UNMADE FILMS

Films that have not so far materialised into film.

#Unmadefilms

 

UNMADE FILMS  was conceived 25 years ago as a magazine in print. Art house films had a substantial audience at that time but even then screen writers were frustrated by the compromises of the film market. Fewer films get made that go beyond the objective of appealing to teenage boys, who are the essential demographic that provides the yardstick of potential profitability for Hollywood producers, and the British high street Odeon franchise, that is fanatical about profit, but has little interest in cinema. These pages are dedicated to the scripts of films that have not so far materialised into film.  MANIFESTO

What was the point of that cowboy costume?
"I Love Lucy" introduced me to a notion of "love,"

An extremely vivid dream last night.

Where cool is meaningless and

meaninglessness is ever cooler.

1964 was an optimistic time.

The Beatles had conquered America,

and I had passed my driving test
