Tarantino began to writing screen plays completing his first one, True Romance, in 1987. He did this with a help from his co-worker Roger Avary who later became a director. He, for the first time, asked for financing so that he would film his script. This was not possible and he thought of selling the script to Tony Scott. Financial support was hard at that time for him. He wrote another script, this time Natural Black Killers which he also sold to Rand Vossler.
The little amount that he earned for True Romance was invested in a pre-production of his third Script of Reservoir Dogs. He received a financial support from Live Entertainment. This was after Harvey Keitel decided to star in his movie. Upon the release of this movie, there were some people who wanted him out of the film industry. They said that he emulated City on Fire, a Hong Kong thriller. This, instead of discouraging him motivated him. He wrote and directed another film this time, Pulp Fiction. This was meant to prove his rivals wrong. In addition to that, he was able to release other two films that year.
