Amazon Studios, Triggerstreet and Zeotrope - Transcript November 21, 2010

#Scriptchat Topic: The good the bad and the ugly of submitting scripts to Amazon Studios, Triggerstreet.com or Zeotrope

If this chat proves nothing else, it proves writers have strong opinions of their work and how the industry treats us.  As always, the global views are expressed, and there’s no chance we’ll be quiet about our opinions.  The USA chat was treated to a special appearance by Dana Brunetti, President of Trigger Street Productions – from 30,000 feet in the air!   He rocked it with generosity and honesty.  Plus, Amazon Studios even showed up… oh yeah, they heard us.  As usual, the EURO chat is first.  Scroll down for the USA chat.  Read on and enjoy! @jeannevb

8:03 pm             Jonathan_Peace:             As I'm at work my thoughts on Amazon deal is short: steer clear like the plague #scriptchat
8:03 pm             kanundra:             A friend sent me the link, I was thinking about it, till I read their small print. Then heard so much against it. #scriptchat
8:03 pm             DreamsGrafter:             I've looked into TriggerStreet but am not comfortable w/ such an open forum ... saying that ... #scriptchat
8:04 pm             gibbzer:             @filmutopia Haha. That's extreme but I can understand the sentiment. #scriptchat
8:04 pm             zacsanford:             Well one thing to make clear, all three sites offer different benefits to the writers. #scriptchat

8:05 pm             AnneMarieAngelo:             I'm wondering whom Amazon are trying to appeal to as the response seems so stacked against it. #scriptchat
8:05 pm             janetvaneeden:             RT @DreamsGrafter: I do like the fact that they've opened up to prose and plays too. #scriptchat #triggerstreet
8:05 pm             filmutopia:             @gibbzer I like to be clear about this subject. hahahahaha #scriptchat
8:05 pm             authorViviAnna:             2 big problems I have r the 18mth option and that anyone can rewrite ur script and upload it to the site for consideration #scriptchat
8:06 pm             zacsanford:             I agree 100% RT @filmutopia: Open peer reviews doesnt develop writers, it develops egotistical wankers #scriptchat
8:06 pm             MarissaFarrar:             I've got a screenplay I'm polishing up. Amazon may not be perfect, but a little of something is better than lots of nothing! #scriptchat
8:06 pm             DreamsGrafter:             Re Amazon Studios, it goes w/out saying free 18-month option plus anyone can rewrite. #scriptchat
8:06 pm             kingisafink:             RT @filmutopia: #scriptchat Open peer review of scripts = worse idea I can imagine. Doesn't develop writers, it develops egotistical wankers
8:06 pm             Jonathan_Peace:             I also used triggerstreet years ago and all I got was a stalker who kept trolling my blog. Use script readers & VPF #scriptchat
8:07 pm             kanundra:             Has Amazon even said anything in response to all the hype on them over the net? #scriptchat
8:07 pm             DreamsGrafter:             RT @Jonathan_Peace: I also used triggerstreet years ago and all I got was a stalker who kept trolling my blog. Use script readers & VPF #scriptchat
8:07 pm             indiancowboy:             I wouldn't mind being a "re-writer" on the amazon studios setup, but wouldn't submit my own work. Pitfalls to that? #scriptchat
8:07 pm             janetvaneeden:             @DreamsGrafter #scriptchat Listening and lurking tonight. Think maybe ok to submit a script which hasn't had much success But not BestScript
8:07 pm             robinkelly1:             @filmutopia But surely open peer review is better than nothing, which tends to be the alternative. Not everyone has networks #scriptchat
8:07 pm             authorViviAnna:             didn't Joseph Gordon-Levitt start a similiar project like Triggerstreet? #scriptchat
8:07 pm             zacsanford:             I really wish @danabrunetti wasn't traveling today so he could talk @triggerstreet, but if his plane has wifi he'll join @ 5 PST #scriptchat

8:08 pm             chained:             We need a list of #film studios to send scripts to based on how much money they could pay for scripts eg warnerbrothers up2 £2m #scriptchat
8:08 pm             GermaineJames:             @AnneMarieAngelo Maybe looking for something for nothing with appearance of crowd creation re: HITRecord but wrong model #scriptchat
8:08 pm             momentsoffilm:             My #scriptchat shall be very short tonight as I don't (& never will) use Amazon Studios, Trigger St or Zoetrope. :)
8:08 pm             zacsanford:             If writers have no other way to get feedback, Triggerstreet or Zoetrope could be the way to go, but beware of bitter writers. #scriptchat
8:08 pm             DreamsGrafter:             VPF = Virtual Pitchfest http://bit.ly/2t2ecs ... There are other ways to send yr scripts to Hollywood. #scriptchat
8:08 pm             Sofluid:             @DreamsGrafter #scriptchat ... But mostly it was a mix of know-it-all preachers or un-constructive comments.
8:08 pm             KarenSperling:             @DanaBrunetti #scriptchat is on, just click the hashtag to see
8:09 pm             GermaineJames:             @authorViviAnna HITRecord is a different model entirely. Crowd creation and he doesn't own ur work by option or otherwise. #scriptchat
8:09 pm             momentsoffilm:             Of course I don't care if other writers choose to use them. Just don't ask me to read and rate your screenplay, I won't. #scriptchat

8:09 pm             BlueCatPictures:             RT @GoIntoTheStory: Script readers are Hollywood's gatekeepers. You benefit from knowing how they think. Hence this 8-part series. #scriptchat
8:10 pm             chained:             No point sending scripts to small independent companys if they can't afford your selling price so can we all make a list ? #scriptchat
8:10 pm             zacsanford:             The fun thing with the Amazon deal could be to find awesome ideas executed horribly and rewrite them. #scriptchat
8:10 pm             Mentorless:             to quote @jeannevb, Amazon seems the best option for the lazies who just want their dreams given to them http://aol.it/cgqpsR #scriptchat
8:10 pm             Sofluid:             @DreamsGrafter #scriptchat I prefer more intimate critiquing in smaller groups, like the yahoo groups, as opposed to mass critiquing...

8:11 pm             GermaineJames:             @zacsanford And you can't copyright concepts. SW's veer one way or other-scared to sign standard release or give it away online. #scriptchat
8:11 pm             zacsanford:             @chained If you're unproduced you don't have a quote to go by, but should aim for WGA minimum unless it is a micro budget film. #scriptchat
8:11 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @Sofluid Where do you get feedback now? Wld you trust your script to another online community? #scriptchat
8:11 pm             Bang2write:             I love peer review as every1 knows, but I think for it to really work there has to be an element of trust, out of the spotlight #scriptchat
8:11 pm             Mentorless:             ...it's far easier to give notes and throw ideas on someone's work than to come up with the first spark #scriptchat
8:11 pm             authorViviAnna:             @GermaineJames thanks Germaine, I read somehting on it, but wasn't sure #scriptchat, so its all about collaboration
8:11 pm             nate_winslow:             RT @filmutopia: #scriptchat I would rather cut of my own cock, with a blunt hacksaw, than submit a script to Amazon, Trigger Street or Zoetrope
8:12 pm             janetvaneeden:             RT @zacsanford If writers have no other way to get feedback, Triggerstreet Zoetrope could be way to go bt beware bitter writers #scriptchat
8:12 pm             filmutopia:             #scriptchat Why are we talking about Hollywood? Isn't this Euro-scriptchat? We make movies here, in Europe. I've seen them. They're good.
8:12 pm             jeannevb:             @Mentorless not sure I actually said that, but sure, go with it haha #scriptchat
8:12 pm             janetvaneeden:             RT @Sofluid: @DreamsGrafter #scriptchat I prefer more intimate critiquing in smaller groups, like the yahoo groups, as opposed to mass critiquing...
8:12 pm             GermaineJames:             Review/critique is probably worth little if you don't know level/professionalism of reviewer and possibly blind spots/ quirks. #scriptchat
8:12 pm             chained:             Maybe we need a whole #scriptchat session for my idea to list current studios & genres they want & script budget please do this

8:12 pm             lizziside:             I think of cinema as a collective art in a Pirandellian way. However, there must be a common goal & a clear purpose. #scriptchat

8:13 pm             OnewordTF:             #scriptchat Can't get my head around Amazon Studios. Looks like they're treating writers as hobbiests rather than professionals.Confused.
8:13 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @filmutopia I can't think of anywhere but the BBC for the writer to submit their scripts. #scriptchat

8:18 pm             KarenSperling:             @DanaBrunetti and type #scriptchat whenever you tweet for others to see
8:18 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @Bang2write I can't think of an organisation in UK/Europe like @triggerstreet that's focused on developing writing talent. #scriptchat
8:18 pm             filmutopia:             @zacsanford I guess my point is that these sites distract people from the real process of talking to the UK/Euro industry #scriptchat
8:18 pm             zacsanford:             To show pros & cons. RT @indiancowboy: Why include Zoetrope? "All entrants retain complete and exclusive rights to their work." #scriptchat

8:19 pm             robinkelly1:             @filmutopia I'm thinking of writers just starting out - if OPR is properly moderated and egos kept in check #scriptchat
8:20 pm             carter_andrewj:             Hope everyone's enjoying #scriptchat. I can't commit the time this evening due to work :( - but I will say I think #AmazonStudios is a con.
8:20 pm             OnewordTF:             #scriptchat I agree with @momentsoffilm and @filmutopia. I can only imagine 10,000 vampire/zombie scripts on there by Christmas.
8:20 pm             zacsanford:             @filmutopia Problem is, everyone believes the US dominates the market, but we're only a fraction of the output. #scriptchat
8:20 pm             Bang2write:             @zacsanford there is @circalit over here, kind of like a UK InkTip. @filmutopia #scriptchat
8:20 pm             filmutopia:             @robinkelly1 But, as I said. You are in a peer group here. Why do you need a different one? #scriptchat

8:21 pm             Sofluid:             Agreed re: non-public reviews, they tend to become 2 egotistical RT @janetvaneeden #scriptchat prefer close network of critiquers <--ME 2.
8:21 pm             Mentorless:             @jeannevb Yes, thanks for that AND the @filmutopia article link # http://bit.ly/9FJHtQ #scriptchat
8:21 pm             filmutopia:             @zacsanford #scriptchat I agree. I guess people decide the kind of movies they want to make and pick their market.
8:22 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @filmutopia Methinks that the UK industry is so closed, it wld be great if there were more accessibility via online @zacsanford. #scriptchat

1:03 am             jeannevb:             So bring on the opinions. First off, let's talk Amazon Studios #scriptchat
1:03 am             booksbelow:             As a bookseller, I have had to wrestle with Amazon's arbitrary and bizarre rules for years, they live in an alternate reality. #scriptchat
1:03 am             jeannevb:             #1: READ THE FINE PRINT... w/ Amazon or ANY place you submit your script #scriptchat
1:04 am             karlabry:             Honestly, does anyone find themselves interested in amazon studio? What are the benefits for a serious writer? #scriptchat

1:04 am             bfogle75:             If you don't care about a script...put it on Amazon. If you do care...don't. #scriptchat

1:05 am             jeannevb:             the 18 months free option of your work is a huge red flag. Other ppl effing with it is a MAJOR strike #scriptchat

1:06 am             beingbrad:             The 18 month option was a bad decision on their part. Not sure how that came about or why. #scriptchat
1:06 am             karlabry:             Right. @bfogle75 I can't imagine anyone writing a script, then letting unknown strangers do rewrites on it without limit. #scriptchat

1:07 am             jbonnell:             18 month exclusive option and open rewrites are big issues. The payout terms, *IF* you get produced, are pretty nice though. #scriptchat

1:14 am             TravisLegge:             I see alot of negativity about the amazon thing. I need to do more research, but isn't the point to sell a script to them for $$ #scriptchat

1:15 am             WritersWithCats:             If they have a book deal going with WB, why can't we just submit straight to WB? Does this mean WB is crying for scripts? #scriptchat
1:15 am             TravisLegge:             @Todfilm I couldn't disagree more. Lots of 1st timers are good and LOST of veterans write crap & sell on name #scriptchat

1:18 am             TravisLegge:             @DanaBrunetti @jbonnell @tracinell @Todfilm I assume you can't. Isn't that the point of an "option" #scriptchat

1:20 am             sdarancette:             @Tommy3808 I'd bet right now most producers who say they are in the know, don't know about Amazon deal. #scriptchat. So no weight at all.
