The Tribeca Film Festival and American Express recently sponsored a “My Movie Pitch” competition asking aspiring filmmakers to film their one-minute movie pitch, the winner gets his or her idea financed. More importantly, Asylum recently went digging for some of the worst of the contest entries, and they. Are. Godd*mn. Amazing. Above, you can watch the pitch for “Gesundheit.”
“First think: what’s the one thing that everyone has done in their life? And that’s atchoo, sneeze. In this movie, that’ll get you killed. Um… I mean, it’s crazy… It’s gonna take place around March, April, so it’s gonna be, like, allergy season… people are gonna start sneezin and dropping. Like flies. …It’s like a complete disaster movie, but this time… it’s kinda biological.”
“GESUNDHEIT: This time… it’s kinda biological.” Speedbag my tits, that is a fantastic tagline. That tagline is so good it could raise Don LaFontaine from the dead. Meet me after the jump for more.
I’m pretty sure this guy just adapted his idea for website where you rate contractors into a movie pitch, but if he acts the whole thing out with cats, I’m into it.
Ten bucks says this guy is a FilmDrunk commenter.
