2018 Independent Spirit Awards: Ten Moviemakers Share the Lessons They Learned While Making Their Nominated Films

Ana Asensio (Director, Most Beautiful Island)

I thought that you had your film when you write and when you shoot it, but I realized that you actually make three films: the one that you write, the film that you shoot, and lastly the film that you edit. The editing part was a huge revelation for me. In terms of acting in the film, since it took me so many years to get the financing for the film that at some point I thought, “Oh my God, I’m getting to old to play this role.”

    Do you know of all the organizations that tried to push for a fighter union have there been, and how many still exist? Are they collaborating or competing with each other? Seems like these guys are farther along in the process than all other attempts. As an independent contractor myself, this is kind of interesting. I have no idea what the actual laws around independent contract work are, despite doing this for over 10 years 🙂
