Quote of the Day: Roger Ebert

We live in a box of space and time. Movies are windows in its walls. They allow us to enter other minds, not simply in the sense of identifying with the characters, although that is an important part of it, but by seeing the world as another person sees it.

The Salary You Can Hope to Make in Hollywood

downloadThe Hollywood Reporter has surveyed the industry and come up with a pretty comprehensive list of what different professionals in Hollywood can expect to make, including writers who are selling scripts to studios.

Here’s what THR has to say:

FILM WRITER $100K-$1M A DRAFT
Feature film writers’ incomes continue to slide. According to the WGA West, screenwriters in Hollywood earned a combined total of $331 million last year, down nearly 25 percent from 2009. But some of them are doing pretty well. A screenwriter who sells a draft to a major studio can earn about $100,000, and a hot writer can score $1 million or more. Super scribes such as Alex KurtzmanRoberto Orci and Simon Kinberg pull in as much as $5 million annually in writers’ fees (more when you add in residuals and producing earnings), while other top screenwriters earn closer to $2 million. read more »
