Looking for screen writer to help me write a script for an idea I have.
Copy the link below to share this page:
I'm finishing a script now, and don't have any ideas for what to do next. Is this the thriller idea?
Yes its the thriller idea. well its more of a psychological thriller
what do you need help with? the story or how to write it?
i hear ya, everyone needs a partner in crime so to speak.
Yea but unfortunetly I haven't found one that thinks like me
I got lucky, me and my co-writer can be working taking turns writing and when we trade off he writes it just as I would have and vice-versa.
Lucky you that's exactly what I'm trying to find .
sometimes you just gotta start writing and they'll find you. Thats what happened to me. I had no clue what I was doing, then a friend of a friend asked me what I was doing and he said he could show me the ropes. We've been writing together ever since.
Ive tried and got screwed over. I know that ill find someone one day .
until you do keep on writing.
I will otherwise I wont get anywhere. I hate waiting on people
I don't trust craigslist .... Ive known alot of people who've had bad experiences with that
yeah I wouldn't trust Craigslist.
Exactly but ill deal with it . I know what I what at the momment.
Wish they had a writing program that would let people link up together and write. I know FinalDraft8 has collabowrite feature but it's a huge pain in the ass. I used to use GoogleWave but that is gone now...
there is a website called script buddy that will let multiple people work on one script.
Yea it would make life a little easier. There probably is one somewhere
Oh ill check it out thanks
How we use it to collaborate on a script is to create an account and just share the login and password with everyone that is working on the script. Another way to collaborate on a script would be if you had final draft or some other software would be to save the work in progress on Google Docs so that everyone has access to it. Both work out well if you are working on a project over distance.
Thanks sounds interesting
That does sound interesting gotta give it a try. thanks
Well I'm not about to post my idea on the internet where everybody can read it . It makes it way too easy for people to take your idea . Last thing I need is to see someone gain success from my story without me. Ive seen it happen to many people . People arent as honest as they use to be
People can be very shady. When I was working on my Playboy comedy, Playboy gave us House Bunny scripts to go over and get general ideas, before they had even started filming. Turns out they gave our script to the guys writing Play Boy's to get ideas and they down right stole our whole format and concept and turned it into Miss March. It's one of those things all three scripts were different, Someone liked ours better then theirs so they stole our idea. And as long as it's 60% different they can legally get away with it. Trust me my Lawyers looked into it and found that My Script plus Miss March had been sent to a company to be compared to make sure they couldn't be sued, all funded by Playboy.
Yea that really sucks. That's why Im not into giving people a look at my work. It's a shame tho
I learned that even the people you trust the most can screw you over for money. It happens a lot.
That's also very true . There's not win/win situation here .. to many possibilities
That's why I live by the rule always protect yourself first. Trust people second and third always plan for the worst.
Great words to live by .Ill keep that in mind
