  1. The forum may have died, or perhaps its more due to the cliquiness on here that prevented new members from feeling welcome.

      The forum died?

  2. I need a logline critique - A man confronts mistakes of his past when his son goes missiong 3 hours before a nuclear bomb drops on his city... Does it make you curious?

      Well I'd say the main antagonist is time but then I'm sure y'all just rolled your eyes at that. The main antagonist is the father of a criminal who our protagonist lied about in his deposition. So it's sort of like a prisoners scenario. Antagonist lost his son in prison and now wants protag to feel his pain.

      Yeah, time = ticking clock. Antagonist needs to be personified so audience can relate. You know, DIE HARD, McLean was running out of time but still antagonist was key to what made that film great. So your story is revenge, good stuff. Actually DIE HARD 2 was revenge on McLean for killing Hans, but also heist film. Maybe revisit that one.

      That's even better that he's racing against two enemies - the ticking clock of the bomb AND the father of the criminal he put behind bars. That makes me more interested for sure!

  3. Just got a recommend. Many thanks to those who sent me notes upon notes.

  6. so i just got a review gushing about the script on every level. Still a double consider. Don't know what else can be done.

      To clarify, your "double consider" was for writer and concept? Or you just got a consider twice on different versions? I've made enthusiastic recommends but the prodco just wasn't into those types of stories.

    3. Reader George

      Reader George

      (cont'd) ..which is why I say coverage is something that helps producers make business decisions. Not necessarily a judgment on quality of a given work.

    4. Sly0712

      Sly0712

      It was for both writer and concept. I linked it in the works on progress page.

  7. And now, we wait....

      The script was okay. Excited to see how they recreated the tsunami though.

      Oh, to Rio (Ferdinand) I'm guessing someone hit him with something.

      Yeah some tosser in the stands threw something and cut him right above the eye.

  14. I tried to get into arrow but I just couldn't. It's a poorly written and poorly acted show. CW does it again I guess.

      Did you notice that they steal massive plot points directly from Batman Begins/Dark Knight?

    2. Sly0712

      Sly0712

      That's the thing. They're trying to force these complex ideologies and relationships on card board characters. Worst part is they're now trying to make us believe the huntress is a worth character when all she does is get angry and whine.

  15. Ever write that villain that's so fucked up you know he might just be your projection of your evil side?!

    1. dietgreentea

      dietgreentea

      I prefer it when I write a villain that even makes my evil side go, "dude's fucked up."

      Yup. Facts without sources just keep being thrown all over.
