Wow those are great photos Laura :)

 

As for myself I am film maker (Ok mostly student films however I am looking to branch out in the next couple of years and maybe do some films independent within the UK) I did get one film put on You tube so here it is again

Currently I am working getting a different actress to do the voice over for it. Also cause there has been new members join well you guys can see and judge for yourself.

 

Also i have written some basic songs out however due to not getting a chance to record anything which is a shame.

Although I really have nothing to show for it right now, I am a radio presenter/producer. I write scripts, produce commercials, jingles and idents, present and produce shows, and generally just criticise everyone else for being so sh*te at it whilst I ignore my own shortcomings.

 

I will have actual examples soon.

I, like Al, am a film maker but have only made student films. I'll be hoping to get my first short film, which will consist of many Grindhouse style trailers, made in the summer. This is the only video that I've worked on that's on youtube. I produced, directed, edited and partly shot, I had a cameraman do most of the work at first, when he bothered to turn up:

It's alright, I guess, alot better than the stuff I've had to work on with others, mainly as no other student I know likes to think outside of the box, and always goes for a straightforward approach to filming... I'm hoping to improve before I go ahead and make my first "serious" film, though.

I wouldn't really worrying about having to improve Reno, I found out that once you have worked on a few short films (around five or six) your going to find your element of story telling and all that. After all it's about practice (do you think some of the top directors ever walked out of film school and made master pieces? (Cue DC to shoot me down in a blaze of glory :lol).

 

Also some times its very important to work outside of the box after all the directors job (which I am assuming you want to do) is about being to get from one point of the narrative to the end of the act with some times having to change so of the direction of the film.

It's ok mate, we have plenty of examples of your shortcomings :D

That'll change come Uni, where everyone thinks they're "outside the box". I've seen videos from friends, Uni peers, at least one ex and a couple of Youtube vids from strangers where they think they're the second coming on Tarantino and it's so contrived and stupid that it comes off as less "outside the box" and more outside the great town of Decentville, instead residing in rival city Sh*tcreek. There are few things I hate more than student productions (in most cases - some, like Al's video, are really good) trying far too hard. Right now, for instance, I'm getting AIDS just from listening to a student radio station at my old Uni because they're even trying too hard or just talentless. Sometimes, straightforward and simple is the best route to take.

A lot of the greats didn't even go to film school.

 

Tarantino made his first movie (Reservoir Dogs) after writing the script in three-and-a-half weeks. He also wrote 'Natural Born Killers' and 'True Romance' (one of my favourite films), as well as directed 'Dogs' with no film-school training.

 

Christopher McQuarrie wrote 'The Usual Suspects' with no formal training and Bryan Singer directed it after having only made one other movie ('Public Access' - an underrated movie that was also written by McQuarrie) with the former having no schooling.

 

Steven Spielberg tried to get enrolled into a film classes at university but was refused because his average grades were too low. He shot his first full-length movie ('Duel') with no formal training and only the experience of working on single episodes of Universal television shows.

A lot of people didn't get qualifications. Neil Buchanon was told he was sh*t, and went on to do Art Attack. Chris Moyles dropped out of school and became Radio One Breakfast Show host. Charlie Brooker dropped out of Uni before his final assessments.

 

People overrate higher education for the arts and media. In fact, most media professionals tell you that a degree will actually hurt your chances of getting a media job.

when I'm not preparing lessons or writing essays I see myself as something of a writer. I've had a novel on the backburner for about 3 years now (as I know many others have) that I just dont have the time to finish. I've also had a few things published but nothing major. I'm hoping to get a novel published one day, that's my ultimate goal.

That's why I'm dreading going to Uni, I couldn't even sit through most of the stuff shown at our Media showing last year, and I can barely watch my own stuff without thinking "oh god, why the hell did I do that?" I've only seen a couple of student productions that have actually been good, Al's for example (he sure is getting a lot of praise :lol).

Don't forget Stanley Kubrick, he was a college drop out and hadn't picked up a book to read for fun until he was 19. He went on to make some classics.

Peter Jackson has no formal film making training and learned pretty much everything he knows about editing, directing and producing via trial and error on a Super 8 cam making stop motion and splatter movies and he has 3 Oscars under his belt now so I wouldn't worry too much about Uni etc Reno!
