The Bitter Script Reader The advice and rantings of a Hollywood script reader tired of seeing screenwriters make the same mistakes, saving the world from bad writing one screenplay at a time. Learn what it takes to get your script past one of these mythical Gatekeepers.
Go here for Part I. Looking back over these five years, can you think of any instances where the site's achievements exceeded your expectations?
There are so, so many: Minhal Baig and Tom Dean participating in the labs and then ending up on the annual list. Seriously there are way too many to mention with too many remarkable things and people associated with them.
I have to admit, I've lost count at this point of how many scripts discovered on the list have become released feature films. Five years ago, did you think you'd see a substantial number of scripts from the service produced, or did you expect the site would have more success in launching the careers of writers who would see their first produced works on subsequent scripts?
There have been seven movies produced in the last three years though, and all of those have premiered at film festivals like Toronto, SXSW, and the Los Angeles Film Festival.
I want to ask a little bit about your brief, aborted partnership with Scriptbook. In April, you announced a new service the Black List would provide is a report generated by an algorithm that would "indicates the commercial and critical success of a project, along with insights on the storyline, character analysis, target demographics, market positioning, distribution parameters [and more] prior to any made costs.
Criticism of the Black List is nothing new. From the very beginning, I've seen writers accuse the site of taking advantage of aspiring writers.
You've always met those criticisms head on and also reached out to people who've complained about their experience with the site. What was it about this particular criticism that struck a chord to motivate not only a complete reversal, but one that happened in a matter of days?
You could have easily said, "If you don't see value in Scriptbook, you're under no obligation to purchase it. I really do view a significant part of the mission of the Black List as service to the community of writers. We partnered with Scriptbook because I know that many studios, financiers, and producers are increasingly deploying this sort of analysis in their own work, and I wanted to provide a best in class version of that sort of analysis to writers at a severe discount to what other parts of the industry were paying for it.
I also believe that more information, rightly used, is always valuable. I think it was the right decision. I saw a lot of conversation - both on social media and in groups that I frequent - from people who felt the script should have been disqualified.
I know you've said in the past that you don't think it's all that common that a script will end up on the list as a result of collusion.
Has last year changed your approach at all to the annual list? What's your thought process for addressing a situation like that? I generally prefer to address specific criticisms of the process rather than generalized critics of it. I think the important question is, why should it have been disqualified?
Is it the subject matter? In the best case scenario, you attract attention to a terrible bit of work, and people stay away from the author in the future.
Finally, the last Black List Live reading of is upon us on November 18th. Originally these performances seemed to be aimed at reigniting interest in scripts from the annual list that maybe had grown cold.
As we head intowhat is the objective of the Live Reads in the Black List's overall mission? None of it would happen without them. And the work that Megan and Lisa put in is truly extraordinary. The shortest answer to this question is that we want to put on great night of entertainment wherein the screenwriting and the screenwriter is the star.
One of the many things that I never could have anticipated is the extent to which absolutely incredible actors have participated and absolutely murdered their performances.
