About

A Guerrilla Filmmaker is a filmmaker who may be short on money but not on passion and vision. They have an attitude of creativity and freedom. They are often stealth, mobile and innovative in their approach. They not only break the rules but work creatively within them. Guerrilla Filmmakers are the new breed of Independent Filmmakers who embody the sort of true independence that used to inspire the independent film movement in the past, but is now often lost in the shuffle of the faux independence propagated by Hollywood studios co-opting independent themes and styles.
One hallmark of independence is that it comes out of yourself. It isn't trying to blatantly copy somebody else (although you might have influences, which is different). It isn't contriving to look or feel independent by wearing a certain style of clothes or emulating certain directors. Independence means you have a voice that needs to be heard - a statement to make and a passion to make it.

Guerrilla filmmaking refers to a form of independent filmmaking characterized by low budgets, skeleton crews, and simple props using whatever is available. Often scenes are shot quickly in real locations without any warning, and without obtaining permission from the owners of the locations.

A Guerrilla Filmmaker may break laws, but not big laws. The little laws that are stupid may be broken, but the big laws that throw you in jail are not part of being a Guerrilla Filmmaker. The main law that the Guerrilla Filmmaker will break is the law of conventional wisdom. The laws of conventional wisdom have trapped everybody in the never-ending cycle of sameness, stupidity and cynicism. The Guerrilla Filmmaker therefore fights against the oppressive deadness of conformity and blind consumerism and seeks to revel in their own aliveness through their films - and to do so as a statement against the kind of soul death that seems to press in all around us.
A Guerrilla Filmmaker can also have a bigger budget and even shoot with expensive equipment. The key is that the attitude must be right. Without the right attitude, nothing good will ultimately come out of your efforts.
