brielarson: You don’t need a fancy camera to tell your story. Get your friends, use a camera phone if you have it, and mess around. We need you. We can’t change this industry without you. Let’s compile a list of free or cheap resources so you can make a film for as little $$$ as possible. I know public libraries sometimes have films you can check out, Apple products come with imovie(that’s how I learned how to edit), tons of websites have royalty free music you can download to score, or have a friend record something live! Dustin and I used household objects to create our score for Weighting(you can watch on Vimeo). Post below other ways you can make a film. Do you know any facilities that let you check out cameras and computers?
Naturally Native (1998) dir. Jennifer Wynne Farmer, Valerie Red-Horse
Three Native American sisters decide to try to sell a line of cosmetics they call Naturally Native, based on old tribal remedies, only to have to fight an uphill battle with racist business people. The film is actually Red-Horse’s comment on her fight with the movie industry to get her films made and this film is the first to be totally financed by an Indian tribe, Connecticut’s Mashantucket tribe. [watch on vimeo]
We were also able to watch the Melbourne premiere of a Very Cool new documentary about frogs in the wet tropics of Australia by Jack Breedon (@meet_me_underwater Instagram) and Harrison Warne (@harrisonwarnephotography Instagram)
From today it is available for everyone to watch on Vimeo! 🐸
