Seriously he has good advice here, and yes this does apply to some other fields as well. Scoff at this advice if you want, but this is basically the blueprint for a lot of successful filmakers. Robert, Sam Raimi, and Kevin Smith are just a couple off the top of my head. And those guys are among my favorite film makers in the industry. The advice about your first film being about what you know, and using the resources around you is probably the best piece of advice ive ever heard.

He makes me want to become a film maker. Even though I want to be a writer. He's a really good teacher.

Great advice from a great filmmaker without all the sugar coated crap, straight to the point. Robert Rodriguez is and always will be my kind of guy.

>Filmwriters are the ones really making the movie but they can't bring them to life no matter how hard they try.

You got a good story, write it down and then find someone else who`s interested in living the adventure you created with a camera in his/her hands.

...and the guy ruins your conception in a couple of moves leaving you no chance to argue for he`s the boss
My mother studied in the script writer faculty, she knows how it goes. You cannot be sure of your script`s safety even if you wrote it for a cartoon like she did.
