This is really fucking ambiguous but lets say;
you got a kick ass script. A few studios wanna buy it from you. You want to direct it. Let’s say you got a decent short film to show you know where to put a camera. And a known good actor not “big mega star” a Tom Cruise but rising talent is attached to the part you wrote for him, say an Alessandro Nivola.

How much backing you think you’d get from a studio?

Every letter in the name represents a number. So the A would be 1 and the Z would be 26. Add up all the numbers together in the person's first and last name then divide it by total number of the first letter of the first name plus the last letter of the last name.

And then multiply all of that by zero and you'll have the total amount of backing (in American dollars) for the project.

whoa you wrote a kickass script and a studio wanting to back you up and you might direct it?  that's so cool.
