How do script readers score your script? Posted by: MarkRenshaw
Date Posted: Today, 3:41am
You enter a competition, you send a script to a production company. In both situations, the script is read by someone whose job it is to score the script and mark it as either a pass, consider or recommend. The script readers - the first line of gatekeepers in the industry.

I was lucky enough to be in a session with Stephen Follows (https://stephenfollows.com/) a few days ago. He's a statto! You would think that's boring, but not only is he really funny but he knows his stuff and this data is very revealing.

He's been working for a while now on script scoring. He's analysed 12,000 scripts that were submitted to all the major film festivals and screenwriting competitions over the past year and the scores they received.

Top Ten Television Shows 2018   (reply) Posted by: LC
Date Posted: Yesterday, 11:33pm

Quoted from eldave1
Better Call Saul really fell off for me this season - seemed so slow paced.

I second that. Treading water all the way and verging on boring. The most exciting thing was when Kim had a car accident and her legal notes strewn everywhere. Kim (Rhea Seehorn) was way more interesting to watch than Jimmy. And what's with their relationship? The writing really wasn't great.

Mindhunter and Ozark and Bodyguard were more my speed.
Ozark's going to have to lift its game next season, though.

Hmm, I wonder...

Wasn't a huge fan of M.Mc, but this movie won me over. Love physical comedy and she does it so well.

Looking forward to the announcement, Pia. Very curious about this one especially on the back of a comment which was quickly withdrawn. Yes, I saw it...

No publicity is bad publicity, eh, Dave.

Is there somewhere I can send a complaint to? These Oscar nominated scripts arenít formatted correctly.

Rams!   (reply) Posted by: Dreamscale
Date Posted: Yesterday, 9:57am

Quoted from eldave1
Happy for the result. But officiating has been horrible all year long and the non-call at the end was atrocious.

Note: They missed plenty on the Rams side too - face mask on Goff, Stepping in Cooks head, allowing the Saints to run a play when the play clock clearly expired - ugh.

Then the phantom roughing the passer on Brady in the Pats/Chief fame was just as pathetic and also key to the outcome.


Yeah. agreed.  Many, many face mask penalties on Saints that didn't get called.

You know, if you really think about it, there could be holding called on just about every single play...both on the OL and the D, trying to cover guys.

I have lost track, but well over 100+ by now. I started out writing shorts and they are my favorites, but I wish I had started out with features instead since I still struggle to write those even though I've written many of those too.

How many shorts?   (reply) Posted by: henb
Date Posted: Yesterday, 5:47am
Back in film school in 2012-2013 I had written 2 shorts, one of which my writing partner and I added to last year to try and make it a feature-length, and we are very close to completing it. The other we have done only minor revisions on.

Then in 2016 I wrote 3 more shorts, two of which my writing partner and I recently added to and they now feature in our horror/sci-fi anthology feature along with 2 more newer shorts we wrote last year, and 2 we wrote this year.

Plus 3 micro shorts (a little over 1 page or less) written last year that are based on dreams I had, and also a scary story I told my one friend when we were children, that are also included in the anthology feature as interludes and an overlude.

11 altogether ...
