Or jack off crystals imbued with the power of a pro wrestler. I bet LividLiquid could hire Scott Steiner to jerk off while wearing a J/O crystal, and then sell it to allow other people to gain the power of the Big Bad Booty Daddy.

Sell crystals of all people's favorites. Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner, Ryback, Cody Rhodes, that Cheeseburger guy...

Looking professional when committing genocide is essential. This is mostly achieved by using a beret.

Olive drab colour ensures the genocider will remain hidden from his prey until it's too late for them to do anything.

There aren't any real indies here.

I can't stress enough that wrestling is basically illegal in Washinton state and Oregon, and I'm neither a flippy-do indy guy with trashbag pants willing to spend $600 on gas and lodging for twelve bucks and pizza in gain nor am I Dixie carter, willing to unleash my vast tens of dollars to feel like I'm in the wrestling business full-time. I'd do it once for fun, and more if it worked out.

If you fuckers'll pay for it, since you're the only fuckers who'd pay for it, I would fly Rovert to Seattle, sit him in my studio, and ask him literally any question you wanted that fit in a two-hour window. Rovert might be thrilled to do it. We would create a cultural artifact so niche it would make your loving head explode. The time it would take to explain what it was would exceed whatever we recorded, I'm sure.

Serious answer:

I'm workshopping two business models. Both digital.

Ideally, though, I'd land ideologically on the Louis CK model. Release with no bullshit, and no DRM, digitally, with no fees above the price, and politely remind the audience that piracy means no more no-bullshit product.

Getting the store set up is, again, kind of a non-issue. That's an afternoon for my developer.

rotinaj posted:

Another serious answer? He would never loving do it, and you're being a glib jackass who thinks I have no grasp on reality (though I do like you (especially your forum name), and don't let my name-calling belay that). There's a reason I mentioned Kevin Nash as an off-the-head first get. He'll show up for anybody who pays his booking fee.

If he said no? I'd find the next biggest name who'd say yes, right on down the line until I was at somebody who only worked TNA, at which point I'd be like, "yeah. This project isn't tenable," and gently caress off to my next project. Probably the videography and sound of somebody's wedding, or a corporate party, or something more expensive I'd have to rent equipment for.

If I steal this idea, I'm not paying you. But holy poo poo would I ever watch a video where I interviewed Scott Steiner for two hours as if wrestling were real. Tell me you loving wouldn't. The Steiner Math section would last half-an-hour at least.

flashy_mcflash posted:

While I've never worked on this movie, I have definitely worked on things that were close enough for this joke to still somehow misunderstand that most people who work in show business don't work on either Michael Bay schlock, nor arthouse cinema.

It's a business, dude. Posts like yours, if they're serious, have resulted in me depositing money into a bank account. Page after page of posts like that are actually kind of hilarious to me. It's really not hard to be a professional in a field that yields billions a year if you don't expect to be on the top of it, especially if you don't get embarrassed by certain things.

I posted a loving video, on this forum, of me drunk off my rear end singing Bray Wyatt's theme. Badly.

The fact that so many of you (and granted, not even close to all of you, I'm sure) are shocked that anybody can make a living in entertainment makes me wonder what you do when you're not working. Because all of the people who fill that time for you make money. And not all of them are millionaires. Most of them are schlubs like me.

I lied. I am the indy worker wearing trashbag pants. I've just been making a living at it for fifteen years.

Some of us die satisfied with being Kid Kash, I suppose. Or, hell, I don't follow indies. Somebody whose name I've never heard who makes a living and gets mentioned in the Wrestling Observer twice a year.

Anyway, I have two projects I need to finish cutting before December ends, and then I'll either get to work on this, or it'll remain a fun idea I had once. It isn't my beginning or end. But it'd be fun, and I wouldn't mind trying it.

If you want to pay $5,000 to say you flew Kevin Nash out to Seattle to ask him about Batista's dick (or whatever else you're thinking of doing) on your garage couch in front of a green-screen then go loving nuts if it'll make you happy, man.

I will reiterate that I wanna be at least a viable (3000 viewers) Hearthstone streamer. I think I already have all the hardware I need, just need some marketing to get those sweet Twitch subs and maybe a Patreon if I can make myself write short stories and/or blog posts three times a week. You could definitely throw your money my way.

Livid, I'm being honest here and not flippant. You are asking if you should do an artistic project when you're displaying a complete lack of a point of view. If you had a great idea for these interviews I'd say you were more than halfway there but you don't even have that. People recognize and know that in order to be worth anyone's time, you can't just invite people to your garage and ask questions. What's your thesis, for lack of a better term?

Don't come here asking what you should ask. Figure out what this show is ON YOUR OWN and then ask for help with logistics. Your other show is "movie reviews with a theme of social justice". What is this?

This is legitimate good advice and you should follow it. Think of who the audience is for what you're putting out. Does anyone care about yet another Kevin Nash shoot in 2017? What angle could you take that would make people care?

If you have a unique take on a wrestler interview, you stand a better chance of actually booking someone too. Show you've thought this through and you won't be wasting their time.
