More Quotes For Road Dog

“Kelley Baker is a storyteller par excellence – on film and now in prose. In Road Dog we have the pleasure of journeying with “the Angry Filmmaker” as he careens across the American landscape with his dog Moses. I felt like I was riding shotgun the whole time. Awesome fun and also quite touching, too. A love poem to a special canine and to the open road.” – Beth Harrington, Independent Filmmaker

“Kerouac meets Truffaut in this road trip gem. All the ache and passion of film-making, heart-felt by independent filmmaker, Kelley Baker on a trip across America. Enjoy this read as I did on this road well-traveled.” – Paul Diener, Producer

The Seven Deadly Sins of Filmmaking #8 Podcast

 

If it’s Monday then this must be Podcast #8.

Yes, I took some time off, it’s summer but I’m back and I’ll be posting the next few each week and we’ll see where we end up. So anyway…

Once again I will recap how these Podcasts came about for those who haven’t heard or can’t read…

A couple years ago after watching hundreds of students films and films by new filmmakers, William Akers (Author of Your Screenplay Sucks!) sat down and wrote out The Seven Deadly Sins of Filmmaking for his students. His goal was to put a laminated list of these sins in to every camera bag at school so when students went out on their shoots they would have one more reminder of things not to do.

He passed his list around to some of his friends and other Independent Filmmakers in the film business for input and we added more until the list swelled to eighteen.

On one of my frequent trips to Nashville over a glass of wine or four, William decided we should record a group of Podcasts.

William continues to call it The Seven Deadly Sins of Filmmaking (even though there are eighteen) because it has such a classical sound to it.

For the next couple months I’m going to re-post these, one every week, so come back and listen. And if you can’t stand the suspense and want to listen to them all at once, you’ll find them all here on my website under the menu button that says, PODCASTS.

I’m sure you have other Filmmaking Sins that are not included in our list but we think this is a pretty good place to start. So gather round filmmakers and take a listen. This shit is more entertaining than sitting in a classroom.

This weeks edition is called “Never Cast People Who Are The Wrong Age”

What the Hell does this mean? Really? You have no idea?

Re-write for the character. If you can’t get the right person to play a part you’ve written, then re-write the part. Always pick the best Actor!  But wait there’s more.  And for that…   Listen to the damn podcast!

We’ll be getting in to production stuff, yeah actual filmmaking, coming up in later podcasts.
