“SELF-PRODUCING & SELF-DISTRIBUTING YOUR (EGOLESS) DOCUMENTARY”
MASTERCLASS HELD BY BORIS MITIĆ
«Yes, they’ll rip you off, mentally at least, as they gain undeserved ownership over your baby, often by merely stamping your proposal or rough cut. When it finally stands on its reels, they’ll sweet-talk you into accepting a don’t-worry deal, actually aimed at sustaining their pseudo-posh lifestyles through exorbitant lazy-distribution fees and dubious ‘operating costs’, that somehow always offset every lira your film ever earns. You swear never to do it again and want to do everything on your own – or you’ve been excited, curious or crazy enough to do-it-yourself in the first place. In both cases, you burn out, sooner or later, by spending more time on emails, excel formatting options and rescuing your private life than on the creative DNA of your baby. So there must be some balance to be found.
This lecture is actually about that balance».
Boris Mitić is a self-taught documentary filmmaker, producer, distributor, lecturer, blitz-chess player, street football playmaker and triple super father, living from the money that he loses by making films. Currently (read: in the last 5 years) indulging in creating a megalomaniac documentary about Nothing, narrated by Nothing, filmed by 100+ complementary cinematographers from around the world and pre-sold, of course, to the largest broadcasters and art museums. www.dribblingpictures.com
