  1. Has everyone been swamped lately? The chat rooms have been so quiet!

      writing too! original tv pilots and feature lengths! I's a busy bee! :)

  2. Okay, have a screenwriting competition coming up and have to have an entirely original script ready to mail out on the 12th. So far I have the idea and 50% of the outline finished. If i do 12 pages a day that leaves me with 1 day to panic. Think I can do it?

      Don't ask us, you're the only one who can answer that question.

       

      Best of luck!

      I'd say wait to submit until next year. You don't want the first draft to be your first impression. Take your time and rewrite until it's in the best shape possible to submit.

      You guys are all right, but I love the pressure. If nothing else, it's forcing me to write. This way I get a good draft done and then spend the next six months brushing it up.

      What kind of job are you looking for?

  7. Question for the team...want to write a script based on a book that I HATE...which is why I want to write the script and change everything and make it better than it was before. IF I change it enough and make it a totally new story, how do I go about making sure I'm safe? The book is more of an inspiration than a true adaptation...suggestions?

      Ideas can't be copyrighted only the execution of some of the key components. ie dialogue, specific character/story beats etc. If you like the premise of the book but want to turn it on its head, then you could be okay. BUt if you intend to use the author's characters or unique story structure in a way that they are still recognisable, I'd say choose another project to spec. BTW Hollywood producers buy scripts and books that "they hate" all year round.

      I hate the book because it's such an interesting idea but the author got about 755 of the way through and did a great job and then phoned in the climax and resolution. The core elements are interesting but based enough on historical fact that I can play fast and loose with her characters without compromising the idea behind it. I guess I'll just finish it and then see what I think.

      Oh and before anyone worries about rights, etc, this was orignally an assignment for a class I took in college to adapt a book. I haven't really decided what to do with it yet, if anything at all, just curious at this point.
