14 Hours of Student Flms

May 19, 2006 — Leave a comment

Want to learn about what makes good filmmaking? Be a screener for a festival: Self-Reliant Filmmaking » 14 hours of student films.

The students making the selections want to be filmmakers themselves, and I think they probably learned as much about filmmaking from those 14 hours as they did from any single course they’ve taken. Why? Because they saw more bad films than good ones and, seeing them in such close succession, they saw that bad films often have the same, simple problems.
