  1. Seriously what the hell is wrong with you? You need help. The man he's become isn't one you'd be proud of??? What fully functional adult talks like that about someone they don't even know personally? Poker is his job-period-and it would be absolutely pathetic if someone defined themselves solely by their profession. What he chooses to do with his time at the table or away is none of your business, to say that he can't seem to devote two hours to fans-wtf do you know? Do you know if he signs autographs and talks to fans in person? Do you know if he volunteers his time to charity's? It makes me
  2. You got legitimate offers and rather than actually seeing your project put on screen you decided to hold out for more? Interesting strat. Absolutely there are examples of screenplays that have been shelved for years generally speaking they were passion projects by established industry people but it's certainly a possibility. You answer everything I say in the most inane run around/avoidance cycle. But since you looped around to it I totally agree that half of Hollywood loves poker and the fact that they aren't actively looking to get involved with poker as a movie concept should say
  3. There's that density sticking out again. I actually gave multiple examples to both scenarios which you've ignored. As well I pointed out my entire point was flow not specific content. I've sold as many as you to this point and likely would never enter a contest. I actually got a pay cheque for writing this week which is I'm sure bounds above your screenwriting pay thus far. Restaurant business is good. Just took a decent job and negotiating the sale of a concept I developed hey look at that more selling stuff for me.
  4. I would imagine had he loved your script you'd have a very different opinion. You got a little recognition and should be proud of that but at some point you should've brushed that pride aside and taken an open minded look at the entire situation. I pointed out numerous very basic errors in what little you posted and would imagine those same sorts of errors echoed through out. But, you essentially ignored every question asked or answered it in the most nonsensical way. At what point do you stop resting on the little recognition you got and start asking yourself why nobody has been inte
  5. Actually I asked about the tag line/synopsis over a week ago had you responded that you had them but for some reason you felt posting on forums, spamming on twitter and starting pages on Facebook was better suited using other stuff the conversation would've went different, I would've disagreed and we would've went from the there. I'm not frustrated, I own businesses have functioned fairly well over the years. Write articles, essays as requested and write and push screenplays as time permits, If anything I owe you a thanks, reading the little dribble you've posted caused me to look back th
  6. You need a week and a half to formulate that response? I think if you're going to try and garner interest through the means you have like twitter, Facebook, forums those things would've served a much better purpose opposed to what you've done. However, if that's your stance how hard would it have been to answer that in the first place instead of the gigantic circle of nonsensical responses? That's completely insane...
  7. That maybe a brutal version of the summary of the coverage but it in no way operates as the coverage a reader would move up the ladder. I enjoy that you constantly state that you know what a log line and synopsis are but then state you don't need them as the coverage should serve the point. If you know what they are and understand the purpose you would understand why they are more important and useful than the coverage you have. Someone wanting to read your script would do so after viewing your query and then would do their own analysis/coverage of the script to forward to producers/execs
  8. My posts started out on a positive note here and even in giving some feedback I commended you. Any attitude I post with now is purely s result of the insanity that you've responded with. What you posted is far from traditional or proper coverage. Coverage is either typically done 1) as a paid service to show the writer how a paid reader would recommend or pass on the script 2) how a reader/producer/agent etc would pass the project upward in hopes of getting the project done. What you are showing here as "coverage" is a bland, information less review by someone who has reviewed over six
  9. Lol ten days since I asked about the very basic log line and synopsis that you haven't been able to answer and this is what You up with? This isn't even proper coverage and has been posted before and serves no purpose as it related to what i repeatedly asked, it tells absolutely nothing worthwhile about the script or the story in general. You're aware how many scripts will only get read because of a log line right? And you're aware that often the process goes: person in the business reads longline then asks for synopsis or treatment then asks for script right? You're also aware that an
  10. I'm totally allowed to make jokes like that some of my best friends are handicapped kids- I should've stated that first. Sorry
  11. Yeah I shouldn't have brought shepherds or fat girls into it. I apologize.
  12. Actually what happened was that I was pretty respectful offering some helpful hints on how to improve something that looked like it may have been written by a handicapped child. (No offence handicapped children) you took the constructive criticism about as well as my shepherd takes a rectal thermometer. Just like the fat girl who can't get a man but acts like she doesn't even want one you went about defending your screenplay in about the most nonsensical way possible. In fact here you are declaring you will answer some of my very basic questions when time permits because the multiple days
  13. I'm fairly certain to anyone with an iq above that of an average rock that its clear what you've written, what I've written, the narrative in what you've expressed and any hyperbole that may have been injected. It's also utterly clear that you've taken every opportunity possible to comment on the insignificant and avoid almost all relevant questioning and every logical point. You've dodged, danced around or outright ignored just about every reasonable point made. A helluva lot more then four times. You quote posts and respond or comment on the most mundane insignificant point and willfull
  14. Are you being intentionally dense? Honestly? Nothing discernible about it is something that I've said multiple takes which is clearly the case I've not once contributed that to you. Your entire theme of this and every thread regarding this issue is stating the importance of your screenplay for the poker world and how it's big news for the poker world. You've not shown or expressed that these judges had any interest whatsoever in your screenplay outside of the competitions. You haven't been actively marketing since 2009 but the majority of your online posting via forums, Facebook and twitt
  15. You do a wonderful job of answering things without actually answering anything...so out of the many many many questions I've asked and you've dodged I'll ask some again. There absolutely may be someone in Hollywood that could love your script, what are you actively doing to get in their hands? You've mentioned other marketing tools you're using, what are they? How come in every single presence you've created online to "promote" your screenplay you don't offer up the very basic and very routine tag line and synopsis? If Rounders 2 is a hit why would that make your screenplay more marketable? It
  16. There's one of many points here you seem to be missing. If these industry insiders saw nothing more compelling in your screenplay then those of their other 40 clients or the other 20 scripts they had to read to then why should anybody? Why would anyone think to buy it or put up the money to have it made? How many screenplays do you think the average agent sees in a year? How about producers? How many agents and producers are out there? How many movies actually get made? There are a ton of contests out there and any recognition is something you should be proud of but how many of these screenpla
  17. Whether they like poker or not is relatively pointless if they thought it was a bankable concept they'd push it forward. People don't often garner success in the industry only pushing things they like. If the story was compelling overall and as marketable as you seem to think those insiders would've fought for it or would've looked to help you move the project forward. In fact had they felt the overall story was compelling enough even with thinking poker wouldn't be marketable they would've looked to work with you and established industry people to keep the nexus of your story ie: characters,
  18. A year of an insane schedule just sort of stopped out of the blue so I'm bored....I need a hobby
  19. That actually doesn't answer most of my questions or points. Feel free to go back quote and answer. What other marketing tools are you using? You've got a Facebook page for your screenplay with no tag line or synopsis, why? To form query letters you would've had to include those things. You're here toting your award winning script but now are saying your newest version is much better, why improve on an award winning script? Why not re submit this version to the industry insiders that have read it and judged it to be awarding winning? Why not re submit it to others who have already read it?
  20. I think it speaks volumes that you'll take the time to respond to posts unless they're actually pertaining in a serious manner to the topic. If this was "news" in every sense of the word "news" it would've been a topic brought up here and elsewhere by people other then yourself. The entertainment insiders who judged your screenplay would've snapped it up on the spot before the inevitable bidding war began and you'd be sitting on the set of a big Hollywood production trying to take a breath between the rapid firing interview requests from poker magazines, online sites and podcasts.
  21. Why will you address things like this but not quality points and questions? If you actively pursued getting an agent a tag line, synopsis etc would've been an essential part of a query letter? Why haven't you looked to display these things anywhere that you've been pushing the importance of your screenplay? -my first script ( which sucked) was offered out to dozens of agents via a query letter and while a very very small percentage asked to read the script it did at least get my name out. Got me some feedback. I'd accidentally sent the treatment to a literary agent who while not the ri
  22. Totally deserved, it is on my short list of things to watch but I generally suck at watching tv.
  23. I've actually never seen Deadwood. It was one of a bunch of jokes that were met with unanimous silence during three disastrous attempts at stand up about fifteen years ago. Something like: Does anyone ever wake up completely hung over with the faint smell of foreskin on their breath? (Awkward silence) must be just me ( more akward silence and looks of disgust).
