Hi /film/, haven't been on here in a while but I'm glad to see the board still seems to be alive. I finished undergrad earlier this year and have had a pretty miserable experience looking for jobs since then, it seems like the good jobs are inaccessible and even the shit jobs require 2-4 years of experience. I've been giving more thought to grad school, probably in something film related (whether it be and MA or MFA). I don't really know where to start looking on which programs would be best, just on a quick glance it seems like Columbia, UCLA, UChicago, and AFI might be good choices for different sorts of film stuff. Does anyone have experience with film-related grad school?


I like the UCLA campus. It's in a nice part of LA. I have no experience with their film program but it's probably very expensive if you live out of state.

How do I make found footage/video art/machinima film without being struck by copyright infringement?

2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



I remember listening to a mixtape with a bunch of uncleared copyright samples. The same track appeared on the official album, but the copyright samples were replaced with something a bit different.

The copyright music was used as an inspiration, but they were phased out when needed. The final product seemed to be completely original.



It's not about copyright bots taking it down. It's about commercially distributing a modified version of the work without clearing the copyrights. This includes using video game footage for a machinima film.


Aren't there companies that won't bother you for using their game footage?

Where/how are you going to sell this?



submitting to film festivals



I hope you will share it with us too

Nice list. I didn't know about that silent film.

Passport to Pimlico reminded me of Genevieve, made by the same director but outside of Ealing

It's a charming technicolor comedy about racing antique cars




Thank you for the recommendation. Never heard of that one.

>-All 'Ealing Comedies' - especially Passport to Pimlico

Which other Ealing pictures do you like? Passport to Pimlico was quite charming. The style of comedy was different than I expected. Instead of getting laughs from sight gags or endless punchlines, the comedy came from characters who were suddenly in a funny situation.

Also the line about "We've always been English..." was fantastic.

>damn, would have never guessed the spielberg one

It's cool to see how he got started and where he got the name "Amblin Entertainment". The bootleg copy is very washed out thought, giving it a faraway atmosphere. It has some interesting visual ideas despite the cheap production.

>interestingly enough though, i was tempted to put La ville des pirates on my chart at first

Yeah that's a stunning experience. So what are the other ones in your chart?

Thanks man, I'm looking up those titles. I'll have to watch Tren de Sombras sometime because I like when nitrate fragments are assembled into a new project.

BTW I guess there is a DVD for Water and Power. The director released it himself but it didn't show up when I googled.

I've been watching old "city movies" recently, by which I mean movies (preferably documentary) that focus on the daily life of a city. Some favorites so far have been Duoro Faina Fluvial, Berlin: Symphony of a Great City, and A Propos de Nice. Any recommendations of similar films would be appreciated, maybe we could even work on a city-core chart

Well-made bit of social propaganda. The exaggerated portrayals of country life and city life are intriguing. I was very interested in the utopian planned city at the end of the documentary. I never knew about "greenbelt" cites before - planned by the Feds as one of the expansive New Deal social engineering projects. Planned cities often have unforeseen flaws, however I couldn't find major problems with Greenhills OH or Greenbelt MD (though it's funny they were whites-only).

Obviously the greenbelt idea did not spread as much as the documentary envisioned, but the lifestyle of these communities bears plenty of similarities to suburbs which became very popular without central planning.



I really like that one. I'm surprised at the low imdb rating though (5.9/10!). I guess it rates poorly because of the way it unrealistically maligns cities like New York.

I submit Genoa - More Than This as of the best short city movies. Tell me if you agree.

The director says

<Genoa is one of the most underrated cities in Europe. City reveals its charm if you decide to explore it. Here's a short visual poem exposing my memories that left with me after my short stay there. Place that is free of crowds and chaos you may observe all around.

Montreal By Night (1947)


File: 2706f5710efb5a6⋯.jpg (76.51 KB, 970x647, 970:647, monrovia-indiana.jpg)


<Monrovia, Indiana explores a small town in rural, mid-America and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived along with conflicting stereotypes. The film gives a complex and nuanced view of daily life in Monrovia and provides some understanding of a way of life whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood in the big cities on the east and west coasts of America and in other countries.

Director’s Statement

<I thought a film about a small farming community in the Midwest would be a good addition to the series I have been doing on contemporary American life. Monrovia, Indiana appealed to me because of its size (1,400 residents), location (I have never shot a film in the rural Midwest) and the shared cultural and religious interests within the community. During the nine weeks of filming the residents of Monrovia were helpful, friendly and welcoming and gave me access to all aspects of daily life. Life in big American cities on the east and west coasts is regularly reported on and I was interested in learning more about life in small town America and sharing my view.

I just made a thread on /tv/ about this. Fucking Kubrick. Big let down. Never watched his shit, and just finished Dr. Strangelove and Eyes Wide Shut. Very dissapointing, but more pissed off at the society that props up his mediocre story delivery, and his luck of having an intermittent scene that is aesthetic.

Why isn't Peter Greenaway discussed more often? I think he is one of the best filmmakers to ever live. He takes Lynchian surrealism to an extremely cerebral level.

I see The Falls mentioned in other threads but not here. I think it's mad brilliance, one of those unique cinema experiences that sticks in your mind forever.

It took me a few days to get through the 3+ hours of absurd names, obsessive passions, mysterious happenings, birds, water, circular travel, references to Greenaway's later films, and hypnotic musical stings by Michael Nyman. It was soothing to watch parts of The Falls at the end of the day when I was barely lucid.

By the way, has anyone ever asked Greenaway how he feels about Wes Anderson doing a cutesy hipster version of his films?

May 4 2017 interview with Peter Greenaway (AKA "Famous Director")


[H]e is less than enamoured with the state of modern cinema.

"I think it's appalling" he said. "We've ended up with a cinema which is just bedtime stories for adults.

"The films are anodyne and repetitive – we've seen it all before.

"I hardly ever go to the cinema, I find it so boring."

Mr Greenaway said he had been a big fan of directors such as David Cronenberg (The Fly, Videodrome) and David Lynch (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet), but felt their best work was behind them.

"Lynch has disappeared and Cronenberg is wasting his time illustrating novels," Mr Greenaway said.

He now prefers to look back to the work of earlier auteurs such as Sergei Eisenstein, Alain Resnais, whose 1961 movie Last Year at Marienbad he described as "the best film of the past 60 years", and his Italian "heroes" including Michelangelo Antonioni and Federico Fellini.

"But the Italians have now thrown it all away," he said. "I certainly respect Antonioni and Fellini, people with a visual sense, who tell stories in a visual way."

He said modern film-makers had not even taken full advantage of the "exciting digital revolution", still making movies in the same format at directors did in the 1950s and 1960s.

He said art should provide "the shock of the unfamiliar".



I like his quote "bedtime stories for adults" but I disagree with his claim that there's NOTHING good being made right now. It doesn't sound like he's digging very deep.

Has anyone seen The Tulse Luper Suitcases and is it worth a look?
