I told him today lol…
Him " I want a full length feature animation with the quilty of pixar"
Me " you know how lomg pixar take to make a movie?"
Me “4-5 years, with dozens of people, So only me I take a lifetime”
Him “So, not like you have anything to lose”
Me “I will need more helping me I cant do it alone”
Him “Its not that you cant, you just need to focus”
Me “Okay you see that chicken and big sharp knife? Imagine try to cut that chicken at the same quilt with tweesers. Not only Do i not that the right tools, but the time to render that would take over a year. You would you not want to watch tv for a yeart becuase its busy recording sometime?”
Him “Ill buy what you need if you can get it done”
Me “Got atleast 20,000 USD”, like I said I would nee more help
Him “Why have someone else do something you can do youself?”
Me “I dont want to wait 20 years working on a project, I want reconition not money, And I wont hide my talents working on a project with a story line that has been played way too often? I need a benifit from this, besides are ytou willing to wait 20 years? You past 40, and no idea how much time you have left. Why would you want to wait 20 years to start a projecet”
Him “So its a no? =_= My dreams”
Me “Think of it like this, I will be spending/pushing 1000x more time then you would writing and adding music. Would you be willing to spend all that time knowing you only getting 50%?”
Him “So its off?”
Me "If you really want to start a production company, you need money or to start a lot smaller, you cant make a movie @ your first try. Look just write sometime that will last 15-20 mins and get 2 more people to help and I am in.
Him “why cant yuou do it yourself, why share profit that with people when you can do it your self, see where I am going?”
Me " Yeah no where, think about this, Time vs Money The time that 3 people take to make something rather then one will result in a better product (you can focus on your strengths) and it will be out faster so you gert money faster. A production, you will be you own boss, but unless you dont have anything under your belt, dont expect people to bend over backwards for you. You need reconition and leverage, which you lack. So start small, or not start at all."
Man I dont know how much more info he need to understand my position. Oh well. He said he want to try something with me… so I told him when he has a story Ill see on it.
