  1. What happened to all the new things that were supposed to happen with this site? Is it still going under - or are changes around the corner?

      Hello? Are the lights even still on? Just trying to weigh weather to pony up $$$ for another year.

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

      My 5-star rating gives me free access to the TB Club Lounge. Thirsty Thursdays are UNREAL . . . unlimited wells and $1 jumbo shrimp cocktails.

      Hope it does too, Jibs!

       

      Also, does this mean the chat room is coming back?

      On twitter from the Editor in Chief - hadn’t seen info about the whole site though.

       

      If it is gonna shutter - better let subscribers know ASAP.

  6. Anybody interested in that Scriptbook thing - I got one and talked about it on Twitter. @RobBurke_Jr

      The nut of it: Not a useful tool for me as a writer in its current state.

       

      But, could see how the info might be of interest to non-writer industry pros.

  7. Testing out the black list. Anyone have a really good experience with the site?

      If you looking for a place to get quality coverage on your script - the BL is not your huckleberry. Franklin himself has said that the BL's purpose is not to provide coverage. It can get eyes on your script - but even then, with great scores, there's no guaranty anyone's going to care.

  8. I know live theater hardly EVER translates well to video - that said, here's a vid of a 10-minute play I wrote that's been put on stage here in the States and in Dubai (so far). The sound quality ain't THX-quality, but if you are looking for something different to watch:

      Thanks, CB. Was a personal piece . . .if that's not blatantly obvious with the ending.

  12. Wrote a script centering around a guy who makes a Faustian bargain with a creature he finds in a storage container, managed to make a little teaser for it:

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

  14. 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

  15. Blacklist read recommendations? Usually it's pretty easy for me to find scripts on the list that impress but this time, after quite a few false starts, I've been struggling to find anything I want to read (or, if I did read, glad that I did).

  17. Create50: The Impact… Can you write a two page script? Deadline looming http://www.chrisjonesblog.com/2015/12/create50-the-impact-can-you-write-a-two-page-script-deadline-looming.html

      As someone who was part of the first one of these - it's a pretty cool process seeing your script go to the big screen. I don't like this premise at all - but interested to see what they end up cobbling together.

  18. Informal Script Format Poll: Bold scene headings or not bold scene headings?

    1. Jaco

      Jaco

      I bold - but quite okay with scripts that don't.

  19. I don’t normally toot my own horn, but... my western script “DEATH OF A LEGEND” is the Grand Prize Winner in the StoryPros Screenwriting Competition, beating out almost 1,000 other screenplays. Tracking Board coverage from DB and JT helped me improve the script, so a very big thanks to them. I’m hoping the win will help me in my quest to find a manager.

  20. As writers, you might like this short film that I worked on. It stars Paul Scheer, Natasha Leggero, Kristen Schaal, Ken Marino & Milo Ventimiglia.

  21. If I'm completely honest, I feel like I've lost my ability to write. I haven't been able to flow at the level I used to be able to in a very long time.

      Try writing something other than a screenplay - I was in your position not long ago and tried writing a play - once finished, it helped both with confidence and creativity.
