CELL - The movie. 6.13.2007

Thanks for checking out my Blog for CELL!

Here I plan to give weekly updates as to my experience in producing a low-budget, future fiction, psychological-thriller full-length movie.

Why use the term "movie" instead of "film"? Well, IMO there's a big difference between the two.

A film is determined by quality of entertainment and experience, something which lives up to my definition of art - That which educates while it... A work of love that strives for more than mere crass commercialism.

A movie can also have all those qualities, but (again IMO) it's distinguished from a film by the fact that people actually pay to watch it.

Therefore, I'm making a *movie*: Which means that in addition to the tremendous amount of work that goes into producing something good enough so that people are willing to pay to watch it, I also get to do all the work that is involved in producing a marketing strategy to insure distribution.

And yes, just like the hot Cylon babes from Battlestar Galactica, I too, have a plan.

In fact, I have a plan A, B and C.

But more on that later - Right now I have to start roughing out a production schedule and a to-do/needs list.

More to come! Next entry will have my picks from the 4000+ pages of independent film production and distribution books I've read in the past few months.

Kick Ass Take Names,
