Motivated by a couple men in gorilla suits (AKA Christopher Gronlund and Shawn Kupfer), I decided to dig out my WIP for a mini movie about a work-at-home phone sex operator who gets a call from an ET.
I’ll give you a minute to let that sink in.
This is 1950’s monster movie camp meets 2010’s online democratized content. Now while I fully admit that this mini movie idea is awesome as vegan chocolate sauce, I also fully admit that I, as an artist, am only 1 person (2 if you count my impromptu amateur videographer husband), I have little movie-making know-how, and I don’t have access to a movie set. So, this is where you come in, brave, creative, online content democratization enthusiast! Wanna get in the spirit of artistic collaboration and contribute to a fun, freaky, sci fi mini movie?
Here’s how this will work:
1. Anybody (18+) can help do this! You may contribute, via email, as little or as much as you’d like to any of the following, provided the contribution is original, and follows the premise of the movie:
a. a written scene in the movie script
b. an actual filmed scene in the movie
c. film editing, special effects, graphics and titles
2. If you contribute useable content, your contribution – in full or in part – will end up in the movie.
3. If you contribute, you will be credited in the movie credits (unless you want to remain anonymous).
4. The movie, when complete, will be available for public viewing on youtube, and will be submitted to Stoneham Cinema.
5. There’s no monetary compensation for contributing, this is an amateur artistic collaboration, and an experiment in content democratization.
6. Production and final editing decisions are reserved for me. (Somebody’s gotta do it.)

So, now that your head is spinning, wanna contribute to a fun, goofy, non-professional, experimental, indie mini movie? (hint – “Heck, yeah!”) Email me for more details.
