Script Links 8-20-12


Hi all.

As you’ll notice below, Roy and I have made a slight change to our weekly schedule.

We’re switching to two reviews a week and one article.

Two reasons for this.

First, the return on doing four returns a week isn’t proportionate to the work we’re doing, plus articles are more beneficial but unfortunately getting left out.

And second, keeping that schedule is very time consuming, considering our real life schedules, especialy family. (Since Roy and I both have real jobs in addition to this site.) There’s been a few times where our kids have come to us and asked why we’re on the computers all the time.

We both feel we’ve put in a decent amount of work though, that hopefully we’ve all learned from.

Not sure about the big guy, but I haven’t touched my writing in quite a long time, since there’s been script after script to be read. I’m not complaining, as I’ve learned quite a bit myself, but now I’d like to get back to it at least once a week.

So starting next week we’ll be on the new schedule.

We’ll also be going to pro scripts the week after that, since honestly, more people read them. We have no problem doing reviews for folks, but that’s a lot of time to put in to only have the author and maybe three or four of you read what we wrote.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments, as you notice Tuesday’s open, and we’d like to get some sort of reader participation for that day. (Feel free to throw out ideas for there too, BUT only if you’re willing to participate too. Don’t say, “HEY, it’d be great to have corn muffins!” Then Little Red Hen us, and not want to put the work in to make them.)

Black Swan by Mark Heyman and Andres Heinz

Logline: A ballet dancer wins the lead in “Swan Lake” and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan – Princess Odette – but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile, the Black Swan.

Don’t forget if you’d like us to take a look at your project please follow the directions at the Contact Us page.

Also look for new announcement or discussions over at our screenwriting forum.


    • Elliot,

      Great question, and no. Feel free to continue to submit your scripts, as we both want to come back to them every once in a while. Not to mention you’re doing a great job swapping reviews with other readers, which is an alternate goal of our site.
