If you had a chance to make your own B-film what would you call it and what would it be about?

Pretend I was a studio executive that gave you a paultry $20,000 just to see what you could do.

It'd most likely be about Zombies but I wouldn't mind doing a giant monster movie like Godzilla. I can't really think of any names because I haven't thought of the movie's plot yet.

I would just make one about the making of a bad movie. Having been involved, to an extent, with a local production, what was going on behind the production was much more entertaining than the production itself.

I have a few original script ideals. One of them truely great and if I get the chance it will be done. Naturally I can't reveal my scripts contents as the main one is going to be a good one. All I can say is it's and odd film about the social impact of some very strange visitors.

I remember my 20 minutes short b-movie, I made about a year ago.

Not Another Stupid Dinosaur Movie


The KGB is trying to take over the world using dinosaurs, and I have to stop them. They created a new species of dinosaurs called DINO-MITE. They are bird-like, and have bombs inside of them. "They can fly over fences, and into our own backyards." The whole highlight of the film was when I found out that my bestfriend was a General from Russia, and he was heading the whole project. I got fed to a T-rex that was roaming outside my house, and he got a call from President Bush, and he said he is sending Eric Roberts to save the day.

Than the ending credits roll up, and it turns out its only a movie. But was it? In the last shot, we see one of the dinosaurs masterbating to porn on the Internet.

All this cost 99 cents, because of some green transparent paper we had to use to cover the camera lens for the POV of the dinosaurs. All the other stuff (dinosaur puppets, cameras, video tape, etc. we had in our homes). And we did this all on one or two takes, in 8 hours.

Like Scott, I have a cool sci-fi/spiritual idea for a story but I hate to say to much until I get something written

I'd like to make an alien/space movie, but without any human characters at all, just aliens. I doubt it could be done for $20,000 though.

Yea, Sci-Fi tends to be an expensive genre, but then again you have such films as MISSLE TO THE MOON and ANGRY RED PLANET. : )

I got a lot of comic book ideas, I think I'd rather do a comic book series instead of a movie for 20,000 why?

1) No CGI or puppets for any mutants or monsters. This way everything sort of blends together.

2) More time. With a movie you can have three hours at most most of the time but with a comic book you can have a lot more time to explain things.

3) Comic books rule as bad ass as movies.

Gimme 20,000 dollars I'll make a comic book for you!

I have ideas that I think are good but like Scott I'd rather not risk someone stealing them (sorry.)

If I had $20,000 to make something, I would go with a practical script, one that doesn't require as much strain on your budget. A truly inspired idea is great, but if you can't do it on that little amount of money... it doesn't matter.

I wrote my first draft of a script a while ago called "It's Supernatural, Bob." The plot goes like this:

"What, exactly, would happen if you and four friends (plus one stranger) came face to face with a miffed +18 level Necromancer in the woods."

Nothing to original, but I'm positive I could do it on that budget.

Ironically, my scifi/spiritual idea wouldn't need any special effects or much in the way of settings

For B-films, I'd probably remake really bad stuff like "The Creeping Terror", so at least I could be sure that I could improve on the original. Maybe I'd change just enough that I wouldn't have to pay whoever owns the rights.

I don't know if this would be B or not, but I read this Fritz Leiber novella awhile ago that I think would make a good movie, and I have a pretty good idea of how I'd like to see it done. I'm thinking Rutger Hauer (sp?) as the hero, Molly Ringwald as the heroine. Peter Laurie (sp?) would be perfect as the semi-evil guy, if he were still alive. I think there were about six more bad guys, I think it'd be kind of cool to have the Lone Gunmen from the X-Files play three of them. There's a sadistic female ringleader too, it might be cool to cast a porn star or something (she should be able to do "thoroghly enjoying a depraved act"). Probably mimes or something for most of the smaller parts. I'd want to go pretty close to the book, but definitely leave out the dream sequence, and go with the more downbeat ending the author set up but didn't do (He set it up so well in the story that it would have seemed redundant if it had actually ended that way, so I think the happy ending worked really well in the book). It'd be a little Matrixy, but not overly, might use some similar incidental music (BAAAA...naaaaa). If I had enough money, I'd want to hire the special effects people that made that commercial where the people are calmly walking around with huge car wrecks going on inches away from them, I think it was an insurance commercial.
