In Topic: Teenage Son Wants to Be a Movie Director

21 August 2009 - 02:40 AM

My teenage son wants to be a movie director. This is not an overnight idea. He has adamently headed in this direction since he was 13. Next year (junior year) he will take a video / film class in school. We've also discovered a scholarship opportunity to attend WorldFest Houston (including 3 days of seminars on the film industry geared for students). I am hoping he will be able to go 2010. In the meantime, we are trying to research this as a career. We need to know the ins and outs of the industry (the truth of it), education / internship / apprenticeship expectations, etc. There are a few film schools in our area (Houston), but how do we determine the best route? Any information would be appreciated? What books / dvds would you recommend for a teen to learn more about this as a career choice? We are willing to support him if this is what he really wants, but we want to make sure he knows what his really getting into. Thanks for your help!



dear lisa

i think the best way to show him if hi likes the film industry he should or you both should try to find and go to a real shooting studio or anything alike, even better if he can participate in something, even if its taking the coffe. i think the film industry is all about what we "shoot" not about what degrees we got.

i am glad to hear parents that support their sons profeccion. thats the best thing you can give to him, the rest is up to him

so... good luck and PM me if you have a question

cheers

In Topic: Total newbie needs advice

21 August 2009 - 01:26 AM

Hello forum

first of all I reviewed topics and there are really professionals

I am total newbie in this business, I know finance and business structure of hollywood movie world, but do not know anything about camera and technical stuff

what advice you can give to total newbie

ok first, go and learn, I will but give me path, just brief 10 major steps I should make, I need to learn production, working with camera, pre-production, planning, post production, promotion, anything with film

give me good advice and resources to learn

thanks



hi nick, i think you should start choosing a "path". in my case a chose Production, i am in my 3th year, but in the meantime also al learn a little about everything, you will learn that every part of making a movie conectes with each other in different levels.

making a movie is a "team work" is very important to remember that.
to make a movie you dont need the best camera or equipment, you need the best crew, if they are good then the movie is a instant "hit".

you should try to meet someone in the field so he can give a more personal advice.

don.t know what to add. anyway PM me if you have aquestion

cheers
