This film is a brilliant lesson!, 4 December 2013
Author: Horse_Caulk from United Kingdom

I wish I could give it more stars, but it's so entry-level-bad that it would be dishonest. I do, however, see a place for this film, as a motivational icon for young untalented film makers.

YOU TOO, CAN MAKE A FILM! ...is what it loudly boasts.

Not by yourself, of course. You'll need help. But, no matter how little talent you might actually have, worry not. It can still be done.

And, can this be said about anything else? Not really. Woodworkers who suck, will starve to death. Car mechanics, plumbers, pilots. There really aren't too many career choices which you can be successful at without truly knowing your craft well.

But with "the arts", oh yes! And most especially, making films.

Firstly, surround yourself with others who also wish to make films. Writers, producers (hey, not having talent is what most producers are all about anyway), and a barely-competent crew. With all the drive and motivation this group will generate, the rest is relatively easy.

Now comes the part which does indeed require something other than motivation to make a film...skill. The skill of financing your bad project. And it is indeed a skill. As I've written before, it doesn't exactly take herculean skill to find investors for a screenplay that is spectacular, or that has some star power behind it. You can almost afford to be choosy if you are lucky enough to be in that position. But to finance a horrid and studenty little film? Now THAT, takes skill.

If you can get money from people you aren't related to, for a project which is beyond dreadful, you might end up a successful producer in the future. You clearly know how to separate people from their money.

Just do it! Write it, find the money, cast it, shoot it. You can do it! And by "It", I mean a bad film.

If you, however, wish to make a decent, or even good film, that is another road altogether, which cannot simply be accomplished with enthusiasm, motivation, and basic skills. That...is where the vast difference between skills and talent becomes unmistakably apparent to even the most casual film viewer.

At least this wasn't a zombie or found-footage film, the two biggest talent-crutches which exist. It gets an extra star for not stooping that low.
