Who knows if anyone would actually buy it. The biggest hurdle I think is just finding someone who would let me direct it, then cast the actors that I really want, assuming they'd work for almost nothing and for a director that, to this day, has only watched movies, not made one.
If I finish the script and after a year it gets no action, I'll just make it myself. If I can find a couple of volunteer college actors I'll spend a couple of grand and just do it. I've already got Avid at home to edit, I have some basic lights, so all I really need is a better video camera and a good shot gun mic (and a fishpole).
I hesitate to share what the basic plot is because I think it's a better sell when it's done. It's loosely based on my life but not really. If I were to re-do my life in a manner that would make a good movie, this is how it would be.
This really feels like something I want to do. That's good, because the last few days, I haven't wanted to do much of anything. How can a job where you have nothing to do cause you to be so drained?
I'm studying up on how to format a screenplay. Can't wait to start writing.
