Pink8 Manifesto - Fabrizio Federico

Pink8 Manifesto

  • Film school is poison.
  • Look for street superstars to be your cast.
  • Your film must be made on no budget, just sporadic money.
  • The director must raise "get-by" money by finding a job that challenges their ethics.
  • The director must have a main character role in the film.
  • Short films are NOT acceptable, it MUST be a feature.
  • The cast must NOT know what your film is about.
  • Filming must be done without any preparation or a traditional script.
  • Your film must be 95% improvised.
  • Special lighting is not acceptable.
  • No HD Cameras
  • No 3D
  • No Green Screen
  • The director must edit the film alone.
  • Mistakes are beautiful.
  • Continuity is wrong.
  • Bewildering, vague, self-indulgent, plot-less, risky, egotistical, limpid, raw, ugly, and imperfect are perfect.
  • Technical film experience is inessential.
  • Answer to one person only—yourself.
