So I'm heading up one of the teams for the international 48hrs comp. I was telling one of the board members about it and he offered to throw some money in and I got the idea to make this thread while chatting with that person. If you don't know what the comp is about ill explain to you. On July 27th at 6:45pm i stick my hand in a hat and pick my genre of film. At 7pm on the 27th I have to open an envelope that has my logline. Many years ago I did this and got "Sally goes to an antique shop and finds a watch that reminds her of her grandmother" I just have to use that idea. We ended up making a dark film about Sally having the watch and it reminds her of her grandmother sexually abusing her. Yeah I know its a dumb thing to do for a comp but we were in film school and wanted to make the whole film in one shot while showing the passage of time. We actually pulled it off but lost. I've learn for shit like this you have to be commerical, so I wont be doing any people raping other people.
I got my first sponsor today that is giving me 300 bucks, now I need about 1700 bucks more to feel comfortable without having to pull out the credit cards.
So for any board member that paypals me at least $25 dollars you will get a special thanks and a dvd. If you throw in at least $100 bucks you will get a title credit "bugonyourlips presents so and so film" and the dvd. Cool?? Great thanks in advance for all people willing to help out. To those that can't spare 25 bucks I understand.
