When Should You Decide To Become a Filmmaker?

time lapse bradley king

It’s probably a question that many of you have considered: When should you quit your job and become a full-time filmmaker? What moment do people reach before they decide that this is the right life for them?

I recently launched a weekly advice podcast called Big Problems with Stephen Tobolowsky and this question came up via an email from a listener. After the jump, listen to the podcast and hear us discuss the question with Bradley King, a first-time filmmaker whose new film Time Lapse comes out on VOD later this week. We talk about when/how Bradley decided to take the plunge into filmmaking, the moment when Stephen Tobolowsky realized how profoundly people could be affected by his acting, and why Starship Troopers made Bradley cry.

2015 Summer Movie Wager

Its that time of year again. Jeff Cannata (formerly of the Totally Rad Show, now host of DLC, We Have Concerns and co-host of the /Filmcast) has thrown down the gauntlet, and once again challenged /Film to compete with him in what has become an annual tradition: the Summer Movie Wager. Every year in the past I would make a guest appearance on the Totally Rad Show for this segment, but with that show now disbanded we have taken on the job of hosting this contest on /Film. This is the ninth annual edition of this contest.

This year the contest includes David Chen (his first time) Germain Lussier (with a write-in ballot), Jeff Cannata and myself in a game is to decide what will be the highest grossing films of the Summer. It’s a free-for-all; the person with the best score wins. But it isn’t just that easy — not only do the participants need to predict what 10 films will be the highest grossing films domestically, but we need to place them in order. After the jump you can listen to the full episode of the show with our predictions.
