Hello?

I wanted to introduce myself, as it's 2018, and its a year for change! I have been screenwriting for years, but I am a scattered writer. I will be on a roll with a script, and then drop it to go onto another without completing either one. I live in Canada, and situated on the lovely Vancouver Island...

Hello from Chilly Northern Wyoming

I woke up to a gentle snow this morning, the pretty kind instead of last year which featured the bury-us-in- white-stuff kind. lol It's a warm 37 degrees and the sun is coming and going. #flamingoweatherreport (haha) I've introduced myself before but never on the first day. So here goes. I'm mostly a ...

Hi Pauline, we got snow here too this morning, but we are quite fond of talking about the weather here in Ireland so won't go there!! I'm also an author of novels, would love to connect and talk all things book publishing. Nice about dogs for disabled VETS, great cause!

Aspiring Screenwriter

April will be my 4th anniversary with S32 and this is my first time initiating an IY conversation. I've always had a love for writing and screenwriting has taken me to an entire different level. My faith-based scripts fall within the genres of drama, family, action and thriller/horror. The road has...

Claude Gagne

Amazon Studios sucks! Phil, what is your solution? Would screenwriters be better off to pitch here on Stage 32 or do you think it's just as fraudulent? What would be your advice to aspiring screenwriters trying to break in? I bet a lot of writers would love your take on this.

Uncle Phil

Claude, you've asked a very good question. I think I will post a video about this very Topic in the next couple of weeks. However, I'll provide you with a brief answer today. Let me begin with Stage 32 ...

InkTip has worked well for me as both a writer and as a producer.

Claude Gagne

Thanks Phil ... Yes, that`s great. Good luck with your crime thriller. I'm amazed at all your awards you've received over the years, Screenwriting is a hard nut to crack and if you don't try no one will know what you've got. I loved your video. Keep it up.

Uncle Phil

Claude

Thank you very much. Very nice of you to say.

Many entertainers have pretended to be single, thinking the fans prefer it this way.

Mae West was married before she started making movies but claimed to be "a spinster." Mae West said: "As long as I was single, I belonged to every man. At least, he could think there was a possibility." How many times had she been at the altar before 1932? https://maewest.blogspot.com/2018/01/mae-wes...

How do I sell my script to an existing studio?

I have a cartoon teleplay that is a continuation/soft reboot of a cartoon from the late 90's. I want to present it to the original studio in hopes of getting the show restarted. How do I find the right people to speak to? Is there any particular way to word a treatment or proposal that might make it...

Hi Joy, I think you'd have to get some kind of legal permissions, depending on how close it is to the original. I currently have a show now in development, and it basically happened because I found a...

Renee J Lukas

P.S. Most studios won't talk to you unless you have an "in" with a producer or agent, or the age-old "someone who knows someone" scenario. Keep us posted if you get a meeting, and again, good luck!

Uncle Phil

Renee is correct. I've been blessed to get my work in front of Studios but only with representation. Without it, you're pretty much dead in the water. So you may want to connect with a producer that w...

There were some truly epic cartoons back in the 90’s. Intrigued as to which one it is. Regardless, I wish you well with it :)
