The Indie Film World Needs 100 Amanda Palmers

Great article and openness to the modern world of digital communication for creative souls.

a-bittersweet-life:

There is a compromise made if you work on a commercial film and the compromise really isn’t how or what you do, the techniques you use, or even the content, but really the compromise is beginning to feel a lack of confidence in your innermost thoughts. And if you don’t put those innermost thoughts on the screen then you are looking down on not only your audience but the people you work with. And that’s what makes so many people working out there unhappy. They say: “Well, I’ll make a lot of money and then I’ll come back and do this later on.” The truth of the matter is, of course, that they never do. These innermost thoughts become less and less a part of you, and once you lose them you don’t have anything else. I don’t think anyone does it purposely. It’s just that a lot of people are not aware of losing those things. I found myself losing them too, and then suddenly I woke up by accident, by sheer accident of not getting along with something, with something inside.

theparisreview:

Watch Wim Wenders’s documentary Room 666, shot during the 1982 Cannes Film Festival and featuring interviews with film directors Jean-Luc Godard, Paul Morrissey, Susan Seidelman, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and Werner Herzog. Each director was given approximately eleven minutes (one film reel) to talk. The principal question asked was, “Is cinema a language about to get lost, an art about to die?”

Long-lost Orson Welles film found in Italy

Looking forward to seeing this work from the acclaimed master director. #film #orsonwelles #director
