Lame and Lamer

I got a call today from Mark at THE VINE ENTERTAINMENT. Remember them? They're the production company from the post below that turned out to be one giant red herring. Anyway, it seems they received my screenplay and are very interested in setting up a meeting with me.

Say what?!

I told Mark that I had already had one meeting with Cameron Graham. He was understandably confused and said he'd talk with Cameron about it. I told him not to bother. Then I told him I believe his company to be a sham and not to contact me again.

Three hours later I received another call. This time, from Warren (the receptionist/assistant) at THE VINE. He asks me what I meant by "Their company is a sham"? I told him that any production company that boasts of a $60 million dollar account ripe for productions, and then turns around and asks writers to pay for their own coverage is not on the level. His response was, "Well, then you don't understand how independent productions companies work."I told him I was this close to calling the Better Business Bureau on them, and not to contact me again.

So, what do you think? Will I get "blacklisted" by them? Should I expect a 350-pound thug on my doorstep in the middle of the night?

I had the same experience with "The Vine" last week. I just posted about it and then figured I'd google "Vine Entertainment" and "coverage" and found you.

At least you rated the VP of Development. I just got Warren the intern.

Hey Cath (can I call you that?), did you get my email tale of woe about my experience?
