Pitchfest

I'll be there this Sunday representing Windchill Films if you'd like to come pitch to me. We're looking for low-budget horror ($200,000) and high-concept comedy or Die Hard types.

Do you mean you are picking the next great low budget horror film?

BTW, glad you are back....

OK, I got this idea -- a young scatterbrained lawyer/ sci-fi geek/ sports freak married to a beautiful and hardworking schoolteacher, with 2 kids, randomly e-mails old friends from college and HS out of the blue and reconnects with:

-- his former HS, Mustang-convertible driving buddy who's now working two years in the Peace Corps in Nicaragua and engaged to a local law student...

-- his former HS crush, coincidentally another beautiful and hardworking schoolteacher who also married another sci fi/ sports/ politics geek, and is now raising her first child and...

-- a single, ambitious tech-savvy screenwriter coping with profound family changes while searching for love and laughs in bohemian L.A.

Nah, too contrived. ;-)

Hi Lynda, thanks!

MIM, you're hired! But where's the horror?

Kid Sis said...

Oh sorry...yes Lynda, I get to pick the next great low budget horror film ;)

Actually, we start production May 22nd on a fantastic project called "Seance" directed and written by A-lister Mark L. Smith...

Soaking up everything I can to help us with shooting Pistoleras and The Commune!

Wait a minute -- what exactly are you DOING at Windchill? (And as a Chicago native, I extend kudos on the company name.)

IN A WORLD where avacados rain from the skies like guacamole thunder... Where omnivorous rodents the size of shoeboxes rule the shadows... Where distant sirens stoke lupine blood until high-pitched howls are ripped from tiny throats... ONE DOG STANDS ALONE. A dainty tippy-tappy dog. A round dog. A dog of destiny.

Coming this fall from Windchill Films... EXPERIENCE the horror that is... HERO IN THE YARD. (This film is not yet rated.)

The website link says it is "Snowfall Films" Is Windchill a part of it?

How was it?

How was it? I like Brian's idea. ;) I'm back with ears still ringing.

Lynda said...

I think Brian's should be titled "The Hero of Guacamole Hills".

Lynda said...

Ok, let me give it a go:

Deep within the concrete jungle, people are swallowed up in the small doorways, slowly digested and spit out for lunch break. Yet, these people return, as if possessed, and finally leave at 5 p.m. in a zombie like state. Can it be stopped? Will the process ever end?

Coming this Fall, watch the new horror flick, from the director of Scream and Scream II - Work. Will you be swallowed by the concrete jungle?


Sorry, I am totally drawing a blank. I know I can do better.

We need some mock posters!

My younger brother is the artist. I only really know how to express my creativity with words.
