Under the Radar DVD of the Week: 'Produce Your Own Damn Movie!'
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“Produce Your Own Damn Movie!”
You’d be hard pressed to find someone who knows his way around a low-budget, independent film shoot better than Lloyd Kaufman, creator of “The Toxic Avenger” and founder of the storied indie film factory Troma Studios. So aspiring filmmakers looking for comprehensive how-to material could find no better source than Kaufman’s “Produce Your Own Damn Movie!” due out on DVD Tuesday.
If ever there were a jack-of-all-trades in low-budget, fringe filmmaking, it’s Kaufman, who boasts 190 credits as an actor; 35 as director; 29 as writer; 79 as producer; 11 as cinematographer; two as editor; two as composer, and 11 as miscellaneous crew.
Following in the path of 2005’s “Make Your Own Damn Movie!” and 2009’s “Direct Your Own Damn Movie!” Kaufman’s latest how-do documentary is packed with video vignettes depicting ways to get a movie off the ground (regardless of budget or lack thereof). And, making the most of his wide-ranging Hollywood connections, Kaufman works in numerous, informative interviews with such idiosyncratic filmmakers as David Cronenberg, Roger Corman, Joe Dante, Stan Lee, Eli Roth and others.
