    Re: Good Notes Cheap

    Thanks for the in-depth notes, Bart. I appreciate your attention to detail. Got plenty more to work on.

    Buzz! Always good to hear from an O.G. Done Dealer.

    You've worked in filmcos so you know the deal. I've still got some motivated producers in my corner. They continue to move and shake and try to attach elements. We lost our top Lionsgate exec, during my rewrite, alas. So you know how that goes. But god knows they continue to produce a ton of content.

    Keep your fingers crossed and keep manning the phones, right?

    Is it true you wrote a feature for Lionsgate? What's the status?

    Hey folks...

    Got pretty busy on a rewrite, but I should be back to two day turnaround going forth.

    Thanks much-

    Hey peeps, hopefully 16 years of having this shingle buys me a little non-writing bandwidth...

    I've been making myself funny geeky tee shirts for years. A couple days ago I started putting it on Redbubble. No reason to keep my writing and art worlds isolated from each other, right?

    LMKWYT!

    Took another draft longer than I wanted it to, but yes, your tweak was a big help getting them to be happy with it.

    We're going out with it in January.

    Thanks again.

    Good Notes Cheap

    Got another great set of notes today. I feel like Bart just gets better and better over time. I disagree with my managers about aspects of a pilot I'm doing lap after lap on.

    Without having pre-warned Bart about the dispute in question, he's managed to spot their concern and has what I think is a pretty pitchable solution.

    We'll see if my managers agree.


    Thanks again old friend!

    This has been going great with the 15s. I feel like I'm saving some folks a lot of hassle by getting in early.

    But someone asked and I'll clarify, that doesn't mean I've stopped performing my core service of feature screenplay notes. Keep them features coming!

    Thanks much.

    Hey all... I'm going to append this to the thread top message in the thread...

    I've been getting some submissions lately where story analysis is almost besides the point. Like what the writer needs is general feedback on the way information is imparted to the reader.

    It strikes me that I should try to offer a different service to those who are brand spanking new to the craft, and who maybe are having a hard time finishing a first draft:

    So.... introducing:

    THE 15 PAGER:

    I'll read the first 15 pages of the project. We'll discuss writing style, and where the story seems like it's going. Hopefully getting notes early will save some people a lot of headache rewriting.

    Introductory DD rate $40 US via this ExtHollywoodDay @ aol.com as the pay-to on Paypal.


    Thanks much, DD.

    Received my feedback/notes from ExtHollywoodDay.

    I'd use his services again. Insightful, in-depth and to the point. I knew this script had issues and he confronted them head on with tough questions and possible scenarios. Today I sent a response email with some questions and such, I look forward to discussing things further with him. Well worth his rate IMO.

    I sent the same script to Craig Kellem and was disappointed. I felt like he only provided proof reading type of feedback (grammar/spelling/very minor dialogue adjustments). As for story, structure, plot, theme and such he praised the script and kept reiterating that it was a solid piece. Not worth the rate I paid IMO.

    I'm just outlining my experiences with two different people, not looking to debate intentions or results.
