Andrew Saladino macht auf Vimeo einige der besten Film-Videoessays überhaupt, seine letzten beiden über „Images that last“ und „Lessons for the No-Budget Feature“ fand ich nochmal speziell großartig:
What are the single cinematic images that have lasted in your memory, the ones that you go back to and think on again and again for no clear reason? Why do those images make the impact that they do? Do they mean anything on some sort of grander level? These are questions I think about from time to time, and I want to discuss them alongside a few memories of my own to help illustrate.
In the late 1980s and 1990s, there was a great movement in independent cinema of no-budget filmmaking that was the beginning for some of the most successful and popular filmmakers of the current day. Let's take a look at five features from that movement and see what lessons we can learn on how to make a great film with as little money as possible.
