Can you make video about your favorite novels?
June 27, 2014 at 11:57 am
That’s what I was wondering about. I’d like to see some more fiction too 🙂 Novels, fairy tales, myth stuff too. Maybe some poetry, the old stuff of course, like Dante Aligheri’s Divine Comedy. Or maybe graphic novels and comic books too.
June 27, 2014 at 11:58 am
And if you have any favorite web fiction too, like stories posted on blogs, or webcomics, I’d love to hear about them too 😀
I meant if James had any favorties by the way.

hey Nerd, I notice a star wars book in the background, lets look at that
June 28, 2014 at 9:29 am
Well, he said ‘It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, world’ was his favorite (http://cinemassacre.com/2008/09/20/the-holy-grail-of-movie-locations/). Still yay for the list.

Aw. Sorry. Missread. Novels. Shame on me.

In your next ‘books’ video, please please please do Ready Player One. It is an awesome book and you should read it if you haven’t already. I think you would really like it.

I have that same Rodriguez book; read it many years ago but I find myself going back to the 10-minute Film School now and again for inspiration. Really good stuff.

Great video!! FYI, @ 2:05 the background music ends rather abruptly. Didn’t know if that was a small editing error…

I hope James writes a book about making the AVGN Movie.
June 27, 2014 at 7:39 pm
Yeah that seems like a cool idea. It should, in my opinion, have the techniques for the special effects. I know he likes to do things the original way, or old fashion, as mentioned before.
June 27, 2014 at 3:18 pm
YES YES YES on Rodriguez’s book. Very well written and such a creative director who knows how to get work done.
June 27, 2014 at 7:43 pm
Deffinately gonna read RR book. I’m still young, and I try WAY too hard to make it seem good. I keep writing screenplays, and never do anything with them. Also, I think you should do one more, VIDEO GAME BOOKS!!!! You talked about them in the Megaman Worlds of Power and some Nerd episodes, but there are a lot more.

i love this series of videos, so inspiring and relaxing

my neighbor’s step-sister brought home $20864 a week ago. she has been making cash on the internet and bought a $519900 home. All she did was get lucky and apply the advice exposed on this link

James, you are such an inspirational person. I can’t wait to read your autobiography in 20 years.
June 28, 2014 at 12:55 am
It’s interesting how your film profs reacted to the whole Rodriguez thing. It’s clear that his approach to filmmaking really shook up the paradigm of the film industry. A lot of people in the biz probably don’t like the implications of what it means to the industry as a whole.
Indy filmmaking definitely has the opportunity to shake things up. Anyway, James, I want you to know that I enjoy watching this series of films. I know that you probably enjoy making them as well. Keep up the good work!
June 28, 2014 at 1:20 am
You know what kind of book I want to see? I want to see James write a book on everything he learned making the AVGN movie, and everything that happened while making it, start to finish. That would be a great read. James, you should totally make it happen!

I bought Kaufman’s “All I need to know…” a while back since you’ve talked about it many times before and I definitely recommend it. Ironically you won’t learn all you need to know about film-making from it but it is filled with crazy stories and is all around a hilarious book about the average person struggling to fulfill a life long dream.

Port-o-potties ftw!! lol, great surreal images book James. it looked really creative

The actual budget of El Mariachi is $7,000 + a lifetime of freakish dedication to the filmmaking craft and artform.
June 30, 2014 at 9:06 am
Cool video. I love Lloyd Kaughman but his movie shoots always sound like total nightmares.
July 1, 2014 at 12:44 am
Nice to see James showing some love to Robert Rodriguez. El Mariachi was a fucking awesome movie and, in many ways, better than its sequel Desperado.

I actually have a poster of the front cover photo of the Surrational Images book. It hangs my bedroom that used to be a guest room, so it just stayed there.
