DC Shorts, Mustard & The B Movie Celebration

September 22, 2009

The tour is going great so far. I had two large crowds for my workshop at the DC Shorts Film Festival, (http://dcshorts.com/) as always Jon Gann throws the best film festival. I met some great filmmakers and saw some old friends. Jon, keep doing what you’re doing and I’ll come back ANYTIME you want me. If you have never been to DC Shorts, you are a fool.

I just finished shooting a 10 minute short with a group of students at the Wisconsin Film School in Madison (http://www.wisconsinfilmschool.org/). It all went really well and the weather cooperated. In fact I am even a bit sunburned. I want to thank all of the students and the professionals involved, you made it al worthwhile project. Now someone else can edit it.

I am on my way to Chicago to see a few friends and then down to Indiana for the B Movie Celebration (http://bmoviecelebration.bside.com/2009/). I’ll be teaching a workshop on Sound Design and hanging out with old friends. If you have never been here before and you love interesting movies, you need to come on down. Bill Dever hosts a great festival.

Don’t forget, my book, The Angry Filmmaker Survival Guide Part One: Making The Extreme No Budget Film is full of things to help you make your film. So why haven’t you bought it!

Go to my site, (www.angryfilmmaker.com) and buy it for a mere $16.95 + $3 S&H. You’ll feel better about yourself in the morning.

"Like any good survivalist, Kelley Baker doesn't beat around the bush - he gets right down to the nitty-gritty heart of the matter right way. His 12 chapter Survival Guide is a compact, no-holds-barred 12-step program to creating what Baker calls "The Extreme No-Budget Film." Baker is on fire about making films. You will be too after reading this brutally honest compilation of personal stories and practical advice from the front lines of independent filmmaking."
