Hi I would be grateful for any input from your two cents, “Yea or Nay” about rarely used term “Smooze”. Ive a Vintage Noir cross platform/short film in post production. I named it The Smooze as a play on words on purpose, meaning something bad is going down. (Urban dictionary “Duck and dive, run and hide etc) Yet I’ve had problems folks telling me it is spelled “Schmooze” but no, its not about characters engaging conversation for their own gain. Ive so far stuck to my guns, to imply a lurking shadow, not a crooners/liars conversation with someone ending up a schmuck. Yet I often get patronised at meetings “Don’t you mean Schmooze”? The purposely used “Smooze” has not stopped project gaining funding so far but I was wondering just how many people think I cannot spell and dare not tell me face to face. Have any of yourselves used unconventional spellings for your work? Did you get negative feedback? Thanks.
