Post by James Evans

"I don't know where to begin…"
"I am afraid that I will fail…"
"My wife is holding me back…"

 

This is just a choice selection of "reasons" that I heard when I attended the 2014 Guerilla Filmmakers Masterclass at Regent's college, London and was asked, "What is stopping you from making your movie?"

So this weekend I received my first Martenitsa from a dear friend. What is Martenitsa? From my understanding (or Wiki’s!) it’s a Bulgarian tradition “of which a small piece of adornment, made of white and red yarn is worn in March” symbolising the wish for good health and luck.

Prior to last weekend’s 2013 edition of the Guerilla Film Makers Master Class, I had never met Chris Jones, nor seen him in the flesh, nor spoken to him over the telephone.

I flew into the UK for the weekend of June 15th and 16th to attend the Guerilla Film Makers Master Class held in Regent’s College, London. Why fly thousands of miles for a weekend of film making discussion when I’ve fallen behind schedule on the rewrite of A Table In Berlin?

DAY ONE


  I’ll be honest: it’s been a long while since I’ve been up this early – especially on a Saturday.

The view from one delegate one year on...

By Andy Carslaw

 

I’ve been following Chris Jones ever since the original Guerrilla Film-maker books. Last year I risked potential divorce by attending his June master-class during my wedding Anniversary. Now one year on, I have a number of film projects on the go. What did the course do for me personally?

Back to life, back to reality...

...Back from planet film. After spending two days and one evening in the company of Chris Jones and hundreds of film makers, I've got the same feeling that I get when I've finished shooting a film. Some of you may know that feeling: Its been hard work, tiring, challenging, educational, energising, inspiring, motivating... and a great reminder of WHY we ride the rollercoaster.

So.
