Green Means Go!

Concept art for in-the-works monster movie parody.

I jumped the gun last year and announced that I was about to sew up a deal to write and direct a new feature film. Well, it took half a year…

but the deal is finally sealed!

I’ve been greenlighted (Hollywood talk for “the money is in the bank”) to finish writing the screenplay and start location-scouting for an over-the-top indie spoof of 1950s/60s monster movies!

I’ll post updates as things develop!

    Congrats! Interesting premise, since I usually have considered 50s and 60s monster movies self-spoofing. 🙂 I always have been curious how it works… is htere separate line item budgeting (green) for screenplay and other duties, like location scouting?

    Hi Mitch,

    Great that is awesome you are doing a monster movie! See,that is what I mean that believers need to jump into all sorts of pieces and genres of production to reach as many people as possible!

    I always loved Godzilla, Gamora, Roldan, etc. Sci-fi and Fantasy are ripe for great stories with great messages! Keep me posted,
