I'm from London, 16 years old and female. Ever since I first watched Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho', I knew I wanted to be a director. I became obsessed, I watch all of his films around four times each and went through each one, studying the use of his particularly dramatic and iconic instrumental music and the use of his camera angles. I want to be able to write my own screenplays and put a team together to collaborate and put it to life. I've already started writing a few, one of which was a adaption of the novel 'Of Mice and Men', which was used for a stage production. I'm also writing with a friend of mine, a crime avant-garde inspired story, with which we are going to film. However, I know I need direction. I understand that this business is extremely bitterly hard to get into and to make a living, but this is all I want to do with my life. I wanted to ask a few questions: 1.) Is it hard for a female to get noticed in the film industry? I don't mind working in a mostly male dominated industry, I just know that there aren't as many women who film, compared to men. 2.) Camera recommendations and lenses too. I need to find a camera suitable of shooting raw material. 3.) I noticed that a lot of film directors never went to university, they went straight in by doing apprenticeship type work. I would never be able to do that, so I know I need to go to university. What would be a good choice of one in London? 4.) Lighting equipment. I would like to know what types you use. Thank you for reading.
All, I'll be brief, i'm essentially looking for a film making graduate that might be interested in making a short film documentary about a motorcycle build. I belong to a partnership of 5 motorcycle enthusiasts in Camden Town that share a workshop and reinvent vintage motorcycles. The aim of this next project is to take a Triumph Bonneville from 2008, strip it down and reinvent it... this time as a classic motorcycle. That is to say, a motorcycle with character. The workshop is located underground underneath an old artist's studio. The two people building the bike will consist of myself (Raoul) and the client (JT). Were both in our mid twenties and work full time. The idea behind the documentary is to capture drama and energy of building a custom motorcycle in the spirit of Matt Machine (). Requirement: First of all I should make it clear that the project will not be paid. As film maker you will be given total control over the film making and given full credit. It is quite simply an opportunity for you to make a unique short film. Dates available (between end of May and beginning of June 2013). If you are interested, then please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll meet for a coffee. Looking forward to hearing from you. WE
