My name is Paul Sapiano and I am a DGA director living in Hollywood.
I am in production on my first movie "The Boys' and Girls' Guide to Getting Down", a satirical take on nightlife in LA.
I am posting this because I am in search of a writing partner for my next film.
I am not a christian, but I do believe that on the whole, religious people are more decent than non-religious folks. Of course there are exceptions, but the more time I spend in NY and LA the more I am irritated by the scorn and derision heaped upon religious people, christians in particular, by the hipsters around me. To anybody who disagrees, I ask them to imagine that it's the middle of the night and they are in an alley in S Central. Four men approach (apprehension rises) -but then i ask: would it comfort you to know that those men just stepped out of a bible study class.
Of course the answer is yes, but some of them won't even concede that!
I want to make a pro christian comedy/documentary. I don't know enough about Christian lore to do it myself. This will not be a film for the faint hearted. It will be scathing inidictment of the very people who love to make fun of Christians, and how their turning their backs on decency and values truly affects their lives ina negative way. It will be dark and twisted, merciless and most of all funny. And did I say, commercially viable. I repeat, I am not a christian, but if I can produce a money making film, and do that while going to bat for Christian values, then we all come out winners.
I am currently in pre production on my first movie, and if and when it becomes ssuccesful, I want to have this film ready to go, becasue I do have contacts I can give it to.
Please contact me at Discoman75@mac.com if you are interested in talking to me about this project or if you know anybody who might be .
