They did more.
Who is talking about this? Some people have too much time on there hands while real actors are working at FOX, NBC etc.

HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Oh my God, please let this thread go on forever.

More shills! More broken English! More hilariously obvious lies!

Come on, Berenika. You can do it!

Not sure what's more tragic:

The obvious troll Aleksandra, or the people in this thread who's feeding the troll.

I'm gonna go with the latter.

I think it's the former; I hope people read this and get a reality check because many people will still pay to be in a movie no matter how much light is shed on the scam.

Wow, five pages!

This officially makes this thread the most popular and entertaining thing ever created by Magic Elevator.

Good for you^^^. You took a risk, went a different way and it worked! I still would not reccomend this to the majority of actors as many dont know how to judge a script or have money for their own entertainment lawyer.20 grands is still a really low budget to work with if your paying people and adding a star. Also producers put up their money, executive producers fundraise money. Tom cruise puts major money into his movies but he makes sure he gets a very good percentage back. There is also a difference between gross and other types of profit. The one stated in your contract makes the difference beftween getting your share and getting screwed. A lot of directors have gotten screwed by contracts and made zilch on high grossing films.


Laugh when people try to take you as a fool.

That is reason we have the trailers. See Jaguar trailer, Painkiller trailer. This is best acting!

Whoa, dude! Who was chick Aleksandra? I mean she is not with the Magic Elevator at all, right? I mean real like crazy, right?

But true is that I have worked with the Magic Elevator and I have made couple great movies and got back my investment and even made some money (not million dollars but it is fun).

Best part I already have the working film credit and the CAA agency just have signed me in last week. It is all true. Why don't you all stop being bitter and jealous and take chance?

Okay, film producer, I'll take a chance and put up $10K on this film, if you tell me your real name, who your agent at CAA is, and if you can if you can actually write a posting with correct English grammar and composition.

Is that possible? Oh, wait, probably not, Aleksandra.
