When you’re deep in crap…
….there’s often a chance that a great opportunity will show up. This is more or less what Napolean Hill wrote about 80 years ago. Yeah, more or less.
In the near future, for anyone who has produced some up to this point unmarketable piece of crap film that’s been sitting on a shelf in their garage, it seems that your ship may be about to come in.
Hopefully you won’t be sitting and waiting at the airport.
The reality is, there has been little or no feature film work for many of us on the crew side of things for most of the last year.
This is because the threat of a SAG strike since last June has made it almost impossible for studios or whoever wants to make a large budget feature to get a production bond, and without one of these it’s difficult to get insurance, which makes it near to impossible to get financing, even in a good economy. Which we don’t have. Not even close.
Which is nowhere in sight as of today.
So, once the pipeline is drained, there will be a great demand for new “product” (that’s a polite term for the floaters that have been made and not released) to screen at all those multiplexes and on cable / satellite T.V.
Could this mean that Gary “Abuseee” Busey will work again?
