An Independent Film is a film that has been funded independently of a Major Studio, typically the monies come from limited partnerships, personal loans, presales, private investors and even credit cards. The late 1980’s and 1990’s saw a tremendous emergence of US independent cinema, as an enormous variety of eccentric and challenging filmmakers and evolving film styles came to America. This course will focus on American Independent Film Directors, the process of conception, funding to creation and distribution of their initial film will be examined.
