Default Scriptshadow

I just learned Carson Reeves thinks he is going to be a producer? What a time to be alive.

I thought he was already producing, no? It sounded that way on his site at some point in the past.

This is just incredible. The arrogance. The grandiosity. The self-assurance.

Thought he was associated with a script recently. Guess not. Maybe it was just that he agreed with the ranking of one on the Annual Black List.

Does he have the contacts? Isn't Carson Reeves a pseudonym? It would seem that if he has the contacts he would have already attached to something as a producer, no? Curious...

Maybe you are thinking of getting MEAT noticed?

I’d imagine he knows some people. I just think the idea that reading a bunch of scripts means you can produce is nuts. Especially given the fact that his one-size-fits all, magic bullet, Buzzfeed ten-secrets-to-writing-a great-script-you-won’t-believe approach is just so obnoxious.

The guy triggers the hell out of me. And I’m hardly a card carrying member of the politically correct (whatever that means in current context) blue check mark brigades but the guy just strikes me as toxic.

Carson Reeves is a pseudonym, and it's not hard to find out his real name with some internet searching. He doesn't trigger me. I also don't buy what he's selling. Occasionally I check out his site when there is a new script out and I want to get a quick run down. I wouldn't rule him out as a producer, but I don't think it's gonna be as easy as he does...

He is like a med-school drop out, who may be able to diagnose the most basic of ailments with your script, but does not have the knowledge or experience to successfully treat it.”
