      they submit earlier spec samples that would show you are the right writer for that OWA. so action for action, etc. if they want a meeting, you meet, then come back with a take.

  9. Taking a poll here: What's your preference for a character who is not visible, but heard - speaking on the phone (via speakerphone for ex.): (V.O.) (O.S.) or (O.C.)?

  10. "Seventh Son" looks like it cost $250 million based on the trailer, but it's opening in early January? Is WB dumping it because it's Legendary or is it just a turkey?

  11. Anyone been reading about the self-promoting Die Hard 6 writer? His story is crumbling like an Inception construct...

  12. Any thoughts on shopping agreements? Good/bad/otherwise

      real options are for 10% of the purchase price, otherwise they aren't legal for WGA members or signatory producers.

  14. I think I'm using the term PRELAP wrong? I'm using it for a VO that starts before that scene begins. Is that correct?

      they use it a lot in TV still. pre-lapping the next scene onto this one.

  15. Wow, anyone else find "Now You See Me" more improbable than not? Disappointing.

  16. Guys and Gals...I need some awesome horror scripts please. I just had a crazy meeting with producers who want to produce a horror film, but refuse to watch them.

      STRANGERS 2 is a great read as well - no idea why they haven't made it yet...

  19. You know who needs more work? John Barrowman. Very entertaining. Need more Torchwood in my life.

  20. Young & Hungry Day! Woot woot!

  21. GOTHAM: A Batman show without the Batman. Intriguing idea, but they've got so much going against them right now it seems silly to even attempt.

      i'm not giving him a pass, i'm saying he did BUFFY and ANGEL. and yes, FIREFLY and DOLL HOUSE, neither of which I watched all of. still... I have more faith than not.

      SHIELD is the biggest tv hit in 4 yrs. it'll be around for a while, though I found the pilot clunky. but then so are a lot of pilots.

      the show needed to end with Dex dying to protect Deb - showing he was capable of love - and Deb becoming "Harry" to Harrison, teaching him the code as he was exhibiting Dex's traits...
