My name is Jeremy Meyer and I am a lover of movies. I am an aspiring screenwriter, and as much as I love writing movies I love talking about them even more. I'm also an addict. My addiction? Podcasts. Podcasts have completely taken over my music device, so much so that I barely even listen to music anymore.
Now coming from a screenwriting perspective, my favorite part of a film is obviously the writing. I love to thumb through film scripts and compare them to the movie. What's even more interesting is that there are a plethora of movie scripts out there for movies that haven't even been made. Scripts that were commissioned by a studio but turned down for one reason or another. For example, Kevin Smith's Superman Lives script. Or even J.J. Abrhams Superman Flyby screenplay. Two different Superman movies that were considered before Superman Returns was made. If that doesn't interest you, what about the original draft of Prometheus that was a straight Alien prequel before all of the Aliens were pulled out of the movie. The original title was even Alien Engineers. If those don't interest you then maybe you can look up the Blacklist. A yearly list of popular un-produced screenplays. A list that The Wolf of Wall Street was once a part of before the film was finally made into the Oscar nominated film it is today.


I loved reading through these screenplays so much that I thought it would be fun to bring in a guest to discuss them with me. This is where my love of podcasting comes in. Now I could just tell my friends about these screenplays and have a fun conversation, but why not put these conversations out into the world. I can't be the only one interested in hows and whys of these un-produced screenplays. There are even documentaries on failed movie projects. The Death of Superman Lives and Jodorowsky's Dune. Wouldn't it be fun to read these scripts and discuss them? The choices made, what happened to the script, or even just what did we get instead. With this podcast that's what I'm aiming to do.

On the show we sometimes do commentary tracks for movies. For a while I've wanted to cover all of the DCEU films with the fellas over at the 616 Entertainment podcast. If you contribute at this level we will cover one of the DCEU films for each contribution. We will cover the films in order of release. Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, Justice League, and Aquaman. You will also get all of the rewards from the lower tiers!

My wife had never seen the original Star Wars movies until we sat down on the podcast and covered the original trilogy with commentary tracks. After we finished she showed an interest in seeing what the prequels were like. At this tier we will make it happen! For each contribution we will cover one of the Star Wars Prequels in order of release! This could be an interesting look into a non fans perspective on the movies that garner so much conversation. You will also get all of the rewards from the lower tiers!
