    Here’s a Friday Question that became an entire post.

    It’s from Marka.

    I've wondered about table reads and how much you can trust them. Especially when you're directing and aren't familiar with the cast.

    I assume there are folks who laugh at things that

    Pitch Deck
    by CrissCross
    I've been asked to come up with a Pitch Deck and was wondering if there is a specific program that is used. I have never done one but I have a Producer putting one together for a script I optioned and now had a development person as me for one. All in the span of a couple days. Thanks

    WANDAVISION -- My review
    by RSS Feed
    DISCLAIMER: I know I’m not the target audience.

    DISCLAIMER 2: I am not fully briefed on the Marvel Comics Universe.

    DISCLAIMER 3: I will probably get more hate comments than a anti-Trump post.

    And that brings me to WANDAVISION.
    I watched the first...

    My Black List Experience
    by JoeNYC
    As most of you know, in 2020, I was working on two screenplays. An action adventure titled AMERICAN SLAVES and a teen romantic comedy.

    I don’t like to send screenplays out to contests, the Black List web site, or the Hollywood marketplace unless I know that the screenplay is strong and...

    How significant are "Special Thanks" credits?
    by irwinpfletcher
    I wrote the first draft of an indie adaption for a producer (i've posted on here before about it). Several other writers have come on for rewrites and the script bears no resemblance to what I wrote. It's an indie, so obviously at this point I'm not expecting a written by credit.
