      Really smart move for both! Biggest director + biggest franchise = no brainer!

      I believe tomorrow they are finalizing the confirmations of all of the last pilot entries. If you don't receive conf that the order is "closed" hit them up tmrw night after 8pm PST.

  7. A few episodes into Sense8 and compelled to watch more, though I can't explain why. Anyone else hooked? Payoff(s) worth the investment?

      Binged watched this with a few people from work. To be honest, story doesn't start till 75% through, and then rushes to an ending that's not compelling, original, or satisfying. I'd avoid this show at all costs. Too much good content in the world to fall into this hole.

  8. Snuck in my pilot just before the launch pad deadline.

      Chatted with TB guys this morning. Guess the site crashed Sunday and today on and off and a bunch of people couldn't enter, so once they got the site back up, they kept pilots there and features.

  9. Hey guys. Got a bunch of A-list agents waiting for the english version of my script before a fortnight. Any advice on whom would be best to fast track typos corrections of 110 pages in about two days?

      Use the coverage proofreading package here on TB. It's who we send all of our stuff through at my day job for typos/clean ups.

  10. I'm freaking out. I know this happens all the time, but I am about 1 or 2 months away from finishing a script that has the EXACT SAME CONCEPT as another project that was announced in the trades. I am very proud of this script and feel it is the best thing I have written. But I can already hear the rebuttals, and I don't want to waste my time working on something that seems to be dead out of the gate. What would you guys do?

  11. Thank you to whoever recommended Bloodline!

      Agreed. Started it Friday night, and about half way through the season today. Slow burn, but so good!

  12. Hard nosed female protagonists that you like. Go.

  13. We got a "Consider" on our TB Coverage for the first draft of our psychological thriller. Great notes to apply to the rewrite.

  14. So Blacklist has been running their "Featured Scripts" for a good many months now. Can anyone shed any light on any progress with any of these scripts be it development of the script or the launch of the writers career in another aspect?

      Keep in mind, Nightingale was already in motion pre-blacklist. Something the hype machine failed to mention when it was announced.

  15. Is Neil Blomkamp the new Richard Kelly?

      admin

      I don't think we're quite there yet. Hopefully his team can get him back on track to realizing flashy images and cool designs do need a story once they're longer than a music video.

  16. Hey guys, that Sony hack was a pretty dark day for the industry, and I think it's irresponsible to bring to light anything damaging to those affected. Also, most of those items that were deleted already existed (as they were not actually from any hack of any kind, but were already part of the community.

      Do not be that guy who literally requests the removed documents in the thread I post informing everyone why I've removed them.

  17. Does Safety Not Guaranteed receive the same level of interest if it wasn't loosely inspired by a real classified ad? Just curious...

      What's to say you can't take an ad out yourself :-)

      That is curious. I remember when it was being buzzed about around town, a lot of that buzz was in fact built on the ad being something real. Of course, the execution of the script far outweighs the add, or buzz over it, but I'm positive the ad perked ears, the pitch perked reads, and the script perked buyers.

  19. I'm curious how an unrepped writer got his stuff into producers and studios... any know more?

  20. How did everyone do in their Oscar pools?

      I ended up with 20 of 24. Didn't expect Redmayne to beat out Keaton or Big Hero 6 to beat HTTYD2.

  21. Next question for writers: have you ever received payment for net points on the back end of a deal? I'd be stunned if anyone has, but asking anyway.

      Yep, box office bonuses and award bonuses are the two guaranteed additions.

      Working for one of the biggest management companies in town, I can tell you "backend" usually only tends to make it to the overwhelmingly established guys. I mean, Peter Jackson had to sue to get his backend on the Lord of the Rings films because the studio was still claiming losses on their billion dollar franchise. So, I can say, when it comes to backend negotiations it is usually done knowing they likelihood of receiving anything is next to nothing.
