Babz Wants...
« on: May 03, 2013, 10:12:22 AM »
Though Babz is always in the market for Faith-Based scripts, she occasionally calls out for other scripts.   Those requests will wind up on this thread.  To pitch Babz a script she's requested...

1. The script should be complete and table read.
2. Unless otherwise noted a beat sheet should be included.
3. Unless otherwise noted coverage should be included.

Do not PM Babz with your pitch.  Put your pitch in an email, attach the beat sheet and coverage and send it to Babz.   If you like you can also attach the first ten pages of the script.   If you don't have an email address use babzbuzz@gmail.com.

FROM ANNA

http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/lessonsfromscarymovies-learning-not-horror-movie-twitter-193117810.html

Thanks Babz,

Some good advice though most of it is common sense and really should be based on the feel and the flow of the Horror film to determine what happens next.

People always try to set rules or recommendations that writers should follow, though there are many amazing films made that do go against the  "What not to do" scenarios.

I also do a read and if I feel it works, then I run with it.

Regards Alex

The big question is, though, if you remove all that conventional wisdom that is responsible for so many horror movie deaths, how are you supposed to have your characters killed? Have them actually be smart? Lol. Don't make me laugh.

Hey Sean,

Have to agree with this !!! Also it would make the story too predictable.

Have to write "Out of the Box" !!! Why be like everyone else !!! Hee Hee

Well, killing off more clever characters is more interesting and fun, but you have to remember, we're trying to make a movie here, not a film. These are supposed to be stupid archetypes in cliched situations... =)

Have to say the critical part is more the method you use to kill them rather that the personality of the characters.

Spoken like a true producer. Who cares about things like... I don't know, plot and characters? It's all about the kills. After all, who the hell can name the main characters from Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street anyway? Lol. I kid, I kid. Truth is, you can tell the pure slashers from the real horror movies. Between Halloween, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, which one felt less like an actual horror movie than just a slasher? Think about it. =)

Some kill out of need, and some do it for the enjoyment. You can tell the difference in a movie as to their reasons. That what makes all the difference in a good HORROR.

it's funny but for me it's more about the unexpected. The subtle. Now, grant it Exorcist was all of that and IN YOUR FACE, too. But when I read Insidious for example; GRIPPING and oft times (can't even believe I can use oft in a sentence lol), subtle.

Babz,

Excuse me for asking, when so many have asked before,  but I just wanted to check out how we get a script to you for consideration.

I have just completed the first draft of my latest feature ;D, not remotely for consideration yet >:(, but would like to put this to you in due course, if it makes the grade. 8)

What I understand we need to do is have;

1) a completed script - a final draft and as fault free as possible
2) coverage of consider or better - does it matter where this comes from?
3) a beat sheet - I'll need to work on this
4) logline and title - of course

Anything else I should know?

All the best

Bill

Horror can be so many things. Different things scare different people. Some people just like a gore fest. Others like their horror to be funny. Others more of a mystery. It doesn't matter, as long as you feel a little something it's all good. The horror films that do well with a broader audience tend to have a better story behind it, but that does not by any means, it will be loved by all horror fans. There's a niche audience for everything. My personal favorite is psychological horror. I wish I could write it, but I just don't have enough knowledge about the human psyche to be able to pull that off. I'm fascinated by the dark side of humans. To me, the only monsters out there are people. Vampires, werewolves, aliens, they don't scare me. Only a crazy human do.

Seeking Portuguese Writers
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are looking for completed, feature-length scripts from writers who are fluent in Brazilian Portuguese. Submissions can be in any genre, and don’t necessarily have to be in Portuguese, we are just looking for writing samples from writers who are also fluent in the language. Please note we are not looking for scripts to option, just a writer to bring on board an existing project.

Budget has yet to be determined. WGA and non-WGA writers may submit.

Ok so I reread Dark Spaces by Jason Bortz. This is a sort of low budget 'Shining' but it's frankly more in that the right director could MAKE HISTORY with this. It's about the absence of light; all of the dark spaces rivet you as you read, because, well, we don't know what's IN the folds of darkness. Between that, and the creepiness of the 'appearance' of the Nanny and Warren the script is a solid story, very well told but in truth; IT'S A TALENTED DIRECTOR'S DREAM. Because if done right, IT WILL SCARE the pants off you! Next show, I talk about what writer Jason Bortz did correctly, and well here. MEANWHILE MY FORUM FRIENDS: yes, pitch me. Make it great. Enjoy YOUR process.
AS REEF SAYS:

1) a completed script - a final draft and as fault free as possible
2) coverage of consider or better - does it matter where this comes from? NO AS LONG AS THEY 'DO' THIS FOR THEIR FOOD NOT FLY BY NIGHTS.
3) a beat sheet - I'll need to work on this YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID, NAIL THEME, AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT YOU NAIL DIALOG.
4) logline and title - of course

This is an honest question. I'm just wondering if it also has to be cheesy in the same way as this or whether it's more the idea? I think you mean the tone, more light-hearted but also kind of family drama.

A question on the TV Pilots:  Do you want something like The Writers Store's TV Pilot Kit attached? 

My pilot was a finalist in the Creative World Awards for Orignial TV Pilot and Ed Beach has a 3rd place winner for his pilot in another.

Wondering if you're still looking for High Concept Action scripts.

It's a non-stop, thrill ride style Action/Thriller with a Sci-Fi element (think Minority Report, Looper).

LOGLINE:
In a future where cybernetic implants have replaced computers, an emotionally and technologically detached detective is framed for murder after uncovering a conspiracy to infect mankind with a lethal computer virus.

Thanks! :)

I'm having trouble with a comedy I wrote. I think it has too do with the contradicting tones of horror, comedy in it. The horror is "very" brutal and the comedy is offensive. I fear this one may sit on the shelf until the right people see it.  It's basically and homage to eighties horror, b-movies and drive-in flicks. It's everything I love about Tarantino and Cheesy Horror rolled into a cheap thrill. Besides contest, what can I do with this thing?

I have a question for you Babz.

I wrote a comedy/horror script a few years ago and actually had interest in it but since then nothing.  I was thinking of enter it into a few contests / competitions but I'm wondering if it might be a waste of time and money as it's set in rural England and is a very British concept.  What do think?  I'm curious as most of the known contests are American.

I think you should read it, make sure it's SOLID and put it on Inktip. NOT the script. Just the log line and synop. I like contests but they do not create the kind of buzz i think writers need to get credits. Of course many of them can and do, but for my money; it's about time. And for time, and the saving of same, I say Inktip. DON'T SIGN anything whatever you do. bb

Thanks Babz.  Does it cost to put log line and synop on Inktip?

I actually looked today.  I think the log line alone is $40 and the full script is $70 (or $65 with auto renew).  I copied the info below from their site:

InkTip.com Script Listing

This includes the pitch (logline), resume, synopsis, treatment and full script for each work placed on our website.

$70 for 6 months ($65 with auto-renewal)

   
InkTip Magazine Listing

This includes one logline in one issue of the magazine. New issues are mailed out to entertainment pros every two months.

$40 per logline


So if you're just doing the log line, it's $120 for six months (3 issues at $40 per issue), whereas it's $70 for putting the entire script out there.  Besides the cost factor (which is meaningless to me, but it might be for others), is there a benefit to doing one over the other?

I sometimes straddle the fence; on the one hand I don't like PUTTING SCRIPTS up there, just the log line AND the synop and your resume. Reason; I want to VET, as an agent, whomever is looking at my client's work. As a writer, YOU TOO SHOULD VET. Will cover that on the next show. Inktip is a GREAT PR MACHINE for the writer. so loglines for sure! BB

This is a rush lead from Babz. It needs to be filled quickly...

1. A mid-to-late 30's female lead.
2. A contained space or location. So we can favour quality over quantity. The 'arena' should be interesting to allow for some good (though contained) design work. Examples: Saw, Cube, A Perfect Getaway, Dark Star, Assault On Precinct 13, Sleuth.
3. A great story with great characters and dialogue. And not lots of extras.
4. Solid marketability. This could mean a killer scene that would sell the trailer, or a great tagline, intriguing concept, etc. Basically something that feels unique, fresh, but not dumbed-down.
5. Horror, thriller, sci-fi or suspense. Or a combination.

From Babz (bbmovieagent@gmail.com)

- Seeking scripts with 1-2 locations that can be shot in Australia with a cast of Australians. Australian writers are preferred. Please be sure to send 1-2 sentence loglines.

- Any genre except Horror. Film needs to be under 5K, and under 20 pages. General objective: I'm looking to direct a piece that evokes emotion, a big decision in someones life and the script must have a pay off at the end. Cast size 2-10.

Looking for a new pilot to shoot. I just finished producing/directing a full season of a one hour Western Series on location in Arizona. We have the connections, talent, and team -- just need a pilot.

Sitting down?

A Christian agent needs a gay comedy.
NOTHING gross
Probably good if it's faith-based.

How much time is left on the Witch script? I tried getting rights to a Terry Pratchett novel after the first request for scripts, but they were having none of it, (though they said it nicely), so that means I have to write the story from scratch, and that will take a while longer than an adaptation.

Also, is this for release in the US, or another country? I would want to know who my audience is in order to tailor the story. It sounds up my alley, as I have another family-oriented movie I'm writing as well.

I'll think up a storyboard, meanwhile. Cheers!
