      From my experience, you do get knocked around a bit at first when pitching for OWAs. Until you are produced or sold and already established, you basically are doing a lot of work for free and probably getting your best ideas copped with no chance of actually getting the job unless you are just phenomenal.

       

      But it's good practice either way.

      I think RT added way too many reviewers. Before almost all the reviewers were reputable with tons of experience. Now I feel like it's mostly populated by blogs.

  3. Screenplay for drive has 89 pages. The movie is about hour and forty minutes.how do you show slow burning moments/scenes? Also the drive script suffers from he thinks, she thinks.

      Don't see my whole post. Not sure if there's a character limit.

      Spacing the action lines is one way. More space can be used for action that takes more time to show on screen. You can use white space to adjust the pace of your action.

       

      Off the top of my head, I made an example to illustrate:

       

       

      INT. Building - Day

       

      Jake slides to a stop and pulls his gun. He levels it at the window. BLAM BLAM BLAM. Glass SHATTERS. He shields his eyes as he's showered by glistening splinters.

       

      Then, footfalls.

  4. Need to read a script that has lots of people following other people or stalking them. Suggestions?

  5. Carson should close the loop on himself for adding Looper to his list of worst movies.

      Wow. I don't dislike PT Anderson, but The Master may be the worst film I have ever seen. Amazing. The man must clearly hate women, the story had no real plot, even the movie wandered around lost and I hated the main character. Complete crap.

      How was the script, if you've read it? I'm really curious to compare it to the film, given the differences between the script of "Will Be Blood" to the film.

      I have not. I don't have the interest to read it unfortunately.
