    6 Tips on How to Finish Your Micro-Budget Film

    We don't want to repeat each other's mistakes. We have to learn to admit what we've done wrong. And we have to share the lessons we've learned. We learn what to do better the next time, by fucking up famously the first time. Second films are rich terrain precisely for this reason....

Today, they share a bit about what they went through when they embarked on their first feature, Lawrence's GABI ON THE ROOF IN JULY. They are as honest and forthcoming about their process, as they are in their filmmaking itself. As I said yesterday, "Whether you aspire to work with your significant other, or just collaborate well with your team, the back and forth and g...
