Introducing Yenta

You moved to Hollywood to make movies (or if that didn't work, you'd go slumming and do TV). So far, nothing has happened and instead you're fetching coffee for some prick with a Napoleon complex and a mistress. Then you go home, drink and wonder whether you'll ever use anything you learned in Film Production 301. As always, I'm here to help.

Today marks the official launch of Yenta (, a matchmaking site for aspiring Hollywood types (producers, actors, writers, etc.) This site hooks up people who want to make films, TV or web series but don't have all the pieces in place to get started.

For example, if you have script, but need actors or a director to bring it to life, post a request under "I NEED...". Or if you're an editor looking for a project, post a request under "I CAN..."

All you need to do is s
end me an email at and explain:

1 - What you need/can do.
2 - Whether or not you can pay/will work for free.
3 - The best way for someone interested to reach you.

Why not spend your spare time working with people like you and make actual product? Maybe you'll get discovered. Maybe you won't. Either way, it's better than sitting home watching the People's Court.

[Note: I know nothing about matchmaking, the web or Hollywood. So if you have any ideas about how to improve Yenta, drop me a line. Oh, and I'll leave your posting up for a month unless you tell me to take it down sooner.]
