I had to look him up after reading your comment.
I have no doubts about the superiority of human beings who go to the whorehouse you mention, over useless pigs like you.
Please don't listen to idiots. I loved reading your report. Your prose is lyrical and insightful I like that you have a social consciousness. I also agree with your point about brevity in a cinematic work.
It's sad to see useless, ignorant, egotistical and hateful fanboys hijack NFS with their vitriol. Maybe wonderfully written articles like these don't belong here.
Thanks so much for the article, Renée! It's super helpful since I've just finished my film. It'll be so awesome if you could do a regular roundup of prestigious upcoming festivals and broadcasting opportunities for documentary films!
Justin, thank you so much for talking about Bresson. I've discovered so much more about him than I thought I knew. For me, he's the most important filmmaker ever, apart from Kiarostami. Thanks again.
If you look at statistics, falling in love is an impractical idea. But you fell in love with cinema nonetheless. That's the first and the most important thing.
For a course, I'd suggest you study organic farming or a related field and read books in your free time. Philosophy, literature, film books etc.
Watch a lot of films. Again and again.
After a few years, buy a cheap camera when you think you might want to explore your voice and start making some films. After that, you won't need advice from anyone.
However if your main goal is to succeed commercially, that's a different topic/path altogether.
