WORKING WITHIN SMALL BUDGETS AND LIMITATIONS Film schools seem to promise a quick route to the film industry, and many students figure that big-budget studio productions await them right after graduation. The harsh reality is that Hollywood studio feature filmmaking is simply not a viable way to imagine one’s formative efforts in filmmaking.

After leaving college, they began their professional output with Soul Food (1997) and have worked successfully together ever since. It’s common that the creative group you’ve cultivated in film school becomes the one you rely on when you’re making your first professional projects, but close collaborative relationships can also originate outside film school.
