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:
...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.
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
Hi ya'll, I've received a couple of emails from these guys. They found two of my 'noir' scripts on here and suggest I enter them. I know it's a way of getting people to submit to make more money but it is legit, it's just in 'baby' stage at the moment.
Has anyone else had an email from these guys? Or has anyone entered this one?
"Turn that off, our friend has just been killed in a fatal sunlight accident!"....
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.

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