Very disappointed that I didn't get an email telling me of my certainty of winning.

This is like the scene from "A Christmas Story" where the dad is telling everyone he won a major award and the award turns out to be a leg lamp in fishnet stockings.

As if this guy is still sending out these emails to SS members lol

In a completely unrelated note that has absolutely nothing to do with this thread, please keep an eye out for my new short "Sham-Fest"

I am running a competition for 'Best Logline'. If you submit a logline for the above short, you are GUARANTEED to win. How do I know? Because I wrote the thing and I say so!

Thanks

Matt

Haha! I’m in, dude. Wouldn’t want to tarnish your good name.

The initial thing that got me about my first email from this comp was the short of mine that he’d chosen — Close To Sunset. Now, the emails do look cheesy and form with my name and his name added. Nothing personal about them. But my Close To Sunset Short is probably the best thing I’ve written, and I’m like, Wow—someone finally recognized it. But of course, then came subsequent emails and, well, you know the rest.

And there lies my biggest issue with the whole thing, and why I will not put 'respect' on his name despite his pleas.

Scripts are our creations, our art, we put a lot into them. Once we have our creations, we put them out there, we open ourselves up for criticism and (hopefully) praise,  in the hope that someone in the biz will take a liking and bring our creations to life, or at least give us some recognition of our work.

So when a *censored* comes along, preys on our hopes and takes advantage of our dreams by pretending they have read and like our creations, it pisses me off annoys me.

Then to have the audacity to defend himself by insulting us? beggars belief.

When I was a kid, I wrote a poem, sent it into a competition I found online. I got a letter back telling me how great it was, how it got to the final of some prize. I was so excited I showed my Mom, who was proud - anyway - i researched them afterwards and it was a sham, everyone won - Then I had to tell my mom - I can tell ya, it bloody hurt.
