What do you think of using FF V2 as a pitch tool to gather investors? "Momma always told me, 'Never show a fool a half finished picture." A previsualized project output to Flash file might get closer to helping an investor see what you are talking about.

Traliers have also worked as tools, as will complete budgets, srcipt readings and a miriad of other tricks and techniques but the one thing you should always do is put yourself in their place. Learn to read people and find out what it is they want, what will make them want to give you the money. Ego, philantropy, bussiness fun, bordom. figure it out, then do what ever you can do within your personal ethical limits to convice them YOU are the person they should invest their money with, because YOU will give them what they need to fulfill that want.
I heard Martin Scorsese say in an interview once that there are a lot of people who pitch a better movie in the front office than what they end up making on the set. I paraphrase, but you get the idea. The pitch is almost more inportant than the product. That's not to say you shouldn't try to make great movies, only that without funding, you may not get the chance to make any movies, so take this aspect of filmmaking at least as seriously as you do anything else in your career. just my opionion
