JOHN AUGUST'S ADVICE ON WORKING FOR FREE...SAME AS MINE! DON'T!

JOHN AUGUST'S ADVICE ON WORKING FOR FREE...SAME AS MINE! DON'T!

When is it okay to write for free?

questionmarkI’m a relatively new screenwriter, also working as a PA and doing script coverage. I’m loving it but it’s not helping me on actually getting my writing out there at all. While the coverage is helping me grow as a writer it’s not helping me get a foot in the door, so to speak.

This has left me looking around for any writing gig I can land to help get my name out there, but I’m quite unsure as to if I should even approach an unpaid writing position. Not that I’m not willing to put the work in but I just don’t want to get screwed over.

Am I right to be wary of these types of positions? I just don’t know how to get my work out there.

Any work you’re not getting paid for should be yours and yours alone. That’s why aspiring screenwriters write spec scripts. That’s what you should focus on writing.

Still, there may be situations in which it makes sense to write a scrip…

ONCE AGAIN JORDAN...

DOES NOT TAKE ON UNPAID PROJECTS.

She's getting this type of offer everyday in her inbox and although she's touched by your interest, she's a professional screenwriter and can not accept to work for free.
Every good project has some funding in place to pay the screenwriter. She has already accepted to lower her fees for projects she loved, but she does not take on unpaid projects and won't take on unpaid gigs.

As we say: You get what you paid for...So hiring an unpaid screenwriter is the best way to get a terrible screenplay.

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!

UN POST INTÉRESSANT que j'ai trouvé sur le net, j'adore lorsque quelqu'un poste une annonce
pour trouve un scénariste "bénévole" personne ne travaille gratuitement, et un scénariste
bénévole ne sera rien d'autre qu'un amateur!  De plus ne pas payer quelqu'un pour son travail est une expression flagrante d'un grand manque de respect pour cette personne. J'aime la réponse qui lui est faite à méditer pour ceux qui ont encore le culos de demander à  quelqu'un de devenir un esclave!

Comme tous les scénaristes professionnels, je reçois ce genre de merveilleuses offres
toutes les semaines dans ma boite email, des USA, d'Europe, de France et de Navarre...
Je ne peux malheureusement que décliner ses "projets" prometteurs de temps perdu.

Someone sent me this today...It's been painted  by French artist  Fanny Bourgeois Le Boulaire. Thank you so much for the lucky charm!

Fanny has been suffering from arthrogryposis, making her unable to use hands and legs. She is a mouth painter. Check out her superb work...I have completely fallen for this painting "LE FOU"

HAPPY SPRING FROM JORDAN TATE

Happy Spring! I wish you a very creative season. As you know, I'm currently busy working on a new
screenplay, I've made several notes for the third act of my first draft. The script is a
french written historical drama that will take place in Southern France.
This year 2014 has started out very well, with great meetings with wonderful artists who are
a great source of inspiration to me. My advice, always avoid negative people and focus
on those who are sending good vibrations your way!

I'm also getting several offers for books adaptations at the moment. I have turned down several of them because many were similar to what I had done in the past, I'm just waiting for the right subject to come my way.
Stay tuned!

Jordan.
