Editorial: An American Perspective on Tintin

I recently took a trip to Europe. My three big stops were in London, Paris, and Prague. One of the things I noticed was the prevalence of marketing for the film “The Adventures of Tintin” already released in most of Europe but coming to the United States this December. At the time, the film was two months away for us Americans, so we hadn’t seen the same sort of widespread advertising for it. However, seeing it advertised in Europe got me thinking about how Americans would react to a character and a story that for the most part is beloved to a characteristically European audience.

For Lovers Only: How to Make a Movie with No Budget

Normally for a film to succeed in Hollywood it needs a pretty sizable budget. That’s the generally-accepted Hollywood method of making a film. Gather together a large sum of money to hire A-list stars, create expensive sets, and most importantly, to secure advertising space on every medium possible (television, print, billboards) so they can get audiences to watch the film in theaters. However, with the price of digital camcorders and still cameras that shoot video decreasing with every passing year, as well as the methods of distribution changing, the generally accepted (read: traditional) way of making a film is slowly being replaced. Now, filmmakers have the ability and flexibility to create the movies they want to create, without having to go through the studios and executives who would prefer to make money rather than make art. “For Lovers Only” is one example of this new method of filmmaking. And with the film’s success ($200,000 in profits within the first month of release alone), this method may be something worth looking at.

Film Review: For Lovers Only

It’s a rare occurrence in Hollywood for a no-budget film to make it and receive some sort of recognition. It’s an even rarer occurrence for it to actually make a profit. Yet “For Lovers Only,” an Independent film by Mark and Michael Polish (“Twin Falls, Idaho”; “The Astronaut Farmer”) has accomplished both of that, and more. Released in July, the film raked in approximately $200,000 in profits within the first few weeks alone (via The Wrap). A truly impressive feat for a film made in 12 days with a zero-dollar budget (literally) and only a DSLR Canon 5D Mark II. But more on the success of its marketing strategy in next week’s blog post; this week’s blog post analyzes the film itself.
