If a writer is interested in feedback, the posting will have: Writer interested in feedback on this work

If a writer is not interested in feedback how do you want it put?

"Available for production with permission"
or
"This is an awesome script, please contact me about producing it"
or
"Writer not interested in feedback"

So far, this is how a "not interested in feedback" script is presented.



Title by Name - Genre, Other Genre - Logline. X pages - pdf format

Writer not looking for feedback

Production Information (locations, characters, etc)

Contests, Coverage, Reviews information

How about "Writer not interested in feedback on this board"? Just in case some producer misconstrues the meaning.

I'm concerned that someone would then email feedback.  I am assuming, for those of you who have a final draft script, you are looking to have your work optioned or sold or even produced free for credit.

For me, when I'm not looking for feedback, I usually consider the script good enough to go to a producer or I have no interest in rewriting it and don't want to waste anyone's time reading and providing feedback. Thing is though, sometimes people write stuff just to write and post "pissers" and never have the intention to rewrite, but know it's not good for production either.

Sometimes reviewers offer suggestions, and although the intent is helpful and kind, some writers might not want to be influenced in that way. You can't ask for help 24/7 so sometimes it's cool just to see how things float. It's not saying "I'm too good for you lot, I don't care what you think", it's probably about becoming comfortable with your own style and saying " I've tried my best, no need for comments and to waste anyone's time, I'm only interested in seeing if anything happens."

Don has made some awesome changes and it will be interesting to see how it pans out, hopefully it will work out well.

I really like the changes too. It happened way too often - a writer posts a script just for producers' eyes. The comments in this case annoy, especially if the critique does not favor the script. (not talking about myself, just an observation)

I think the only drawback will be that Don might get flooded with scripts from writers who just don't give a damn, sending in scripts that they otherwise might have double-checked if they knew someone might read and write about it.

However, I think it's an awesome step forward and hopefully everything will work out OK.

It's a double-edged sword scenario, but one I'm really pleased that Don has introduced.

SteveD,

I worry about that, too.  I'm not sure how CJ handles that on Script Revolution. If I get a script "For production consideration - No comments required" I'm going to take a long look at the first few pages and if flags go up from a technical standpoint - typos, grammar, bad formatting, then I may come up with a fleshed out version of my, "Looks like you got a great start, but before I can post this, you need to address one of a number of issues... "

Don

See, I like that.  We all believe our scripts are "ready" when some/most of the time they're not.  Good call on that.


My Scripts:
SHORTS
Bed Bugs
I Got The Shaft
No Clowning Around
Fool's Gold
Five Days for Redemption

TELEVISION
Father, Forgive Me

You need to pitch that sci-fi epic to Warner Brothers immediately. I see Mila Kunis as Sophie and Channing Tatum in a career defining role as the horse.


That rug really tied the room together.
