GO BIG

If we are going to go big, lets go real big.

I would buy myself a nifty IMAX camera so I the things we shoot can be played on my OWN IMAX screen at my new home. Everyon's invited. =)

I would prob. make a 4x4 offroad movie with the new camrea and my new black Hummer.

Did someone say Hummer? I just thought of something else I'd spend my money on.

Pay Janet Jackson $5.00 to expose her other breast. She'd do it.

Ok, serious...I don't care to see her other breast. Do you?

World Peace - that's what I would spend money on if I had it.

lol

I'd probably get HD, something like the Panasonic Varicam if I liked the way it looks, and spend all my time producing documentaries that expose the lies and corruption in all areas of political and corporate life.
Oh yeah, and I'd probably get a real car of some sort. I've been driving SUVs since 1985 because I have to haul gear around. With all this money, I"ll hire a driver with his own SUV or van.

(cough) I'm having a hard time coming up with something to say here that won't get instantly deleted by the other moderators.

A Hummer... that's what I'd spend my money on...a Hummer. What did you think I meant?

Dylan, which camcorder did you say you have?

I would help develop grass roots organizations that people, young and old, could come to get training and access to equipment which would enable them to explore their communities and themselves. My money would also insure that local TV stations gave them a place to broadcast, in the very same way that public radio stations do. In short, I would try to help turn mass media into a decentralized instrument of EDUCATION and a forum for global community. And I would be traveling around the globe shooting artful documentaries about people and places and cultures and ideas, to be added to this "community" broadcast. If TV is what most of us are doing with much of our time, these days, then let's DO it. The mission statement of such an organization would be titled with something like

EMPOWERMENT, NOT ESCAPISM

The organization would be an active, fun way to help people reconnect and engage with their senses, in every definition of the word, their environments, their communities, their political systems, their bodies, their spouses, whatever. It would promote filmmaking as a common means of expression, like writing is for journal keepers and unknown, teenage, alcholic poets, not just bestselling novelists.
