    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...

                    "In his reviews of scripts, Reeves displays an overly simplistic understanding of screenwriting craft and storytelling in general. He has a short attention span and low-level reading comprehension ability, leading to speculation by some that he may suffer some sort of brain tumor. 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.-

                      Good review. Whoever wrote that, I agree.

                        The only person with the actual name of the Scriptshadow creator that I could find on IMDb was once an editor for a short film. One 9-minute short “film” from 12 years ago. That was it. No other experience. Now, that might not be the same person — a cyber-sleuthing situation I’ve encountered before — but with that name, what are the odds of that? Regardless, I believe most of us here would agree that Scriptshadow is an aquarium net for catching screenwriting guppies.

                          Love that he says, after all that, "...I discovered what makes a script sell..."

                          wait for it...

                            This script was featured on his site and producers saw it and it sold, and the writer has since sold another spec.

                            https://deadline.com/2019/07/kevin-j...on-1202643411/

                            More recently, a policeman/writer whose script was featured, was contacted by reps who read the site , and got repped/optioned it -- Cop Cam (?)

                            http://scriptshadow.net/is-cop-cam-t...-scriptshadow/

                            At this point, that's a better average than something like the Black List (paid service) and no one is paying any money at all, let alone hundreds of dollars. They're just putting up scripts to compete in an "amateur offerings weekend."

                            I'm not saying anyone should feel any particular way about any of it. And I doubt very much he's got any role in their production. But that is three projects either repped/optioned or repped/sold directly because of his site in a year and a half or so. All specs.

                              Yes, but that doesn't change the fact that Carson Reeves is full of fvcking sh1t and knows nothing about screenwriting. I don't think anyone is disputing a few folks have been noticed there.
