Since the "Filmmaker's Area" (or whatever it was called) is gone, I might as well put this thread here.

Wouldn't it be great if several of us managed to form a dream team of screenwriters, directors, producers, DPs, composers, actors, and collaborated, somehow. Obviously distance is a problem, with many of us in different contents, so it might be better suited to pre/post-production work rather than principle photography.

What are your thoughts?

At first I thought this was a thread about the proposed EXPENDABELLES (yep, it's THE EXPENDABLES with an all-female team). laugh

So you're suggesting we BABers unite to work on a film project of some kind? I'm intrigued.

It was something Ambler suggested to me a while ago. Instead of wasting our lives with Bond, we should pool our resources. The new Cathiers Du Cinema..

The trick, as you've pointed out, would be finding a project we could all make a contribution toward despite living very far away from one another.

The other trick to avoid is the whole 'decision by committee' aspect that can prove out Heinlein's definition of a committee as a life form with six or more legs and no brain.

The first time I worked with two other equal collaborators it turned into an argument over every camera setup, with one guy wanting to shoot everything sans cuts, waving the camera back and forth, and the other wanted everything to be done as a wide static master. That's an extreme example, but with strong-willed and/or strong-minded folks, such things do take place.

Several people here seem to have their heads round some kind of space travel thing for a film. Basis for beginning this?

I'd love to collaborate with any of you folks. We've got a really bright and talented group here. Plus, we've all watched a lot of movies.

Well, I've opened up a production company with a bunch of like-minded, industry professionals. Got two films almost in preproduction, so if you guys have a few good ideas, which could possibly make it through our company...

Holy Orson Welles I might be able to...well, get involved somehow. Maybe if we met once a year in some gathering like the SPECTRE meeting in Thunderball. Whoever has done the worst idea is zapped.

Heh, that's what I thought when I read the title, I even assumed Barbara Broccoli somehow got involved. laugh

But if B&B can pull it off, I'd love to see the results.
