The BIG Picture

| | Comments (6) | TrackBacks (0)
big_ideas.jpgGood morning.  Today, I am announcing - with the full cooperation of Robin Rafe - President of the Manka Bros. Theatrical Group - a complete strategy shift in the way we develop, produce and distribute films for all of the divisions within the Manka Bros. Theatrical Group family (Manka Bros. Films, Manka Highbrow, Manka Dogme, Manka Docs, and Manka Shorts).

From today forward, we will only be producing movies with BIG IDEAS.  A guy trying to cure a disease in his basement is a small idea.  The moon landing is a small idea.  Saving the family farm?  Not on my watch.  If you want to save the fucking family farm - call Fox Searchlight or Sony Classics.  The Theatrical Group has been thinking small for far too many years - and that changes today.  I mean, just look at the 2009 Slate for Manka Bros. Films!  A movie about Sign SpinnersGregory Lopez:  Excellent Plumber?  Are you fucking kidding me?

So... this is your mandate.  BIG IDEAS.  I want ideas about saving galaxies and saving planets.  Global wars.  Boxing Presidents.  Superheroes (but not mild-mannered ones - BIG SUPERHEROES WITH BIG IDEAS!).  If X doesn't do Y then the planet explodes!  Shit like that. 

I want Jesus to come back to the earth, read our scripts and say "Man, that's a BIG idea!"

And I don't want to hear any complaints from Manka Highbrow (your 2009 Slate is pathetic as well) or Manka Dogme.  Just because you're low-budget arthouse labels doesn't mean you can't have BIG ideas.  No more punks who don't comb their hair and talk about how they don't know what they want to do with their lives.  You can be poor and have a big story - just look at Moses.

Get to work.

How about Monsters vs. Aliens? That sounds like a pretty BIG idea.

You guys are finally coming around. Big ideas are in my wheelhouse! I've got thousands. I'll be in touch.

Writer Need Work said:

Can I please work on your big ideas? I'm a writer and I need work. How about something about Hitler and Stalin and the Collosus of Rhodes!

Jimmy Radson said:

Amazing. you guys are always out in front of all the trends. I don't think anyone else has a tentpole strategy... except everyone!

It's another fatal strategic error for Manka Brothers.
