Woke up about 4:00 am and couldn't get back to sleep so I drilled through the movie channels and found one that was just starting. "Death Do Us Part"
I would have been better off watching c-span. This thing had such a weak story line, characters, scenes and pretty much everything. A pair of tits would have doubled the rating for me but no. Not even that.
questions: how do movies like this get funded?
How do they hope to recover the cost and make money? I really would like to know. I'm not just picking on this movie but it happens almost every time I decide to watch a movie I never heard of.

Maybe we should start a thread on movies you watched that you never heard of but really liked. I would have to really think about it to make even a short list.

Movies get funded like everything else gets funded: family, friends, investors, production companies, charities, governments, etc. And just like everything else they hope to get refunded by having a successful product (hence why you see so much of the same shit getting remade vs new material as it's already provides a proven value).

As far as "movies like this" comment, I haven't seen the film, but I'm sure it alludes to the film being pretty shitty and the most simple answer I can give you is that doing a movie is similar to starting a team (motocross, cars, football, etc). There are a shit load of working parts, a shit ton of people involved, and while certain riders on the bike (or actors, writers, producers, directors, etc. attached to the film) make your chance of winning a championship better it doesn't guarantee shit.

At the end of the day if everything doesn't line up across all aspects perfectly you're going to take a very expensive hit.

I've got 2 movies in my head to do ...
One is a father-son moto story ... gripping

The other is a racer dealing with raising money to pursue his dreams in moto ... hard core reality

Anyone have about 2.5mil for each and they'll get done.

Going to have to find a way to get it done for a lot less than that, haha.

I've got one for a moto film that I've been sitting on for a while but I've been too busy with other projects. Could probably get mind done for around $30k.

That's why you stick to porn. Easy and fun to make. Cheap. And can make you a ton of money. My wife's best friend runs her own private cam site where all she does is pee on match box cars. Super niche. But she's pulling in over 10k a month in subscriptions. Seems crazy I know.

Lol I knew it looked different than a VHS tape but had no clue what it was so went with VHS. Is that tape from one of those old school bazooka size camcorder?

Cam girls make a killing. If you're good looking enough and have a personality you'll find an audience. Some of them just sit there and talk with the viewers and still make a shit ton of cash.

It's no wonder there's so many of them out there. Couple hours a night and you can pull in anything from a few hundreds to a couple grand.

No. Those are actually pretty small. About the same size as a deck of cards.

Im having a hard time breaking in to that part of the industry. Maybe it's the Hot Wheels holding me back and the Matchbox's are where it's at?

Judging by the size of the tape it still has to be pretty big in order to fit in it.

How do you even watch those tapes? I know VHS tapes go in a VCR but what about those. Special type of machine or cable plugged into the VCR/TV from the camcorder.

Glad technology has made advancements. So much easier to do anything.

Was born and raised into it, and have worked as a union Assistant Editor/Editor for 26 years (Avidchimp, get it?), and Wombat summed it up pretty well.

You need four key things to come together for something to be good, Writing, Directing, Acting, and Editing. You can get around bad directing (google the shit show Tombstone was before it was reworked) but if the other three suck, you're sunk.

In the age of social media, I would even throw in marketing as well.

You're a guy of course it's going to be difficult to break into that business. A lot more guys watching women than women watching men. That's a fact.

On the other hand you might have to stick those matchbox cars where the sun don't shine? Might want to try that lol. I'm sure some old geezer somewhere in the world will be into that.

As they say there's something for everyone.

If it's your mug keeping the viewers away just keep it out of the frame and build the suspense. That shit works for girls. If it's your dingaling well you're SOL or I suppose there's always those magical pills they advertise late at night lol.

Bro, Vivid Ent. is a mile from my house, and I make it a point to stop by and "audition" as often as I can. Still haven't been hired yet.

You gotta make the switch to Matchbox's too. Like GREEN said, who knew?

What's the audition process for guys? In order to audition don't they have to call you in the first place?

Ha, you'd be surprised. Not too many men get hired for a legit porn shoot. 95% of what you see online is just a group of guys with some money and a camera who hire porn stars to make films with them.

Is that old guy Ron Jeremy still at it? If not pretty sure he was the only one sporting that look. Maybe it's time for you to gain weight and be greasy looking in order to get his gig.

Careful, by mentioning Ron, you might get this thread moved to moto related (frezno smooth (.

I tried to get one at least started a few years back but couldn't get everyone to commit their time. It was going to be fun to shoot. I even had inside folks who worked at the sheriff's dept that I know would be involved. Damn I should try to set something up again...

As long as you go by Awesome Johnson !

I did find a playable dvd copy of the TV show with you and your brother the other day. I just need to copy it and my burner tower is on the fritz. Funny seeing it again 11 years later. laughing
