Twelve Rules for Making a Hollywood Movie

September 6, 2018

Dear Reader, This week let’s have some fun with Hollywood!

TWELVE RULES FOR MAKING A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE

1. Vocal coaches must instruct all actors to whisper or scream all lines, ‘… like they do in real life!’

2. Aging male stars must date starlets.

3. Films must fit one of three formats:

Kids = cartoon movies
Women = love stories with a wedding at the end.
Men = action heroes with lots of special effects.

4. Must spend over 50 million to advertise film – this stuff won’t sell itself!

5. There must be conflict. If the character buys a loaf of bread the clerk, a total stranger, has to scowl, hassle, and oppose him at every turn, ’cause that’s reality!

6. Keep the following out of your film, seniors, children, teens, people of color, happily married couples, and women in leadership positions; unless they are plot points; but even then, never dwell on them!

7. All characters must come from broken homes like the screenwriters do!

8. Movie posters must be cluttered with a list all thousand of the executive producers, regular producers, directors, etc. to emphasize the personal vision of the writer.

9. Dumb down everything except for a single plot point surprise at the end.

10. Bystanders must never get involved and have to act like frozen props! Make sure that minor characters act exceptionally stubborn and stupid to move the plot along!

11. Originality is extremely important – specially in sequels, and remakes.

12. Theater employees that sell the tickets and popcorn, must continue to get the lowest wages and benefits allowed by law. Though Hollywood walks the red carpet, theater workers must be swept under it!

Sayings of Editor Art – a dozen more

August 14, 2018

Numbers count!

Everybody’s got a book but nobody’s got a reader!

You are arguing with the tires, not the driver.

The camera adds 10 pounds? What did you use 4 cameras?

When the bottom bricks crumble the top falls too.

When you get to meaningless, you get to the point.

Journalism has now shifted from research, writing, editing, to an anchor asking, “What do you think?” or even worse, “What do you feel?”

When armed and trained police and security are being shot, there are too many guns in the wrong hands.

The choice, an armed state starting with airports, schools, and government buildings, or reasonable gun laws that keep guns out of the wrong hands.

With gerrymandering and other voting poll tricks, voting is more a rubber stamp then a consensus.

Those two women are beautiful in any language!

Q. Where did my glass go?
A. Scotland!

More Sayings of Editor Art

Here are more sayings of Musea’s Editor Art

Why do you think the world gets so excited about a new great book, record, or film; but no one cares about a new great painting? All are mass produced except the painting.

When you are cold, nothing else matters.

Too many think that art is a trendy marketing scheme.

Do you think your knife cuts water?

This generation supports progressive politicians; but won’t support progressive musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers that are trying to make the arts better; and instead accepts without question the most corporate art, controlled by the very few mega corporations.

Cotton Candy Talk (empty talk that sounds sweet.)

Trump is our environment president, he’s preserved the swamp.

Each great family has a torch bearer.

Power is like a rug under your feet on a waxed floor.

Too many business executives use their company as a shield to hide their profiteering. The company takes the blame and the business executive leaves with millions.

Go to bed hungry, wake up hungry.

Music can mean anything. Lyrics lock it in.
