I think attracting people to your project is mainly to do with how much fun it sounds like to do. But different movies are appealling to different people. For instance I've written a lot of Clerks style comedies, and none of them ever got made, because although I could attract actors, getting a crew together to take it seriously...these talking heads style comedies, well thats how they saw it anyway...was hard. And besides it takes good actors to do comedy...really good actors. I didn't make them because I didn't have faith in the people I had assembled or the people I could get to do them. Crew wise I just couldn't generate the excitement, they all meant night shoots, and were going to be logistically too complicated for them to justify for what were basically dialogue driven comedies. All these different crew people were trying to get me to rewrite it into something else entirely just to make it easier for them...so I pulled the plug.

So now I've gone the other way, I'm making a gory action movie. Now although I thought my previous comedy scripts, had really good stories, this one is cheesy and stupid at best, but everyone really wants to be a part of the crew for this one, and no one really wanted to be a part of those, regardless of whether they found them funny or not. I guess it also helps that I know a lot of sword fighters. But still those that aren't are just really excited about doing a gory action movie, (probably, because of the sword fighters) regardless of the part they will play, or that it will mean weeks of night shoots and will be extremely logistically complicated to film. From the time I first mentioned the idea, I've had to work doubly hard, to keep up with the excitement of everyone else so that it keeps momentum and doesn't just fizzle out, which is always a danger when no ones getting payed.

Its all a stepping stone though, this isn't a feature, its a short feature and will probably struggle to make it to the hour mark. Hard to market I know, but its more intended as a showcase so I might be able to attract funding to my more ambitious comedy action horror feature script. I guess there in lies the insentive for everyone, a chance to eventually one with funding, and I guess they trust that I'll do a good job, or at least they're happy to give me the benefit of the doubt.

How ever it turns out though, this is really going to be an adventure and I'll finally be able to justify that film making course I did all those years ago.

I lost the film making bug when i discovered how political it was and expensive (though this was before digital editing and cameras became the norm); now i think its too easy and there's a lot of crap to wade thru to find good stuff.

but the real point of this post is I'm guessing the Producer wanted to pay for a stunt director because it removes the liability of any accidents happening to talent from them and onto the Stunt Director (especially if the SD is qualified).

Not sure I agree with you on those values you've attributed to those other careers, (humanity survived several million years without mechanics or neurosurgeons), but whatever, I guess the guy who wrote it should have picked equally "worthless" jobs to compare...
You could play his game with hairdressers, real estate agents, fast food workers... it goes on and on. But the same thing would happen in a real estate agency as down at the local brain-surgeon's I'm guessing-- kindly asked to leave!

And as to JT...

When people realise I'm a Chartered Accountant I usually get asked a tax question or two. I've had many occassions where someone wants extensive advise on some comlex tax problem they got themselves into, when all I really wanted was another beer.

People always want something for free. Me included.
