According to Studio System, yes, he's still there. But don't take it as gospel.

Super nice people there. I recently got a read. As expected, my comedy was too broad for them (which they explained in the response). They said they go for more of a "humanistic" approach in comedy, which you can see in all of their work. In other words, they go for smart, not broad comedy. Payne is one of the very best writer-directors in his genre -- and also runs a very humanistic company.

^Good to know, thanks.

The old email address I had for him bounced, so I thought he might be gone. Maybe he changed it. Got ahold of someone else, though.

For what it's worth, Ad Hominem also on Virtual PitchFest with
"Evan E" listed as principal. You can, thus, pitch them via VPF
(for $10), but no guarantee you'll reach Evan or any other power
-that-be at AH.

In fact, after reading all the good stuff about Ad Hominem on this
forum board, I decided to pitch that company (in care of Evan Endicott) with a comedy of mine.

In fewer than five minutes, he responded (a world's record for
me, vis-a-vis, VPF), and here's what Evan (presumably) said:

"Great pitch, just not the right kind of material for my company. Best of luck!"

Though a turn-down, his response was, BY FAR, the most encouraging
rejection I've received via VPF. In truth, about 98% of such rejections have been of the canned variety.

You can add me as another major "fan" of Ad Hominem after this experience. Definitely made my Friday!

Yeah, I don't know if VPF updates their listings. It doesn't seem that they ever change anything, including what the rep is looking for when they sign up with VPF. Certainly all that changes, but VPF stays the same. Like you said, presumably it was Evan, but you never know.

Sounds like you had a good pitch, anyway. Nice job!

I know this is an old thread, but I'd be grateful if anyone would share Alexander Payne's email at Ad Hominem. Thanks ahead.

Is Evan still there? If so I'd very much appreciate his email.
