You can't say indie film without say Robert Rodriguez. I've been a HUGE fan of how Robert Rodriguez makes his films for a long time. His legendary film "El Mariachi" was released when I was in high school and changed my life.

Can movement tell a story? Sure, if you're as gifted as Akira Kurosawa. More than any other filmmaker, he had an innate understanding of movement and how to capture it onscreen.

The 124th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin's birthday was yesterday, and the date represents both the birth of a man and the birth of a cultural icon. Perhaps the biggest of them all. Chaplin made a name for himself during the early years of cinema where silent films had a natural global appeal and became a worldwide name as an actor, producer, writer and director.
We, of course, live in color. But the world that early Hollywood presented was almost exclusively black and white. Chelsea-born Herbert Kalmus, his college buddy Daniel Comstock and gadget guru Burton Westcott wanted to change that. So in 1915 they launched a company, Technicolor, to do just that.
Steven Sasson in 1973, the year he started working at Eastman Kodak. Imagine a world where photography is a slow process that is impossible to master without years of study or apprenticeship. A world without iPhones or Instagram, where one company reigned supreme.

If you're one of those people who reads internet editorials about film and filmmaking (and let's face it, the fact that you're reading this right now is a good indication that you are), then you've undoubtedly heard somebody lament that computer generated imagery is destroying everything sacred about the moving image medium.

Who? Over his extraordinary 40-year career, Brazilian-born photographer Sebastião Salgado has crossed continents, from native South America to Africa and Eastern Europe, silently documenting the lives of the people he met.
