Make all of the decisions, be realistic.
What studio would you work with or would you go indie?
Who would you want to produce it?
What amount of money would you hope for (at least)?
Would it be an original story or an adaptation? Who would write it? If adapted, from what?
Who would your cinematographer be?
Who would compose your score?
Who would do any other techs that I left out?
Who would you want to star and in what kind of roles would they be cast?
What directions would you give the actors? How would you tell them to play their roles?
If necessary, how would you direct a child actor or child actors?
When would you want the movie released?
Who would you want to distribute it?
What would you HOPE the critics would say?
What would the themes be?
I’d want to direct AND star in it, because my ego is so fucking big. Oh wait–that’s Ben Affleck.
Apparently Ben thinks he’s fucking Orson Welles.
I wasnt going to play, but what the heck. I change my mind.
Producer: BILL GATES
Money hoped for? You mean , to make the film? What Bill spends on propaganda, falsifying ‘studies’, etc. That’s what I’d want. I could film on the moon then.
It would be an original story, but it aint original folks
I’d ask Roger Deakins or Emmanuel Lubezki.
I wouldnt cast any stars. But I’d have lots and lots of interviews with competent, honest, brave people with a conscience. I’d have The Toxic Avenger in a cameo though.
Distributor? One which has balls and is immune to threats, intimidation, and with little concern for huge box office, since this film of mine wouldnt cost much, except looking over my shoulder now and then.
I dont give a shit about what the critics say.
The theme? I’d reassure Bill that I buy into every single repellent thing he does, and would tell him I’m making a stroking documentary extolling his virtues. Then, I’d stab him in the back and tell the truth.
How’s that? Then there’s the fantasy/scifi I’d love to make……
