So everyone's got a great movie idea - but never before has it been more within our grasp. Tiny digital cameras and cheap laptop editing programs mean that every college dorm and suburban bedroom could be hiding the next Stanely Kubrick.
But does it take more than a great idea and some fancy equipment to be a filmmaker?
Today, where we live, we're going to talk about Project Green Street: An emerging filmmaker's symposium at Weslyean University's Green Street Arts Center. We'll talk about the changing industry, and what it takes to make movies. We'll also consider whether Connecticut can become the next big movie hub. Tax credits make it more likely that movies will be shot on our streets, but do we have the infrastructure to become Hollywood east?
