Making Movies and Software at the Speed of Thought!
Director Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, El Mariachi, Sin City) is an Agile Director. He enjoys making highly creative movies quickly and cheaply. His ambition is to make movies at the speed of thought. To achieve this goal, he works in small teams to develop the ideas, visualize them quickly, shoot the movie fast, and build the movie in layers. This workshop will introduce Rodriguez's approach to film making by screening several of his 10 minute flick school featurettes and we will explore how these techniques translate to software development in a lively group discussion.
