Young filmmakers move up faster at

Tips for up and coming filmmakers in the Bahamas or anywhere else. is making it easy for start ups to move ahead quickly,  by pushing the limits of qualifications, accountability and credentials. Believe it or not you can get some meaningful movie experience just by watching a variety of different movies and paying close attention to things like lighting, the angles of shots, the type of music for certain scenes etc... . However, just watching movies won’t complete the package, find someone who is making movies consistently and talk your way onto the team, even if you have to start as a production assistant standing by to take care of small chores that pop up throughout the day.  Even this could be a tough position to get into, but if you offer to work just for experience or deferred payment, more than likely you will beat out the competition.   You could end up in a position which will ultimately lead to making money. 

You can also utilize your local bookstore or library and read a book about film making, find one that can teach you all the technical things you need to know about film making. This Fall the will offer a wide range of opportunities for young movie makers that really mean business. They won't be free, then again nothing worthwhile ever is.-

First round of development deals for movie-makers will be announced at Bahamas Film Industry press conference.

How did JEFFORD CURRE'  Paradise Intrigue 
benefit from Megavision Pictures development start-up deal?

While most artists require a major PR campaign and millions of dollars each year to keep their career alive, for some strange reason, it seems that  Jefford Curre’  is getting away with a whole lot less.  According to a Megavision Pictures filed report issued in 2004, he’s not really getting away at all.  He has paid his dues in personal sacrifices beyond your wildest dreams, and has clearly earned a right to succeed without compromise or apology.  In the beginning Megavision Pictures spent an insane amount of money establishing his "key man" position.  Apparently, they had little or no doubts about his ability to make it this far. 

Today, he’s riding mostly on momentum, as the Bahamas indigenous movie industry approaches a whole new exciting phase.  Jefford Curre’ is considered by many to be one of, if not  the most influential figure in the game.   The achievements of his near impossible missions have established him as a serious force to  be reckoned  with.  But according to those that make up the core of his entourage,  Jefford Curre’ is far from serious.  He’s responsible, yes, but definitely not serious.

Coming in March 2013 Stars In Paradise magazine will have the first run exclusive access behind the scene and into the jet-setting lifestyle of the Bahamas leading man of action. It will be his first interview since the Wall Street Journal featured him in the article ''The Networking Game''. Keep up with Stars In Paradise  daily, it's about to get hot.

Positioning yourself for movie money

Whether you’re an international money launderer posing as a banker, or a relative of pirates who went legit at the turn of the  century, you already know about  the buried treasure that still lies yet undiscovered in, the Bahamas 

Countless sad stories of weak filmmakers who regrettably sold their integrity and allowed themselves to be manipulated by people just to get some money. the in-house training division of Megavision Pictures runs a very interesting program that teaches filmmakers, not only how to make films, but more importantly, how to attract money without losing their own identity.  If the filmmaker loses identity and integrity, he has nothing different to offer his starving audience.  When this happens he is no longer unique and his days are numbered.

 Filmmakers, practically, in the new emerging global Bahamas film market, might find it not a bad idea to establish their position before forming close working relationships with foreign entities.  In other words you must establish a structure that identifies you and demonstrate internal accountability.  This is important for some very good reasons.

 Make no mistake about it, whoever you ask for money will proposition you with a list of conditions.  The key is to find the company that echoes the sentiments that you stand for. For example, if your films or film festival is about spreading democracy, don’t expect the grant organization that believes in dictatorship to fund you.  You will have to change your mind about the governing process and demonstrate that change vividly before you can get the money. 

<!--[if !vml]--><!--[endif
How many times have you seen filmmakers or film festival operators start out with good intentions about producing movies that encourage good will among all mankind.  Very often we realize after a year or so, their press release starts selling them as an extremist in either race,  creed, color or religion.  This happens because real structure and accountability was missing at the beginning.  There was no clear mission of conviction.
