Great I'm going to make a movie!

I wanted to make a movie for a very long time.. and now the time has finally been there that I thought of a great storyline worth turning into one! The only question is when I have enough time to work it out.

I can't tell you much about it but it's not really magic-related, although it comes close in a way.

Ohhhh that would be awesome to see. Are you going to be acting too or just directing?

I still think the idea with the train was okay.

It will be a long movie uploaded to YouTube. There will be the slightest bit of magic in it, but it's not the focus at all as said in the main post. I may be acting a little but probably I'll just be directing.

And no, I haven't been studying this at the university. I did however follow a film making course some years ago but it's not that I learnt a lot at it.

I have actually been asked by friends what a movie with me would be like, but I just can't think of a decent script for that so I rather make a movie with a character I feel somewhat related to. You could actually see the main character as me, yet he's an expert in another field, going another road.

Strangely... the only name that comes to mind right now would be... "Morpheus"...

Actually, I just had a great idea for a magic/DarkSleightZ-related movie, although it may be a bit too much of a cliché. Fact is that it won't ever be as good as my all-time favorite, 'The Prestige'. But yeah, maybe I should make two movies.

How small is your budget?

hmmm, "The Prestige", still love it, takes deception to a whole new level( the fact that they manage to hide the secret while they grow up is kinda scary)

Why so? Do you mean because of the beginning and the ending? If so essentially it was a cool movie twist, man

I found that the "twist" didn't quite fit with the rest of the movie, it was like I thought we were in "basic realistic fiction" land for most of the film and I was quite happy; and then suddenly we went into "x-files meets Frankenstein" land and I was thinking "just what is this film?" and it threw me for a loop in all the wrong ways. Basically, the twist felt a bit too bizarre for the atmosphere and set-up before it. But I thought many parts of the film were great. Maybe I was in the wrong mood :S

That's quite an overreaction, Fin. 'The Prestige' is so amazingly well thought out. However, a little bit of your reaction makes sense because the makers had the purpose of leaving the viewers with the thought "I really have to see this movie again now".

It's a bit like 'Hoodwinked (1)' (a really ingenious animation), a puzzle that comes together in the end. I doubt that there could've been a better end to 'The Prestige'.
