Feature Film - Worth it?

6 years on my filmmaking journey has shown me that the motion picture game, from indie film level all the way up, is a closed playground for the few. And unless you have the money or contacts, chances of getting to have a kick about in that playground is highly unlikely. That is, if you're playing by the rules.

Based on my my current setup, I reckon I could potentially shoot a self contained feature film within 10 days. But the question I always find myself asking is:

Will it be worth it?

SETBACK - A Short Script Needs You! (Pt1)

Christian Bale: American Psycho (2000)

"Ozdemir has some intriguing ideas about looking deeper than the filmic surface – something that all filmmakers should start thinking about.." In Production - Brett Gerry Films

I'm writing this article in search of a small group of talented actors, actresses and Independent filmmakers willing to collaborate on an Interesting yet somewhat twisted little short film. 

Set Back is a short script I wrote within 24hrs of having the initial Idea and weighs in at a mammoth, wait for it... 5 pages! *Ahem* - The story looks at a day in mans life who through a series of baffling events discovers the body of a murdered young female. Though he informs the relevant authorities of this tragic event, he finds himself locked up and protesting his Innocence.

The Initial Idea for Set Back came whilst taking a break from writing my James Cameron Inspired Sci-Fi short K.O.S (more on that later). Oh wait, did I just say whilst taking a break? I'm sorry, what I meant to say was whilst bashing my head against a wall and screaming like a 2yr old in need of a fresh diaper! Oh the joy of writing..
