  1. Getting a little concerned that I haven't recieved an email from TB coverage to confirm they got my script. Sent it Sunday 2am Uk time. Saturday 7pm Los Angeles time i think. Is it because it's the weekend that I may not have heard anything? has anyone else had this problem?

      It takes a few days. I think it was about three days before I got my confirmation.

  2. Young and Hungry 2012 list up, wooooo!

      This time last year I would not have made any list. So to be included on this one and recognized for all the hard work I put into my spec is a wonderful thing. Much thanks.

  3. Thank you so much for your replies. A follow up. My script is not comic related. It's an action comedy. We can go out with it during the last weeks of July or in September - what say you? With July being vacation time for many, yet September is deluged with scripts and people not having cash left. Supposedly. Any truth to that?

      Actually, September through October is when they are using the last of their development cash before the end of the year. The town is pretty much dead Thanksgiving through the second week of January.

  4. PROMETHEUS - Stunning to look at, extremely engaging in parts, fantastic Fassbender, but ultimately muddled and pointless. Shame. Wanted it to be phenomenal.

      Wanted to love it. Didn't. Never delivers on the promise of the premise, sub plots are muddled, as are character motivations. Supposedly educated characters doing stupid things just to service the plot... I could go on and on.

  6. Gotta say, its kind of exciting watching the TB guys & Gals break new talent via their coverage program! Go new writers, go!!!

      Thanks for the well wishes everyone. I always felt MARROW was a good script, but the response its getting has been better than I was prepared for and nothing short of amazing. Hope dietgreentea and I represent the TB crowd well.

  7. with the script coverage, do i just send out the script and everything get an analysis, or do i have to write the logline, character descriptions?

    1. RazorBlade1968

      RazorBlade1968

      I just gave them a log line with the script. That was it. The coverage (if you get the full package) will come back to you with THEIR logline (the way a reader would logline it for their boss) and the coverage, etc. They will actually do the character breakdown, etc. You just need your script and the logline.

  8. Check the April newsletter for my script COUNTERPOINT getting a lovely TB Recommendation! (self-plug because I'm completely shameless)

  9. Just had a twenty minute convo with Robert Kamen about Taken, he said the main reason he thought it worked so well is because there is no b-story...

    1. RazorBlade1968

      RazorBlade1968

      B Story is usually the love interest anymore, or the overall bad guy story; i.e. BOURNE. The A story is Jason Bourne trying to solve the mystery of who he is and what he is and all the action that comes with. The B story is the soap opera within the intelligence agency - house oversight committee, secret ops without approval, etc. The love interest with Franke Potente is just window dressing for the A story. But I think that's a good example of an A/B story that works.

  10. Just read a script where the writer spellchecked the word "prodigies" into "porridges". The word "porridges" is now in the title.

    1. RazorBlade1968

      RazorBlade1968

      I better check my porridge references and make sure they don't say "prodigies" now. Crap.

  11. FIVE AGAINST THE BULLET sounds an awful lot like Johnny To's THE MISSION (1999)

      I'll have to find it. THE MISSION is about five hit men assigned to protect a mob boss after a failed hit attempt. There's friction at first, then the bond between the men grows as they fend off each hit attempt, then is put to the test when the mob boss tells them to kill one of their own after he has an affair with the mob boss' wife. Great film. Chris McQuarrie was doing a US remake, but it never moved forward.

  14. Alright, lets talk specs - who is reading what? Who is loving what? Who is on the cusp?

      Reading HELLBOUND. Started out not liking it, but it's getting better now that we're in hell.
