Man, this is a pretty lousy marketing effort. I've zero motivation to click on the link.

Watch out Guerilla, babyshoes will successfully fund and come back to rub it in your face with insane amounts of fury and slander.

Typical crowdfunding problems. The rewards are so UNREWARDING.

at $15 you get a personal email from the director. who would care about this unless it was Steven Spielberg?

at $20 you get a signed poster from the cast/crew (signed by unknown names, yet again)

at $25 a page of the screenplay.... (sign ME up!)

at $50 a copy of the screenplay (which was already available at $10) and a personal letter from the same unknown director! (how this is different than an email I have no idea)

at $100 a special invitation to go watch the movie in the place it was made! (Be still my beating heart)

at $250... literally nothing different than what you've already received.



and so on and so on as the pledge is raised

People really need to do more research on successful crowdfunding techniques before they up and launch them

He/she may have a better chance of doing that than you getting a shot at directing a big budget feature with your FULL SAIL degree.

Baby shoes, The film is about someone's true life. Did you get the rights to it? If you don't and it's a great film, no one will touch it...

The day someone looks at me and says "Oh you have a degree in film? Sorry, I only hire people with no film training." I'll give you a thousand dollars.

Whoa! You expect to be HIRED to direct a film? :lol:

Most everyone here eventually come to realize that the only feature film they're going to direct is the one they produce. If they're smart, they don't have all their money tied up in school debt.

I agree with this. A bigshot director wouldn't waste his time writing condescending comments to a bunch of amateurs on a mildly popular filmmaking forum.

Then your point is mute? I have no intentions of directing a big budget feature that I'd also produce? I only produce and direct my own low budget material.

My original comment also said nothing about getting hired to direct. I'm a Colorist. On set I only apply to do Grip & Electric work. Seldomly people ask me to Direct or DP on their indie stuff, I do it. I've never applied to direct anything.

Also... as I've told you many times before, I have no student debt. Add that to the fact I'm from a blue collar family... I have the ability to make a big budget feature and direct it myself if I wanted, but again, I have no interest in that.

I'm confused by this statement completely. I don't think anyone here has ever claimed to be a bigshot director? As for writing condescending comments... the only condescending comments I see in this threads are those by GuerrillaAngel towards me.
