Overview A beginner's introduction to do-it-yourself filmmaking, told through the story of an underground, low-budget production called "Quality of Life," describes its plot as well as its crew's shoestring movie-making process and successful screenings at sold-out film festivals. Original.
Want to see what do-it-yourself filmmaking is all about? Benjamin Morgan did, so he made the low-budget, scraped together film <i>Quality of Life</i>. Shot on location in San Francisco's Mission District, the movie sheds light on a clandestine graffiti subculture, telling an authentic and gripping story of two young graffiti writers whose friendship and lives unravel after they get arrested. Morgan's book delves into how he and his crew were able to build their movie out of nothing, get it screened to sold-out audiences at film festivals nationwide, and even take home a couple awards. Both a compelling story and an intriguing behind-the-scenes look at underground film, <i>Putting the Pieces Together</i> explores a burgeoning field in the evolving world of cinema.
