    Not sure how this is gonna turn out for me, but I figured what the hell why not try anyway. I'm sure for the BHW crowd what I've done isn't all that much but to the ordinary person they cannot wrap their head around it. My friends and other people I talk to are still confused and always interested with what exactly I do.

    So I figured why not solicit my story to some movie production agents? It's a complete shot in the dark and I probably won't receive responses but I'm willing to put myself out there and give it a shot. I'm not gonna just come up with providing a standard treatment or manuscript which is usually the protocol for submissions. So I made a trailer and if that peaks their interests we can start the initial talks.

    It doesn't hurt to try and I'm not afraid of failing. I included the trailer below if you wish to see it. Mind you, I did rip some stuff as I'm not a movie producer and can't exactly shoot a movie in order to produce the trailer, lol. The trailer is based on a true story and I left a couple cliffhangers in there. In a sense, my story isn't finished yet so I guess we'll see which direction it takes me. Obviously I couldn't fit in all my exploits so I used the most profitable and sexy ones. Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think.

    I vouch for VICE, they will def make a documentary about you. :)
    So you've actually had big people going after you?
    Do you only exploit online casinos or something else too?
    How did you learn it?

    Have I been attacked? Yes and no. No in the sense of actually being attacked but yes in the sense of it being planned out. That was one of the cliffhangers as well as the beginning on the vid since my future hasn't been decided yet, etc...

    Currently I'm going through my exploiting phase for the casino industry. Once I'm done with that I'll move onto something else I'm sure.

    As far as learning it goes, don't know...just started picking up a few things and went with it.

    Hey, I say more power to you...

    The only "stupid" ideas are the ones you don't take action on.

    Right on bro! I hope this gets seen where it needs to be seen

    I would give it a watch, but a question is would you actually appear in the film?

    Nice video editing skills, but the truth is if you want to get your story told, you need to go the traditional route - preparing a script, submitting to agents, etc. No one is interested in how well you can edit a trailer from other movies, that's not how movies are usually pitched.

    The fact that i still have no idea how the movie would be about after the trailer is a problem too for agents. An elevator pitch: a true story based on how a kid got 1 million $ for google, or something like that works better for agents.

    Good luck though.

    Not a chance, lol. I'm just taking a shot that somewhere an agent thinks this could be turned into something. They way I look at it, I've already put in the work over the last 7 years and now it's just a matter of whether that would be interesting enough to encapsulate into a movie. I'm just trying to turn this into a money making opportunity...without being on the big screen, lol.

    I totally understand what you're saying and agree with it. But for me I wanted to make it mysterious with what was actually being done, who it was being done to and what the final outcome will be. Not nearly as informative as a manuscript or treatment but I figure how many people pitch movie ideas to them like this. Some may see it as cheesy, others may take to it. Just trying to get my foot in the door with getting that initial conversation going.
