Default Re: Done Deal Managers

As a side note - at one time a person with a great deal of experience in Hollywood did actually come here and announce that he was starting his own agency and invited members here to submit screenplays to him for evaluation and possible representation. While several members responded appropriately with questions, there were a number of responses along the line of, "Why the hell should I entrust my screenplay to someone with no experience as an agent?" and "You must be a scam artist."

Needless to say, the agent withdrew his offer. Another consequence was that a mid-level reader for MAJOR talent agency who was an active member here and frequent contributor was so put off by the reaction that he abandoned this site, never to return.

A few people with stupid remarks pretty much spoiled it for the rest of us.
