Motion Picture Money Formula By MarieAnna Dvorak


No matter what is said about a film investment guarantee, there isn’t such a thing as a guarantee before film audiences say so. No bankable name, distribution pre-sale or even the most remarkable story can guarantee success before a film hits the box office and costly P&A expenses are paid. These elements help, but they don’t guarantee investment return.

Such insecurity is greatly eliminated when a film is based on a bestseller book which already has pre-existing fans and publicity. Especially, when millions of readers are calling for clarification of the story.

One such book was based on the real life of someone who is still alive, however, muddled by fiction. The line between fiction and nonfiction is disturbing, leaving readers confused and curious about what is real and what is fiction. Thus, these questions can only be answered by the actual character; and she is ready now to undertake to answer all the questions in her motion picture. What was the book based on, and what was the true life of the character, will certainly astonish the readers.

Nearly 10,000 reviews have been written and countless comments made on this novel that topped the bestseller list in the 1980s. It certainly deserves the high rating for its popularity hasn’t changed, except that what was reality at the time of its release is today an essential part of our history.

During the intervening years the book has been read in 18 languages. There is no saying how many millions of people read the book. According to my estimate, if only half of them buy a theater ticket, the domestic and international box office will generate $120 million in gross.

Production of the motion picture needs an executive producer. It will be held in a Major European Studio and partially in New York.

Take On Me

ha @ARTISTdirect

The 1980’s (and 1880’s, too!) remains my favorite decade for music and is known for a lot of great songs and music, especially by one-hit-wonder singers and bands.  My favorite one-hit-wonder song for the ’80’s still remains the Grammy-winning No. 1 hit “Take On Me” by the Norwegian pop band A-Ha.  However, the 1980’s is also known for ushering in music videos and producing some if not most of the best music videos ever.  But for all of them, the music video for Take On Me is my absolute favorite.  It’s one of a kind, except for maybe a few copycats that don’t size up.  So if the song doesn’t grab you, the video certainly should.  It’s a pop music video that tells a story with a beginning, middle and end…and a happy ending.  It’s still absolutely awesome!

Two beautiful ballads by ToTo

A master of ballads and one of the 10 best pop/rock bands of the 1980s and early ’90s, in my opinion, is Toto.  Here are two of their biggest hits and two of the most beautiful torch songs from that era.  My and my great novelist father’s favorites by this incomparable musical act, nostalgia and flames abound. So be careful…these fiery songs can scorch and burn!
