The tale of a Struggling Screenwriter or "How Not to Get Your Movie Made"

American Star is a screenplay about a rock and roll dream that comes true. The problem is the screenwriter's dream of making the ultimate Rock and Roll Movie is a dream that is not coming true. Getting the right people to even know your screenplay exists, is nearly impossible. I have read 1000 websites about screenwriting and how to get your script into the right hands and have had absolutely zero success. At some point I decided that maybe I have been going about this all wrong. Instead of trying to get my movie made by Hollywood, maybe I should think about making my movie on my own. OK, the first thing that I would need to do is downsize the script to a more manageable size.........I don't believe i can shoot the scenes in the 80,000 seat stadiums and make it realistic. Stay tuned. I'll be back, when I have revised the script.

Personally, I think it's a great idea. Maybe a harder road at first but a better movie at the end. If ya need any help ... holler, or something!
