Summary

Summary

We're entering a new era. Mini-DV filmmaking is the new folk music, the new punk rock, the new medium where anyone can tell their story. 30-Dollar Film School is an alternative to spending four years and a hundred-thousand dollars to learn the trade. It is influenced by punk rock's Do-it-Yourself spirit of just learning the basics and then jumping up on a stage and making a point; and by the American work ethic back when it was pure, before it became all about corporations crushing the little guy. Throw in the hacker idea that information wants to be free (or at least very cheap) and you have this essence of this book.
