I'm Not The Only One Sayin' It...

"...yeah, the DVD in itself is such a powerful force for storytelling, especially as a tool for bypassing a studio and a network and going directly to the audience. That’s a very intriguing concept for an artist."

While I tend to agree (even if IMHO nothing can be compared to prose as far as "unfiltered transmission of content as intended by the author" is concerned), budget is not considered in this statement...or is budget "a false problem"?
That is creativity can overcome any problem linked to the dirty money?
Sorry, very banal consideration...

Would it be a waste of my time to write a D2DVD post-apocalyptic (both nuclear and biowarfare) story that takes place in a radioactive and disease ridden America full of Mad Maxesque tribes?

It's sort of like DAMNATION ALLEY, but in a motor home, and without giant bugs.

It is the next two months of my life, so just wondering if it's worth my time.

Filo: Yes, Budget is a false problem...

Jutra: only you can answer that. What do you want to get out of it?

Would you mind to elaborate on that, Bill?
While I am making my first steps in professional comicwriting, my self-produced attempt at short movies have been rather...ehr...embarassing...I know that blaming exclusively the budget would be an excuse for not making my job properly, but I think that a little more money...well, could have made the difference.

This sounds like a good time to post on "the myth of money = better." I think I've spoken about this before so I'm going to check the archive first.
