Very Helpful Box Set
8 April 2006 | by widescreenfilmsSee all my reviews

I've made several short films and am venturing into feature film territory. Even though I thought I knew everything there was to know about making and selling films (at least on a small level) I am the first to admit I was wrong. I'm a long time fan of Troma and picked up both the 'Make Your Own Damn Movie' book by Lloyd Kaufman and then the DVD set mainly because I was just a fan. I was surprised that I learned quite a bit. The documentaries give you a good idea of how hard it is to make a movie and the interviews give you a lot of good tips when it comes to selling your film. My main gripe would be that some of the interviews were done using the camera microphone so on some of them it was hard to hear all of the audio.

If you're looking for something on the art of film-making then there are plenty of other places to look. If you're looking for something that gives you a good idea of the hard work that goes into making and selling movies then I highly recommend this set.
