Movie Reviews

Good entertainment.. GREAT FOR FILMMAKERS
Brian R. Findlay | Merrimack, NH USA | 03/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been working making a documentary and with other filmmakers for a couple of years.. Always trying to learn.. I figured it would be great to see what the students in the schools do that I could never afford. This is a really fun masterpiece.. you don't really get anything very technical, but get to see a lot totally dysfunction people working on films..

I've lent this out to several people so far.. you know they actually liked it when they come back to you and tell you about it.. if it sucked they would never really say anything.. This people like to talk about. Its like another doc "Hands on the Hardbody" except about film students..
I looked forward everyday to watching the next installment, was bummed when it was done.

Tons of fun.. you might actually learn a few things too.

I highly recommend it even if nothing more than entertainment.

Thoroughly engrossing

"I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary of a few film school students struggling to "make it", while making their 'thesis'/movie. It really helped me understand how difficult it is to direct, cast, edit, produce... never having done it myself. The three main protagonists are fascinating and sympathetic characters. I was thoroughly engrossed and I'm sorry to see the program end."
