Film Financing - Can Film Graduates Take the Challenge?
By John Gaskin Film Financing
Graduates from a Film Studies program have a new opportunity in film & video production. Of course, with every opportunity comes a challenge - and in this case, the challenge is to find financing for your, or your employer's, projects.
With the advent of digital equipment the scope of film & video production has widened. The usual Hollywood styled film production is no longer the only route to a career for film graduates. There are a multitude of opportunities in audio and visual applications throughout business, government and the entertainment industry. That means OPPORTUNITY for the keenest graduates to produce their own film & video projects, or to land the most interesting positions with leading film & video production companies.
Financing has been a dirty word for years in the film industry. The 'Blue Suits' and the cold heart of the banker are synonymous with the enemy of the creative. However, in this new era of opportunity you need to be both the 'Blue Suit' and the creative.
Ten Best Films of The Past 10 Years
By Academy Nashville 10 best films of the past 10 years
What makes a good animated movie? While beautiful art is certainly important, it takes an engaging story and memorable characters to help an animated film truly stand out. Here’s our list of the 10 best animated films since 2000. What do you think? Did we leave anyone out?
10. Monsters, Inc (2001)
No animation studio has more consistently produced great movies this decade like Pixar. In their first film of the new millennium, Pixar uses computer animation to create an alternate world where the monsters are scared of children. With jokes and sight gags packed into almost every frame, the team at Pixar makes the monster world seem almost more fun than our own.
9. Shrek (2001)
DreamWorks Animation used Shrek to poke fun at traditional fairy tales in a way no animated movie had up to that point. Pinocchio, the three little pigs and Prince Charming are all fair game for the big green ogre and his talking donkey sidekick. “Shrek” went on to win the first-ever Academy Award for an Animated Feature, and has spawned two sequels (with another on the way) that have made almost $2.2 billion to date.
Are You a Film Critic, Or a Film Reviewer?
By Andy Webb Film reviewer
If you've ever searched the internet for information about a film, then the chances are you have been greeted by pages of search results from a huge variety of websites and blogs. Some of them are well established sites attached to major publications whilst others are the musings from someone who writes about films as a hobby. What I find interesting is that what all these people class themselves as, some refer to themselves as a film critic where as others say they area film reviewer, and yes I have my own film website and I class myself as a film reviewer which will explain why later on. But the question is "is there any difference between a film critic and film reviewer and does it really matter?"
What is a Film Critic
To my knowledge there is no hard and fast rule who can and can't call themselves a film critic, there is no degree or course that all critics have to go through to be allowed to refer to themselves as a critic. Although there are a few characteristics which in my opinion set those who call themselves film critics apart from those who call themselves film reviewers.
