Make a Movie Like Spike

2 Mar

So in preparation for my trip to Ecuador this summer, I’m learning a lot about documenting scenes and experiences and interviewing people involved using my new flipcam! In this movie, the director, writer, starring actor, and cinematographer, Jamil Smith, filmed a good part of it with a flipcam just like I will be! It’s an unbelievably good movie that tells the story of two young men enlisting in the Marines and preparing for their deployment. With incredible character development and techniques that make the whole story feel surprisingly realistic, this movie is filled with raw emotion and definitely one to see. We were lucky enough to get to chat with both Smith and his producer, Brittany Ballard, and they’re inspiring people who are truly on a mission to promote this new genre of filmmaking. Check them out on facebook and at their website to see when they’re screening it next!
