Hollywood Reporter: Joe Viskocil, Visual Effects Guru on 'Star Wars' Films, Dies At 63

Had the privilege of working on a commercial shoot with him when he won his Independence Day Oscar®. Nicest guy. All we’d hired him to do was torch a bungalow on stage to sell slacks of all things.

Luck for us, he had experience blowing up houses. RIP, Joe V.

Hey, Screenwriters! Coverage Ink's "Get Repped Now" Is Back!

You heard right — The response to Coverage Ink’s "GET REPPED NOW!" promotion over the summer was so off the charts that they brought it back for the fall.

Submit your feature-length script or TV pilot for “cream of the crop” analysis from now until 11.9.14, and all scripts scoring a “Consider” are GUARANTEED a read by a top Literary Manager for consideration for possible representation!

Yeah, you’re probably thinking, “Stop blowing smoke, man. This deal is too good to be true.” Well, it is good and it is true. Just ask writer Brandon Barker, whose strong work on his spec feature got him hooked up with Benderspink.

So now maybe you’re thinking it’s time to dust off, polish up and submit that script. It’s your turn!
