im in the same boat as you, i would love to work on some low budget films (not the youtube thing i was on about..ive forgotten about that heh) or just make anything really.. but have no one around me who is really interested, and i'm 16 from the uk

I'm a student in Art & Design and Interactive Media. I'm hoping to move onto animation and Film Production. I allready have self taught skills in animation.
I've been messing around with film since buying my first camera several years ago. I've made a couple of short films mostly for school and college projects. However can never find help for making my own projects.
I have been studying art since a very young age (I attended art classes when I was young). I'm allways drawing things, that come into my head. I'm good at creating stories and often dream brilliant ideas (sometimes better than my concious ideas). I have many ideas I just need like-minded people to work with.
German Expressionism, Film Noir, Avant Garde film highly influence me. I love classic horror such as 'The Cabinet of Dr Caligari' and 'Nosferatu'.
My favourite film of all time is 'Blade Runner', because of it's amazing Film Noir atmosphere.
Time Burton is the most influential director to me. After reading his biography 'Burton on Burton' I was convinced that being a director was what I wanted to do.
Researching directors such as F.W. Murnau has been inspiring. He had such artistic vision that is lacking in many films these days. He could achieve so much without sound, it's amazing.
I aspire to become a proffessional Director/Writer. I would love to be able to write my ideas and then make them into films. If I could do that for a living, then I'd be happy.
