How to Make Money Making Movies.

I'm gonna call them "Chance's Rules" after Chance Shirley. And I'm going to list them like this:

1. Shoot on 35mm
2. Hire "Name" talent (of the B-list variety)
3. Blood, boobies, BANG!

(Waterhouse, Pandora, oops I mean "Psyche" opening box)

We are not going to kid you. Making money making movies is hard work and it doesn't come easy. This is the real deal: if you want to make a living from movies if not to be rich, you have to think business. Think about what the audience wants to see.

Thanks for not kidding me. ;-)

Our interest is not actually what the audience wants to see, it's what the buyers want to see.

Our customers are not the consumers.

And besides, most of our income is from overseas and it's virtually impossible for us to know what the (say) Japanese audience wants. But we have a vague idea of what the Japanese buyer wants and that's what matters most! ;-)
