To the guy I met in a bar who recognized me from youtube-

I'll listen to your movie pitch.  I don't mind. 

But if you really believe in your idea, perhaps you should be guarding it.  Get an agent.  Get a manager.  Don't pitch your idea to a total stranger who could steal it or borrow it.  Seriously.  Don't.

At least find someone you trust who you can throw your idea at and they'll return some constructive criticism.

Thanks for the Makers on the rocks.

You want me to read your script? 

OK.  You should know I have zero connections in the film industry and I produce my own stuff because no one else will.  Okay?

But, yeah, I'll read your script.  I don't mind. Here's my card.  Send me the PDF.

It's not written yet?  Hmm. 

Oh, thanks for the second drink.

Yeah, I'll listen to the pitch.  Why not?

OK - that's about as real as I can remember the conversation I once had with a passionate bar patron.  Now here's a different perspective from a successful screenwriter who's been in the business for a while, Josh Olson. 

I Will Not Read Your Fucking Script

Thanks, Bolinas for the link.
