MATHIAS T. SAFARI to JOHN E. WORDSLINGER and THE POETRY TRAIN

 

MATHIAS T. SAFARI to JOHN E. WORDSLINGER and THE POETRY TRAIN

John poetry is a non commercial genre.
If you want, Let’s develop a comedy show.
The world train series allows to commentate on the global events….

If it’s poetry the way it is… Quicksand!

You will drive a jaguar from the comedy series.
Once it’s comedy… Million dollars will follow.

The words Poetry Train would be hailed as an invention…
You even don’t need to be funny. Even a cam recorder can do it.

John in that case, we kind of abandon the poetry route.
The Andy, Redd, And Boet can stay, but if it’s focusing on poetry per se…
Then it’s a dead end!
So which route are we talking
With comic scripts, you won’t go for Hollywood
It will come for you!

It’s going to get off as so big a show that you will fight to keep people out
Conceive everything, start with the comic scripts
Reorient yourself

Funding is not…
Talent is. Sweating is.
Self belief is
A cam recorder is enough

And see how to introduce yourself…
With a funny accent? Johnny Italiano? Mexicano?
Senor John I? etc?
With some hot social satire and jokes,
you can even enter politics at a later stage
Just work on the idea and get the set done
Fuck the investors, cam recorders are enough
You are the producer please,,,
It’s time for flying, protect your wings…

Okay my dear producer 🙂
I wish it appears moving….
A rickety bus can do
In between, anything to distract audiences can do…
Let it look like Austin powers
… With those animations
Don’t look for expertise…
Experts will suck life off every thing.
Spontaneous improvisation

The actors could need like 10 others sitting in the back ground.

Get the script idea to be shot… And we see.
I need to see what to add.
How do we simulate a bus to look like a train?

Head scout the core John, long time projects stall with personality crashes…!

The idea is being able to rehearse, and let it be the group you can dominate
That’s the most important.

The right team will come along, your train concept is solid.
Keep fishing, throw those back to the sea if they aren’t worth it…

  2. Yes, I’ll search Poetry E Train. Stay safe.
