Quoted from Dustin
Could you post the email, Khamanna?


Here it is, below:

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, who know nothing about my festival and I, have joined ignorant forces to spread lies and besmirch my flawless reputation and a four and a half star gold festival seven years strong.  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."  
Notice on our winners page the number of people who REPEATEDLY come back to our festival every year.  You would think after SEVEN YEARS of doing this, over 1,000 films and scripts as movies screened, if some nefarious distasteful scam was taking place there would be ONE report of someone being scammed somewhere.  I don't do this festival because I say it's great.  I do this festival because YOU, the screenwriter, say it's great, and you keep coming back, year after year, letting me know you are LOVING IT.  Look at my track record and look at the record of my uniformed critics who have never met me, never have been or attended ANY of my festivals, and most have no track record of their owns.
I encourage you to place this post on the simply scripts message board, and if you go to submit your script through 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, It Takes Two) 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.  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

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

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.

It's strange and pointless. The guy who runs it is also an unethical douche who targets writers hopes and dreams... I forget his name

There's a thread from a few months back where this guy sent countless emails to several SS members (sometimes multiple emails) with the same cut and paste message (basically saying he loved *insert script title* and if the writer submitted it to his festival it would deffo win a prize)

Unless this is a different L.A neo noir film festival? I doubt it
