Unsolicited Submissions


It is 5 Star Barbarians, LLC’s policy not to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of any future misunderstandings if your ideas are similar to those we or our associates have in development now, or have developed independently. You may be surprised how often this can happen! Therefore, we must regretfully request that you do not send us any creative materials such as stories, character ideas, treatments, screenplays, or books (“Unsolicited Submissions”). We will not take phone calls or answer emails from writers directly if we have no formal or contractual relationship with the writer. This means we won’t talk to writers we don’t know.


  1. If you submit any Unsolicited Submissions of any kind to 5 Star Barbarians, LLC via email, facsimile, mail or otherwise, they will be treated as non-confidential and shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of 5 Star Barbarians, LLC.
  2. Without limitation of the foregoing, 5 Star Barbarians, LLC shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing rights to the Unsolicited Submissions of every kind and nature, in perpetuity, throughout the universe; and 5 Star Barbarians, LLC shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Unsolicited Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation, credit, or any other rights to the provider of the Unsolicited Submissions.
  3. If applicable law restricts or limits the foregoing provisions of this paragraph, you agree, without limitation of the foregoing, that in no event shall 5 Star Barbarians, LLC’s liability with respect to the Unsolicited Submissions exceed the minimum amount payable for the writing of equivalent material under the Writers Guild of America Minimum Basic Agreement then in effect.
  4. Any controversy or claim arising out of our receipt of Unsolicited Submissions will be settled by arbitration in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, before a single arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association. The prevailing party in any such arbitration has the right to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs from the other party.


Dealings with Ed Kramer 

Recently, it has come to the attention of 5 Star Barbarians, LLC that Edward Kramer is currently involved in ongoing legal issues.

Although some of the associate producers had small roles in the filming of Brothers Barbarian, Mr. Kramer’s only involvement was of a financial nature. Once we became aware of these issues, 5 Star Barbarians, LLC took immediate action to remove Mr. Kramer’s financial contribution by refunding his money. Mr. Kramer’s credit has been removed from Brothers Barbarian and all associated websites.

Thank you for supporting Brothers Barbarian.
