  2. 2. Question: Are you frustrated Filmmaker, Producer, Director, Actor, Screenwriter, Cinematographer, Editor, Composer and Crew Member who have tried just about everything from sending pictures, scripts, pitches and demo reels and you still can’t break into film industry? If so, I’ve got great news… 2MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com
  3. 3. “How To Shoot, Edit and Screen Your First Movie On a Big Screen in 180 Days? No Sex No Drugs Keep Your Dignity This is a step-by-step blueprint without the need for large amounts of capital, years of experience or pre-existing contacts! 3MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com
  4. 4. Imagine standing on the stage of a movie theatre with your thank you speech in your hand just 180 days from now. The spotlight is on you. You can’t see a single face but you know that all of the people who have helped to bring your idea to the big screen are there: the actors, crew members, sponsors, family members and friends. In a few moments the lights will go down and what was once an idea, a book, an event or even someone’s life will be on the big screen. 4MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com
  5. 5. This is not a fictional story. I did it and I am a film school dropout who speaks English as a second language, which may explain the mistakes in this video letter. Please, don’t let this distract you from my main message or influence your actions in the next few minutes. Because the actions you take if you follow my system are transformational - once you finish you will never be the same person. 5MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com

  8. 8. Who The Heck Am I, And Why Should You Listen To Me? System tested in Hollywood. Xtreme Filmmaking Challenge – arrived with nothing – no connections, no friends, no story – just my course and access to the internet. Within 40 days I was noticed by president of the studio and got contract to co- produce and direct. Entire process took 67 Days.

  9. 9. My “little” movie played in 2 film festivals in San Francisco and Italy and led to a contract with movie studio. 9MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com
  10. 10. Why so many fail in film industry? What is the problem and how to avoid it? The famous scientist, Albert Einstein, defined insanity as: “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” My slightly modified definition is: “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to succeed where others have failed.” And some examples are : 10MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com
  11. 11. Actors – driving for 30-45 minutes one way to an audition just to be there for 5 lousy minutes and then never hearing back from the production company. Screenwriters – sending letters or scripts which are sent back unopened or just placed directly in the waste basket. Producers and directors – pitching ideas to people who simply don’t care and are not really interested (during networking meetings) Cinematographers, editors and other crew members submitting demo reels which just collect dust with hundreds of other materials. 11MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com
  12. 12. How long are you going to continue to do these things and when are you going to wake up? Are you ready to take charge of your life? Are you ready to stop living permission based life? You don’t have to ask anybody Do you think I’m good enough Do you think I’m worthy Should I wait for perfect moment ? There is no perfect moment but now. Be honest about Your Results 12MakeMoviesFast.com FilmmakingSociety.com FilmmakingForNewbies.com
