Kelley Baker calls himself The Angry Filmmaker, although he seems like a nice enough guy.
Since 1982 he has produced thirteen short films and three features, using a DIY approach that he has promoted through countless seminars to aspiring filmmakers and two books:
The Angry Filmmaker Survival Guide Part One: Making the Extreme No Budget Film (2009 – 2nd Edition coming in 2017) The Angry Filmmaker Survival Guide Part Two: Sound Conversations With (un)Sound People(2012)
For his WordSpace event Kelley reads and tells stories from his latest book Road Dog, a chronicle of seven years crisscrossing the U.S.A. with his chocolate lab in an endless quest to get his work shown and to spread the word that filmmaking can exist outside of not only Hollywood but just about any structure we usually associate with “the business.”
Come along for the ride.
This event is recommended for aspiring filmmakers (angry or not), fans of Labrador retrievers, and anyone who wants to hear more about teaching sound recording to the employees of a porn company, sharing rum shots at Hank Williams grave, or getting kicked out of the Prayer Tower at Oral Roberts University.
