UCLA Lecture

I was invited to guest speak at UCLA Extension on the topic of digital filmmaking. The theme I explored for the evening was the statement by Orson Welles: "The Enemy of Art is the Abscene of Limitation". I thought it would be good for these filmmakers to embrace thier shortcomings and turn them into strengths. Along this line I also introduced them to the Dogme '95 manifesto, and Robert Rodriguez's book "Rebel Without A Crew", the bible of low budget film production.

It was an exhausting night as I had worked all day (5am - 5pm) and prepped three cameras for a shoot for the next day.
