Thanks, Dustin, it doesn't hurt to know a few basic things.

I Googled these guys, and six out of the first ten results seem to have anything to do with yourfilm.buzz (and one appears to not be in English). I don't know if these guys are legit or not. But they appear to be based in Lyon, France. There's also a (possibly unrelated) yourfilm.com that's based in Newcastle, UK.

Just putting this out there for everybody to see. I'd keep an eye on these guys.

I got that email too... I just ignored it. It's exactly the same model as Stage 32... what's the point?

Yep I got it too... I've uploaded a short and I'll upload a couple more and see what happens (if anything).

Their model does seem to be different to Stage 32 so there may be room for it... but only time will tell.

I'll keep people posted if anything happens.

Oh my. So many posts... So little time. We are all dying. I did on stage last night. Again.

In the comedic, sort of Oooh Dear tough crowd kinda way. It was going well. Then the hecklers... basrstards... started.,..

What is wiv all the dots? I do wonder.

Now, the question is this. Will they delete me? Eh?

What day is it? Where am I? How are you? The last question is the most relevant.

You can be whomever you want. Carnegie Hall? Really? I just wanna sing and dance and speak in the pub or the bar without the fools shouting shite. I didn't my people (locals) would let them. I was wrong, Fool me once.

Next time I shall get on the dog. And chew a bone. Literally.

Film is metaphor. Cinema is often allegory. Read Ancient Greece. Look up the Romans. The roamers. Roam, if you feel it's all good. And it's a beautiful day. TO you I mean.

Oops. Me so lazy. I can't even be arsed correcting my text,

Not on here. My angels watch. They are everywhere... Aren't you?

You wanna write stories? In script form? Screenplays. Oops. There is a queue. Oh dear. It is getting longer ever fecking day.

Oh yes.

However, if you write a story even Mr. or Mrs Hollywood says "wow" to then, hey. Who knows?

I tell myself the above sentence every single day of my miserable anonymous life. Me? I'm a shitkicker from nowhere with practically nuthin... But... I dream. Every single day. Write. Write it. Post it. Check it. Check it again. Don't post until you are certain, righter. Er, writer. Learn.

This place feels safe to me. I have been wandering these boards for years. Oh yes.

You wanna write? Do it. I cannot help you more here. Or you could PM me. Or a Mod. Me... I more rocker.

Now... I'll be on the beaches. Watching the tide. The Mods may turn up. What, again>

Oops. They are in charge. We nod to each other near the Cliff. A bloke called Richard, or was it Bette sez Hey

What? From a distance.

I can hear summat. Shyite I forgot about me cooker.

Be good. No, be better than everybody else. Tall order. But you can. Try it. I do.

Great thread. Looking forward to following it.

The first script I posted, Bar Code Scan, which was pretty much slammed by the community (and rightly so), was picked up by a young film student. She was at some private christian college and had to cut any cuss words. Including "damn". I saw the finished product. Hopefully her professor was the only other person on earth to ever see it.

I understand I'm writing shorts here. I'm not going to make any money. But I have, at least, learned that I need to engage the person who wants to film the script. What's the budget? well, nothing. Okay, what are you doing to find actors? Camera? Lighting?

I know that they are going to have nothing. But if they explain to me that they are going to use the library book check-out stand as a grocery I may have second thoughts about allowing them to use the script.

I got an email a few days ago about Bigfoot in Love, which, you might remember, I wrote for the urban legend OWC.

The producer, based in Arizona, is named Joseph Muhammad of Gold Mind Films, LLC.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2444070/

He has two films in post-production:
Into the Dark (short)
ZELL (feature)

Cancelled Kickstarter for Into the Dark (Looks like they found funding elsewhere)

Gold Mind Films has an official site, a FB and a Twitter. I've been on the fence while I've vetted this guy. He seems legit enough. Should I dive in?

I was contacted by a representative of a production company about selling the IP for my "Dancing in Circles" script that's on this site. The rep' would like to know my price. I have no idea how to proceed in this matter. Can someone give me an idea how to proceed?

Thank you. I hope so too. I'm pretty excited, either way, it's a step in the right  direction.

Nick - did you answer a now deleted thread or a private message?

Anyhow, that's a pretty unusual request, nearest I've had is when someone bought one of my short scripts to turn into a feature but didn't need me to write it. I sold it for more than any other short before or since and built in a bonus when it got made (it still hasn't).

I'd ask them exactly what rights they are wanting to acquire as a starter for ten and what they intend to do with it.
