"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Selling Points

I'm glad you believe it to be a solid screenplay, but will anybody else?

 Again, film makers, it's a BUSINESS. You want actors to work for you? Don't tell them you're not going to have enough crew to run a production smoothly, and that those who want your art to be a commercial success so you can pay back your investors, and (gasp!) make money (as all BUSINESSES are wont to do) are evil, vain, and self-serving. It's the Producer's JOB to make sure the project will make money!

Good luck with your project. 

(8 Roles)
Non-Union Feature Film
Low-budget non-union feature horror film

NOTE: This project, a labor of love; though being done low budget is envisioned by a film-maker who is keen on making this a cult classic- secured by a foundation structured with what we believe to be a solid screenplay and a true to the film-maker's vision execution thereof. The film-maker is not beholding to any other interests- such as producers to infringe on creativity- other than the story itself.

Film-maker intends to put together the very best available skeleton crew made up of a unique group of the very best visionaries who have art and fair expression in their heart rather than only the monetary and vanity in their quests.

  1. This is pretty common manipulation in this business - if you ask for any sort of compensation and deign to believe that your work deserves credit, recognition, and should help you pay the bills, then you are evil! And a sellout! And you're just here to be a star, you pathetic douche! We're artists, we can't be bothered with things like MONEY.

    I hate this crap. You get what you pay for. You want the very best available, the very best visionaries? Then pay them for their time.


Play nice.
