HOW TO MAKE MOVIES AT HOME | TRAILER
Jonah's band of local DIY filmmakers is threatened when a Hollywood team comes to sign Hillport, Maine, as a location for a big TV show. Jonah goes to war with Hollywood, but her real problems might be with her best friend, who has designs on the Hollywood producer's girlfriend. With practical lessons on cinema craft woven throughout, How to Make Movies at Home is a wild, infectious celebration of the DIY world and a proud instigator for a new value system in the world of movies.
MEET THE FILMMAKER
(Writer/ Director) a true example of a new kind of filmmaker - for two decades he has worked outside the entertainment industry, making features, shorts and countless other kinds of filmed and animated work with his friends for micro-budgets. His first feature, premiered at The Los Angeles Film Festival in 2003, and won the Milagro Award - Best Southwest Film at the Santa Fe Film Festival. The Little Death followed in 2006, premiering as the closing night gala film at the Atlanta Film Festival and going on to garner awards for best actor, best actress, best screenplay and best cinematography as it traveled the festival circuit. Morgan has also directed several dozen short films, many of which he shot and edited himself, going back to his first super-8's as a kid in his home state of Maine. Morgan is co-creator of lo-film, a specific method of improvised filmmaking. Dozens of lo-films have been made on two continents by different groups that have taken up the process, but the record is still 17 lo-films made on 17 consecutive Saturdays in 2001 In addition to his large body of work as a true independent filmmaker, Morgan has worked for various subsidiaries of Viacom, Warner Bros. and Disney. He holds an MFA in Cinema from The University of Southern California and a BA in Theater Arts from Brandeis University.
