HOW FULL OF SHIT ARE YOU?

LOL. Kyle must think I'm a fucking idiot.

As a producer, you'll come across people that are flat out idiots. Case in point;

Here I am offering this guy an opportunity and this is how he says thank you.

I sent him the screenplay and then;


Me: Got the script excerpt? 2:34 PM

Kyle Fasanella: Got it. Will read asap 2:39 PM

Me: It's basically to see if you're interested before reading the full script. 3:22 PM

Kyle Fasanella: Very interested. But love to know about the project too. Why it is being made, budget Ect 3:32 PM

Me: Great! We're not really sure what you meant by; why is it being made. 3:56 PM

Kyle Fasanella: I mean, is it being made for fun, distribution, promotion, Festivals, Ect 4:04 PM

Me: All of the above. It's a short picture so the main focus will be festivals and "promotion." 4:09 PM

Me: You like the genre? 4:30 PM

Kyle Fasanella: Love it. We should talk about it soon. 4:52 PM

Me: I thought we were talking about it. 4:58 PM

Kyle Fasanella: I mean over the phone when I get a chance. 5:00 PM

Me: If you're "busy" it's no problem to pass. 5:05 PM

Kyle Fasanella: Not at all. When would you like to talk? 5:12 PM

Me: I can send you the completed short and then we go in-depth into development. Does that work for you? 5:21 PM

Kyle Fasanella: Sounds good. I will give you a call after I read it. 5:22 PM

Me: Project Type: Short Film 7:35 PM

Me: Anything else you wanted me to go over? 10:34 PM

Kyle Fasanella: Just got back from Steadicam yoga. Heading to bed after shower. Lots of great stuff. We can talk tomorrow.


Ok! Steadicam yoga? I'll buy it. The next day, he sent a different excuse;


Kyle Fasanella: Hey Robb, had to get some stitches. Avoided a car but hit a pothole. Hurts to talk ATM. But love to know about the film and everyones relation to it. 8:51 PM


Hmmmmm. Steadicam yoga and then some sort of accident? Possible? Yes! Did it really happen? You can't write this shit!

YOUR UNIQUENESS IS BULLSHIT!

There is no such thing as "individuality." It's a great marketing term used to sell A LOT of products. Did you catch the irony in that? A product marketed as "unique" is sold to the masses. We all copy from the multiple sources and form a collage that we can claim as unique and then shout; tadaw! I made something completely new. I hate to burst your rebellious-I'm-ever-so-unique bubble, but the reality is; no idea is original! I'm not saying you shouldn't try, I'm just saying......
