  1. My short horror story The Lake Erie Siren will appear this June in the Spring 2019 edition of Mad Scientist Journal.

  2. When are the launch pad feature comp dates for 2018 going to be released?

  3. My script "Breaking Them Up" is currently a semifinalist over at Bluecat. It's in the Works in Progress section if anyone wants to take a look before I'm eliminated next round.

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

      I'm not sure if it was a "really good experience," but I submitted my first script there. The feedback wasn't nearly as helpful as I'd hope it would be.

       

      However, I was able to at least take away one bit of critique to incorporate for a rewrite.

       

      Best advice, give them as little help as possible to evaluate your script. I mentioned movies my script was similar to in the market place, and my evaluator went off on a tangent on the one he most likely reco...

  5. Finally saw "The Founder" last night. Thought it was a total dud. Anyone else see? Agree/disagree?

      Not all that thrilling. Not sure what could've made it better.

  6. I'm thinking of uploading my script to the "Works In Progress" section. Anything I should worry about?

      The worst I've seen is nobody responds. Otherwise, ppl give feedback. Others have removed because lurking producers have shown interest in producing.

  7. Is anyone here entering the Pilot Contest for 2017?

  8. Enjoyed Fantastic Beasts yesterday, now I'm enjoy the screenplay book, which was 1/2 price when pre-ordered at my local Book shop. Only £8.50. Can't complain.

      I felt the same way Axalon. And I was really looking forward to it.

  9. Question? The hungry list says that it will show loglines but when I click on it, it is the peoples names, their projects and reps. No loglines. Did I misread?

      Read a couple of them and enjoyed the reads, so congrats to the writers.

  12. Well, I'm in the Austin finals with a comedy. Nervous and excited to be heading to Austin (first time!). Anyone else going? I'd love to meet up...

  13. Exquisite timing. One week before The Martian comes out, Nasa announces they've found water on Mars.

      "Out of a 100,000 90% are trash." Which would leave ~10,000, so the question becomes what happens to THESE scripts/writers. If the 62 scripts being sold are all from those writers who are already connected does it even matter if we discover the unknown "Bob Dylan?"

  18. General question for the entire group...have a pilot script and a feature film I'm planning on starting and want to know which one you think would be the best one to start with? What works the best as far as querying agents, a feature or a pilot?

    1. Jarrean

      Jarrean

      I'd say start with the more commercial concept. From reading, I take you mean you're planning on writing both?

  21. Looks like I made the first cut for this year's Nicholl.

  22. I know it's just a teaser, but that JOY trailer is unrecognizable as the excellent script I read. Since when does she fire a gun?? I hope David O. Russell didn't just throw away all of Annie Mumolo's work

      It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. I enjoyed the script, but the trailer makes it appear to be a merging of Silver Lining & Am. Hustle.

      Oh, check out Mean Moms, too. It's cliche kinda but still a quick read.

      The New Favorite in Specs of 2015 still comes to mind. Parents Weekend was okay, along with Travel Buddies. I plan on reading Move That Body tonight.
