I did a one week rewrite on that for no pay back in 2006 (I did it for the experience.) But it was never released since it was shot in 2006 and I don't know if it will be. I assumed getting no pay to rewrite a still unreleased no budget direct to dvd maybe project two years ago doesn't disqualify me.
I think you're grasping straws here. The movie might be listed as "in post" but it was shot over 2 years ago and doesn't appear to be released anytime soon. All the info on it is old. My entire "work" was fixing a few lines over two days just to have the experience.
I think it's clear to me that the rules were put in place to keep paid professional writers who have credits out of the competition, not bartenders who eat ramen noodles and have never earned a penny for writing. Obviously I'd remove the "credit" in a second if it hurt me in this case or in others, but I don't see it being an issue.
To the best of my knowledge the movie was never finished and may never be, so I don't even know if that counts as produced anyways.
I really feel like I'm the last guy who should be targeted compared to others who may have done actual paid work in the last two years and might be considered pros.
FYI, that area in the skyline website has not been updated since early 2007.
