Next up for our YouTube lineup we are releasing the interview we had with Pierre Filmon, an independent filmmaker from Paris, France who has directed and produced his documentary following the life and career of the legendary cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond. His film Close Encounters with Vilmos Zsigmond premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to critical acclaim (see Variety article here).

It’s amazing how he was able to make this project with basically no budget. Goes to show how important collaborating and coming from a place of selflessness with approaches pays off. Watch him talk about his process in making this documentary!

In this day and age, making your own projects is easier more than ever! In an industry where everyone wants to do the same thing, it’s important to be able to make things that show your potential, set yourself apart from others and create important relationships. Go make connections wherever you can, whether that’s finding ways to get on set, networking online on places like Stage 32 or in real life, and find any way to make your own projects.
