Before you give Jason Zimmatore a cent, check out the user feedback on this competition. I was a brad "winner" in 2010 and received nothing -- no trophy, no interview on the website, no script coverage -- in short, NO PRIZES. Jason ignored all attempts to contact him via email. He should be shut down. Spread the word.
I wonder if he's connected with Kimberly Seilhamer, of the Brass Brads website. Because I had a similar (actually worse) experience w/ her script service two years ago, when I paid her $300 for script coverage and got nothing but a runaround until I finally (after some choice words) gave up.
I second this emotion. Please see my previous post about being the 2010 Drama Winner and receiving absolutely nothing. Jason and company have stopped responding to my emails.
Ditto to all comments.
I "won" 2011 drama, and zero response to my several emails since, contrary to prompt responses when entering!!!.
(I did brag to my friends and relatives, though. But they have yet to put up the $30 mil for production!)
If anyone from Golden Brads is reading this -- please answer your emails!
Sorry about your experiences, but thanks for the heads up!
Has anyone noticed that The Golden Brads don't seem to be running in 2012? I'm hoping that the fact I have alerted the FBI to Mr Zimmatore's failure to provide prizes, and the rewards his "competition" offers, for the last 2 years, even though he's raked in thousands of dollars from aspiring writers, is providing a few sleepless nights for him.... But just in case he resurfaces anywhere else, with any other competition, don't give this con man a cent.
2010 Short Script "Winner"
hey Mark, youre absolutely right...no where now, not on Withoutabox or on google for 2012 comp for MSC or Golden Brad..... soooooo, maybe Zimmatore has gotten word of some serious nonfulfillment for what, two years now?
i think some changes have occurred -- if you check out whois.net and put in movie script contest this gives you the registered domain owner. always an excellent starting point for people who are supposedly running a business on the internet.
i can't imagine what happened with this contest... esp in light of the good comments from its early years.
pls let us know of any response/progress. good luck to you. peters
I think the postal inspector (in the city that person is in) would be the correct person to contact.
Also the state attorney general (in the relevant state) could get on the case.
To all: thanks for the heads up.
