@teenierussell: @lukeryansays I apologise in advance for my 1st question: How does a writer get noticed in Hollywood? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:03 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @teenierussell Simple answer is by writing something great. There's nothing you can do without a great script. #scriptchat

@iantendo: Hi All #scriptchat

@SpockWriter: Hi everyone and hi @lukeryansays - and oh, @Screenwriter12 is here too!! How are we all doing? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:07 pm        



 
@ClaireYeowart: @lukeryansays can a new UK writer get noticed with a period UK set script or does that counter against? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:07 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @ClaireYeowart Hi Claire. You can certainly gain notice with it. . #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:08 pm        



 
@Screenwriter12: @teenierussell Heard something about Baileys, which I've added to my tea so had to join in. It's noon where I am in Canada. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:08 pm        



 
@teenierussell: @lukeryansays How does one meet those people though? Is it important to have an agent in Hollywood? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:08 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @ClaireYeowart Harder to make, so that can affect how quickly anyone looks at it, but if the writing's good -- absolutely. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:08 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @teenierussell It's important to have someone hustling for you. Agent, manager, producer, etc. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:09 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @teenierussell Early on, I think a manager is best. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:10 pm        



 
@kanundra: @lukeryansays thanks. You're more interesting though. And I've missed too many chats lately. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:10 pm        



 
@Screenwriter12: I'm really curious about new media. Do you think screenwriters need to be focusing more on becoming filmmakers, Luke? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:10 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @kanundra Oh, go on …! #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:10 pm        



 
@kanundra: @ClaireYeowart Good questions Claire :) #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:10 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Screenwriter12 I'm not sure "filmmaker" is the right word. For me it's "creator." #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:10 pm        



 
@teenierussell: @Screenwriter12 I've never heard of Baileys in tea, but it goes very well with coffee. hummmm #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:10 pm        



 
@ClaireYeowart: @lukeryansays thanks #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:11 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Screenwriter12 Realizing that screenwriting is just one tool as a writer to express your vision and get it to the world. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:11 pm        



 
@iantendo: @lukeryansays do you think that self producing something (like many musicians do) is a good 'calling card' to get noticed? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:11 pm        



 
@Bang2write: Hey @lukeryansays, welcome to #scriptchat :) What genre scripts do you see the most in Hollywood atm?
December 16, 2012, 8:11 pm        



 
@kanundra: @teenierussell I used to love Baileys..n #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:11 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @iantendo Absolutely. We're in a time where you can maker, market, distribute your own stuff. You have more power than ever. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:12 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Bang2write Hi Lucy! Hard to narrow down to a few. Everyone writes everything all the time. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:12 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Bang2write But I think we're about to see a trend of big/fun 80's style action. #scriptchat

@kanundra: @lukeryansays I also think making your own stuff is great for learning the whole creative process. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:13 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @kanundra Agree, Dawn. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:13 pm        



 
@TomFletcherPtk: #scriptchat anyone can write 'i hate you, i love you' structue a conversion about something else arround the real status shifts.
December 16, 2012, 8:14 pm        



 
@Bang2write: @lukeryansays yes funny you shld say that, been seeing more action this side of the pond too. Also more Horror again #scriptchat

December 16, 2012, 8:15 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @iantendo @Bang2write Ha -- you'd be surprised how many are already coming through. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:15 pm        



 
@Screenwriter12: Luke, my concern w new media is how to make a living writing/producing the stuff. Building audiences, sure. But bread & butter? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:15 pm        



 
@SiFoulaReel: @lukeryansays @bang2write If so, is it already too late to write a script for that trend, especially if you're just breaking in? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:15 pm        



 
@kanundra: @Bang2write Horrors I think will never lose. People love to be scared. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:15 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Bang2write I think both horror and faith-based stories are about to explode in the low-budget VOD space. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:16 pm        



 
@Bang2write: @lukeryansays what kind of concepts excite you? What bore you? For me: love female protags; bored of vampires + zombies #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:16 pm        



 
@TomFletcherPtk: #scriptchat let the actors play the actions, give them the words to embelish the moments of stronger subtext @Screenwriter12
December 16, 2012, 8:16 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @SiFoulaReel @bang2write Honestly, write what you're great it. But … if you're great at big/fun action -- now is a good time. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:16 pm        



 
@teenierussell: @lukeryansays at the moment, will a writer who pitches with Transmedia in mind have any advantage over other writers? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:16 pm        



 
@kanundra: @Screenwriter12 Blogging, networking and talking to just about everyone helps. You need to build a fan base. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:16 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @teenierussell With some companies/studios, yes. Others aren't there yet. But it's not just about film when you think that way. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:17 pm        



 
@Bang2write: @lukeryansays YES. Seems to me stories like STIGMATA about to make a comeback? Loved that one #scriptchat

@ClaireYeowart: @lukeryansays what's your view on free / $1 options? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:18 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Bang2write Re: Stigmata -- yes horror + faith, you can seldom go wrong. Brings you an add on to your standard genre aud. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:18 pm        



 
@Bang2write: @kanundra there was a short period the market was flooded, at least over here. 1 Room/ group Horrors have had their day IMHO #scriptchat

@teenierussell: MT @lukeryansays Honestly, write what youre great it. But … if youre great at big/fun action -- now is a good time. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:18 pm        



 
@SiFoulaReel: @lukeryansays Thanks, next ideas were already in that vein. Also, thank you for making my 1st ever pitch pleasant at #londonSWF #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:18 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @ClaireYeowart Then why even option it at all? Let them run around with it, but if you get a better offer, you get to pursue. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:18 pm        



 
@LewSwift: @lukeryansays With likes of Disney buying up established properties like #StarWars is there still room for the little guys/gals? #scriptchat

@Bang2write: @lukeryansays I would really like to see someone bring something new to the Possession Movie #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:19 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @LewSwift Yes -- if you look downstream those sorts of plays are going to be about generation massive amounts of content. #scriptchat

@lukeryansays: @TaroJ @Screenwriter12 It totally is. Big brands are getting it. They'll be their own studios/networks faster than you'd think. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:20 pm        



 
@Screenwriter12: @TaroJ Definitely - making $ off the advertising is more the new model. Not sure how to make bigger budget projects now though. #scriptchat

@kanundra: @ClaireYeowart I think too many of us are eager to get things made that we sell ourselves short. Its bad news... #scriptchat

@TaroJ: @Bang2write @lukeryansays ooh watch the new series of American horror story, you'll love that #Scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:21 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @LewSwift To follow up, Lew -- They're going to need lots of writers for that vast amount of work. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:21 pm        



 
@SpockWriter: @lukeryansays (for film) would you think if writers were to create universes/transmedia type of projects, that would force them #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:21 pm        



 
@TomFletcherPtk: @lukeryansays sumarise why you want to tell the story you chose in one sentence, never lose sight of the core story concept #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:21 pm        



 
@Bang2write: @lukeryansays the last that really impressed me was THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE. Had its cake + ate it too on faith vs. science #scriptchat

@TaroJ: @lukeryansays @screenwriter12 especially with connected TV's brands can have a channel very easily #Scriptchat

@kanundra: @SpockWriter I think there is so much potential with transmedia #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:23 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @SpockWriter It's just a matter of setting those projects up with buyers who see and get how to maximize their potential. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:23 pm        



 
@Bang2write: @TaroJ the possession movies I read frequently become soap operas round a bed with the occasional bout of screaming #scriptchat

@kanundra: @lukeryansays @ClaireYeowart It is tough holding out though. n #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:23 pm        



 
@iantendo: @lukeryansays do you get fed up of people pitching ideas as 'movie X meets movie Y' or is that a good way to summarise a script? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:24 pm        



 
@SpockWriter: @lukeryansays (cont) into planning for sequels/prequels and 'iron out' that clitche of awful third instalements? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:24 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Bang2write @TaroJ Interesting how genres just crumble for a bit until someone does something daring to breathe life back in. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:24 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @iantendo Not really. You have to do better than that, but it's not a bad place to start. #scriptchat

December 16, 2012, 8:25 pm        



 
@ClaireYeowart: @lukeryansays @kanundra I agree, I won't do it again even though I'm learning a lot on mine #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:25 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @SpockWriter I think the certainly can help -- and the more powerful the creator the more that can stick to that vision. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:25 pm        



 
@LewSwift: @lukeryansays I see. Emerging writers cut teeth on lower budget content (eg web series) then graduate to bigger scale stuff? #scriptchat

December 16, 2012, 8:26 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @LewSwift Yep -- you can make, market, distribute something good for way less than film school, and it will be worth more. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:26 pm

@lukeryansays: @LewSwift I think absolutely. Easier, more established roadmaps w/ Action/Fantasy/SciFi -- but Transmedia can work w/ anything. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:29 pm        



 
@Screenwriter12: @LewSwift Good question, Lew. Luke, are there genres that are more successful to pursue for TransMedia? #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:29 pm        



 
@iantendo: does transmedia get annoying though when watching the film is no longer enough? Is it lazy to stick the exposition on a website? #scriptchat

@lukeryansays: @iantendo To me, that's when you're doing it wrong. There are different schools. What you described is the uninspired way. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:31 pm        



 
@kanundra: @lukeryansays For me, sci fi all the way. I do believe 'games' are a great way also to break in alongside films. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:32 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @Screenwriter12 @LewSwift I think SciFi and Fantasy - anything where you inherently build a world are easier, but all can work. #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:32 pm        



 
@LewSwift: @kanundra Really? Any suggestions? I'm intrigued/sceptical about MockingbirdLane (the Munsters revamp). #scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:32 pm        



 
@Bang2write: @kanundra @ClaireYeowart personally I think sending to US contests can work out better than signing free options #scriptchat

@TaroJ: @lukeryansays @tomfletcherptk are ARG's still popular or is that essentially what has evolved into transmedia? #Scriptchat
December 16, 2012, 8:33 pm        



 
@lukeryansays: @TaroJ @tomfletcherptk It's one component of Tmedia. I think you'll see it expand a lot, especially evolved mobile devices. #scriptchat

December 16, 2012, 8:35 pm

@RiverCityOtter: RT @grking: doing that now #scriptchat "@wcmartell: Make a list of locations & props and cool things that you have access to - and write around those"
