POLIWOOD: How do you get a movie made?

Lionel Chetwynd and I shift gears a bit with the new POLIWOOD and take on the nuts-and-bolts problem of “How do you get a movie made?” We also touch on whether it really is more difficult for conservatives (marginally, but don’t dwell on it).

It goes without saying that getting a film made is an arduous task and takes passionate devotion, no matter who you are. And there are no easy tricks. Those of us who are interested in mostly making our own movies have to bring together a “package” of script, director and actor before trying to get the financing. The actor is the most important part, but, for the most part, well-known actors will not read your script without an offer on the table. Catch-22. More of this – and a possible break in this trend – on the video.

Other POLIWOODs here, some now with subscription only. That subscription (cheap now at $5/mo., $3 student) entitles you to the growing archive of all PJTV shows and supports our project. Thanks.
