Lol yea, I kinda know what ur saying here. I was talking to one of the film professors and he almost had an orgasm when I mentioned Godard and Fassbinder. He said none of his students EVER mentioned them as influences or even as filmmakers they had heard of. He seemed as surprised as could be that I'm only 17 and I'm talking on his level. He was saying how all even his best students wanna do is blow shit up and kill people in their films, which saddened me when he talked about trying to show them "Breathless" and the really pure stuff to try and inspire them. It's no surprise his eyes lit up with the discovery of somebody with some real knowledge teaching kids like that.
Anyway, I still really wanna go to scad. I understand what your saying but I don't really plan to conform to too much of the stuff they seem to expect me to. I'll really be making films THRU them than WITH them. I plan to mostly hang out with people that don't even go to the school. There's no chance I'm going to use their fucking pretensious actors in my films. I'm going to recruit from the stores and streets like Harmony and find the real talent. The only stuff I'm going to use the college for is their equipment and their software......and I also want a cinematographer cause I don't shit about that. I plan to be very much unaffiliated with the school. I'll make friends and stuff but I plan to really distance myself from the film buff crowd they have there....90% of the film crowd. It seems to be an ugly, pretensious group of artsy fucks. I saw 2 seconds of some of the films they had made on the tour of the Hamilton (the film part of the campus) and I could see absolutely no energy or care for cinema in any of it.
So yea, if I even hang out with Scad people, I'll probably hang around with people in other majors, lol. It'll be just me and my cinematographer....and MAYBE.....just MAYBE.....ONE actor....or more likely, one actress.
