Zacuto’s FilmFellas

Posted by Brian Paris on Mar 21, 2009 in Blog

Just found Zacuto has a Vimeo channel where they are posting some great webisodes called FilmFellas. It is a lot like Dinner for Five the show on IFC. Instead of Jon Favreau, we get Steve Weiss sitting around talking to filmmakers talking about film making. Good thing about this series is that these are people like me. They have done some good things, but aren’t big time successes that you see on the IFC show.

Check out the first one here and look at the other episodes on Vimeo.

The Director

Posted by Brian Paris on Mar 3, 2009 in Blog

So you want to be the top dog, the film director. This is the guy who is oversees all of the creative aspects of a movie. He has the vision and uses his own talents and those of the cast and crew to bring that vision to light. The director is the manager on set. There are others who assist him and will make decisions in his absence, but the ultimate responsibly comes down on the directors shoulders. Read more…
