      SNL Prince tribute tonight. And just about every radio station...

  3. my subscription is coming to an end. it usually gets cut off at my birthday (the 28th, tomorrow, that’s style for you) before it expires a month before the actual date. i don’t care. any reason i should stay around. i love when you talk, but it’s pretty quiet here without the influx at the end of the year and beginning of january. will being around you help me as a writer or should i go on, exploring the rest of the internet?

      is there anything better out there

  4. i think my dream job besides writer would be a twitter manager. here's the scenario. "listen keanu, john leguizamo said we need more diversity. send him a tweet about how you agree with him speaking up. also you're gonna be on the shaq podcast, so tell the fans. also say something about how you feel really at home right now, and we'll put up a picture." doesn't that sound like it would be so much fun.

  5. any new industry documentaries you know about?

    1. adlocke


      well i'll throw this out there. chance you'll catch it. Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show

  6. hateful 8 is kind of a piece of crap. i can't imagine a lot of "story" in 3 hours in a store.

      Glad your taste is so refined. Hope you enjoy whatever films meet your standards this holiday season!

      yeah, there's something out there i had my eye on.

      the blacklist. i got it for $10 round black friday. i for one think that's a sweet deal for 15 hours of entertainment.

  7. star wars comes out in a week and i haven't seen one ad for it on tv. weird huh?

      Star Wars IS merchandising that's like going to a football game and complaining about all the players running into each other. Disney the world's biggest entertainment conglomerate didn't plunk down 4billion dollars because they are lovers of good sic fi they paid that much because Star Wars is the biggest brand on the planet.

  8. How do you guys feel about getting (film) coverage? For or against it?

      I've never used a reader. I have friends who read my scripts (and I read theirs in return). I'd advise against paying readers generally, but if a writer feels the need to get feedback, she should get it from a pro with film/TV credits.

      Also, if you're able to get it into a prodco, it'll be judged against whatever else is circulating within that genre, so that's another reason for at some point to get professional perspective, whether friends in the biz or if you have to pay for it.

      I chose a reader who was recommended by a trusted producer friend. Worth the critique thousand times over.


  9. Is a World of Warcraft movie cool? Your thoughts.

      rings and the cgi monsters looked like they were probably as best as they could get. not too convincing. don't know any of the actors or characters so i wouldn't have that moment where you recogize them for the first time which is the whole point of these movies. i'm more of a bring books to life kinda guy, y'know where you already know the storyline but you look to catch the differences, but again, can't do that here. i used to play hollywood stock exchange as a kid so th...

      this was a long time ago and i'm surprised that's still a thing, but it seems like something i would of bought. i wasn't very good at it, so i don't know if that's any indicator of if everybody will like it. probably will crush over in china. overall, i think i could settle into it. the trailer didn't overload you with a whole lotta action, so it looks like they're trying to invest in the story. i'd say seems cool.

      I played a lot back in the day, from 04-08 or so. It has a huge built-in audience. Probably 20-40 million subscribers since 2004. Even more that play other MMOs and RPGs. I'd bet on it pulling in big $$. Skyrim, Runescape, Everquest, lots of potential worlds out there if this one does well.

  10. God...I wanna read Paul Sanford's script so bad. I'd give my place in heaven.

      I'm polishing it up for a staged reading the Austin is hosting this Saturday, so I'd like to wait before circulating it. But I appreciate the interest!

    3. adlocke


      and we appreciate you telling us about it. hope it wins nw.

    4. Nic8767


      Hope it wins, Paul. It sounds intriguing!


  11. Project Greenlight has a new episode tomm. Free for the weekend if you have Directv.

      Everyone in the world owes Matt Damon an apology. My god, Effie is obnoxious.

      she's like i went up to him all excited for a pat on the head because i told him he could get the stunt as he wanted it, but he didn't thank me. seems a little insecure like that's supposed to make you a good producer? then he's like you told me i could have the stunt as i wanted and she's like nononono. it's a mess. she ruined the movie. he's probably already thrown in the towel like whatever i'll just finish it, who gives a shit.

    3. benskelly2


      She says, Everybody likes working with me. Uhh, no they don't...they're just afraid to say anything to you! More than a little insecure, she comes off like she's always on the verge of a breakdown. Even when she smiles, she has two speeds: panic and rage. I thought Jason was spoiled at first, and maybe he is, but at least he gets along with most everyone. I love the First AD - he's the kind of unflappable guy you want in your corner.

  12. Could someone describe the bidding process for a spec script? What's that conversation like? Is it like a draft day war room scenario and can a studio back out of a bid, i mean obviously they can if the writer doesn't pick it up in time, but what are other elements that you know of?

  13. This is like the funniest thing i've ever read http://bit.ly/1K81ccP

  14. There should be a study on how long it takes to read the dictionary versus how long it takes to read a screenplay.

      Why did you write a script in Spanish? Is it a feature, a short, a pilot?

    3. admin


      TB can cover all your coverage needs in French, Spanish, Mandarin & English.

  20. Know of any scripts that have a serious tone where one character has a profound admiration for the main character like Shawshank Redemption?

  21. new eblog day!

  22. Check out my blog on the site. Hasn't had many readers. I'm thinking about tracking what it's like to write your first screenplay!

      Just write it, rather than write ABOUT it. You'll be glad you did. My $.02.

      Something tells me that every time an Adam Sandler movie is released, the domestic violence rate goes up.
