you will love and benefit  from this weekend:Preview Changes The reason is that we will accelerate your film progress  and a whole world of film opportunity will open up for you that would not have been there before. Hi my name is Colm O'Murchu from International Film Base.  In one Weekend, I will teach you how to make your own profitable professional short film.  This is the very best investment you could make in your future film career and I guarantee it with our money back promise. Spend one weekend with me and your film career will change dramatically for the better.  Let me tell you about my films.  We have recently produced.  the micro budget and very profitable feature film The Makeover which won Best Comedy Drama at the New York City Film Festival. This film has sold to Pay TV in Europe and to American Pay TV released by the American Film Company, Breaking Glass Films. Here is the trailer. The above 93 minute feature film was made on less than $50,000. For a feature film that is a very small budget and what that means is that it does not take very many sales to make the film exceptionally profitable. With American Pay TV and European Pay TV, this film has become a winner. I have now taught up and coming emerging and beginner film makers since 1997. That is 14 years of teaching experience,  instructing film makers how to break into one of the most glamourous careers. And we have had so many success stories. Imagine making festival wining films that get seen all around the world and on top of that make you money. Over the past 14 years, I have worked on music videos, documentaries or feature films or behind the scenes films on big feature films and I have to tell you the lifestyle is awesome.  Next month I am going to Doha in Qatar, Dublin ,London where I present the London Weekend Film School that you are reading about.   Then I am off to  Paris and Singapore on a film work-related trip. Then I am back to Australia for the Brisbane Weekend Film School and home to Sydney for the film premiere for "Dealing with Destiny"  In November , I will visit   Los Angeles and attend the American Film Market in Santa Monica and film meetings in Mexico. ( it is a hard life!!) My current feature film "Dealing with Destiny" is due for release in the cinemas in September 2011. On this film I was hired to direct and I was paid a very reasonble fee plus share of profits. The Film was made for $1 million dollars. Here is an interview I did with Jonathan Coleman. So how can you make a profitable short film or feature film. Attend our Weekend Film School
