    >>I have a day job, and I use my personal cash from that job to fund my films. He's the perspective point: Would you do your job if you weren't getting paid?

    misc Previous Crew Member Causing Issues

    If you really thought he'd turn up at a shoot, at most I'd attach a line or two to the next call sheet with a friendly warning about Bill. Note to you: Stop letting him live rent free in your head. Let you actual image speak for itself. Don't worry about what others say/do. It'll drive you...

    >>How is not a tech play? Or what is your vision of a tech play? >>Its both, a new distribution play that leverages technology. The model is like Airbnb in how we don't use theater, and have created a gig-economy for film screenings. Usually when the founder says its a distribution play...

    service Feedback On Device For Cinematic Distribution

    actors Have you ever watched any movie with a really sexy character?

    I don't think the world doesn't work that way. Like the saying, different strokes for different folks. You can thank your maker that what works for me probably won't work for you.
