  1. My comical non-spoiler take on the Mad Men Season 6 opener: http://tinyurl.com/c2ert3x

  2. Is Gale Ann Hurd really querying the Google Group list?

      Yes. She does that sometimes, but forgets that she's giving away her email address in the process. Hopefully people don't bombard her ...

  3. Anyone else read the Mayor of Shark City? Deftly handled...I'm actually really impressed. Thoughts?

      Yeah... great way to pull someone into the script. I am definitely going to read tonight/finish it!

  4. Dudes, seriously watch The Americans tonight and tell me if I'm wrong that it has huge potential.

      I think it has potential. Any show whose foundation is about living a lie is usually compelling. BUT -- those flashback scenes were HORRIBLE. At least make your characters look 20 years younger. ;p

  5. Boy oh boy, effing FOX... not only is their news division bullshit, so is their programming people. Really? Ben and Kate cancelled? Suck my what, Fox!

      Well, Nat Faxon has an oscar and just got $10mil for he and Rash's The way, way back at Sundance... it sucks for Ben and Kate ... but Faxon and company will not be crying over their wads of new cash

  6. So... I think I missed something. What happened with ScriptShadow? I've been busy with work and house buying and apparently ScriptShadow is no longer reviewing scripts...? He's received death threats from pasty-skinned writers for years. What changed this time?

      ready to produce... then that would have been a different story. I think new writers need to be promoted and that's why I love Tracking-Board for their promotions and honesty

      I went to SS now and then and it was good snarky analysis and some solid tips, but nothing mind blowing. I think he's blown his wad but if he can find new writers and promote never before seen scripts that people love, he may be able to rise from the ashes. I just think he didn't stick to his "brand" and it fell apart. He is not a producer, he was a script coverage guy. Now, if he worked as a development exec or as a dev coordinator and secretly worked his way up and was...

  8. Our spec ROCK 'N' ROLL LOVE STORY is getting traction at a couple prodcos. It's definitely a long shot but it's Christmas, hope springs eternal...lol!

  9. I like the Hit List more this year because I'm on it. Love me for my shameless honesty.

  14. As I prep for a move to LA, I'm looking for living suggestions. Thoughts? On a budget (i'm quitting my job to move), but I want to be close to the "action" and hopefully get an internship or a PA job right away. Thanks in advance!

      Learn social media skills and digital marketing - it's in demand at ALL the studios. Get an internship or paid job working for a company in AZ that has a great online/social media presence and learn from them all there is learn about Facebook Open Graph, Pinterest Pins and other digital marketing mechanisms... it's not that hard but definitely in demand here in LA and will get you working on a lot here at a major studio if you got some skillz....

  15. My spec SAM DINKLE: SECRET AGENT went out today - fingers crossed! :)

  16. Calling an upcoming spec I REFUSE TO CURSE IN THIS TITLE. I'm so far beyond caring about a title that thinks "fuck" makes it more interesting.

  17. Question to you all: I'm moving to LA in late December. What could I be doing NOW to make my resume look better? Learn Final Cut? Master Pro Tools? Learn how to write coverage? Thoughts and ideas please

    1. mikeyP_73

      mikeyP_73

      Save your money before moving out (which you probably are doing) and intern for free for a couple of prodcos/agencies/networks/studios/etc in your home state that have ties to LA or that are shooting in your home state. Make some connections, get references - prove you are reliable and hard working... as well as nice to work along side of every day =)

  18. Like to thank The Tracking Board for their coverage services and making my spec, MARROW, one of their recommended scripts in April. Even though I felt the script was solid, their coverage pointed out things I had not considered and it helped make it even better. Thanks again!

      Congrats! And a very humble thank you to the TB! Nice!

  19. Just read Snow White and the Huntsman (draft that sold). Mucho interesante. Didn't look too familiar in the trailer. How much was changed?

    1. mikeyP_73

      mikeyP_73

      I am in the same boat ... I loved the Huntsman backstory and arc better in the original... I think this movie was blah/boring... and Rotten Tomatoes agrees... 46% rating

  20. Did anyone notice at the end of the Dark Knight Rises trailer Batman and Selina(Catwoman) appear to trying to evade two homing missiles.

  22. Suggested scripts to read or movies to watch with “Strong female leads”?

  23. Thinking of cranking out my latest rough draft in a remote location, huddle up in a hotel room or sublet/rental. What do you guys/gals/trolls think?

      If you know what "your story is about" and turn off your inner critic and crank pages... then it's a great thing... Have fun!
