Let's be honest, the so called "professionals" on Stage 32 are only accepting pitches for the money, not to actually find or help any script writers and make them the next success story. It's easy taking dollars from those that are desperate to make it big. All it takes is a few connections in this industry to start your own website like this. I'm a published author so I have some experience and knowledge to pull from, and I'll be happy to share how my first Pitch Feedback went on Joke 32. They wanted a short pitch or synopsis so I submitted a synopsis and logline. First off, the ‘professional' in question was two weeks late on getting to my scheduled written pitch. When he finally got around to it, he wrote things like this: "I would've liked to know the protagonists exact age. How many kids does he have or not have, what is the color of his eyes or his hair, how long was he in the military for, etc. LMAO! Are you kidding me?! This is a brief overview of a story, hence a pitch or a synopsis broken down into a page or two. If I wrote every ridiculous detail about how the protagonist looks, acts, what he eats and where he $#*!s, it would be 30 pages long. I guarantee if I had added all that, he'd say there were way too many unnecessary details. The ‘professionals' say a few pointless remarks to get paid I guess. He gave me 3/5 on every column, meaning he had no notion of how to rate any of it. I would've actually liked to have seen a 2/5 here and there rather than 3/5 on everything. At least that would show effort on his part. There was clearly no imagination behind his review, just a bland personality giving out a short sighted opinion. Remember folks, sometimes critiques don't mean much as we all have thoughts on someone else's work. That's why ‘Critics' and ‘Public Audience' on Rotten Tomatoes can't ever come close to agreeing on a feature. That's why on every single YouTube video, some people will like it and others will dislike it. It doesn't mean anyone's opinion is right or wrong so take it with a grain of salt. You have famous people like Walt Disney who was told he wasn't creative enough. Oprah Winfrey was told she was unfit for television news. Elvis Presley was told to stick to truck driving because he'd never make it. Well, guess what, those three individuals became some of the most famous and successful people ever! Imagine if they would've listened to those morons, the ‘professional' naysayers, who thought they knew what they were talking about. I'd steer clear if you want true professionalism. Heck, you'd get a better and more honest critique sending your writings to me. Trust me on this. Nothing written was of any value whatsoever.
