Insights from talented Filmmakers

What we do

Our mission is to give space and attention to talented Filmmakers through short interviews rich with technical details: our SHOTS. From a personal perspective, with a human touch, interviewed Filmmakers release a glimpse of their vision of Cinema.

 

Our shots are useful to:
– emerging Filmmakers on their way to success eager to learn from talented Filmmakers
– Film Festivals searching for talents to screen at their Events.

 

At the same time we deliver precious information on Film Festivals and the Cinema Industry. We interview professionals to share valuable clues. Filmmakers can benefit from these insights that may result in orientative information.

 

 

A technical note:

Our interviews are based on real voice conversations with rare exceptions of email interviews. The exchange of information is fully authentic.

Every Shot’s layout is similar to that of a Screenplay scene. This is just a wink from writer to reader.

By the way, while writing our Shots we feel McKee’s presence behind us reminding something like:”Oh boy, what’s all that exposition in the opening?”. Or: “Didn’t we agree on measured dialogues?”. Well, these talks are our best lighthearted chance to directly connect readers to Filmmakers. Precious information on Cinema flows free. This is our goal.

 

Long Live Indie Cinema
