'Heroman' reaches Coverfly Top 3% ranking

'Heroman' has reached the Top 3% of all discoverable and all comedy projects on the Coverfly service. Although this is good news, it is only based on 5 of its many accolades, none of which are its wins. The ranking would've been a lot higher had they included ALL placements, especially the wins, but unfortunately, their algorithm is limited to when the competitions joined their ranking system. (So, only 2017 and later for the Nashville Screenwriting competition, for example, but not their inaugural 2014 competition where Heroman won in Sci-fi). Still not bad, I suppose.

Plagiarism in Hollywood: More true than we realise.

I can appreciate this silly kids' comedy because it shows what Hollywood producers and many (but not all) movie producers can be really like. Paul Giamatti even looks like that one I had a bad experience with and several scenes mirror my own personal experiences. Plagiarism is more rampant in the movie industry than we realise. Although no longer stealing entire scripts for legal reasons (it has happened to people I know), if you're a good enough writer, they will steal your ideas, characters, original jokes, lines of dialogue and even entire scenes to the point where they will render your own work stale or obsolete. Always be cautious when submitting your original work. Don't sign anything and be sure to check other writers' experiences.

It turns out that a short film I was a Kickstarter Producer on won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short film last night! So I guess, technically, that makes me an "Oscar winning producer"? 😂😂😂 Watch it here:

It's truly disconcerting when this happens. All the more reason to (a) get an entertainment lawyer and (b) not bother sending your work unsolicited to producers. Rip-off artists will always get what's coming to them and get blacklisted.
