Looking at these comments is great. Really motivational for people who have access to a phone, a story and no other gear. For the people here, I recommend the brands “RED” or “ARRI” - I hear their cameras are not too shabby at all. Everyone else, just go do it. Be excited. And do it.
Hey Jacob. Did you... um. So...did you not feel that Parasite featured performers and filmmakers that had voices not commonly represented in Western media?
I wonder if it’s tougher that you don’t know what socialism is or that you’re comfortable commenting on something you didn’t understand. This article was all about Hellerman’s take on the business of filmmaking and if diversity impacts the creative process, therefore impacting box office. Maybe just stick to skimming articles and leave filmmaking at the door.
Also... you don’t think filmmaking is political? Oh boy.
Interesting! Thanks for the reply and best wishes for Summerland!
Thanks for the article! Just wondering if/how you coordinated with SAG for your actors? Or did they get paid as usual?
Thanks for taking the time to write this up, Sidharth. While the genre isn’t really my usual thing, you (and all involved) look like you worked hard on a story that had significance to you and drove you as an artist. And then you decided to share your experience to help others. I’m sorry the first two comments on here from Michael Silvey and Luka Eterovic were rude and dismissive — without seeing the film. As if every great film has also had a trailer we loved? The community here can sometimes be disappointing, but there are plenty that appreciate the advice and experience. I promise you, those comments weren’t left by artists, no matter what their IMDb might look like. I know that as a fact the same way they judged your work without seeing it. But then again. Just one opinion. You can take non-useful feedback and put it on the mountain sized pile with the rest. Congrats on gettin’ it done.
