Rebel Without A Crew

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 straight-shooting 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.
