I think that applies to filmmaking in generalfind the two or three other kids that are just as serious as you and as willing to work their asses off(there probably won't be more than two or three) and just make all of your films with them.
I wish I ended up seeing a film from someone that I knew that was worth watching. I'm curious to see what someone who applies themselves can make. My friend who went is a real pain in the ass, she's kind of a stuck up *****. I had low expectations for whatever she directed because of a previous situation. She had to direct a music video for some band and asked me to do camera work on it. She had no idea how to shoot the video, and she kept freaking out. It was a disaster. I told her off, and then I decided to take action because I felt my time was being wasted. I directed her music video, then edited it, and put her name on it (because it lacked preparation, it wasn't anywhere near my best work, but I think it was far beyond hers.) This girl, the summer after being a drama queen to shoot this video, went to the NYFA where the probably pulled the same **** and made some crappy video to a crappy NoFX song. I think her problem is that her parents always lied to her and told her that everything she did was good, and hence she expects everything to be easy because of it. I mean, if I have to go shoot a 5 minute spot for someone, I expect it to take more than 5 minutes. I don't think she does.All those crappy films you saw we're from people who didnt put enough time and dedication into the program (ie: spent the whole time spending their parents money). When I went to the princeton program a couple years ago, there were several kids who dedicated alot of time to their productions, and in turn got great results.
