A movie by a film teacher & his students at Facets this upcoming week

Post #: 14
FAVORITE SON is playing at Facets from July 10 to July 16. I was researching this film yesterday, and I discovered that it was directed by a film teacher, who used a crew made up mostly of his students. By begging, borrowing, and stealing, he was able to make it for about $20,000. Anyone who is an aspiring filmmaker, or who has even thought about it, should come to check it out. I can't vouch for whether it is really good, or not, but there are two things I find interesting about the film's production. The first: WIth today's DV equipment, it is possible for anyone to make a film. However, does that make it any good? Will a level of craftsmanship be maintained? The second: Can it get any kind of distribution in theaters? THis film does not have a distributor. If it weren't for places like Facets, it wouldn't get shown.
