Legendary AD, will be required viewing for film students from now on.
22 June 2016 | by stickwacker1See all my reviews

Learning from the experiences of others is a great way to learn any vocation but it's mandatory in filmmaking. Making great films is an art but it's also an industry and as with any industry there are nuts and bolts that have to be put together to produce a finished product. Legendary AD is a documentary that explores the art and the manufacturing of movies through the experiences of Assistant Directors that took words from scripts, played them out in reality,and captured them on camera. There is tremendous insight to be gained from the recounting of how these AD's crafted some of the most entertaining movies ever made. It's really a remarkable documentary. In the spirit of full disclosure, I was an Associate Producer and backer of the project but that should tell you how much I believe in the film and it's importance to the history of filmmaking as well as it being an invaluable resource and teaching tool for film students and future legendary filmmakers.
