    WEST SIDE STORY: My review
    by RSS Feed
    Okay, first off, a whole bunch of disclaimers.

    I watched the movie off a screener not on a gigantic theater screen. The only way to get the full effect of the film is to see it at a theater.
    Practically every review has been rapturous. And not just from critics. Friends...

    Have you ever tried to make your logline NFT?
    by PhysicalRice
    Hello everyone, I am Chen, a screenwriter from Taiwan. The environment for professional screenwriters in Taiwan sucks, and I've always wanted to do something to improve it.

    Does anyone know if the original writer of a film makes money on its sequel?

    Not in terms of first refusal to write the sequel or if the writer has taken a passive payment and then stepped aside but regarding the characters created by the writer in the original film. So for example, if...

    IP & Standing Out In A Crowd
    by Bono
    What ways in 2022 are you thinking of using IP to get your work seen, read or bought? I was listening to a manager on a podcast talk about how it's all a form of "vetting." How referrals, contest wins, an idea being popular in book or video game or other media forms -- is all a way for managers...

    Do all movies need to have a message?
    by Acooljt
    I was looking through a screenwriting website earlier on how to structure your story and it stated something along the lines of plotting your message in the first act, yada yada yada. My question is, does a movie have to have a point or a message? Can’t it just be to entertain? I’d hate to force...

    Too Many Ideas
    by Bono
    Some of you think of one or two ideas a year or write first idea you think of -- I honesty envy that approach. I used to be like that. I'd have one idea and write it. Or at least get excited by an idea and bang it out.

    Now I go through my giant list when I look for new ideas, cross out...
