Robert Rodriguez Says Your Already A Filmaker

So we all know the story of Robert Rodriguez. He made his first film
(El Mariachi) for about $8000, and he did it all by himself. He’s mastered the art of making a film without money.

This clip was made circa 1993, the video quality is horrible but the message still clear and very relevant.

The only thing standing in the way of you making a film is yourself.

Michel Chion : Sound Advice


It seems I have quite a few followers of this blog whose native language is French. So in the spirit of sharing. The following was sent to me by a colleague. Quoting my French friend below;

“Hi guys, Michel Chion uploaded some of his books (those which are not available anymore) on his website for free : http://www.michelchion.com/

These books are gold for people who are interested in sound, and by the relationship between image and sound.

I think “Le guide des objets sonores” is as well available in English, if you don’t read french.
“Le promeneur Ă©coutant” is a fantastic book. But I am not sure it is available in English”.
