Cult & Underground Cinema

Pink8 Manifesto


*Film school is poison.

*Look for street superstars to be your cast.

*Your film must be made on no-budget, just sporadic money.

*Your film must be 96.5% improvised.

*The director must raise "get-by" money by finding a job that challenges their ethics.

*No HD Cameras

*The director must have a main character role in the film.

*Short films are NOT acceptable, it MUST be a feature you lazy bastards!!

*No 3D

*The cast must NOT know what your film is about.

*Filming must be done without any preparation or a traditional script.

*No Green Screen

*Special lighting is not acceptable.

*The director must edit the film alone.

*Mistakes are beautiful.

*Continuity is wrong.

*Bewildering, vague, self-indulgent, plot-less, risky, egotistical, limpid, raw, ugly, and imperfect are perfect.

*Technical film experience is inessential.

*Answer to one person only—yourself.
