But he'd never tell us that story.


Speaking of which, I could see a passenger committing seppuku sitting next to me on a plane talking about Pennywise and Jason for the duration.

Aren't the first two movies about Jason's origin.

From 1980 and 1981. They want to keep the cycle going with a fresh start with the exception of Derek Mears coming back as adult Jason. I've talked to Brad Fuller a few times and he doesn't like Damien Shannon's scripts (they've provided, FvJ, F13 2009) - says he revisits doing a new one every year but they never get past development hell.

Joker Origins would be a good benchmark. My concept revolves around the past with Jason's father Elias, abusive relationship with Pamela. Just a full dive into the backstory which will lead to the re-entry of the series as something you can put out every few years knowing it will cash in. I want to combine all elements from 1-4, no zombie bullshit.

If Jason isn't there, in full gear, slashing peeps, I think people will feel analy raped though.

You could start Jason out as a IT guy who follows the Habs and has a Japanese knife collection. He gets his first taste for blood by killing a rodent in his basement with a broken beer bottle...

Jason X already accomplished that. As did Jason Goes to Hell. He will be there with a new twist on the hockey mask. It's about producing a delicate balance of bringing new fans into the fold (for $$$$) while keeping the older fans happy as well. I believe a dark origins story culminating with Jason as an adult would accomplish that. Whether that route is flashbacks or some type of story telling, it can be accomplished. Its not difficult, and I think even connecting Macbeth with Fuller and New Line could get him another foot in the door for other projects. The Jason stuff is just easy money all around but they want it to look like its dedicated to the fans.

Do we have any posters from Kanata? The cost I know of is Murphy, and he's not that close. I don't know where most of the sens broads live though.

Hey, is that actually true though? I feel like lots of made in Canada TV is very white. Like that East coast detective show and that back in time detective show are both pretty pale.

It seems you either gotta go all-white, or all something else like they do in that convenience store one or the mosque one.

You are confusing Téléfilm Canada, which "invests" money in films and movies, and canadian television, which is... well, yeah, it is what it is, I guess.

Take Dogo's movie for example. There are usually five slots per calendar year for smaller budgeted films (there is a shit tonne more money that goes directly into the pockets of big time, "sucessful" producers, on a points-per-film basis which is verrrry scientific). We had to fight and qualify for one of these spots.

But the "fight" is rigged (A RIGGED WITCH HUNT).

There are two slots for anglo films (you lot have a lot of trouble making movies apparently......); one is womens only, the other could go either way depending on the year and projects submitted.

Two others are for the minorities and or womens only, with emphasis on and bias for indigenous projects/teams/subjects/etc..

And the last one is for the french speaking (preferably) mens who thinks he can make him some arts.

We ended up getting it, which means we are the only french speaking, mens-helmed project financed on the indie ("smaller budgeted projects, 2,5M$ and under) side for Téléfilm this year.

We were told in no uncertain terms that if we wanted to finance the Dogo's film in 2018 (or even if we wished to have a snowball's chance in Bikor's asshole), we'd have to budget the film at or under 2,5M$.

Which we did...

So yeah, it is actually true.

But it's fine.

As long as the fart material is sharp, we're gonna roll. :trump:

Perhaps the other groups have an easier time of making their budgets because they use women and minorities.

It seems you either gotta go all-white, or all something else like they do in that convenience store one or the mosque one.

You are confusing Téléfilm Canada, which "invests" money in films and movies, and canadian television, which is... well, yeah, it is what it is, I guess.

Take Dogo's movie for example. There are usually five slots per calendar year for smaller budgeted films (there is a shit tonne more money that goes directly into the pockets of big time, "sucessful" producers, on a points-per-film basis which is verrrry scientific). We had to fight and qualify for one of these spots.

But the "fight" is rigged (A RIGGED WITCH HUNT).

There are two slots for anglo films (you lot have a lot of trouble making movies apparently......); one is womens only, the other could go either way depending on the year and projects submitted.

Two others are for the minorities and or womens only, with emphasis on and bias for indigenous projects/teams/subjects/etc..

And the last one is for the french speaking (preferably) mens who thinks he can make him some arts.

We ended up getting it, which means we are the only french speaking, mens-helmed project financed on the indie ("smaller budgeted projects, 2,5M$ and under) side for Téléfilm this year.

We were told in no uncertain terms that if we wanted to finance the Dogo's film in 2018 (or even if we wished to have a snowball's chance in Bikor's asshole), we'd have to budget the film at or under 2,5M$.

Which we did...

So yeah, it is actually true.

But it's fine.

As long as the fart material is sharp, we're gonna roll. :trump:


Wow, 2.5? I wish you luck with that one. Takes a ton of creativity to make something happen. Lots of people don't understand even getting lighting and a camera on set is half that sometimes. I remember one small CGI cut a friend of mine did cost $250,000! I feel bad for the everyday workers in the business because that's who piracy fucks over. A fart FX might cost ya too. :why:

Are wominz and minorities underrepresented (comoared to their demographic weight) in the film making market?

If so, why? Is it “good” to move forward with a male dominated voice or should other actions be taken? If so, which? If the “problem” is structural, how do you fix it?

Yada yada, that sorta thing.

I would say absolutely not anymore. In the past maybe but if you're speaking strictly about demographic ratios, no way are they underrepresented - soon us crackers will be the minority.

It could be the result of fervent activism but in all spheres of entertainment, muslims, african-americans, chinese, latinos, are making huge strides.

The Japanese get demonized because of China's grip on Hollywood. :colbert:
