5.0 out of 5 stars I DROPPED OUT OF FILM SCHOOL FOR THIS! March 28, 2006
Format:DVD
No, just kidding, but I did find this set informative and entertaining. You can learn a lot about filmmaking from the errors of others, and Make Your Own Damn Movie shows that in spades. And with over 20 hours of content, it's a steal at $50. If you're an aspiring filmmaker or even just a fan of Troma, the Make Your Own Damn Movie Box Set is for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars $50 promotion for the filmmakers movies July 12, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me just say that for some people this DVD will be great to see an independent working on his films. But you can see that kind of stuff on special features of better movies. Robert Rodriguez has a 10-minute filmschool on each of his DVD's and they give more information.

The thing I didn't like about this DVD is that it says it's filmschool in a box, but it seems more like a promotion for the filmmakers movies and his company. He had on one part on how to raise money and the only thing he said was there is no one way to raise money and then he showed a session of his actors performing for some investors, but it was not helpful. He still didn't tell you how to get the investors to get a performance.

For $50 and something that promised filmschool in a box it didn't deliver. Get the book instead. I think the concept of a DVD like this is great but it didn't deliver.

Buy it to check it out if you want to and make up your own mind about it. But I don't recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really does beat film school. March 28, 2006
Format:DVD
This is a great, comprehensive set of DVDs for both experienced and aspiring filmmakers. It's informative, hilarious, and above all, practical. Kaufman's low budget filmmaking lessons are more relevant to people who want to make their own films than anything you'd learn at film school-- and a hell of a lot cheaper, too. And to top it off, the interviews and behind-the-scenes footage are really, really funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make a movie the troma way!! October 27, 2006
Format:DVD
This is a must have for any serious filmmaker. Lloyd Kaufman is the genius behind Troma and one of the coolest people on the planet. This 5 DVD set basically sucks the 30+ years of independent filmmaking knowledge out of Mr. Kaufman's brain and spills it on the table for everyone to learn from. everything from Scriptwriting to production to Marketing and distribution. Buy a copy today and while your at it buy a copy of The Toxic Avenger novel. Good bedtime reading for all the kiddies.
