I am a female comedian and have what I suppose is a "controversial Twitter" because I'm ironic all the time. I had 4 or 5 viral tweets this year and someone mentioned that is the kind of thing that puts you out of work. I am convinced wholeheartedly that I fucked this all up. I want to die. Irony being that's what the script was about. I don't have the energy anymore. I think I give up on writing as a career. But that is a nightmare so I am kind of convinced I should just drop dead. $400 in my bank account and this was my last chance.
Allow me to explain: I am currently in the middle of writing what will hopefully be my first feature length screenplay. Only problem is (which I've had no matter the length of the writing) once I get a few pages in I begin to doubt my script, thinking that its garbage or just plain old no good.
Does anyone have any suggestions for getting over this? Sorry in advance for the ridiculous question.
Here’s the first few pages of a script I’m working on. This would be my second full feature length screenplay, but I’m still interested to get some advice while it’s in the early stages.
[LOGLINE] Teenage serial killer Paul Powell has built up a reputation for himself under the alias “the Krawl Killer,” based on his calling card- the word ‘Krawl’ written in blood at the scene of the crime. While stalking a group of highschool friends, his biggest kill-job yet, his victim is intercepted by another killer. Feeling encroached upon because of this, Paul will go to great lengths to add the killer to his hit list, even if that requires finding out the true identity of the masked murderer.
So the Nickelodeon Writing Program submissions open January 2nd. We're halfway through December so figured we could use this thread to swap scripts and give feedback so we can polish it all up before submissions open.
from Zero Gravity Management. But I read that they request scripts from everyone who queries. Is this true? And just double checking to make sure they are legit. (I'm sure they are, but want to double check before I sign a release.)
