Armed only with a DSLR and a rented boom mic, this 3-man crew shot a short film in one day with very little budget as an output for the Guerrilla Filmmaking Workshop

Guerrilla filmmaking is the process of producing film using inexpensive equipment and with as little crew as possible. Because of its “shoot-and-run” philosophy, it has become a popular trend among struggling and established filmmakers who want creative freedom in telling stories that rock the world with sensitive and sometimes shocking themes.

A guerrilla filmmaker according to Robert Rodriguez, director of the classic “El Mariachi”, is a rebel without a crew. In its truest sense, a guerrilla filmmaker goes into war without enough artillery but trusts his/her guts and skills to survive. A guerrilla filmmaker is someone who’s not afraid to risk everything to make the images in his head come to life. (source: Guerrilla Filmmaking Workshop module)

The 2015 Guerrilla Filmmaking Workshop in Davao City is now open for registration. For more details click HERE.

In the video below, some of Davao’s independent filmmakers who are advocates of guerrilla filmmaking share their experience in commemoration of the 10th Mindanao Film Festival.
