Richard Linklater on indie filmmaking – Part I

linklater


One of the best to come out of the independent film movement in the early 90’s is Richard Linklater whose film Slacker inspired Kevin Smith to make his own Clerks three years later. Linklater is all self taught, who watched 600 films a year for 10 years, read books on cinema, and made short films before he set out to make a film of his own. The first of which was It’s Impossible to Learn to Plow by Reading Books, followed by Slacker which put him on the map once and for all. Hear the man talk a little bit about making films outside the studio system.
