Shame on No Film School for giving an outlet to this deluded serial liar. What a shame to see you think so little of your readers.
Alright. You just made me register so that I could comment. Time for some hard truths from someone who actually acquires films for a living: your self-satisfied tone is really not going to help you sell your film. When you say things like "Dangerous to Know is a film that looks as good or better than the Hollywood big-budget productions" or when you intimate that you believe that someone might mistake it for something that cost 65 million dollars, you are coming off as disingenuous, dangerously deluded and/or laughably inexperienced. I assume this will make you feel defensive, but I hope you'll understand I am really trying to help you out and I can't sugar-coat this. I'm not trying to dismiss the sheer accomplishment of making a feature film for 3 grand, but there is no way in hell your feature passes muster as a professional commercial endeavor. Your bravado and your bluster reeks of not-knowing-what-you-don't-know, and all this talk of revolutionizing the way films are made is a shadow over the one thing you have going for you (your plucky, underdog story) and makes me want to root against you. I LOVE the idea of making a film for 3K, and in fact, that's how many of my clients got their start (it's not as unheard of as you think it might be...) but to pass it off as something commercially viable is a claim I feel the need to address because I don't want you to fleece people with your distribution kickstarter by misrepresenting your realistic prospects. Yours is a very nice-looking student film -- and that is all it is. It has taught you a lot for the time when you get ready to make a commercial film. But your cinematography has "YouTube tutorial" all over it, your sound sucks, your title treatment is amateurish, the acting is very flat, the writing is uninspiring and as mentioned by many before, your trailer really drags. There is a minimum entry-level filmmaking vernacular quite simply missing from your movie that makes it essentially completely commercially unattractive to an audience and to a distributor. I'm sorry, but you need to hear this, and so do your prospective donors. Doing a bit of research on you, I can see you're a relentless self-promoter. Kudos for that. But your claims should AT LEAST be tethered to some form of observable reality in order to count as selling points. When your short film claims to be based on a "best-selling" series of (clearly) self-published books, you're straining basic plausibility. You have real accomplishments, David -- 1 million viewers on Vimeo is nothing to sneeze at. There's no need to lie. And there's no need to mislead people about some groundbreaking film revolution when all you clearly want is some cash from some suckers to make yourself whole. On a brighter note, I think your poster is kind of neat. :)
