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. ...
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.
Is there somewhere I can send a complaint to? These Oscar nominated scripts arenít formatted correctly.
Tollerís cell phone DINGS. He takes out his phone, checks the messages. There is a message from Michael: ďMeet me at the Westbrook Park Trail. East entrance. The red diamond trail. Come alone.Ē
Two orphans in a row!
MARY (she sits) Iím worried about him. (he waits) Heís involved with the Green planet movement. (Toller nods) He was in jail in Canada. He got out a couple of weeks ago. He just sits at home. He doesnít go out. I got him to fill out a temp form for Home Depot, so thatís good.

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.
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.
