Clauses to Watch Out For in a Screenplay Release Form

BRIEF NEWS FROM JORDAN

Image
Hello, I’m briefly back online and feeling better.
Just  finished reading Francis Scott Fitzgerald’s Gatsby. A beautiful book, a page turner.
I loved it. However, I have a slight preference for Baz Luhrmann’s film.  Luhrmann’s movie fantastically depicts the loneliness and tragedy of this character, as well as the sincere friendship between Nick and Gatsby. 
Also, I’ll be busy working on new projects in the upcoming days. I’m currently in talks with a UK producer for a project, and I’m booked for several translations.
Many DNA to sign and many release forms too due to the high volume of screenplay requests at the moment…
Don’t worry for me if you don’t see me online everyday! I’m just a hard worker.

Love to all my wonderful friends!
Jordan.

Lana Del Rey - Young and Beautiful

Jordan Tate is still resting after this very stressful month. She'll be back on facebook and twitter in the upcoming days, though she still does not know the exact date. She deeply wanted to share this song with you. It is "Young and Beautiful" performed by Lana Del Rey, from THE GREAT GATSBY soundtrack, a movie that she deeply appreciated a few days ago. She's also been reading Francis Scott Fitzgerald' s book during her "forced rest."
She'll be busy working as a script editor for several producers and screenwriters in the upcoming weeks and in her own words, "will be signing a lot of DNA".

May 23, 1934, Bonnie and Clyde killed by police Clyde Champion Barrow and partner in crime Bonnie Parker, otherwise known as "Bonnie and Clyde," were legendary outlaws, wanted by the FBI for robbery, murder, and kidnapping. They were the subjects of "one of the most colorful and spectacular manhunts the nation had seen up to that time." The two came to a violent end, gunned down in their car, which was riddled with more than 70 bullets. 



Jordan is the proud author of PARKER AND BARROW-an account
of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's early life of crime and
misery. A poignant screenplay full of love and danger.

A STORY HAS ITS OWN LIFE TO LIVE...

When a producer purchases or options your script, he may ask you to rewrite your material to best suit the production or the actor attached to the project. I rarely rewrite my own material, I have the feeling a new writer will have a fresh vision of the story, and I truly don't want to immerse myself
into a story created months ago another time, this tale is out of my life and out of me...It has ceased
to live inside of me. I think a story has its own life to live, and cease to belong to you, as soon as the script has been written.
Jordan Tate.

PS: When you sign the option/purchase contract make sure the latter states the way you'll be credited.
For instance: Screenplay by you and the other writer. Or screenplay by you and adaptation by...

How much of a script does a hired rewriter have to change to receive a screenplay credit?

5 years old boy kills his sister with "his first rifle"

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2013/05/01/my-first-rifle-kid-shot/2126431/


"Just one of those crazy accidents" said the coroner.
I love the humor, but what I find totally crazy is buying a rifle to a 5 years old
boy and a law allowing kids to have guns!
