So, what are you waiting for?
Rian Johnson sold LOOPER the same way we’ve sold all of our TV shows and pilots…using great tape to generate excitement.
If you haven’t seen it already, Rian released the “clip-o-matic” tape he put together to help generate interest in his latest box-office hit LOOPER starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon- Levitt.

Then, there’s the rest of us.
You might already be a great editor. Yes? Then you should be soooo happy for you.
If not, maybe you have a best friend or romantic counterpart who is an editing genius and will gladly toil for hours on your passion project or pitch tape idea.
Or, maybe you’re flush with cash and can spend $100 to $300 an hour on a great editor who will polish your project to a sheen.
None of those things true for you?
Then you’ll be editing your project yourself. Daunting, given this simple truth:
Friends said, “don’t do it.”
The lawyer said, “I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you must…”
