Now Playing: Long Time no Speak
I was sitting watching "Be Cool" the other day, an awesomely underrrated flick. As the credits rolled, I was surprised to see the screenwriter was Peter Steinfeld. Now, I'd known Pete had also written "Drowning Mona" a little quirky film I wasn't especially fond of, but this was a big budget sequel! And I liked it!! You see, Pete was my customer service rep back when I worked for ETD as a video tape distributor, back in the mid 90's. Pete would take my orders and make sure all went right with my customers and I was very disappointed the day he left to try to become a screenwriter. HE FUCKING DID IT!!
I got ahold of him and today we spoke at legnth..how he made it, family, etc. The things you talk about with long lost friends. But I kept thinking..I'm talking to a real screenwriter..he made the dream come true. Just shows you that paying your dues, doing the little things and just plain trying really work.
Go out and rent "Be Cool" or "Analyze That" or "Drowning Mona" and give it up for the writer who made it.
