Make A MovieMay 08, 2017 no comments
We’re making a movie!
“How can I help?” you scream enthusiastically, ripping out your credit card.
Whoa, wait a second, we reply (pocketing your card for later). At least let us tell you about the movie first!
It’s called THE THREAT OF SEX. It’s set in and around a feminist organization, and it’s a delightfully quirky comedy about equality, bank robbery, and the perils of workplace dating. Imagine it as a giddy 90-minute ride alongside bickering criminals, hapless cops, handcuffed coworkers, and a live jaguar, with a few random acts of feminine terrorism thrown in to keep it interesting.
Despite the title, this is the rare movie you’ll be able to watch with your grandma or teenage children without cringing. Why? Because we take the best part of the past and the greatest part of the future to turn out a romantic comedy that’s lightning-fast, full of whip-smart dialogue, and focused on the search for love over sex.
We want to make a movie for you with such heart, class, and incandescent beauty that it looks like it was made for millions.
Hard part is, we don’t have millions. We’re just a tiny little start-up, and like most start-ups, we’re running on dream fumes.
Dream fumes have gotten us a terrific script, a brilliant cinematographer, amazing actors, and some glorious promotional footage. But dreams won’t pay for location permits, sound equipment, or jaguar kibble.
Which is why we want you to be our movie mogul.
“Me?” you say. “But I’m no Louis B. Mayer. How could I be a movie mogul?”
We’re glad you asked.
It’s easy, it only takes 5 bucks, and you’ll be a mogul — because you’ll have given us the green light to begin production.
Take a small leap of faith with us and buy a $5 advance ticket to the movie we’ll make together. Once we rack up enough $5 ticket sales, we’ll have enough cash to cover the costs of bringing this movie to life. $5 here, $5 there, $5 from everywhere, and voila! A fully-funded movie.
Look around at our site. (You might as well since you’re already here.) Watch some of our teasers. Can you guess what our budget was? It was ZERO. Now imagine what we could do with a little push from you!
Buy a ticket and you’ll not only get to see this movie, you’ll forever know you made this movie!
Be a mogul. Make a movie.
