Dear Mrs Amazon,

I would like to apply for your super cool movie making thingy, where you give me loads of money to arse about with my friends and a Canon 7D. I have heaps of ideas, most of which have giant robots in them. Please pick one:

  • Gilly Whillikers and the Backyard Bandit
  • The Creature from Radiation Lake
  • Zombie Wombats
  • Murder at Mistry Manor
  • Star Defenders
  • April Tenth and the Eternity Police

Yours sincerely
