And while we discuss the ins and outs of the indie film scene, we also mention… Middlebury, deception, good characters, overcoming addiction, Emma Watson, a love story, being deceived, investigating the paranormal, UCLA, feel as real as possible, fly on the wall filmmaking, three act structures, questioning the viewers, maintaining and making media… for an audience, fighting traffic, tape to tape, when you question what others hold dear, pulling the curtain back, Kings of Pastry, inspired by true events, film school, escaping from a straightjacket over Niagara Falls, , watching the film with a group of people, Kim Shaw, distribution systems, Chicago, identity theft, they did this thing that should be impossible, drawing movies, detractors and it’s all just content.
“…the format and medium of documentaries nowadays, is so fantastic. Because it isn’t beholden to this three act structure, that narratives are… it isn’t boy meets girl.
