A meticulous maven of facts and cheap wine.

Hello everyone! I'm an actor, writer, and producer (and a few other hats) and I'm re-acquainting myself with this platform. I'd love to connect with and learn from like-minded creatives all over the world.
Feel free to add me!

Nice to meet you

Are you a rule breaker, risk taker or formula driven?

You're working on your next script. Let's say its a zombie story. Are you going for a good solid formula, hitting all the beats in the right places. Or are you breaking rules and taking risks? And this applies to every genre. Though I like to think of myself as very creative, I tend to stick to line...

I'm a fan of outlines, wasn't at first when I started. I pretty much have it mapped out in my head. I write more in my head than anything. I think it about every scene in my head before I put it on pa...

What's your Pet peeve when reading scripts? (mostly amateur)

So my pet peeve when reading scripts is swearing. I know it sounds silly and I swear myself. Mostly when I'm mad (or playing video games). I'm sure there are many people who normally speak with swear words as part of their vocabulary. I'm always taken back when I hear a young person swearing none sto ...

Spelling mistakes are the hallmark of a poorly written script. I was working on a production with lots of typos and wouldn't ya know- it was missing scenes/ scenes not properly numbered. If a writer c...

So, as I’m Reading, a good read consists of flawless formatting, creative prose to express better what swearing would, terse, profound dialogue that doesn’t offer useless exposition, and perfectly pac...

My pet peeve? Almost copy cat premises. I mean in the vein of "I've written this script about an assassin/hitman who is double crossed" or a "I've written this script where these people are trapped in a room and they have to figure out these riddles in order to escape and survive."

Doug Nelson

Rick - I continually strive to enhance my writing. You stated it precisely; "Every word pushes the story forward."

Rick Hernandez

Indeed, Doug. Refinement never ends. Creation and destruction are equally important.

The Asian Connection

Hello, I am looking to connect with screenplay writers and any other movie makers in South East Asia. I am a newbe with fresh ideas in most genres and currently working on my first screenplay. I am living in Jakarta but open to anyone (around the world) who is ready to share experiences in the movie world. Looking forward to catch up!

La????

Hi folks,question how important you think it is to move to LA??? To break in the industry??

Doug Nelson

The filmmaking industry spreading all over the nation. Production costs in Southern California is in the process driving the industry to other locations/states - so I don't think you need to be in LA...

You can do things via computer now (even take meetings) so create where you are & move to LA when you have a deal.

Doug Nelson

Face to face is the only way to go - even in these computer driven times. My advice is to prowl locally; although if you're in a dinky little market such as I, you may have to widen your search. I've been in LA - no one could ever pay me enough to actually live there.

James T. Sale

Industry Professionals who live in LA work much more than people that live outside of LA. AND the most important thing about living here is making contacts which means that this is the best place for that. Good luck!

Produced?

Hi everyone, I have been writing a lot of shorts lately. About to finish my 6th and started a 7th. One is optioned and two are entered into film festivals and I plan to produce some myself. I would also like for more to be optioned/produced. How do you go about advertising your shorts and looking for people to option them?

Steven Harris Anzelowitz

They say one good turn deserves another. ":Script Revolution" has a "Shooting Shorts" section where you can list your short scripts for FREE. I have one of mine listed there. It could give you another resource.

CJ Walley

Here on Stage 32 is a good start. Check the jobs section regularly for those who are looking for shorts. I've optioned a few shorts through Stage 32. I see you have some loglines uploaded. Simply scrip...
