A guy named Carey Westbrook about submitting your screenplay into his festival? Itís a neo noir festival in LA, seven years running. He emailed me about one of my scripts and suggested I submit it. Just curious if anyone else got this.

I got it. Couldn't even get my title right and, while I do like writing neo-noir, this script wasn't one. Pass.

Did he tell you your script would definitely win an award at his festival?

Quoted from Mr. Blonde

He misspelled "Mr."?

Got one the other day.  It was a noir of sorts, which suggested it wasn't entirely spam...

Had two more today for scripts which are not noir.  Looks like they're trawling through the site to see who bites.  I gave it a cursory look, couldn't quite figure out what they were offering or why I should bite.

Not for me.

Straight to spam.  


My short scripts can be found here on my new & improved budget website:

At least I am in good company.

Just got it. I linked him to this thread and told him he could stop fishing around Simply.

Gotta respect the hustle, though...

I just got mine

This is my fave bit...

"If this script is submitted, it will definitely receive an award, an audience, and the live promotional event your screenwriting ability deserves.  How do I KNOW you will win an award?  I am the co-owner of this festival and I say so."

Unbelievable!!!

Jeez! If you are all guaranteed to receive an award, how many does this festival dish out?

I haven't looked the festival up, but I'm going to assume there is an entry fee?

Exploiting writers hopes and dreams, makes me sick, How has this guy been running this sham fest for so long? I don't get it

I've had four of these. How can all four definitely win an award?

Some of them were for titles I'd forgotten about. Like Deathly Shade of Blue. I almost wrote back saying that script was terrible and should never be filmed. I also got another for American Shark in London, probably the worst script I've ever written.

Got a few of these myself. All worded the exact same, other than the script titles.

Dustin, please email me American Shark in London. I need that in my life right now.
