Hollywood™ Trivia: the wall of the bathroom at The Comedy Store has a fun wallpaper featuring the likenesses of everyone who ever bought Quaaludes from a guy in the parking lot behind The Comedy Store.
I like this a lot because it’s super chill but still about something cool and tough like dealing druuuuuugs.
Fellow Filmmakers. Please don’t enter “competitions” that ask you to make spec ads for real companies. It’s shady. It’s gross. Don’t do it.
I’m writing this because I was contacted by a company who emailed me with a “great opportunity” to make a commercial for AT&T, and that there are “up to” $30,000 in awards. I responded that I believe what they’re doing is gross and wrong, and it tricks filmmakers into making commercials and posting them on social networking websites for their friends & family to see: thus giving the product more exposure.
The Doritos Super Bowl contest is the biggest offender here. I implore you all to not enter that contest, or any like it. Don’t make a commercial unless you’re being paid to.
Amen to this. Don’t do it. Value your work.
See you at Comic-Con!
