Welcome back! This week, Cheryl and I chat about everything we’re finding out about landing an agent and a manager in hopes that you guys get a little more info to make better decisions yourself.
We also dive into the events of last week’s pitchfest which, of course, was a giant pain in the ass. Good stories of what you SHOULDN’T do when talking to executives.
Lastly, we dive into nerdom by chatting about Argo (finally) and Paranormal Activity 4.
Okay, I know…you’re going to kill me for getting repetitive, but I’m really trying to promote the show. That being said…

One thought on “Episode 13: “Agents, Managers and Pitchers…Oh My!””
Seriously, another great episode! And it was “great great” to not have to wait until Friday for it!
(Yes, I’ve been watching my old “Moonlighting” VHS tapes again… complete with those great vintage Willis wine-cooler ads!)
I of course especially liked all of the “Don’t Do What Donny Don’t Does” stories from the pitch fest! Lots of pearls of wisdom to live (and write) by, including the crucial difference between a screenplay “inspired by” a true story and one “based on” it.
(And I’m sure glad to hear that Hollywood isn’t interested in “snipping van” stories!)
And the first part of the podcast, regarding the latest screenplay notes and developments, and everything about your ongoing quest to find an agent and/or manager you really feel connected with, was also very interesting and helpful.
Finally, I’m glad to hear confirmation that Argo is very good — it’s #1 on my “to see” list.
As the folks at moveon say, “thanks for all you do!”
(P.S. By the way, my brain is telling me that the b.c. device was norplant, but I haven’t looked it up yet to be sure.)
