But first, I want you to understand this: I am NOT some money-grubbing video hack recycling out-dated generic info for outrageous prices to unsuspecting would-be filmmakers. I am a passionate life-long filmmaker and educator who loves teaching and helping other filmmakers. Film and TV projects Ia€™ve made have been screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, Slamdance, and on MTV and The Education Channel. I am currently the Production Center Manager and an adjunct professor at NYU-Tisch School of the Arts, one of the most renowned film schools in the world, where I instruct grad and undergrad students on everything from lighting to audio to camerawork and other practical production strategies for pulling off their creative vision regardless of their budget or previous experience level. Even with a family and full-time job I actively devote a huge chunk of my time to helping up and coming filmmakers.
Unlike the money-grubbing video hacks peddling whack digital downloads across the Internet, I actually want you to succeed, so Ia€™m not gonna B.S.

If youa€™re busy trying to launch a film, I know that you dona€™t have the time to read between the lines, so I took more than 2 years out of my life to catalog and illustrate the filmmaking process and write The Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide to break down the things you most need to know. Thata€™s just the useful information that Ia€™m providing, but even after 15 years in the game, I dona€™t know everything (far from it), so I reached out to gather more practical wisdom and advice some of the most respected, experienced and talented filmmakers and experts in the industry to ask them to fill in my blanks by giving you their candid advice in pages entitled Been There, Done That, that are dispersed throughout the book by topic.
Who are just some of the diverse respected and talented filmmakers who have contributed their vast filmmaking wisdom and knowledge to this book?
John is an world-renowned animation historian and Executive Director of Animation of NYUa€™s legendary Tisch School of the Arts.
Adrian and his brother Rocco, shot their documentary, Genghis Blues, on a Hi-8 video camera in the rugged mountains of Tuva. Many of these name-brand indie filmmakers have been nominated for (and even won) Oscars and won more major awards, festivals, and accolades than I could hope to list. In the 15+ years Ia€™ve been making film and TV, Ia€™ve wasted many precious hours (actually days) of my life reading i??between the lines of some overwhelming film book, trying to find and decipher the few kernels of real information that were actually relevant to helping me make my projecta€¦I rarely found the practical info I needed and hardly ever in a single book. In The Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide Ia€™ve gone through great pains to make the complicated and confusing process of filmmaking easy and clear for you to understand and more importantly, execute.


Long after you begin to master the craft, the Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide will serve as a continual illustrated reference guide to the thousand little technical and procedural details you need to recall to pull off a film. Not only that, but this book will help you avoid the most common filmmaking mistakes and give you the technical know-how, insider tips and confidence to capture your vision regardless of your budget.
In addition to that, ita€™s gotten more positive reviews and endorsements from active blog writers in and around the filmmaking community, such as Making The Movie, Irascible Ian, and The Blog Columnist.
This partial list includes some of the most prestigious names in film education on either side of the globe and they have adopted this book in the classroom for one reason and one reason only- ita€™s helping their students to make better films. I want you to take the word of the many happy customers who already own The Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide.
This price is much lower than other filmmaking products on the market and even 20% lower than the retail price printed on the book. I find the Oscars screenplay categories to be areas where the Academy can honor originality and raw creativity, outside of your typical Oscar-bate films.
Director Courtney Marsh met Chau in 2007 when she came to Vietnam to make a documentary film project for her university. Comedian Chris Rock launched his return stint as Oscar host on Sunday by immediately and unabashedly confronting the racially charged elephant in the room - the furor over the all-white field of performers nominated for Hollywood's highest honors. Reese Witherspoon (L), Sofia Vergara and Brie Larson pose on the red carpet in this combination photo before the 2016 Academy Awards in Hollywood, California February 28, 2016. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, organizer of the Oscar awards, pledged on Friday to double its membership of women and minorities by 2020 through an ambitious affirmative action plan that includes stripping some older members of voting privileges. A documentary by US director Courtney Marsh on a Vietnamese victim of Agent Orange victim was nominated for an Academy Award for best short documentary. Besides the theatrical run, the films will be released individually on iTunes on Feb. Nor am I one of these guys who made a single lame little film that never saw the light of day and is now claiming to somehow be able to give you everything you need to take on Hollywood with a dollar and dream.
A feature film I produced was covered on the front page of both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety when it took the top prize at the prestigious 2003 IFP Film Market in New York City.
As a service to the indie film community I provide tons of helpful original information in the form of a free filmmaking blog, podcast, email newsletter and Ia€™ve even donated thousands of dollars of this product to several filmmaking non-profits organizations that serve teens. I do them because this is my art, craft, and passion and I want to share the many things Ia€™ve learned (and am still learning) and do my best to inspire you to pursue and persist at filmmaking.
These are just practical straight-up answers that every filmmaker will need to know sooner or later- all explained clearly, in plain English, step-by-step.
They are self-taught and challenging the traditional notion of film distribution with innovative new models.


Ita€™s an easy and humorous read and written to inspire and motivate you to pursue your vision regardless of your budget or experience level. Not only that, but there is absolutely no-risk for you whatsoever, because just like the filmmaking instruction, the guarantee is no B.S. But as we head into Sunday's ceremony, these 11 films were left out entirely without a nomination in any category. Yet, the beauty lies in the script, which, just on read alone, is one of the best you’ll encounter from the past year. But Jonathan Glazer’s film is such an original concept, brilliantly adapted in a loose sense from Michel Faber novel of the same name.
He struggles with the difficulties of realizing his dream to become a professional artist and clothing designer.
This year marks the first time the documentary shorts have had a theatrical engagement before the Academy Awards.
And they are all giving perfectly candid, concise and practical advice on everything from funding to storytelling to ethics throughout this book. Yet, Jennifer Kent’s horror film is a brilliant showcase in pacing, with sharp cuts that keep you on the edge of your seat. Gillian Robespierre’s script is witty and brilliant (based on a 2009 short film she co-wrote). The film should have been nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and for Scarlett Johansson’s understated performance, which required the most delicate of balances between having a human quality and maintaining a soft detachment. Despite being told that his ambitions are unrealistic, Chau is determined to live an independent, productive life. If the film were nominated for Best Editing, which it should have been, it would be my pick to win.
It may have been a little too much to expect Best Actress consideration for Jenny Slate, but I wouldn’t have minded that either. If you are truly serious about filmmaking and looking for a better learning resource, therea€™s nothing more to say or to do except buy this book and Shut Up and Shoot!
