Hope you take home gold!" he gets right back to me "Thanks, man! Fingers crossed." But when I ask these 2 guys to read my script? I say, I can send direct or have my rep send........ GHOSTED!
I don't GET this town
I've been at this for over fifteen years and things have definitely gotten worse. Unless you're an A-lister, and I know there are several here, the lowly screenwriter is expected to have "attachments" in place, to even be considered. Then, what the F*ck do we need producers for? Supplying kick-ass content isn't enough, apparently.
