story board whut?

June 17, 2015


I am always seeing these crazy story boards posted online by writers. They are very ordered and very detailed and very complex and to me look like time outlines for a NASA space mission or a chores list put up for a military camp.

Here is one of those crazy story boards:

Here is my story board:


I guess my story board should be embarrassed by the bigger more glamorous story boards but it isn’t. My story board says, Fuck off, it doesn’t do manual labor.

Hmm. So Geoff Latulippe just said

“Ugh, Max.

“Your reputation is well known to those in the film business. As a cautionary tale. I needn’t document it here, but suffice to say I can’t imagine a legit industry professional would vouch for you at this point.”




This is a response to a post in which I told Geoff lambasting anyone who is a teacher, mentor, or consultant, is wrong.


He was attacking Jeanne in that post. Sigh. Now he’s attacking me for responding with credits.

It would actually be interesting if Geoff did “document” my alleged cautionary tale, since then I’d know what I’m getting hit for this time. The gossip internet tabloids about me are always interesting. But —


If I have ever impacted your writing career in a positive way, as writer, teacher, mentor, consultant, author —

Go tell Geoff about it.

Geoff seems to think I’m a terrible person and a horrible teacher and mentor.

According to him, everyone else in Hollywood thinks so too.

Fuck I had better call my agent. What if he has heard this Geoff news?  Jesus!


*Not to be bitchy about it, (okay actually I am being a total bitch about it, and on purpose too, fuck you!, whoops!). My biggest detractors in “the film biz” are usually men I wouldn’t have sex with.
