When? First vote in the poll, then collect your money. At least I hope it works that way...

Of course, making my own movie. What else?
Why are we all here after all?
What connects us all? What made our life worth being enjoyed?
The movies...and we would all love to affect people's lives the same way than movies did... maybe there are selfish or greedy or narcissistic reasons behind, but I'm pretty sure a majority of us would love to make movies, if they had the money.

Lol, I'm not working on that screenplay, one I worked on is called "What would Michael Corleone do?" but I'm not sure it would work as a movie, better fit for the play format.

ElM: Michael Corleone sounds interesting!  ;)
MAthePA:  So funny - I've just been reading a book about how to write a screenplay!  I'm not really serious about it, I just find movie making techniques fascinating.  Honored that I'd be considered for scripts, lol!  :D
P.S. Put Ed on Marketing/Advertisement.  Dunno why, I just think he'd be good at that.  :)

Oh, and Dan could handle budget/finance.

So, the 6th sense served right for me:
NarniaisAwesome - screenplay.
Ed for Marketing/Advertisement? No way.
Ed - Sound Dpt. on all levels and phases ;)))

PS: do you expect Dan adding more to the albstein's promise and Peter's investment?

4.4K Messages

 • 

123.5K Points

Yeah, maybe sound for Ed; I just thought he could create some catching ads/ trailers.
Excuse my possible ignorance, but what do you mean by Dan 'adding more to alb's promise and Peter's investment?'  :)

BTW, even the best screenplays get altered by directors and producers, so EIM & Peter would have the final say.  :o

Why not. They may pay you more for each extra-line of edits, in progressive scale. Then they may need one more mln. from Dan, additionally to the promised by albstein and invested by Peter ;)))

Oh yes, but prior to reading that book I assumed the screenwriter had more power (and he does, if he's also the director or producer).
Oh, I think I see... :).... the question is, would Dan give more to albstein's art or Peter's producing?  I think Dan would find a way to give each dept the funds needed for their project, without leaving anyone 'high and dry.'  :)

Amending clause: since albstein has initially promised 1 mln., he needs to work as art director now to live no begging... Dan helped him when voting for film preservation, but it seems to be not enough to survive...

PS: look, it's a kind of plot to incorporate into the screenplay ;)

Haha!  I've heard of 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' or something like that, but I have never seen it nor do I know what it's about... would ELM's project be related (sequel, spoof, etc) or unrelated just a play on words?

1.8K Messages

it's all spoof, starting from the albstein's initial question, but still a good poll )) no poll to spoof, no spoof to poll...

Whoa, been away for a few days and now I got a new job. Elmo won't need to bother about the ending of his movie because his first set will collapse and bury everyone, lol.

Be sure to hand over the screenplay to rubyfruit for corrections, and DC can promote the movie in India (or anywhere, really) if he finds the time.

Actually, the "Michael Corleone" is meant as a remake of "Play it Again, Sam" not really a spoof but an adaptation with Corleone replacing Bogart, not sure it would go anywhere, better to write it as a homage or a very loose adaptation.

ElM., in case of success then please try Love and Death with Zhivago replacing Boris ;)

MAthePA: If Unbearable Heaviness is related to Unbearable Lightness, than I can't write because I have no idea what it is, lol!  However, I have another idea for the title that could be awesome...
albstein:  Elmo won't need to bother about the ending of his movie because his first set will collapse and bury everyone, lol. 
Made me laugh out loud.  (Not funny that we'd die, just a funny phrase)  You're too modest.
