I paid Scott Markus for script notes. I thought it was a safe bet. What could go wrong? He went to film school and seems to work in film and seems to be an associate producer at NetworkISA - WRONG!
He's a jerk. He read my script and liked it. He really liked it. He liked it so much, he stole it!
It was the second draft of a super high concept idea that i knew would sell and he stole it.
What a jerk. Scott Markus stole my script. Evidently that's his game. He gets people to trust him and then he rips you off. My script was good, but not great yet so i submitted it to a couple comapnies to get notes and his notes were by far the worst. All he did was hype my shit and tell me nice things when what i really wanted were notes and ways to make it better and then the next thing I know, he's out there pitching it to other people.
He seriously stole my script idea and premise, slightly reworked my material and then went out and pitched it himself.
Scott Markus is a liar and a thief. He's a total scumbag, grifter. Fuck Scott Markus. Scott Markus is a deadbeat.
