How to Make Movies at Home
Wasserman Cinematheque, Sachar International Center
Are you and your friends making movies? If not, are you crazy? The wall between “pro” and “am” has crumbled and a new wave of folk cinema is rolling in. “How to Make Movies at Home” is a wild, infectious celebration of the Do-It-Yourself world — peppered with practical lessons on cinema craft. Director Morgan Nichols ’94 says: “Filmmaking can be a vital, bonding, soul-enhancing endeavor. Today, a new wave of microcinema, made with HD cameras and home editing, is potentially in millions of hands.” Featuring John Andrew Morrison ’95, Oded Gross ’93, Micia Mosely ’95. Music by Josh Kantor ’94 and Scott Rabin ’90. Additional screenwriting: Laura Lee Bahr ’95. Cosponsored by the Film, Television and Interactive Media program and the Brandeis Alumni Association.
