5 comments on “Tips for Christian Filmmakers – Nothing Wasted

  1. Concerning your comments on the importance of characters/actors with small roles in the film, I think Pirates of the Caribbean did an excellent job with its supporting characters. Each supporting character (Norrington, the Governor, the two pirates who acted like C3PO and R2D2, for example) was well rounded, made surprising choices, and was impeccably acted. In fact, after leaving the theater, I knew more about the supporting characters than I did of Depp’s character. Pirates was a beautiful piece of movie making and it is still one of my all-time favorite movies.

  2. You’re absolutely right. I thought the character of the Commodore and the actor playing him made that role the most sympathetic and honorable of all of the characters in the film.

  3. “I don’t watch the show to figure out the mystery, I watch the show to watch the characters figure out the mystery.” Your daughter is very insightful. I love the show and hope Tony and Ziva come to grips with their feelings for one another. I even like the new director now.

  5. Our school is looking for a passionate filmmaker who is committed to Christ…and loves students! We are looking for someone to further develop an already healthy film program. We are also currently building a 52,000 sq. foot media center…including a 5200 sq foot sound stage/studio. Now we need the right faculty. Applicants should have an MFA or PhD in a film related field.
