There's no Business

If you could be in 'the movie biz' what job do you think you'd enjoy doing the most?

Be as specific as you'd like. I think it'd be fun to hear if you wanted to work on a certain movie with certain people or not.

Interesting question... not really sure. Definitely behind the camera doing something fun because I don't need a camera adding 10 pounds to any area of my body!

Oh gosh, this is an interesting question. My first instinct was I'd like to be an actress. The thought of having someone do my hair, make my food, help me loose weight would be SO GREAT. It would be my JOB to look good.

But I don't think I'd like the fame. I'd like to have the money and perks of being famous but not so much "get-stopped-in-the-street-all-the-time" type of fame. Maybe a director, or a writer maybe.

I have found I have a profound distaste for most romantic comedies lately so I'd be happy to work on anything but those!

I am very much a behind the camera kind of gal. I would love to be the one that puts the sets together. That is so my style!

I think it would be fun to be cast in the crazy parts; like, the mom on Pride and Prejudice. Or, if Sword in the Stone ever became a live-action, I could totally play Madame Mim. I would LOVE that.

I think I would want to work in TV, as a writer for a comedy show or sitcom. Like 30 Rock. How awesome would that be?

I wouldn't want to be in front of the camera, but I would love the $$! I think I would like writing on comedy shows, like The New Adventures of Old Christine. I love that show.

Scott always talks about someday becoming a video editor in hollywood, ya know, if he ever loses his current job!

Big surprise, but I would love to write. I'd have to get better at it first. . .

I would love the accounting aspect. I find it fasinating that you have to account for permits, salaries, equipment, marketing, intellectual rights, copyrights to name a few. Then you have to analyze the cost verses benefits of getting star A vs star B to spend money on CG or handheld cameras. Then you have to consider craft services, props, costumes, and extras. Those are all costs, so on the flipside we need to look at revenue. Who do you partner with for product placement to bring in more money, what about financial backing, and distribution in movie theaters, DVD's, TV, cable or Internet. If ever I were to leave the Construction busniness and the book publishig business didn't need my accounting expertise, I'd definitely search in the movie production business. Accounting is the language of business and you can learn a lot about your product just by the checks that come in and out.

I would love to be an actress or an editor. I've never done any kind of acting, so I don't know if I would have a talent for it, but I think I would enjoy it. But I know that I love editing. Especially if I had all the fancy tools. That would be a dream job for me. I would also love to be a documentary producer.

Film editor. I'm already so good at it...

I would love to be a writer. Or better yet, the make-up person so I can figure out how to make my face look younger and all tight and puled back :-)

I would love to be a gaffer. I don't know what that is but I like the name gaffer.

There are so many jobs I wish I could do. Screen play writer, casting director (or assistant), caterer (although I dont know how to make deliciousness), make up artist (I hear great things are talked about in those trailors). I think it'd just be fun to be involved somehow. Get to watch how it all happens and help out to make it all work.
Specific movies I'd like to have worked on:
You've Got Mail
Bourne movies
While You Were Sleeping
How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days
10 Things I Hate About You
Willy Wonka
a few television shows (Arrested Development, Boy Meets World, The Office, 30 Rock)
I'd even like to work on animated movies and sit in on the storyboard pitches.
