As I mentioned, I wanted to step away from my pitch for Adonis for a little while, but then I wanted to give it again. I was having trouble interpreting the feedback I got the first time around, so I wanted to give it again, exactly as I did before, just to get another data point. If I got the same feedback, that might mean it was worth trying to amend my pitch to meet it. If I got different feedback, it might provide new perspective.

So I did. I signed up for a session that was seeking "big franchiseable blockblusters." The only amendment I made was to add in actor ideas, as that was requested; I mentioned my boy Chris's name without too much squealing, and for Diana I said Jessica Chastain, as Ben Federlin suggested. Otherwise I gave it exactly as I did before. Again I heard, "Very good pitch," and the only question I was asked was the size of the budget-- very expensive, I admitted, which would I would hope be offset by the franchise potential.

I did this on Wednesday. Today I got my response back. But it wasn't a "feedback sheet." It was a request. He requested to see the script.

I am ecstatic. I made my five-minute pitch interesting enough that he wants to see the script. I sent it along today, newly edited for version 7. And it's a good script. The best thing I've ever written. It already got into the top ten percent of a major screenwriting contest; it's quality has respectable outside confirmation. It should engage and impress when read.

I know it is unlikely that anything further will come of this. I seriously, seriously doubt this is going to lead to him buying the script, much less producing it. But it could lead to other opportunities, which would be amazing for me. And even if nothing else happens, I GOT HIM TO ASK FOR THE SCRIPT. On my second try. If nothing else, I know I can pitch. I am really proud of myself.
