Are you a Doctor or Engineer who Wants to Make a Movie?

Do you stay awake nights thinking about the film you'd like to make? We at Cine 101 can help you make your dream a reality. For starters, we have a director of photography-35mm camera rental package available for $250/day. Kubrick's favorite camera, the Arri BL-1 and a set of pristine prime lenses. Sure, digital video is everywhere, but there's still nothing like the organic, luscious look of celluloid....and all things being equal...distributors love it. It IS possible to get a low budget 35mm feature into the can for $20K. Let's talk. Reply to this post with some details, and I'll get back to you.

Would a retarded monkey (such as myself) be able to operate such a device? Is there a place online that I could do a bit o' research regarding the basics of that camera or one like it? I'm a retarded monkey. But also a curious one. Thanks!

rycrisp, we specialize in helping reatrded monkeys become filmmakers. Our cameraman will do all the thinking, changing the mags, loading the film, etc....and when everything is set to go, and you're ready to yell action---you can press the camera button ON, and then let go for OFF when youre ready to stop burning film.
all you need is a fat bank account.

Dammit! My bank account has been on Atkins. It seemed like a good idea at first, but crap. What a disaster!
Now, do you guys do ride alongs sometimes? Like, when the police let you hang out (in the front seat..never been there) and you get to run the siren. Maybe you guys could let some kid hang out and yell "ACTION!" I do that without a camera.

Yelling "Action" will cost extra. That's our $1,500/day "director
package". You get a beret, a bullhorn, a monicle, and one of those nifty folding chairs that says in big
bold letters "DIRECTOR". if you have no money,
well.... no tickie-no laundry

That actually looked like a pretty good deal. Till I realized you didn't provide the pants with the big plumes on the sides. How would anybody take a director seriously without those? "Action!...ahem...ACTION!!" "AXXXX SHHHUN!!!!" Nothing. You should rethink that package.
