lives of its characters, it constructs a compelling enough story out of their business lives that it remains a largely strong pilot. It will have little trouble garnering attention and agents seeking smart, engaging material that trusts its audience's intelligence."

    "This script could do well as a Premium Cable or internet drama for its period authenticity and diverse class viewpoints of a quintessential American industry. It recommends its writer for staffing on a similar show."

    and the feature [. . . still waiting for some love]

    Re: Will you consider rating my blcklst hosted script?

    Hey all, finally figured out why our script (Alice in Zombieland) wasn't available for writers to download from blcklst. Have fixed it now, so if you want to grab it you can do so here: https://blcklst.com/members/scripts/view/28082

    Also got another review back. Number was lower than hoping, but comments were generally positive and helpful so can't complain...

    "This script has some really thrilling, magical, and (above all) coherent and easy-to-follow action sequences. It's far more action-packed than most Alice in Wonderland adaptations, and it wears this action/adventure badge with pride. Alice in this story is a consummate "badass," and has a lot in common with Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor -- two other fantastic action heroes ripped out of their comfort zone by forces beyond their control. This script seems to effortlessly accomplish what other action-packed remakes of fantasy stories (such as Snow White and the Huntsman) failed to do, which is transform a largely inactive protagonist from the source material into a much more active one that is easier for modern audiences to root for. This quality, and the well-choreographed and fantastical fight scenes that show it off, is probably this script's greatest strength. The ways in which the story plays with preconceived notions about the Alice in Wonderland story to create a "twisty-turny" conspiracy plot-line is also clever, and helps this script stand out from other adaptations of the same source material. "Nothing in Wonderland is as it appears," says the Bishop in a particularly prescient line, and in the case of this script that is certainly true."

    The rest of the evaluation is available online, if you're interested

    Since you've got the story rights, you might think about also creating a (creative nonfiction-style) pilot for a three or four-part series for a cable outlet like the History Channel.

    Good luck with it!
