So immediately after seeing Brendan Schaub run away from Cyborg for 20 minutes, the folks running Metamoris needed to win back the crowd.... QUICKLY. So instead of waiting until AFTER the intermission, they decided to immediately announce the Headliner for Metamoris 3, Royler Gracie vs. Eddie Bravo (needless to say it won the crowd over tenfold.)
For those of you that don't know the story, in 2003, Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie fought at Abu Dhabi. Royler Gracie was winning the match on points, but with thirty seconds left in the match Bravo caught Gracie with a triangle choke (It was the first time that Royler had been submitted in competition to someone his size.)
For ten years, Eddie has Lobbying to get a rematch with Royler to prove that he didn't get lucky. At Metamoris 3 the rematch will be here. Needless to say... I'll be there for this one.

I go through a lot of the message boards and once upon a time, I was shocked at the pure ignorance of some of its users. The mass majority feel that this coming Sunday at Metamoris, UFC Heavyweight Brendan Schaub is going to get destroyed when he takes on Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu at Metamoris 2. I find myself in shock that people are overlooking the two key human aspects of this match-up.

Whether you think that Chael Sonnen belongs in the UFC (after two not-so-great performances) or not, one thing that I think that we can all agree upon, is the fact that Chael is always willing to step-up as a last minute replacement, when no one else is quite up for the task. This is the prime example of why we have seen in the Octagon fighting for UFC Gold on 3 separate occasions and if he defeats Shogun on August 1st, I wouldn't be the least surprise to see him get one more title shot against Jon "Bones" Jones.

I just want you guys to do the math real quick... you are planning on shooting a Feature Length Film for $10k or under... this means that you are probably going to have to hire some people to work for free. This means that right off the rip, the project is going to lack a certain level of quality, also you're going to encounter multiple headaches... I'm here to guide you through so that you can keep SOME of your sanity after completing production on your first feature. Before I tell you the characteristics of who NOT to hire, you first need to know WHO to hire.

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, I have said the term YOU'RE A BUSINESSMAN FIRST AND AN ARTIST SECOND ... well I haven't been entirely truthful with you, actually... you are a Businessman First, a WHORE second, and an artist/film maker third. Getting your 90 minute straight-to-internet masterpiece written is only just the beginning of your journey, now that it is complete... now you need to get the budget in play for you to shoot the fucker.
This is the part that typically kills the average "film-student"... getting requires you to go through a magnitude of abusive pimps before you find your prince charming (remember the whore thing?) To warn you right now, you are going to run into A LOT of the following.
