TV For Film Makers


« All quiete on the Cannes Front… | Main | US Indie Guerilla Film Makers... Literally! »

May 17, 2009


Chris - thanks for posting this video. Very helpful. Haven't been to Cannes yet. Is it a better market for independents than Sundance or Toronto?

Thats what it all comes down to Nothing more than business. I loved the bit where (Chris) was walking towards the paramount room. The odds completley against you. Spielberg Lucas around somewhere. This time with possibly ten projects to hand, ready to go. Who knows, will fate step in? At least thats what I'd be thinking. Riveting real life stuff. A bit of a rollercoaster I felt. I don't think I would enjoy this in fact Im sure I'd feel like a fish out of water unless I was higher up in the heirachy. Then its different. But behind the glitz and glamour its all just a business A ruthless one at that and selling your product. The realisation that I will lose money if I made a film and would get ripped off. And yet there is within us a chance to overcome all the odds and to bring down the walls..

    About Chris

    I am just like you. Passionate. Crazy mad. For movies that is. Can’t get enough. Watching movies. Making movies. Talking about movies. Drives my girlfriend Lucia nuts! So yep. Passionate, crazy and mad. And yes, I am a little schizo too. Thing is, I love making films as much as I do teaching film making. Hence, Make Film, Teach Film. I have spent my life making films and sharing what I have learned with those who, like me, have been infected with the 'film virus'... I've made three feature films, action thriller ‘The Runner’, serial killer thriller ‘White Angel’ and paranormal horror ‘Urban Ghost Story’. I also co-created and authored The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series, and currently there are six editions! Most recently, I made the multi-award winning and Oscars shortlisted ‘Gone Fishing’. I run film making workshops and my offices are at Ealing Film Studios where I am currently plotting my next big adventure…
