Deadly serious, told a few people i work with and they all liked it. I'm no writer so couldnt write a script but you must be able to do something with the idea?

you will need to pitch to someone in the 'business'

Try contacting a professional film writer. Look for a film you liked the story of, and then find out who wrote it. Then see if you can contact them. Plus try and see if you can slip in a HUKD logo or banner into the mix :p

I would also be interested.

We accidently came up with a film idea in the pub the other week. As a joke I then designed the DVD cover art and now myself and best friend are desperate to produce it. We are looking to script it over the next couple of months, whilst I have suggested my brother create an ambient soundtrack.

The synopsis on the rear is only a rough draft. What does everyone think?

DVD Cover: Click for large version.

I've got visions of that film 'I want Candy' or those Orange ads!!!!!

Also make sure you keep the idea to yourself. Someone may try and steal it and end up making all the money that would have been yours. Not everyone is as nice as the people on HUKD

Put an ad in the back of The Daily Sport to get your cast, rent some cameras for the day from the local Cash Converter, book a hotel room for the night, sorted. The script'll just write itself.

Funding is probably the major obstacle.
I went to school with a wannabe director who I easily managed to track down through Google - he appears to have worked and assisted on a lot of films over the last few years.

My younger brother is a musician and sound engineer, plus one of my clients at work has contacts in theatre and television and seems highly regarded by the BBC :)

Go on what´s the story........

Go to [url]www.mandy.com[/url] and post an ad for a lo/no pay script writer, then a distributor (see if you can pitch it to them), then a casting director, cast, crew and some audio guys, then a composer, then a post production team, then when you have all that, do the film circuits and keep your fingers crossed as tightly as you can. Schmooze with big-wigs at low-budget premieres of films (these are often on at the Curzon-Renoir theatres in London- a very handy place to meet some invaluable contacts!), and check out the industry mags. IMDB Pro would also help, as you get the directory for business contact info, which will include distributors, agents, marketing, investors etc. Now when you have made your first million, you owe me it :)

As i have had some decent advice, here's a snippet of my intro.......

Its a friday, man goes to work in a office, likeable, flamboyant & outgoing personality, makes the days goes quicker etc., gets train home, nice house, adoring wife, friends round and generally a perfect weekend off.
Wakes up monday (no one in), goes to work as normal but is late so flags a taxi and is preoccupied with trying to fix his phone (weird texts, error messages, unheard of network) unaware of whats around him, gets to work, different company name, different work colleagues but everyone knows him, thinks he must be dreaming but doesnt wake up, sees through the day, goes to pub @ lunch, different name, different staff, different drinks & food, but everyone knows him, gets train home (different station name). Walks home from station, Different shops, streets etc. Gets home, different house, car, wife and friends.........

I'll leave it there. Intrigued?

And dont think Matrix, Life On Mars, Back to The Future etc.!!!!

My ideal lead cast would be depending on Hollywood or Brit Flick would be Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma) or Danny Dyer. Both would suit the role perfectly.
