How I got my first film job
Posted October 24, 2019 08:23:50 I worked at the Paterson Film Festival, the largest film festival in the country, from 1990-2001.
My job was to film film of foreign films, so I did a lot of documentaries on the Congo.
I worked there for three years, until I retired in 2004.
I was lucky enough to work with the legendary director Peter Berg, who is also the director of some of the best documentaries in the world, including Arrival and The Revenant.
He directed Arrival, and I had an amazing time shooting it.
After I retired, I went to France to work on the second part of Arrival.
When I returned to the United States, I was contacted by a friend, filmmaker and producer Mark Cusak, who wanted to do something for me.
He was a director who directed a film called A Serbian Film and I met with him in London and in Los Angeles, and we developed the idea together.
The idea was to go to the Congo and film a Serbian film.
The Congo is a place of conflict and tension and violence.
It’s the scene of the film, where you’re going to film this war.
It would be a very intimate film.
It was going to be a Serbian documentary.
When it was done, I told my friend, Mark Cusek, and he said, “What if I were to go and shoot it with you?
I want to make a documentary that will be the most intimate film I’ve ever seen.”
We had an idea to do a documentary about the life of a young Serbian film director, Aleksander Kviatic.
And he was the one who said, I want you to direct this documentary.
We ended up shooting in the middle of the day, in a field in the central Congo region, on a farm, on the side of the road, which is very dangerous.
It had been very violent in the past and there were snipers on the road.
So we took three days, and three days were the time when we were shooting, and in the morning, we went back to the farm.
Aleksandr was a very shy and shy guy, he was very shy, he couldn’t speak, he had no confidence, he didn’t speak English.
We took him to the house of the farmer who owned the farm, and there was a small room where he could lie down.
When he saw me, he said: “I’m here to tell you, I love you.
I love your documentary, you’ve done it with great care and passion.
It’ll be a documentary, a story about a young man, I’m going to tell a story of my life.”
The farmer said: I’ve never heard anyone say that before.
Alek had a dream to make this documentary and he wanted to film himself shooting this war in the Congo, so we set up a shoot.
We set up the shoot with two cameras: a 35mm camera and a 50mm camera.
We shot in the evening in the forest, the place where we were, and the field where the young man was living.
We filmed his life, everything he did, and his reaction, how he reacted to this violence, everything, and that was very difficult.
When we started shooting, Alek was very nervous, he thought it would be impossible to get permission to film in the field.
But I told him, “If you get permission, you can shoot in the village, but if you don’t, we’ll film the entire village.”
He said, OK, OK.
And I gave him a piece of paper and I gave the rest of the villagers the name of the village and we took the road and we shot in a very dangerous place.
Ale, who was a shy guy and very shy at first, suddenly came out and was very funny, he did the whole village, he even shot the young woman in the film.
And the village had a name, Dziga Zemac, meaning the young lady in the picture, and when he was about to shoot the village in the movie, the villagers came and stopped him and told him that he couldn’ t shoot the young women.
And then he asked: “Why?”
And they said: Because the village was named after a rebel who had died.
He asked: what do you mean?
“And I said: What I meant is the whole story.
And Aleksandar went to a village, and all the villagers had their cameras.
He got to know the young girl, and they all had their camera and they started filming him.
Ale had to stop when he saw that she was a young woman.
So he stopped when he found out she was pregnant, and then he shot and shot and filmed her and he never stopped filming.
Ale was very quiet and he was a gentle, shy guy.
He had to do
