Women's Studies
« on: November 30, 2005, 09:50:37 PM »
I've officially been in pre-production on my next film project for the past six weeks. However, there have been some milestones recently that bear bringing some light on the project. I finsihed the first draft of the feature length script last week, which allows me and my production team to start some basic work.

Women's Studies is the story of a pregnant grad student and her friends are held captive in a women’s academy that’s actually a cult of psychotic feminists bent on enslaving and/or murdering men. These cult-feminists indoctrinate college age girls under their dogma then send them out into the world to take high powered jobs from men, run for public office, and take away men’s social power. They’re also ordered to seduce men with high intelligence or stamina in order to create a “pure Goddess race.” After said seduction, the men are murdered. Women who resist them are also murdered. The pregnant grad student, after refusing to join their sect, must try to escape from the academy.

I've jokingly refered to it as "Attack of the Killer Feminists."

We've got a teaser website up:

Over the next few months we'll be prepping materials in order to seek out investors. It should be an interesting time, and hopefully worthwhile.

So, if you happen to know any rich people who have always wanted to finance a film . . .

Sounds great!
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Good work there, RC.  Everyone needs to become a Lady Killer!  We can group together and drink on the set and cause trouble.  20 bucks is the min amount, so it's not like it's painful.  I'll spend 20 bucks Friday for lunch.  God, I hate working at Union Station.

Gah! No time to breathe. And once this week is over, my life will be filled with crickets and drunken lunches with Nacho.

So, since I'm not ass tired from set building, I can say it with more gusto:

The Women's Studies website has finally gone live! It's just a basic set-up at this point because we have the big Baltimore screening for which I sent out an invite to every lawyer and plastic surgeon(!) in the city. If any potential investors show up, they'll be able to head to the site afterwards and have basic information at their fingertips.

The poster is ready, but it's not on the site yet, er, because.

Still, to me the website launch is a milestone, because it means we've finally solidified our business structure to the point where we feel comfortable going public with our efforts to raise budget, hire crew and cast, and for all intents and purposes get the production rolling.

I've got a couple other possible surprises brewing, but "negotiations are still on-going." (I never thought I'd be one of those assholes who said shit like that. If I become a jaded, cynical, elitist dickhead who thinks being out of touch is a good thing, you have permission to hunt me down and blow my head off with a rocket launcher.)

Anyway, stay tuned. It's going to be an interesting summer.

I see you went with Cassander's tagline -- http://www.greatsociety.org/forums/index.php?topic=1270.msg17206#msg17206

Very nice touch.

I'd still like an actress, whether you use one of mine or not. =)

Membership has it's privileges. You'll get all the groovy invites. You'll get a chance to be in the film.  You'll be the first to know all the inside scoop, and trust me we've got some big news brewing.  Ask Nacho.

How does Nacho know? He's a Lady Killer!

My 20 bucks bought me lots of very exciting secret knowledge.  And it might even bring me closer to the woman of my dreams, as well!

Woman of your dreams, Nacho? That wouldn't be someone famous, would it?

Become a Lady Killer folks. Big things are happening soon. You want to stay on top of it, right?

i want to see a script first.

actually, i've been meaning to do this, but right now i don't have a credit card.  I had to cancel it after losing it at a strip club mumble.  So when i get my new one my hard-earned paypal dollars are all yours.

I've been meaning to get around to it once I can stop having to ration my food because I don't get paid for another two weeks and then I get to pull the Cass deal with the rent: Two months rent and security deposit, all on the same week! Yay!

But there's $20 coming your way, soon.

Really? Me too!
[/suicide]

I'm currently in the middle of the third draft of the feature script, which is the fourth overall draft if you count the thirty page treatment I did back when dinosaurs walked the earth.

In addition we're holding a second round of auditions this coming weekend. There's another set of call backs on August 12, and we'll probably cast a few roles from there.  We've already seen a ton of good actors, so I'm excited.

By the end of August, I should have a pretty awesome promo piece go live on the website, our first video "production diary" so to speak.

There's tons going on behind the scenes right now, but most of it is business oriented. Starting up an actual film company (especially one still raising money) is probably as much work as . . . Oh I don't know, starting up a publishing company!

i'm going to start my own record label, then we can have all the bases covered, merge into a giant money pit/good ol' boy network/indie powerhouse.  We'll each have huge offices on separate floors and send our secretaries jogging back and forth with meaningless notes.
