I haven't mentioned this before, even to people I know. For the longest time I've always wanted to produce or direct a movie. Or be a screenwriter. Not having connections I need and not having the finances for it(making movies doesn't come cheap folks), one has to be creative. Due to my overnight shift my creativity for the most part has gone. Is in hibernation actually. No joke. I do my best writing after midnight. That is when I'm awake during the day and sleep through part of, if not the entire night, but the creative process has been on hold(not my choice)since working midnights(SERIOUSLY!). Trust me I've tried and after 2-years on this shift my creativity has come back though not to the same extent as before.

So then how can I make a movie? Or come up with an idea for a movie? Been racking my brain for a very, very long time. Have no idea how. But someone else did come up with what I believe is an excellent idea.

That someone is Casey Walker. He's a Director in Toronto who wants to make his first feature film. And that costs money as mentioned before so he came up with an idea. We, yes even YOU can have your name in the credits of a movie. If you pay $10(Canadian).

Instead of me copying practically every word click here to go to his site to see how this works or click here to go the FAQ page.

  1. Hi JBG, I'd love to hear how your experience of mymilliondollar movie is going. I've done a blog post analysing it, and there were a few things I was concerned about, so would be good to hear a "producer"'s experience.
    Thanks,
    Luci

  2. Hi Luci,

    First, my sincerest apologies for taking so long to reply as I was without a computer(no desktop and no laptop)and unable to get internet connection on my cellphone. That's why I haven't been on this site for so long.

    Second, sorry if I gave you the impression I'm a producer. That has been one of my lifelong dreams along with being a screenwriter as well(something I've wanted to do since childhood---even most people who know me would be surprised as I only mention an interest in newspaper writing to them), however, I am not a producer of mymilliondollarmovie.

    I just liked the idea when I read about it and why I link to the page advertising it. As for the issues, since I'm not involved other than just giving $10 to mymilliondollarmovie.com to see my name on screen as "producer" in the hopes that's going to help start this career path.

    So I'd be the wrong one to talk to on this topic(issues)as I don't want to mislead anyone and very likely won't have the answers you need. Really wish I could help.

    If you haven't yet, I'd suggest you go to my milliondollarmovie.com's site, on their contact page, here's the link, click here, and under "General message, questions and business inquiries" click on "INFO",or if you can't get to that page then I'd suggest you email the guy who thought up this mymilliondolarmovie idea, Casey Walker(email him at casey@mymilliondollarmovie.com).

    Hope you're able to find out what you need to know.

    Good luck with your writing career, from one struggling writer to another!
