Transcript for NY Film Academy Students' Ultimate Oscar Parody
Thank Karen Jamie -- we showed you some very funny and creative short films. Submitted to hot sunny insert grant from students at the New York Film Academy they wanted to celebrate the Oscars and he then this weekend we offer -- challenge. Make a short film that includes all my movies that were up for best picture. And guess what they rose to that challenge let's take a look from their masterpiece the -- but doesn't the Dallas hospitals in Nebraska that. It -- please bring -- another -- Thank you. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Selling me this pan. I don't have to sell you this -- -- a millionaire. I won the lottery. So means. With the new release. They did it all there and bringing on senior director acts as the that the mind you guys -- can command and for the mountaineer until I am. Ultimate match up and they declined he's a senior director than Al Bailey welcome your producer -- -- -- -- -- and I'm sure with many other projects as well. Let cool idea and union -- and the initial idea was great it was -- actually one. Yeah. -- we may Casey and yeah. Do you -- to. But but then execution. Was just amazing -- is this something you knew your students were up for -- like. Only -- -- you don't want to have to be up for it I mean you have to when someone gives you an opportunity to do something you have to take the opportunity and -- with a and when -- turned to me and said we need a script for a shoot that we're -- -- tomorrow morning. -- -- of course let's do it and we put together students and staff. To create short film for you guys and it was a blast what so many other ideas to. No we started out with a really the wolf Wall Street somehow came to our minds because there was so much to kind of go off and and it kind of -- -- typical process that. A -- story would have you know we started out with the scene that they did in the nursery in the wolf from Walsh that's kind of where it started. And we actually think -- that -- -- specimens that is a little risque and how we gonna do that and it's someone in our look kind of like pitch session -- said you know -- It was just hard to bring all the characters there you don't -- about and -- Why don't we why -- we get all the characters together in that scene where he's trying to get people to sell him the patent and -- -- it came about. And do it does it take capture and and to do -- we -- know which -- how many people does it take to do something like this. He had to act he -- about. Six Simonsen meant crew and then obviously costly I was had to pick somebody from each of the movies that was nominated for best picture also. Riyadh -- A lot of people altogether want to cast of not having nine people -- overnight films me. -- the crew to be able to do something where you can have that kind of camera movement and try to make it look kind of you know professional -- -- -- -- As a group now -- you're so into the fountain city you probably know better than anyone else what are some of -- big movies that your most excited about. Moment of the films that we just -- in the Academy Awards -- -- -- what had the biggest buzz at least from my experience at the school and your film academy. Was happy and yeah that's what people kind of we're talking about around the water cooler. And I think it's because it really touches -- that age group number one you know that most of our students are in their twenties and -- figuring out. New ways interact. -- that's what's happening. The way we communicate with each other the way that we used -- for instance -- not saying who would have thought right exactly -- And I'm having -- that opportunity to look at what the world. Could be like as the technology progresses I think excited people -- -- start to make them think I know that when I saw the film. We were just talking about it afterwards what was realistic what wasn't realistic about -- in terms of what we thought could happen in the future. Right and I think it's in -- say that the people and that age group are always thinking about their futures. And I think that television film. Is something that -- untouchable for a lot of people if you had to give advice to someone. That wants to get into film funding deal isn't that something students begin watching here would wanna. -- who now there's so much opportunity for someone whose interest in this field to get their hands on some sort of technology to just start doing it. And that's that's the New York Film Academy philosophy is you can't just talk about it. You have to do it so we want to get technology into their hands and so what you can do if you're not out of film school is use the technology that's available to you. And then when you have the opportunity you'd want to go on and study more you'll get to learn about. -- more interest in technology world war bigger technology or things that could -- other types of. Take a look types of shots -- create other types of. Work that perhaps your mobile phone can't but you have an opportunity with this technology right in -- with him. So much of the issue you know losing ginger brought up this idea of this very untouchable industry getting into movies -- feel so distant. There's the other issue which is what you start to create that work will people not like -- and what happens if they don't get what's your advice to people who are afraid of that. You can't be afraid of -- The thing is at some point along the way you may make a project the people aren't penalized and into the the best directors make films. That people sometimes don't like but you gotta keep working through that. That's part of the experience of becoming a better artist you have to fail. First before you know how to succeed in most cases and you you just have to do it I mean that's that's kind of our motto is like. -- that equipment in your hand and start telling stories. And an opportunity to get into the industry or at least to get people assume you work nowadays. It is completely different from what what was when I went to film school twenty years ago. This film that we made for example. This. Has been seen already by thousands of people it could as a national media it's unbelievable and it. Speaking of social media Alan do you see it and social media and -- -- talk about you given your hand you do the film but is it that when -- changed how films are made in the future. Social media. Boy in already highs you know exactly -- David -- you have the ability to get that out straightaway you know you can be complete amateur -- make up. -- -- to -- I have an incredible -- -- friends and with the power of social media sharing that everyone can see thank you got so much thank you to the high. And the New York Film Academy and thank you proper hardware we know that take you lots -- -- together. And the sick -- let's tell the students -- -- solves I think senator but it will be on the project this did they're busy they had worked out. Projects -- Hensley is -- -- after promising.
