I was wondering what to write today when I saw a trending thread at the hive of scum and villainy (and idiocy) known as Reddit/Screenwriting.
Obviously you can’t prove that A.I. wrote it just from looking at it...but it does seem like typical A.I.-generated pablum.
But the sad truth to me is that A.I. and high-school level essay writing seems a lot alike.
And the real problem with the Black List website, I’ve come to learn, is that there is such variability to the quality of the reviewers, it’s not worth a $100 yank of the script-review slot machine arm in the hope you get a smart reviewer who also likes your script.
The owner of the Black List always responds that all of their reviewers have spent at least a year writing script coverage at a legit Hollywood company.
So I’m just shocked that people this unqualified are actually relied upon to vet material.
Shocked...but not surprised!
