CINEPHILIA and FILMMAKING

“MY FILMMAKING EDUCATION CONSISTED OF FINDING OUT WHAT FILMMAKERS I LIKED WERE WATCHING, THEN SEEING THOSE FILMS. I LEARNED THE TECHNICAL STUFF FROM BOOKS AND MAGAZINES, AND WITH THE NEW TECHNOLOGY YOU CAN WATCH ENTIRE MOVIES ACCOMPANIED BY COMMENTARY FROM THE DIRECTOR. YOU CAN LEARN MORE FROM JOHN STURGES’ AUDIO TRACK ON THE ‘BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK’ LASERDISC THAN YOU CAN IN 4 YEARS OF FILM SCHOOL. FILM SCHOOL IS A COMPLETE CON, BECAUSE THE INFORMATION IS THERE IF YOU WANT IT.” P.T.
