Hollywood Lies - Raising movie seed money

by Angela

We're planning to play Hollywood Lies next week. I've been reading through the information but I'm puzzled about one thing.

The movie producers need £100,000 to fund the movie. They start with much less than this and also need money to buy charity ball tickets. Where do they get the rest of the money? Do people pay them to be in their film?

My response:

Yes, the producers do not have enough money at the start of the game to do everything that they need to do. So they will need to wheel and deal...

The most likely way they will do this is to get the people in their film to contribute to the seed money (it's likely that they won't have any in-game reason to keep the money anyway).

But I would think of it as "investing" in the film...

I hope that helps.
