Of course, I have about four individuals now that have offered me some kind of deal for funding this film now that I have the rights to the novel. But of course, it all comes with "get us a package", and "make sure you have attachments to it". Does everyone have this issue of the triad of doom? i.e. Stars, require money, investors require distribution, and distribution requires stars. I'm assuming a 'funding contingent' is okay to say when I'm talking to agents and managers, but I keep thinking that just is going to make the project seem undesirable. Anyone have any magic beans on getting around this?
