Quoted from stevie
How about anyone who has had coverage put it in their sig, along with the link to the script?


The problem with that is that directors and producers don't check the portal.  A lot don't even know and/or care that there's a discussion board to talk about the script.  They stay mainly on the Unproduced Scripts page.Out of all the directors I've worked with recently, not one has ever mentioned any of the comments about the script on the discussion board.

And there have been some higher caliber directors visiting the site recently.  It's not just student filmmakers anymore.

And I still think it's a great idea.  Again, back to the idea that I'd look at the coverage from a learning experience from other people's 'paid' feedback.

Just my two thoughts, because I don't have any cents to throw in.

Omega Entertainment found me here at SS, but like you said, it was from the Unproduced Scripts page, not the discussion boards.

There are definitely directors and producers lurking here. In my very limited experience dealing with them, I think they chose a genre and pick from there. Usually, they are attracted to the scripts with lots of comments (i.e. 9WCs, OWCs).

With that said, I think this section would be good. The peer review won't go away; there will still be directors who search the site with a genre in mind. But having this section, offers another way for other scripts to get noticed.

Good point, Pia.  So - IMHO - the recommended changes (whatever Don decides to go with) should be visible from the Unproduced Scripts page, not the discussion forum.  (I still think it should be for all scripts, though.  Not just those that purchase coverage.)

Agree!

I do not however like rating by readers. We've seen numerous problems with this when voting has been allowed in the OWCs. Although most people are honest, there are always people that will give a script the lowest grade possible just because they either don't like the writer or want their own script to score higher. Sad, but true.

I know.  I agree that'd be a problem. There's bound to be personality conflicts that cause issues.  And I think that would be unfair and stink (but it's inevitable, given human nature.)

Here's an argument for Devil's Advocate purposes, though: say a script's good.  If there's one nasty review, and 10 good ones...  Won't the 10 cancel out the others, in most producer's eyes?

Also an idea - the Blacklist allows writers to make a review unreadable, at the writer's discretion.  (Not the rating, but the review itself.) Maybe we should do that, too?

I used to get a lot of e-mails about my script on the Unproduced section (its now deleted).

Unfortunately, they were all from crazy people or crack-pot "film makers" who I wouldn't even let make me a cup of coffee let alone butcher my screenplay.
