    Re: The Scriptshadow 250 Screenwriting Contest

    Thanks Jai.

    Yeah, his feuds with some powerful figures in the industry is a little concerning. Though, he still has ties to the big 3 agencies and some production companies.... I don't know how it all works with having enemies here and acquaintances there (I guess some agents and producers don't mind and still deal with him?) Did he attach himself to any of Alex Felix's scripts?

    As I understand it he wants to be a producer. This stretches back to The Disciple Program, where he wanted to attach himself to Marceca's script, but Marceca was against it (surely someone here knows more details than I).
    His goal with the 250 contest and moving forward is to find great scripts and (hopefully) attach himself as a producer. He's made more than a few enemies in the industry, so I can't see how his attachment would help a project. He's a big enough voice to continue breaking in writers, but in a town where relationships are paramount, the producing venture may be biting off more than he can chew.

    I've read the articles for some time and, being new to screenwriting, they've given me food for thought. But I don't think there's much more I can learn from them. I don't post comments there, and have no wish to get involved and be associated with it as a screenwriter.

    I think she's been gone and has been slut shamed by a pro writer.

    I didn't enter, but I was a finalist for his Twitter pitch contest a few years back. I know he's not very popular here, but entering the contest didn't make or ruin my non-existent writing career.

    This contest feels a bit self-defeating. If your script can make it past the thousands of entries and win, that must mean it's bloody awesome. And if it's bloody awesome, why go with a cheap $5,000 option when you could easily get one for $25,000 from someone else?
