A look inside BACKWARDS: Shooting an independent sports film

Movie Maker Magazine - Tue, 2012-12-11 23:05
When I set out to make my first film, I knew exactly what I wanted to tell: a story about the ambition, sacrifice and choice confronting an athlete competing at an Olympic level. Taking it even further, I wanted to share a story rarely seen in films—that of the athlete who almost makes it to the Olympics but just misses the cut. I wanted to explore how it must feel to give up so much in life and get inches away from personal goal, only to find oneself, ultimately, sitting on the sidelines. Many of us have experienced such personal setbacks in one way or another: what happens in your life when “the big dream” doesn’t work out? How do ambitions and goals change as life intervenes? How much are you willing to continue to sacrifice to reach a possibly elusive goal?

Brad Pitt disappoints everyone, as do Marjane Satrapi and Wong Kar Wai

Movie Maker Magazine - Wed, 2012-12-05 23:21

Apparently, Brad Pitt's reign as a Hollywood superstar is drawing to a close. And with good reason. I mean, what a stupid move, starring in Andrew Dominik's chatty, politically charged hitman thriller, Killing Them Softly, instead of oh, I don't know, something less interesting.

Sundance 2013 Breakdown: What’s in a Logline?

Movie Maker Magazine - Tue, 2012-12-04 19:26
We make snap judgements about which movies we're going to see and not see all the time. Usually when picking out a movie we ask "what's it about?" and then "who's in it?" As in "it's the one where the guy beats people up for information," and "Tom Cruise." In the case of Sundance films, the question is more likely, "what's it about?" and "Who made it?" Here, I'll be making irresponsible judgments of films based only on the log lines and my imdb searches of the filmmakers. I apologize in advance.

WE MAKE MOVIES (BETTER): Giving FCPX another chance

Movie Maker Magazine - Mon, 2012-12-03 22:17
It’s become one of the film world’s great pastimes to sit around and hate on what Apple did with Final Cut Pro X. Upon its launch, you would have thought Apple had come in and kidnapped every editor’s first born child. And, let’s be honest, the FCPX launch was not Apple’s finest moment. I still really believe that if Apple had introduced FCPX as Beta software and not immediately discontinued what was at the time (and in some ways still is) the best edit software on the market (Final Cut 7), people would have been really excited about X’s potential, and would have really enjoyed playing around with it instead of calling it an atrocity and affront to humanity. If it had been a soft launch and not labeled as the greatest thing to ever happen to post-production, people would have happily continued to use FCP7 while playing with X on personal projects (that’s what I did), waiting for the product to mature, and getting progressively more excited about the software's rapid development. This is not what happened.

Just Crowdfund the $&*# Movie!: Hollywood, Wisconsin

Movie Maker Magazine - Mon, 2012-12-03 19:33
By now, you’ve probably read about how Charlie Kaufman (of Being John Malkovich fame) has raised a mind-numbing $406,237 from 5,770 backers for his stop motion feature, Anomalisa, making it the highest recorded amount raised for a film on Kickstarter. WOW. Who would’ve thought that the humble little crowdfunding-engine-that-could would've come so far? Kstarter and Company are truly legit. But is there room for the little filmmakers/film-lovers that have been singing crowdfunding praises for a few years now?

Bill Murray dresses up like John Wayne, and Richard Ayoade does Dostoyevsky

Movie Maker Magazine - Thu, 2012-11-29 16:52
If you're like me, and you probably aren't (count your blessings!), the mention of the name Charlie Sheen is enough to turn you off any announced project. Ugh. But wait. I mean, it's not like he's Donald Trump or something, and he was in Being John Malkovich, even if that role was kind of a non sequitur. Anyway, when you throw in Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Patricia Arquette, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Wes Anderson collaborator (and Coppola) Roman Coppola (who hasn't made a feature since 2001's CQ) as the writer-director, well, I start thinking maybe I can tolerate Sheen for a couple of hours.
