I've become more and more convinced over the past few weeks that film school is not the best route. Thanks for the advice. I think what I'll do is go to school for another area while teaching myself about filmmaking/working on my own projects. But just the idea of doing that, even right now I'm so paranoid about getting the shots to look good. Should I be? Should I shoot and come back here for a review and suggestions? Is there a beginner's handbook?
Whenever I'm asked what my favorite 5 or 10 movies are, I probably give a different response each time. But my top 3 always stay the same.
1) Whiplash (will never leave the 1 spot)--Simple, gripping, intense, electrifying-- J.K. Simmons, Tom Cross
2) Drive--Beautiful, favorite movie soundtrack-- Nicolas Winding Refn, Cliff Martinez, Ryan osling
3) Shame--powerful, intimate, SAD, compelling--Michael Fassbender (Best actor in the business today)
Inception--Genius-- Hanz Zimmer
Warrior--touchingly painful-- Tom Hardy, Nick Nolte
Into the Wild--Coming of age, peaceful--Eddie Vedder
Take Shelter--one of the most powerful scenes I've ever seen-- Michael Shannon
The Dark Knight-- Best superhero movie ever-- Heath Ledger, Hanz Zimmer
Zero Dark Thirty--Gripping--Jessica Chastain
Hurt Locker--maybe my favorite war movie-- Jeremy Renner, Kathryn Bigelow
Blade Runner/Under the Skin--2 favorite sci-fi films
thanks alot everyone
how would i go about "finding" indie film makers?
