Talent tv

Jul 17th, 2011

Still waiting for the ‘heads up’ from Talent tv and in the meantime I decided to have a look at their website and was facinated too see their first feature film to be out this Autumn (2011) . It is called “Outside Bet” and stars Bob Hoskins. The Pitch tells us that some guys in the Pub get togehther and sink their redunancy money in a Racehorse. Sounds like a Full Monty or Brassed Off  and hopefully another good British Low Budget Film. I’ll be looking out for it. See for yourself. Talent tv.

I am having problems uploading stuff. Maybe my URL’s are wrong or my HTML code is faulty. I need a child of the digital age to help me. Do you know any?

The Kings Speech

Jul 15th, 2011

Here’s one for all you haveagoscreenwriters. The Kings Speech. What a film. Watch the film and then watch it again with the Script on your knee. It has been around for years – first as a play at the Edinburgh Festival – on the fringe- and was spotted by the directoes Mum. Correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks to simply scripts for the script available on the screenplay page.

Pitch 4

Jul 9th, 2011

Like those bubbles children blow, it floats around for a while looking beautiful and then suddenly bursts.

Never mind we still have Talent TV who gave us a ‘heads up’. Not being sure what that was I looked it up on line and it seems to be a promise to do something in the future – American style. A bit like a ‘rain check’ but I’m not really sure what that is either!

Keep you posted – whatever that means.

Pitch 3

Jul 9th, 2011

Two weeks later we had this message from Feelgood Films.

Thank you for sending your comedy idea ‘Dead People’s Things’ in to us. Unfortunately, we will not be able to pursue your project at this time.

We wish you success in your future scriptwriting and are sorry again.

A Pitch 2

Jul 8th, 2011

It was raining, so it must have been a Bank Holiday. Stephen gets out his copy of The Artists and Writers Year Book, goes through all the likely contact emails, and finds about 30. We decide not to address it to Ms. Big but use Sir/Madam instead (sensible for once) and fire them off . Amazement  when two reply with an interest. One guy tells us he is busy with reading other stuff but gives “a heads up” -not sure what that is  -but not heard from him again.  Ju from Feelgood Films wants to read it but says the attachment will not open – can we send it again. Great excitement. She emails back –  still can’t open it – says she is using an old computer . Desperate now (we don’t want to lose her) we  convert the file to pdf.  and send that. She emails back. She’s got the screenplay! Wow! Feelgood Films. – here we come. More later.
