  1. Just looked at my profile for the first time in years and saw I only have 4 out of 5 stars :(

      Does that really matter? Don't you have an excellent rating?

  2. So this GASP pitch that Par just bought... it's SEA OF LIFE with the gender reversal in the roles. So why not mention that movie?

  3. If anyone wants to start a 2017 pilots thread in the appropriate place, I'll start posting scripts.

  5. Stupid question: what are the OWA's all about?

      Just a repped writer from an agency, unless you have an "in" with the company and they already like your writing and you fit their search.

      Considerably higher. Nowadays, they put it on the list but there's like 3 writers they know will move the needle and will seriously only consider them.

      Open Writing Assignments at studios, they are looking to fill with a writer. Though lately, 90% of them they just never bother filling because they know they'll never get made.

  8. On phone with producer regarding comedy series. He wants us to cut down on the drama, but wants "drama like stakes" in the pilot. #WTF

  9. my subscription is coming to an end. it usually gets cut off at my birthday (the 28th, tomorrow, that’s style for you) before it expires a month before the actual date. i don’t care. any reason i should stay around. i love when you talk, but it’s pretty quiet here without the influx at the end of the year and beginning of january. will being around you help me as a writer or should i go on, exploring the rest of the internet?

  10. How do you get discount tickets? Costco stopped selling the discount AMC tickets. And I heard that these discount tickets exclude movies by Walt Disney and Marvel.

  12. Why shoot film if your movie is set to premiere on HBO anyway? And at the cost of TWO shooting days...?

    1. Escapist

      Escapist

      Two days added to a 20 day schedule is HUGE. And HBO spends like $10 million on a GoT episode, so it's nothing to them.

  14. Hey, did you guys know that Effie's made 17 movies?!

    1. Escapist

      Exactly - it's a series, not a movie. And they are all playing parts in that drama.

      There's a fiscal reality to making a movie that I bet they HAVE conveyed to the director, but haven't shown. Shooting film is not an option, nor is flying to another state. Not on that budget. And Pete F knew she had already taken him to Efilm, so why do it again? I get he was trying to help but it was a failure in communication.

  16. Outlining an Action Comedy... Anyone have suggestions of their favorite buddy films?

  17. Got another question for my amazing TB friends. I have a screenplay that was produced just last year but still no agent or manager. I want to start sending out query letters and was wondering, do I have to use a new spec script or can I send out the script that was produced?

      Referrals from people who made the movie - producers, director, etc

  21. Those of you who have a writing partner, what methods do you typically use? For example, do you write together in the same room?

    1. Escapist

      Escapist

      When I've worked with a partner, we would brainstorm the outline together, then divide the script into chunks to write. Then we would swap pages. Finally, once we had a (usually immense) draft we would sit together and edit/rewrite.

      I was going to go with "American Spec Script"
