To an angel for my film I will deliver the world—

—the world audience, and all that comes with it.

It doesn’t take a wheelbarrow of money. Kiss of Death is a romantic thriller so original, and so attuned to the Twilight market of women and teenage girls, that the return on its tiny budget will be a joy.

Here are a brief overview and an investment strategy. The script, the business plan and a slide show are available on request, and below my smiling face is the way I present myself. I’m in Greece, and my contact details are at the bottom of this page. Call me up and let’s chat.
Robert MacLean was born in Toronto, has a PhD from McGill, taught at Canadian universities till he could no longer stand the cold, lives in Greece, is an Irish citizen and has a London company.

His films win awards. His books are ‘laugh-out-loud tears-in-your-eyes funny,’ to quote a typical review. His plays are performed and published in New York and LA; his stories, poems and articles appear in British, American, Canadian and Japanese magazines; and a book of his essays came out in New York and The Hague. Teaching film at McGill, the University of Western Ontario, the University of Ottawa and the American College of Greece is something he has enjoyed beyond measure. He gives comic poetry readings on both sides of the Atlantic, produces the web series Bunny Poo Salad and presented documentary The Seven Sages of Antiquity.

His short film, having made its fortune, has had seven thousand views on YouTube. His blog The Devil’s Pleasure Garden has had a hundred and sixty thousand views; his Google+ page, a million and a half.
