Cinema of Attractions

Logline: A satirical party game about pitching blockbuster, spectacle films to Hollywood studios…just like the pros! A party game for the filmmaker in all of us.

Elevator Pitch: 
Have you ever thought to yourself, “I could come up with a better idea for a movie than Hollywood?” Here’s your shot! (Well… sort of.)

“Cinema of Attractions” is a satirical party game from the creators of the Cinelinx card game. In Cinema of Attractions, you are the Filmmaker pitching high concept films to a Studio in hopes of snagging the proverbial Green-Light. No good film has ever started without a great pitch, so you’ll want to be sure to balance your high-concept pitch with solid storytelling.

Production Team:
Gabriel Barboza – Original Concept & Co-Creator
Garrett Perno – Co-Creator
Jordan Maison – Co-Creator

About the Film:
I’ve always loved watching films, studied film in college, and consider myself a cinephile. I had the idea for “Cinema of Attractions” while thinking of some of the spectacle, high concept films that dominate the box office and imagining the pitch sessions it took to get them greenlit. After that, the card game was essentially born.

Current Status: Fundraising for manufacturing.
