I suspect their reasoning would go something along the lines of: "To have sex with another, with the intent of reproduction, serves a practical purpose which justifies the act in the eyes of god. Even the act of sex with another, without the intent of reproduction, while married, is still an ac...

That's not how that works. Her friendship with your brother is between her and your brother. To expect her to pay attention to you because she's friends with your brother is a bit unreasonable. If she doesn't want to interact with you, she doesn't have to. You may not like it, but it's not unreasona...

Colleges already have an effective method for weeding people out. It's called the application process. Colleges don't make a habit of accepting people they think can't make the grade. Accepting students only to cull them later only lowers the school's graduation / retention rate numbers. Investing i...

People come in all shapes sizes and builds, and do not fall neatly into "small medium and large" categories. That’s interesting so is it possible for example too be extra large built? People come in all shapes sizes and builds, and do not fall neatly into "extra small, small, medium,...

STATISTICALLY, every time you flip a coin, you have a 50/50 chance of it being heads. REALISTICALLY, you can still get tails 20 times in a row. Getting tails 20 times in a row does not mean you will always flip a tails, even though, up to that point, you have a 100% rate of flipping a tails. Statis...

So if traveling to make El Mariachi would have cost Robert Rodriguez more money though, then why did he travel to make then? A better question would be, since travel makes things more expensive, then how much less than $7K would have el mariachi have cost to film, if they hadn't traveled to film it...

Oh okay, well one other filmmaker I know has been able to get funding for his projects so far, so it's not impossible, but I was planning on the worst, in which case I very well might not get it if I shoot scenes before hand. I can shoot scenes beforehand, but still wanted a plan B, in case I didn'...

Literally anything can be marketed. It doesn't even have to physically exist. Bugatti marketed the Veyron LONG before they'd ever even built the thing. It's colloquailly called "building hype". If you have a scene, you have something physical you can show other people. You can ask them, Do...

Many times, when someone says something "can't" be done, what it really means is, THEY haven't been able to do it, so they *assume* it can't be done. Also consider that the film industry is incredibly competitive, and many people may not actually be trying to help you in good faith. Even f...

Big budgets don't guarantee great movies. A higher budget can present more opportunities, but it doesn't guarantee success. Waterworld and The Postman had massive budgets, and were terrible movies. Ghost Dog was filmed on a tiny fraction of that budget, and is one of my favorite movies. Many cult cl...

Maybe I've got my stories crossed - but the idea is still the same - there are ways to do things on a low budget or no budget, that can be used to convince people to invest in future projects with larger budgets. If you got a handycam and a few volunteers, and filmed a few scenes for basically the c...

Well by frozen, if I do what the parents say the money will not be withdraw-able for some time, and I need it to be able to pay everyone. As for looking for funding, other filmmakers I know and have worked under have tried that but in the end, they were not able to get enough and still had to use a...

The screenplay is written I was just doing some rewrites before based on reader's opinions. I talked to my parents and said we can put half the money into the account and can be frozen for savings plans, but the rest I want to be able to take out at my discretion if I want to. That's half, so that'...

Your parents are trying to help you. You should listen to them. They are not trying to "seize control" of your money. They are trying to keep you from pissing it away for no reason. You may not be insane, but you are not acting reasonable either. By all means, follow your dreams, but not l...
