"Making Movies" by Sidney Lumet, is a classic and a must-read for everybody in this industry, regardless of their job. "The Writers Journey" by Christopher Vogler is another very good book on classical writing – I’ve only dipped in-and-out of it myself and must really finish it. Bought "Hitchcock" by Francois Truffaut, but have yet to read it…I also have it in audio-book if anyone wants it.
I’ve been listening to these on my iPod now for over a year…there’s some really nice nuggets of advice and wisdom in these, as well as the obligatory entertaining anecdotes and inside stories."SeanBreathnach":oee4qddt wrote:"Dan":oee4qddt wrote:Thought it would be fun to watch the first short films of famous directors, good way to see that all of have to start somewhere

Jesus! According to IMDb, this cost $20,000! This little piece, for me, perfectly sums up Cameron’s work…all flash, no substance.
I’ve used Celtx for years now – it’s the best (free) scriptwriting software out there. VLC Player is by far the best generic video player – plays almost any format. MPEG Streamclip is great for ripping videos and Gimp is a very handy Photoshop alternative. The rest I’ve yet to acquaint myself with. Have you used any of the others? Anything you’d personally recommend?
Great link…thanks Sean! Some I already swear by, others are new to me…I’ll enjoy exploring them…
