Only "U.S. residents"?? 

What a bloody hypocrite.  Mexican shot the film in Mexico about Mexiconess in Spanish language. 

Yeah great, let's "return to our roots" by changing our roots to American English, and by discriminating against every country in the world except one. 

People these days and their trying to hard to appeal to people's emotions, and instead getting everything all contrasted and buggered up. 

Does sound like a fun project though. 

Aldridge and Cornfly, there's an opportunity for yous to make something with little money but with a potential to make big profit. 

Aldridge, maybe this is your chance to get your fetish film made.  Go phone that actress you wanted and tell her to start booking her waxing sessions.

Marius, you're such a trooper.


I seriously considered taking a crack at this until I read the part about having to go to Texas for 6 weeks. I'm taking care of a relative and can't leave him for more than a few hours at a time. Oh well; that's showbiz.

 Yeah, no way that I can clear 6 weeks from my schedule.  Sounds cool, though.

If you read it right, you'd see that it's actually about making a reality series for TV.  That means the publicity for your film is already built in. 

Plus, you'll have some kind of celebrity leverage for at leat 5 years before you're forgotten.  5 years during which media people will take you serious if you tackle another project.  Plus, you'll get contacts.   

But yeah, change your daily schedule to accommodate this?  They got some nerve. 


I don't think there will be another one though.  Remember Steven Spielberg's "On The Lot"?  Kind of just died out for some reason. 

So miss this ride at your own peril.  They're probably actually looking to elevate some non-whites with this program anyway.  You'll just be shoved on the back burner and ignored.
