    Hello all,
    I was wondering what DVD's have nice audio commentaries / disc features for an aspiring/newbie filmmaker - i.e. what DVD's do you think are educational in the art of filmmaking, or just downright interesting? Thanks in advance. [​IMG]
    PS. Yeah, I know it's not the way to learn, but I'm interested in anything related to my hobby. [​IMG]

    I think's it hard to lose with Steven Soderbergh commentaries. 2 I would recommend in particular are the one on the Limey (great discussion with the film's writer about how writing and directing are 2 different jobs that often work against each other) and his discussion with Mike Nichols on Catch-22. The latter one may not have a lot of nuts and bolt info for an aspiring filmmaker but it does touch a lot on the art of making films. Both are well worth your time.

    both Terminator movies, the Abyss and Tron imo are outstanding movies and a wealth of special features that makes it worth owning these discs

    Yeah, I have T2: Ultimate Edition, and it's simply awesome. I like it a lot.

    I'll have to find some Soderberg DVD's too then! Thanks for the suggestion.

    American Movie
    At first, you might scratch your head and say "What could I possibly learn from Mark Borchardt?" By the end, you'll admire his tenacity.
    Plus, you'll also learn the correct pronunciation of the word 'coven.'
