    shooting-script Three page Horror Script (pool shark)

    In other words... It's a little HOMAGE to those with paruresis.

    shooting-script Three page Horror Script (pool shark)

    LOL. I get what you're saying... But NOBODY is going to know the MAN has paruresis from what you've written thus far. Nobody is going to get that reference at all unless there's some exposition about it somewhere but since the film AIN'T about him? You don't need it.

    acting Parker Posey: ‘None of my indie movies made money, so it became like, “Why hire her?”’

    An icon of Nineties indie film courtesy of her roles in ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Party Girl’, Parker Posey talks to Adam White about grief, time travel and how the offer of a part in an Adam Sandler movie showed her that she and Hollywood no longer saw eye to eye.

    pre-pro Charlie Kaufman Says Netflix Didn’t Ruin Movies: ‘Studios Ruined Movies’

    “I was looking for something that somebody would let me direct and it’s easier to get something made if it’s based on a book, or a comic book, or a movie that’s already existed,” Kaufman told the Wall Street Journal.

    pre-pro Guide To A Virtual Cinema Release For Indie Filmmakers

    “We returned to LA with a much clearer vision for the script, and after a few meetings and drafts things started falling into place. We knew we had something special with the script, so I was determined to raise the money. I called well over 100 people in my network who I thought might be...

    As a talent manager and CEO of Artistic Endeavors, an exclusive talent management company specializing in management and production for actors, writers and directors, I especially love that indie films give relatively unknown but brilliant actors a chance for their talent to be recognized in...

    I hear ya... But late last night? I happened to see a video on the news of fireworks... Some very LARGE fireworks going off all over LA. We didn't have ANY around here at all.

    The shorts DO and WILL improve your writing and dialogue... Absolutely. Like I said... I would NEVER and WILL NEVER discourage anyone from doing ANYTHING in this business. In fact? Most of the time? I just keep my mouth SHUT when they tell me their plans. Why? Because I don't want to burst their...

    LOL. There are examples of shorts that get people into the business... I grant you that but it's still like winning the lottery. What YOU'RE telling me is very much what wannabe screenwriters tell me all the time when I tell them I don't think their spec can sell. They IMMEDIATELY point out the...

    Why should THAT be of NOTE? I keep feeling that you're TRYING to TELL ME SOMETHING. If so? Just spit out. LOL. I don't think that needs to be of any NOTE at all. Original is in the EYE of the BEHOLDER. I look at things with an eye toward them actually being fleshed out as features and...

    I know your postings well enough (I used to be on here all the time many years ago albeit under a different username) to know what you meant. It certainly ain't easy to make that perfect version of the movie in our mind's eye. But with the accessibility of everything we need to make movies...

    No that's true... I see the sense of entitlement everywhere... Just mentioning it as part of the problem.

    Film Entrepreneur New to Forum Looking to Do Big Things

    Well like I said... I don't mind helping. I don't mind telling people what I know to be true about writing screenplays and the business side but you always have to take everything you read or hear with a grain of salt because (especially in this industry) one size does NOT fit all. However...

    You might want to reread my #19 reply. Apparently, the site was in fact a scam and the guy made off with over a million dollars in bitcoin. LOL.

    Film Entrepreneur New to Forum Looking to Do Big Things

    I've found that it's quite EASY to help someone think outside the box... Some people just simply do NOT want to do it. Another problem I've seen throughout the years is how screenwriters wanting to break into the business simply cannot be brutal to their protagonists. They are just way too nice...

    story The Dark Site

    I've seen that on television... Where they set up the child predators and expose them. But where's the fun in that? LOL. I'd rather have a sociopath of some kind decide to try and get his $50K back since he got ripped off. Maybe someone in prison who's about to get out and needs someone taken...

    You got me thinking about all this again so I started doing some surfing... Here's an interesting article about most of these sites are in fact, SCAMS: Can You Really Hire a Hit Man on the Dark Web? And now after a year of tinkering with this idea? Now I'm thinking about a group of people who...
