DC Douglas and Freedomworks - posted by Don

We take you away from your regular programming for this Public Service Announcement.

My friend, voice over actor DC Dougles, recently got fired as vo talent from Geico. No, he wasn’t the gecko

(Well, DC is not so much a friend, but rather about five or six years ago he sent me an email asking if I would exchange website links with his voiceover site MyVoiceOverGuy. We did. I was one of the first sites to exchange links with him since my link is, like, at the bottom of his links page. A few years go I asked him if he was interested in recording a script for one of our One Week Challenges. He said no, ‘cuz he was painting his house.)

Anywhoo, DC Douglas was fired from Geico after leaving a drunken voicemail at Tea Party HQ Freedomworks. He’s back with an important, moving PSA: Please, please, don’t drunk dial the Tea Party.

Check out some background info on the whole thing here.

Hey, DC. If you do get blacklisted and have a little time on your hands and would be interested in recording a 15 page script, give me a call shoot me an email.

Martin Sanders – Script Agent – Scam - posted by Don

Here is the lastest twist on the Nigerian email scam.

Several writers have received an email from one “Martin Sanders” who claims to be representing Shoot Rajasthan Film (a legitimate film production company, by the way).

Phil (dogglebe) received one such email and posted it to the discussion forums.

The email contains a fake message from Shoot Rajasthan Film to Mr. Sanders purportedly asking Mr. Sanders to secure the rights to a particular script. Mr. Sanders then sends out an email informing you, the writer, that he and only he can represent your script for the mere sum of $300.

This is a scam.

Phil confirmed this with Mr. Dilip Kungwani of Shoot Rajasthan Film who responded, “thanks for your mail..this man is totally fake.”

You can read the full scam email and follow along the subsequent email exchange between Phil and “Mr. Sanders”. Phil decided to have some fun with Mr. Sanders. – Don

OWC - posted by Don

Tick, tock. The October OWC closes in three hours (11:49 pm eastern daylight time). The scripts are trickling in.

On another note, I reposted the August OWC selected scripts Our Time Deserves A Love Song. The wrong audio file was being presented on iTunes. So for those of you subscribed to the SimplyScripts podcast feed, the correct file should now be there. If you use iTunes, you can subscribe to the SimplyScripts podcast feed by clicking on this link.

Oh, and if you feel like it, you can be the first (or one of the firsts) to write a review of the SimplyScripts podcast on iTunes. – Don
