    Film script! Need help! DESPERATELY! Calling all film writers!

    Hi, I'm Mr. Ben Derrick, a young director of a small amateur production group. I am currently shooting a feature love movie and I have written most of the script, sort of layed the story out...however I am very stuck on where to take the story from where I have it currently to finish it off. I need a younge enthusiastic writer who can help me finish this story off. If you are interested in helping me with this please e-mail me or leave a post on here (e-mail: [email protected]) Thank you.

    Also if you are interested in that I have a theme an idea for a film I'd love to shoot next year. I also need a writer to write that, so if you're interested again just e-mail me or post on here.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mr. Ben Derrick

    be sure to have a contract in place, before doing any work, folks!

    the uk must have some equivalent of the wga... if so, you can find info there, on what to expect for work of this kind... and sample collaboration or work-for-hire contracts...

    love and hugs, maia

    i mean, that is such a lame thing to say.
    unbelievable.
    if i manage to help this guy, i won't be expecting any kind of payment at all, that's just not cool
    If I make it as a writer, I'll write for the hobo, not the professor.

    and you're either very young, or just plain disgustingly and obscenely rude!... what the bleep did i say that you consider is 'lame'?... no one should ever go into a co-writing situation without a contract in place... and this guy seems to be asking for a co-writer, not just 'help'...

    I think cellar was merely trying to point out that there are some writers who collaborate and write for the creative experience rather than the monetary gain. Although you imparted some good advice Maia (if he is indeed looking for a co-writer) I can also understand collaborating for collaborates sake. Anyways, just my two cents.

    i've nothing against collaborating just for the experience, but this guy is actually producing films, which puts it into the professional category, and credits are both key and vital in any writer's career... to write something for/with someone else, without a contract and under those circumstances, is just plain foolish...

    what i do have something against, is any person who will use bad language and slam someone who's merely being helpful, offering good basic advice to those who don't know the business end of the film industry and thus can easily be taken advantage of...

    good manners seem to be in short supply here... sad!

    Hey!

    Appologies for not checking back here recently but I've been very busy. I hope the arguing has cooled down, it's fine trust me, I will put the writer's name in the credit etc. But as I said the job is none paying which was right cellardoor. I have sent you a message cellardoor, I hope I get to work with you.
    Thank you.

    You don't have to be mean about it. She was only trying to help, things don't always work out for people y'know. Be prepared for the worst I always say.

    Anyway as I was saying. Send me the script and I can help with whatever you need. Where I am from I am highly acclaimed for my imagination. If that is what you need you can E-mail me (if I know how to work it)
