  7. Hi everyone - I'm playing footsie with one of the Gotham Group managers and am wondering if anyone here has any experience with them or with this kind of a setup of a management/production company. I'm currently with a London-based agent who I feel isn't pulling their weight as much as they could, so I'm tempted to move. Would I still need an agent in parallel to this? What are some of the things I ought to look out for? Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.

  11. So The Rover's budget was ~$12 million and it made $69K opening weekend. Probably won't make more than $100K in its total theatrical run. Is there any hope for it to recover its budget? How much money can this movie potentially make on VOD/rental? Could it ever make up for its budget or is it just a dud for the studio?

  13. Listed on front page as a sale...Centers on a group of celebrated NASCAR drivers who use their unique expertise to aid a Nazi resistance team. Only problem is, NASCAR didn't exist until 1948. Unless this is another time loop concept.

      Haha. I actually came on here to delta my rant, but since you've already commented. Yeah I agree. More than anything it just bothers me when people will do so very little for something they supposedly love. And yep, props to Margie (if she's here too - thanks for chiming in). Thanks for listening to Red's Rant!

      ...success stories? How are you not seeing them? Are you intentionally avoiding them, so as not to see them? Show me any other competition out there that is doing what the TB guys are doing. Show me any other one out there that is even close! Seriously. I just... ugh.

       

      Sorry for the rant, it just boggles my mind sometimes. Also, makes me feel like I need to go get an account over there.

       

      also, should note, to not cause a stir - this is my two cents, not the site, or a...

      What blows my mind is when I see something like this (http://bit.ly/1ncj21W) and think to myself - holy shit! It's happening, shits getting real - people are actually kicking ass and taking names!!! Careers are starting! For real!

       

      Then I stumble upon something like this (http://bit.ly/RjJjyQ) and I just cringe. Can't figure out the competition page, complaining that there is an entrance fee (which goes to the readers btw, not to TB), not seeing any s...

  19. Just want some advice here. I want to upload my script, but the ending isn't quite finished as I am re-writing at the mo.

  21. looking for any surrealist / magical realism specs to read & films to watch. the headier the better, as long as its executed well. any suggestions?

  22. If you are an aspiring screenwriter who wants desperately to tell the stories that pop in your head at all hours of the day, the FUCKING IGNORE all this nonsense, about what is a sale and what isn't. Jesus. The people talking about this the most, won't be around in two years. Get a bottle. Stand in a lightning storm and pray you capture it. Or just write great stuff. You do the math.

      hink people are saying, woah, woah, woah, pump your brakes guys, don't drink the koolaid here. Too many people tend to already blindly follow the herd in this digital age. Lets be smart enough to make our own decisions. Should people research and know their industry - absolutely. Will an option being reported as a sale, or a sale reported as an option, or any combination effect another writers ability to succeed. Absolutely not.

      And Stringer, I don't think that's what people are saying here. I think they're simply saying if the only reason anyone writes is to get rich, this industry is better off without them. Having someone claim that their is a "hope machine" harming this industry is, as I said above, ridiculous. If it was just an aspiring guy sounding off in frustration it'd be fine, but instead it's a bitter aspiring guy pointing fingers at others for his failures. That's where I t...

      I agree with what you guys are saying as well. It's just a matter of understanding, and doing so of your own accord, not doing so because some angst guy tells you that you should be. Everyone should study and understand the industries they want to work in. But the idea of a "hope machine" being a substantial problem in this industry is just ridiculous.

      If you're only reason for writing (or doing anything) is because you want to get rich quick, it's not going to work out for you.
