Livin' and Learnin' - The Hard Way

This is my follow-up on the meeting I had with that production company almost two weeks ago.

If you'll recall, the person I met with said he was sending out my script for coverage and I was to call him back.I didn't need to wait. They called me today.

They wanted to know if I still wanted them to send my script out for coverage. I was - needless to say - a tad confused. I told them I was under the impression they had already sent it out. At this point I was put on hold. They came back on the line and said there must have been a misunderstanding. Apparantely, they want to send my work in for coverage, but they do not have the manpower to handle it, so I was advised they "know of some people at the studios that would be willing to do it for them".

And then I said, "But you want me to pay for it, right?"

"Well, yeah."

"So you're really not interested in my script, are you?"

"Not as it stands now, no."

Wow. I feel like such a fool. It's back to square one -- no, not even square one. I'm pretty sure that my script (at least for now) is D.O.A.

Since the company I met with seems to have no problems in taking advantage of people like you and me, I see no problem in outing them.

THE VINE ENTERTAINMENT, with Gino Cabanas and Cameron Graham, is a scam - pure and simple. Sure, they may have credits, but if they have to ask writers to pay for their own coverage, then that's not a company worth doing business with.

Gee, the last time anyone wanted to screw me that badly, at least I got dinner first.
