So a rich white guy comes up to you, finds out you're a filmmaker/aspiring filmmaker and says he will give you $1 million to budget any filmmaking project you want. What do you make with it?

I have a feature length superhero script in the works that I'd probably do. Or maybe I'd team up with my buddy Chad Peter and do something with him. I dunno.

I'd probably do "Mall Mob", a teen comedy idea I've been kicking around about inept mobsters versus federally-funded mall cops with a hapless game geek trying to get a date caught in the middle.

I would do a gritty action movie. With commandos, shady politicians, back-stabbing whores, and precise realistic action scenes. Fiction mixed with fact. I would dish out one fucking hell of a movie and it would be my first time at it. Playing with GI Joes really inspired me as a youth.

I would just submerge myself in these historical Appalachian documentaries that I have been working on in a pre-production phase for a couple of years. I will actually start shooting the first one this coming fall. I'm waiting for the season to change. I have quite a few projects that are in the works that I have been filming, I guess I would use the money to further fund those. For a million dollars, I could do quite a bit of work, based on how I work. I know my b-roll cost wouldn't be an issue anymore. That is the part of docs that can be the killer.

Either my Vampire/demon revenge film or my angel Vs Demon / alien civil war / unknown (the current draft doesn't actually explain what the protagonists are and I'm thinking of leaving it that way) movie with mucho custom guns and the removal of eyeballs as an integral plot point.

I would do a low budget mini-series of Piers Anthony's Battle Circle trilogy. Lots of stunt fighting with sticks,swords,and knives, so I'm sure I could get fellow UGers to work cheap. ;) Picture a Mad Max like world where individual conflicts are settled in a golf green size arena with your choice of hand weapon(sword,two knives,two sticks,single staff,club,or morning star mace). Fun ensues.
