Interested in film but


#1

Hey, I just wanted to say that I admire you guys out there who are making movies and creating shit. I, for one, would love to make movies as a career but am bogged down by the pressure my mom puts on me; she insists that I work towards a career in the medical field. I can understand where shes coming from but it sucks hard. O well. Im thinking about renting some equipment this summer and just shoot some fucked up horror movie just for the hell of it. Anyways, thanks for listening to my bitching and whining; didnt know where else I could write this.


#2

a horror movie huh? You gonna try to make it scary or are you just gonna make it gory?


#3

Where do you rent film equipment?


#4

local production companies.


#5

Im probably gonna try to make it gory. Im thinking maybe a zombie movie, romero style. But with my experience, itll probably turn out crappily (is that a word?).



Im probably gonna rent equipment from my friend’s dad, who works for a small film studio in Long Beach, CA. My friend says that his dad supposedly sold film to QT, but i dont believe him.

I’ve made a couple shorts but right now me and a friend of mine are going to make a feature film and send it to Sundance. It’s about this guy who has no idea where he’s going in life and dosen’t what to do with his life. The only thing that he does is hang out with his two weirdo “friends” and smoke pot. He’s parents are bugging about going to school and becoming a lawyer. He does’t really have a hobby although he is a big fan of Resevoir Dogs. What do ya think

I think it sucks… But hey, lots of independent stuff, that doesn’t eventually go mainstream, sucks.


#10

yes, I’ve made quite a few at my young ripe age of 15.


#12

so i’m 14 and is tarted making them when i was like 11


#13

What kind of 14 year old (I was one last week), wants to make a film about a guy who has no life and is struggling with drugs, sorry to say but I think this says mucho about your personality, especially since you’re 14.


#14

fuck you… you don’t know fucking shit about me. I think independant is better because Hollywood these are so phony. If you think yo can do better what are your films about.


#15

I think you’re getting Hollywood and Blockbuster mixed up, can you explain whats so phony about “HOLLYWOOD”?


#16

Independent films are much better! I mean, they are created by people who have a genuine love of films, not some motherfucker who is just wanting too get rich in Hollywood. Most big budget studio films have no soul, they are just consumer-driven bullshit! The audience is like “oohh a big explosion!” or “wow, hot people fucking!”. These movies aren’t films people are gonna remember anyway. If someone wants to make a film, good on them for giving it a go! And if it doesnt work out, you cant take away the fact that," Hey, at least I gave it a go, and lived out a dream of mine by making a film!" Being an Australian, our film industry is quite small, and pretty much survives on independent films, So that may be why I have a love of independent films. I hope more people get out there and start making films.


#17

Fuck that “what’s better” shit. I often look forward to independent films more than Hollywood films, but when a Hollywood film that I want to see comes out I REALLY look forward to it. I mean, Kill Bill wasn’t exactly an independent film, no? The Godfather wasn’t an independent film. Star Wars wasn’t independent. Your mom isn’t independent. Get my drift? Sooooooooooo I agree with you that the stereotypical Hollywood (action) film alot of time sucks, but…there are some really cool Hollywood flicks also.


#18

Yeah man, I know. I am just in a shitty mood today! It’s fucking hot today! Lots of my favourite movies are hollywood big budget films. I just dont like the stupid action, romantic comedies type stuff! thats all! :slight_smile:

This seems to be typical “independent film” sterotypes, and Il Buono could not be more correct.

Ok, but you see those movies like Taxi Driver or Thr Godfather were all made during the 70’s which is when the Film Revolutuion started. During that time period some best movies were made by hollywood. H
