Question by SpankRamen: Becoming An Independent Filmmaker?
I have always wanted to become an independent filmmaker, but I’m not exactly sure how or where to begin. Are there any filmmakers or film students than can give me any really good advice?
Answer by special-chemical-x
My advice is that unless you have such a burning desire for it that you are willing to take a 90% chance you will end up broke, don’t go for it.
There are plenty of books that recommend how to go about this. But for the amount of books out there telling how, I would expect many more filmmakers than are out there. I suspect that to really get in the business you have to know or bl$ % someone.
