Movie Reviews

$50 promotion for the filmmakers movies
Celeste Thoms | Rochester,NY | 07/13/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Let me just say that for some people this DVD will be great to see an independent working on his films. But you can see that kind of stuff on special features of better movies. Robert Rodriguez has a 10-minute filmschool on each of his DVD's and they give more information.
The thing I didn't like about this DVD is that it says it's filmschool in a box, but it seems more like a promotion for the filmmakers movies and his company. He had on one part on how to raise money and the only thing he said was there is no one way to raise money and then he showed a session of his actors performing for some investors, but it was not helpful. He still didn't tell you how to get the investors to get a performance.
For $50 and something that promised filmschool in a box it didn't deliver. Get the book instead. I think the concept of a DVD like this is great but it didn't deliver.
Buy it to check it out if you want to and make up your own mind about it. But I don't recommend this."

"No, just kidding, but I did find this set informative and entertaining. You can learn a lot about filmmaking from the errors of others, and Make Your Own Damn Movie shows that in spades. And with over 20 hours of content, it's a steal at $50. If you're an aspiring filmmaker or even just a fan of Troma, the Make Your Own Damn Movie Box Set is for you."
It really does beat film school.

"This is a great, comprehensive set of DVDs for both experienced and aspiring filmmakers. It's informative, hilarious, and above all, practical. Kaufman's low budget filmmaking lessons are more relevant to people who want to make their own films than anything you'd learn at film school-- and a hell of a lot cheaper, too. And to top it off, the interviews and behind-the-scenes footage are really, really funny."
Make your own damn art

"this dvd box set is educational, inspirational, and entertaining. there are a bunch of documenteries that were entertaining and there are very informative interviews with veterans of film making. lloyd kaufman doesnt beat around the bush. i feel i got alot of major dos and donts on making a film.
i am a musician with a real DIY aproach to releasing c.d.'s and touring, and while this box set is for making your own damn movie it can also be used as inspiration for any art one is involved in. so i would say buy this box set and go out and make your own damn art!!!"
