THE CONCEPT: You're being interviewed for a feature on emerging new filmmakers - the handy part being its you doing the interviewing... There are 15 questions (which you can rephrase) to choose from - if working in a group, between all 3 of you all 15 should be answered, but it would be fine to tackle 5 Qs each to do this. The questions are:
§ Is it still possible to be creative in this post-modern world? [try this article...]
§ What tips would you give a young, aspiring film-maker?
§ How do you intend to ensure your film gets seen? [ie marketing, secure distribution]
§ Who was your film aimed at?
§ What can you tell us about the production process, including your planning?
§ What are the major influences on this work? Is it a genre film?
§ What was your budget?
§ What equipment/hardware did you use, how was this; anything you’d have liked to use?!
§ Is there any truth in the rumours of a big-budget re-make? Who’s involved, and how did this happen? [linked to poster featuring stars - obviously you're using your imagination here!]
§ Any plans for a sequel?
§ Were you satisfied with the screenplay? Was the narrative successful?
§ Talk to us about your editing choices/style, and the soundtrack.
§ Do you think your film deserved the praise/criticism it got for its representations of…?
§ Looking at this film, what are your feelings on the BBFC rating system? Did you suffer any cuts at the hands of the BBFC? [again, use your imagination...]
§ Any views on the widely-held belief that films and other media are responsible for many of our social problems? How do you think your film will have affected the audience? [cite some audience theory/ies here: hypodermic syringe theory]This needs to be presented as a magazine feature, including images of the filmmaker/s and screenshots of the film itself.
