Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In Rebel Without a Crew, famed independent screenwriter and director Robert Rodriguez ( Sin City, Sin City 2, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Spy Kids) discloses all the unique strategies and original techniques he used to make his remarkable debut film, El Mariachi, on a shoestring budget. This is both one man's remarkable story and an essential guide for anyone who has a celluloid story to tell and the dreams and determination to see it through.  Part production diary, part how-to manual, Rodriguez unveils how he was able to make his influential first film on only a $7,000 budget.  Also included is the appendix, 'The Ten Minute Film Course,” a tell-all on how to save thousands of dollars on film school and teach yourself the ropes of film production, directing, and screenwriting.

Book Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Plume. 202 x 134 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. No one has landed on the cinematic map with more explosive force than Robert Rodriguez, director of El Mariachi. Just how did this amateur filmmaker from Texas - with only one camera, no crew, and a budget largely raised by subjecting himself to medical experimentation - manage to complete a feature film for $7,000 and get himself wined and dined by Hollywood s biggest movie moguls? Now, in his own witty and straightshooting style, Robert Rodriguez discloses all the unique strategies and innovative techniques he used to make El Mariachi on the cheap. You ll see firsthand Rodriguez s whirlwind Mariachi-style filmmaking, where creativity-not money -is used to solve problems. Culminating in his Ten-Minute Film School, this book may render conventional film-school programs obsolete. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780452271876
