If you haven’t already come across the Periodic Table of Storytelling let me introduce you to a brilliant storytelling resource…

Storytelling Website ScreenShot

Check it out here.

There seems to be this on-going debate over whether making short films is good for your career or a waste of time and money.

Some fun facts about the Australian screen industry…

I’ve been M.I.A. for a while now because my blog decided it didn’t want to publish anything. But I believe I’ve finally fixed it so there’ll be more posts to come.

Anatomy of Films

 

This graphic reminds me of those movie poster pictures that circulated social media a while back. Remember those? The ones that showed how movie posters from the same genre are practically identical. If not, you can check it out here.

Robert Rodriguez is often considered that filmmaker to emulate, especially when you are (ironically enough) in film school and shooting low-to-no budget films. Despite his obvious disdain for film school, Rodriguez gives up some of his time to teach you how to make a low-budget film the easiest way possible.

With this YouTube clip which is currently making rounds on social media, I find an air of affectation in Rodriguez that you could typify with Hollywood, yet you would not expect from a filmmaker who seeminly denounces Hollywood and all it’s lack of soul.

Nonetheless, there is so much interesting information said very very quickly. Yes, it is slightly out-dated as technology has advanced and I do wonder if you have no film education at all whether this would just leave you with even more questions. But I still think it’s a worthwhile watch.

I hope you enjoy…
