Script Consultation with an Industry Executive - Kristina C.

I was very glad to schedule a consultation recently with Kristina C. of Sunswept Entertainment, regarding one of my feature scripts, and I can definitely recommend her as an insightful consultant for those writers looking for tangible feedback from an industry pro.

She provided a very thorough analys...

Pitch presentation flow

I'm working on the 2nd draft of my pitch presentation after a pitch session. One of my lower scores was "presentation and format". One thing I'm trying to figure out is how to weave in the "industry" stuff like logline, genre, and showcross. Is it okay to just say "the show's logline is ___, the gen...

Emily J, thanks for the response! That helps.

Hey Harry! That is a great question. I did a free webinar on pitching that you can find here. My hope is you can find some info there as well: https://www.stage32.com/webinars/Pitching-Tips-from-the-P...

The other thing you could do is join the Writers' Room pitch sessions on a Thursday and practice in there. The feedback I've had from Brooklynn and John has been invaluable and you can learn a lot listening to others pitch. My pitch has improved with each practice session so I recommend it!

Perpetual Motion Part 2

Earlier this week, I posted about how I believe pitching scripts is a state of Perpetual Motion. Yesterday, while finishing a rewrite for a director for a film expected to begin shooting in September, I received a response to an inquiry I made earlier in May. This gig is for rewriting a draft script...

Worst than selling ureself short is selling ureself big and then making the job short...I say let the deeds speak for itself....better than any CV anyways...

That's a lovely sentiment, but you have to secure the job before you can demonstrate the deeds.

We just finished the fifth script draft for the Black Salt feature film and will storyboard the first two scenes to get a feel of how the feature film will look. https://drive.google.com/file/d/144g49F6IEHy2VLB67hRruZv9bsrpczJb/view?u......

@Eric Do you mean a polished Play or novel or film script?

Jack constantly talks about what he thinks, does and feels but a script can only be what’s seen on screen. First person singular is okay used often in novels but should be used for important beats, pl...

Just an idea

Has there ever been a movie theater like this? The chairs would swivel and the sound experience would be out of this world. I've had this idea in mind for at least a decade. I sketched this year's ago, I was going through my things and found it in my "ideas binders". Just thought it'd make interesting conversation? 

Matt Dugan

Talk about a fun cinema experience! Not seen something like this before, but love the idea!!!

Tommy Luca

Hey Thanks Matt! I'd like to think so too. It is different, and you haven't seen anything like this either? I was thinking something like this could very well ignite a resurgence to movie theaters?

Tommy Luca

Actually, the ancient Greek Amphitheatres were somewhat shaped similar to this. Standing on the shoulders of giants so to speak.

Shadow Dragu-Mihai, Esq

Tommy Luca Essentially looks to me like a variation on the planetarium experience, though those seats recline and don't pivot. Might be interesting, but it does require a ton of development on both pr...

6 Animated Shows That Changed the World of Comedy

I totally agree with this article. Animated shows have had a tremendous impact on the world of comedy. I think Beavis and Butt-Head could be added to this list. What other animated shows do you think would make the cut?

That's cool that you're going to try and network, Billy Kwack. More networking means more opportunities.
