No, but it’s a good idea. Most students will already have at least one year of film and television industry experience under their belt and have a pretty good idea about what projects are out there. I’m also pretty confident that the students I’m working with will be able to manage to learn as much as they can from the course by themselves.
What experience do you have in film from the previous year?
Most of the students I work with are in their second year of film and television production and are just starting to make their way through school and getting their feet wet with production.
So to give you an example, we’ve come up with a bunch of different projects for student production this year but the number one one I’m hoping to get is “Till You’re Blue,” a romantic drama that is very much an adult-oriented story. I’ve been reading a bunch of the articles about “Blue” and how they’re trying to make a contemporary, rom-com romantic feature that is still more than romantic, but still has the sense of a good, well-developed romantic story. I’m hoping that one of my students can come up with a story concept that I could get behind. It could be about two guys dating while in their teenage years and then one of them finds a girl and gets pregnant. The other two guys meet her or are introduced to her, but she has a kid by the time they finish in the third act [and then the guys leave], so I’m hoping for something like that.
Any other projects you’re currently working on?
Just for my own self-indulgent amusement I’ve come up with a list of five different comedy shows – called “Five Comedy Films to Kick the Dog” – that I would like our student directors to pick one at random for them. They’ll have 5-10 days to create 5-5 minutes of their own comedy. I’m not sure how long I’ll have to stay behind because there is always going to be more people interested in comedy than there is film production. We can always use more students working on their comedy.
If you could collaborate with any filmmakers, who would it be and why?
I think what I’d really love to collaborate with is someone like Ben Stiller, probably because I know his work and I’ve worked with him before. I’d also love to have a big budget movie like “Crimson Peak” with Steven Soderbergh and a cast
