Watch this trailer. Watch this movie. I agree with sheckymagazine- the phase “Frankly… original scares me a little” is going to be a cult classic.
Pretty much, this is exactly what it feels like when more than 3 people are involved planning anything. I’m in love with every line Sigourney Weaver has in this trailer. “Suicide is like depressing to like 82% of everybody.”
If you have a vision for something, and you need to explain it to a group- the first thing you need to realize is that you are screwed. The next thing you need to realize is that one third of the room will try to sabotage you because your idea is in direct conflict with their interests. Another third will try to sabotage you just to have something to say. It’s not worth trying to sell the idea on the final third- they’re not paying attention.
I love it when a movie seems to tell your story back to you.
Here’s me telling my buddy Zane about the trailer:
ed_adkins_2000: i’ve watched it like 6 times in a row
ed_adkins_2000: isnt this eactly what it feels like pitching an original idea?
sixmiddlefloor: yeah it is
sixmiddlefloor: people are like gyroscopes
sixmiddlefloor: they push back with opposite and 90 deg out of phase force
ed_adkins_2000: holy shit
ed_adkins_2000: thats- thats great
