Risks and challenges

It's a tough proposition to make a real feature film these days. The market for all forms of media continues to ride in a state of major transition, and it's kept me back for a long while because I wasn't sure what was going on, but I'm done waiting for things to settle down, and am ready to start to do this. I know that no matter what happens with the changes in technology and distribution systems, people will still want to watch great movies when the dust settles. I have some pretty good contacts in the film business, and I'm ready to bring them something they can push. Making the movie is easy once we have financing and distribution locked down.

I wasn't sure about giving out this much information about one of my ideas for a movie in public, but I don't see any other way these projects are going to start to get made (this is one of six favorite movie ideas I've been kicking around for a number of years), and I figure for every secret I'm revealing here, I still have dozens more to put in the actual movie. It's not just the ingredients anyway, it's how you put them together that counts.

I've wanted to make movies since I was barely 3 years old, watching my father mess around with Super-8 home movies, and sitting on Mama's lap in a dark theater at Fort Benning to see "E.T." ... I'm told I kept leaning forward as if I wanted to be inside the movie, and I talked about it so much afterwards they took me back to see it three more times. I love cinema and filmmaking and big stories. I was born to be creative, I was taught to be precise, and I've learned to power on through. Let's sell some popcorn.
