Rejected Pitches: Back to the Future

Don't you hate it when you let someone read your script and they just don't get it? 

You're not alone. The fact is, the vast majority of movie pitches are rejected. Even movies that we know and love were most likely rejected at some point, too. 

Here is a webseries about the movie executives who rejected those pitches. In this episode they decide that a movie about a teenager who travels back in time and becomes romantically involved with his mother could never be a hit comedy.

Written and produced by Dan Klein, directed by Greg Stees, and starring Dan Klein, Kelly Hudson, and Ben Rameaka. Featuring Adam Bozarth as Robert Zemeckis.

This short is a marvellous indictment of critics and critiquers and group think. Henry, since I know you have had at least one similar experience, I feel for you. Clearly it is a common pain felt by scriptwriters, when do-nothings with no imagination have control of funding.
