Now granted, this is on a larger scale, but for all those ADs and Producers out there, I’m curious. What do you do when a fully funded project starts up, brings you aboard, and gives you the script, only to read it and realize its complete trash? Its has money. Its feasible under the budget. And they’re hiring you to pull it off. But its not like, boring, and you can make some...
lifeandtimesofafilmmaker replied to your post: Script Complaints Part… 3? Griffin. I know you’re pissed Val is having a great time in NY… But c’mon now.

Script Complaints Part... 3?
Okay so I’m not going to knock you because you wrote a script. Writing something from start to end is extremely hard, and no matter the quality, the fact that you got it done is something. That being said, and with the onslaught of scripts I’m going through, some other bits of advice I can give you. - Stick to the same tense. Careful of your was and is, and is going to. - There,...
Val’s partying it up in NY. S’okay, I can party too. Ravioli and Sherlock! Its gonna get wild in here! Whoo.
Val is out bouncing around Brooklyn and meeting with important peoples. I’m currently typing with tea and toast with a little butt smooshed up against me. Turns out nightmares are scary and we’re safer in dads bed. Which is alright. It may have not helped my sleep, but it certainly helped my mood. And I currently have… 5 scripts to go through, 3 breakdowns and only one of them...
Sorry, I know its been quiet here.
We’re in a whole lot of pre production over a few things. And Val is over in NY right now kicking ass. So I’ll try to post something interesting soon and… then hopefully have some fun behind the scenes on whatever job hires us first!

A few notes on the importance of PAs
I’m on a shoot that wants to use all unpaid PAs. No. Unpaid directors? Sure. I’m all about that. Don’t pay the director. Ever. That’s fine with me. Unpaid PAs? No. As in “never.” The karma you built up from paying everyone on set including the directors but not the PAs is so epically bad that you shouldn’t even risk it. And using using...
