Apparently, ethics are an increasingly optional part of some people's belief systems...

I'm not going to lie, I feel disheartened that my scripts aren't even good enough to receive a fraudulent email lol

How many writers, who are not part of communities like this, are falling for this and entering their scripts under the promise of an award?

Quoted Text
Clowning Around and LA Neo Noir's Response to "Phishing" Accusations.

CAREY WESTBROOK IS "PHISHING" FOR SCRIPTS is the libel many screenwriters spread on the simply scripts message board right now.  Talented screenwriters, albeit ignorant uniformed screenwriters, have joined ignorant forces to spread lies and besmirch my character. I did not know what "Phishing" was so I looked it up:

PHISHING phish·ing/'fiSHiNG/ noun: phishing: the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.  

The 2019 7th Annual L.A. Neo Noir Novel, Film, and Script Festival is real and has been real for the past seven years.  Visit:

http://www.filmfreeway.com/laneonoir

...and lanneff.com and see for yourself our four and a half stars and dozens of reviews and celebrity documented quotes and celebrity premieres for yourself.  Listen to how excited and happy screenwriters are to be a part of our festival on our radio show on lanneff.com Google search Carey Westbrook.  IMDB search Carey Westbrook.  See how this festival is ranked in the top 100 festivals out of over 5,000 festivals, and hailed by L.A. Weekly as the festival with "The World's Sexiest, Darkest, Crime Short Films."  

I encourage you to place this post on the simply scripts message board, and if you go to submit your script through filmfreeway.com/laneonoir in the FEARLESS SIMPLY SCRIPTS WRITERS category, you may enter $5 cheaper than the current rate.  Because I know from doing this for several years, most people are too scared to try new things and only four out of 100 writers will even take me up on this offer,  I offer this promise until January 1st:  Every neo noir writer (this includes you and your script, Clowning Around) who enters through filmfreeway through the FEARLESS SIMPLY SCRIPTS category, will be accepted into this festival and we will show an excerpt of your script as a movie at our festival.  Enter the festival and see what it's about so that you may criticize it with an informed critique.  You must have a script on simply scripts to be a part of this.  We are making this offer until January 1st.  I cannot make this comment on the simply scripts message board and respond to my critics because I am not a simply scripts member and I no longer write scripts.  I only make Academy Award nominated producers of scriptwriters.  So put some respect on my name.

Happy Holidays,

Carey Westbrook

Unbelievable


P.S If you read this for some reason Carey Westbrook - Nobody claimed you or your festival don't exist, we (well, I am, I can't speak for others) are questioning your unethical methods of luring in as many script writers as possible to enter (and pay the fee) under the pretence you have read, or even care about the scripts you mention, and the promise of an award - You do not even do it subtly, sending the same copy and paste message several times to the same person. Exploiting the dreams of screenwriters for financial gain is deplorable

I never get scammed or anything on this site, it's not fair!

I tell you what I do get through. Every time I enter a competition or film festival and tweet it, I get several obscures festivals following me, they then try to get me to enter theirs, unfollow me only to follow me again the next time I tweet something similar.

I think it's the equivalent of ambulance chasers.

By the way, no one here used the word "phishing". That would have been a serious accusation, but no one made it.

The words "fishing" and "trawling" were used to describe the indiscriminate nature of the solicitations.

I asked what Award I was going to win, here's my response...

"Hello, Anthony!

Your award depends on all the items our sponsors will give us this year,
and whatever we make up.  Currently, there's best screenplay, best scene, best dialogue, etc.,
So I can't tell you what you'll win.  I can only tell you that you will win something, and something
is better than nothing.  If you really want to know you'll have to get in and find out.  
Thank you for your interest in the L.A. Neo Noir Novel, Film, and Script Festival.  

Neo Noir Cheers,

Carey Westbrook
Director"


Does it really say 'whatever we make up' ???

It's like one of those 'Win every time' games at the fairground. I'll give him $25 (Sorry $20, you have kindly given us a discount), hand him a duck I just hooked and he'll give me a novelty pencil.

My favourite review on the festival website comes from Jean Barker in May 2018:

"This was a strange festival. They screened the films on a TV in a conference room using the TV speakers. Oddly, they didn't screen some of the shorts they gave prizes to. No photos, none of that usual stuff. They handed out tons of awards - perhaps too many. The animations made based on the scripts were hilarious - but not really representative of the scripts at all because all the female characters wound up wearing bikinis for some reason. I would say this is something to enter to ratchet up your credits, but not a festival to fly cross-country for, so I was glad I already lived in LA."
