Robert Rodriguez: 10 minute Film School

Robert Rodriguez is often considered that filmmaker to emulate, especially when you are (ironically enough) in film school and shooting low-to-no budget films. Despite his obvious disdain for film school, Rodriguez gives up some of his time to teach you how to make a low-budget film the easiest way possible.

With this YouTube clip which is currently making rounds on social media, I find an air of affectation in Rodriguez that you could typify with Hollywood, yet you would not expect from a filmmaker who seeminly denounces Hollywood and all it’s lack of soul.

Nonetheless, there is so much interesting information said very very quickly. Yes, it is slightly out-dated as technology has advanced and I do wonder if you have no film education at all whether this would just leave you with even more questions. But I still think it’s a worthwhile watch.

I hope you enjoy…
