Here’s a thing.
We’re making a movie, as many of you know. We got a budget through Kickstarter, which was absolutely AWESOME. However, we’re still shooting a movie on a tiny, tiny fraction of a Hollywood budget (less than 1%) so we need to get any cool stuff we possibly can onscreen without breaking our budget. This is where the idea of a Rodriguez List comes in.
Before Robert Rodriguez shot his first movie, he made a list of all the cool stuff he could get hold of for free and then he stuck it in the movie. That’s why there’s a turtle in it!
If you’ve got cool stuff that you’d like to get featured in a movie in exchange for a credit or a thank you or whatever, drop us a line through our form at http://powertoolcheerleaders.com – maybe you’ve spent years on a piece of artwork and want to show it off? Or you own a business or a location that you’d like to feature in the movie? This film is going to get made and it’s going to be awesome, so if you’ve got something you’d like to get featured in front of the camera why not let us know before it’s too late!
I’ve run the Rodriguez List as an exercise at live gigs and lectures many times. Sometimes you come across truly amazing stuff (like someone with a train carriage in their back garden, for example) and it’s always fascinating. There was a sequence of me running a Rodriguez List as part of my live show Werewolves, Cheerleaders & Chainsaws which I was about to link to, but I’ve just discovered that the show is no longer online. Damn. I should probably sort that out.
Anyway, go and complete the form on the website, and feel free to spread the word.
You are all awesome.
