'k, I don't consider myself a straight to video writer. I know someone who is in tune with what that population wants, and it ain't me. I can't tell you the first thing about what twelve year old stoner boys want to watch at 3 am. I'd really be reaching. Although, ironically because of a lifetime of comic collecting, there probably is a 12 year old boy niche I could write for...it's just the men would be wearing spandex, not the women.
When I say low budget, I'm thinking indie films for smartiepants women, or MOW and TV for cable channels like HERE and Oxygen. That's more the crowd that gets me.
I'm just saying, willing to start small...I'm not one of those jackholes who thinks they deserve to break into big budget feature films with their first spec. I'll pay dues, and my goals are small. Working writer. That's about it.
