Daytime editor, nighttime filmmaker
I like this guy. I think he’s a great filmmaker in a sense that he’s able to carve out interesting stories from his genre and when he doesn’t, he bounces back from a failure without drama. Simple, effective, down to earth. If I had a chance to talk to him about filmmaking in person, I would do it in a heartbeat.
hey Geoff, you might want to check out Brandon Li's video then. It's all about having minimal gear with this cam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvcOr_jE3OU
Hey NFS Team, when can we expect this: "Soon we'll post a list of ones our editorial staff and team of writers feel highlight specific skills or techniques."?
Surprise! They forgot to tell it in the interview... Although it's Oscar, BAFTA or "similar" so there's a silver lining.
Hey, Zander, many thanks for the answer! I think your work should be part of the budget... It's actually one of the most valuable assets, not just during the shoot or post but writing also. Although the budget of my short made with the BMPCC & a C-mount lens was under £100 and I have never counted my days of work in. :) That would multiply the cost and ruin the essence of the core message. There, there... I am in conflict with myself. :))
I have connected through Instagram, attilaishere. I am in London, hope we can get a cuppa when the lockdown is over if you're near.
I'll watch the film over the weekend.
Hey Zander & Elliot, congratulations! Chuffed to bits to hear about Cosmos here on NFS, it's been in my Amazon watchlist for a while, so I guess no more excuses to watch it! :) I think inspiration-wise this is one of the best low-budget filmmaking stories, also it's a personal favourite because I use the original BMPCC too here in the UK and made a short sci-fi with it. So I am with you 100%. There is one thing I miss though, it's not just you but indie filmmakers rarely count their energy and time into the budget. Having worked 18 months only on the sound effects makes me wonder if it was the most cost-effective thing to do? And that's just the foley... Now you have had this experience, what are your thoughts on this? I hope you don't mind me asking. Best, Attila
