So I think it's safe to officially call this one dead in the water, which is a shame because it looks like a fair bit of work went into it and I think it would have actually turned out great.

This is another instance where the filmmaker just stopped replying to emails.

Anyway, this was a roughcut he made, it has no colour correction, no sound editing, no final score, it's missing a few scenes and a pretty important voice over towards the end. It's a bit of a mish mash really.

They sure did a lot of work on this before abandoning the project. Odd. Makes you wonder what happened.

Emails usually stop in my experience when they haven't even started filming, or in one case where the entire film was made after the Option ran out and I had no clue.

You never know, perhaps he or she will come back to it.

Yeah it boggles the mind. So much work, and probably a bit of money and then nothing. It's been almost 2 years now so I think it's safe to say it's done and dusted.

Happens to me a lot. I worked in business for 30 years - I can easily say that this business is the most unreliable one I've ever been engaged with. People stop returning emails is a way of saying no thanks - rather than just the normal - thanks, but we are not pursuing this because...

It's a bit maddening

Oh man that's so annoying. Baffling too. Back in my acting days I did a couple of gigs that once shot, never made it through the edit.

And one of them involved me freezing my bullocks off wearing nothing but my undies during the winter in an abandoned warehouse too.

Seriously, fucks me off when I think about it.

My guess is the director was more excited by the fantasy of being a director, rather than the actual end result.

There is no common courtesy at all, it's really strange. I think if this was my only film in the works I'd be pretty devastated, but thankfully there are good, reliable, and friendly people out there to work with. Some filmmakers have been an absolute pleasure to work with and we've actually remained friends after all is said and done.

Oh well, good with the bad right.

It always makes me think that the filmmaker could be shooting themselves in the foot...

If they do the same thing with all the writers whose work they want to produce (Communication, communication...NOTHING) - Then if the filmmaker later finds they want to produce a different script from one of those writers, will those writers work with them again? I wouldn't...

I have started a Good/Bad list - On it I have the names of producers/directors who have contacted me and then very rudely stopped with no explanation or no "thanks but no thanks" - I won't bother with them next time.

Is that petty? probably... But I don't like rude people.

Very sorry this didn't work out for you.

I actually like that idea, maybe we should have a thread on SS with all the names at the shitty filmmakers

Tyna Ezema has also contacted me, attempted to option a short, and then dropped off the face of the Earth. I think she casts a broad net.

EDIT: That was about a year ago. Then she contacted me through another medium (clearly having forgotten our last interaction) asking me to write a short based on her location and cast available, filled with grammatical and spelling errors, because she "liked my work". Being petty, I ignored it.

The even more random thing is that while it was Tyna that optioned it and decided to make it, it then ended up in the hands of a guy named Rohit Govardhanam. He ended up being the filmmaker and the person that I started corresponding with.

When the film went up on IMDb he initially added himself as a writer as well. I objected heavily and it was change back to just my name.

The whole thing has been one of the more weird experiences I've had, however there is an SS member that did get a completed film out of Tyna, so who knows.

I honestly donít care about credits and all that - especially if the director does make a significant change to the script - but being asked to write something (Iím assuming for free) by a person who couldnít be bothered to proofread her emails really annoyed me.
