The one in LA, who pitched his scripts via billboard to Kevin Costner?

I found this link while searching for "Jay Taylor" on Google. It's got a picture of one of the billboards.

I think it's a neat idea, but it doesn't matter unless the scripts are good. It would be interesting if anyone has an update from the guy himself.

I'm not sure what happened to Jay but I found this on IMDB. They used a similar tactic by advertising their scripts:


Writers Sell a Screenplay -- By Placing an Ad for It
A pair of first-time screenwriters who bypassed the traditional Hollywood system by taking out an ad for their screenplay in the Hollywood trade papers have signed a six-figure deal for it with the fledgling independent production company Vine Entertainment. In a statement, the company said that it had picked up Silver, by Chrisanna Northrup and Halle Eavelyn (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1665640/), when it became "the center of a fierce bidding war" following the writers' "unconventional sales approach." Northrup said in the statement, "I was told that we were crazy taking out an ad, but ... we were determined not be put off by the usual stories of how hard it is to sell a script in Hollywood."
