Hi there I'm wondering how much weight will you give to the film making experience of the director? For example, if it's a kick arse synopsis and poster would that count for more than a sweet showreel? Or not...
What have you learned from running the first Make My Movie competition that will inform your decision making this time around? Is there more focus simple ideas vs realistically ambitious ones? Or are you more optimistic about what can be achieved with the $200K budget?
HOw do you get inspired to make yet another indie film that will get lost in the vortex of similar films. There is something missing from these films. thy lack soul. Slickness and over studied color design and endless films made with scope cinematography to try and pass it off as a real film. They all become one continuous movie that is there for what reason? what are you trying to get across with your movie. What is it saying. why does it exist? Does it exist outside of a hopeful calling card?
What's the cost of a 'low budget' film these days? What should I expect as my likely investment cost? Note - my skills are limited so I won't be able to do as much as Aaron and Justin could do for themselves.
I would like to make a horror like the NZ classics- The Locals, Grampire, Truth about Demons. If I was to seal the rights- would I be able to direct a sequel to one of these movies? But-- it will be original and unique as I will ignore the first film altogether.
Given that Asylum use - 10 day scripts, 2 week shoots, budgets in the order of a couple of hundred thousand dollars, and most importantly, claim never to have lost money on a production, how does the MMHM team feel about projects aimed squarely into mock buster horror territory?
I'm a woman and I love horror. But I don't think they should make them for females; just make good horrors full stop that gets people excited... and woman should stop thinking all we can do is rom coms ;)
i want to make a Friendster killer movie. he is lost int he internet. has been for years- planning his moves. Now he is in a wasteland with nobody to kill. Will he upgrad to MySpace, or dare I say facebook. This si the tension we create! Like? Its snuff btw
What other material should I start thinking about if I am to make the top 12? Do I need to have a beat sheet? What are you expecting? I assume you want the paperwork pretty quickly yeah? Break it down!
