Tarantino's Advice: Don't Go To Film School
Director Quentin Tarantino had this advice for aspiring filmmakers: take the
money they have saved to go to film school and use it to make their own movie
instead. "Trying to make a feature film yourself with no money is the best film
school you can do," he said during a Cinema Master Class at the Cannes Film
Festival on Thursday, referring to his own early experience. Tarantino also
revealed why he uses previously recorded music from other movies and TV shows
rather than an original score for his films. "I just don't trust any composer
to do it," he said, noting that the music is the last major element added to a
production. "The idea of paying a guy and showing him your movie at the end --
who the f*** is this guy coming in here and throwing his s*** over my movie.
What if I don't like it? And the guy's already been paid!"
