Guest Interaction with Mr. John Reiss

     

 

We had the opportunity to meet and interact with renowned film director Mr. John Reiss.

Mr. Reiss is a critically acclaimed film director who has produced and directed three feature films, including Bomb It, a film about graffiti and the battle over visual public space throughout the world. His experience of releasing Bomb It with a hybrid strategy was the inspiration for writing Think Outside the Box Office: The Ultimate Guide to Film Distribution in the Digital Era, the first step-by-step guide for filmmakers to distribute and market their films. Mr. Reiss now works with numerous film organizations, schools and festivals to present a variety of distribution labs and workshops around the world.

In this intimate meeting students (especially the aspiring directors) were able to ask him varied questions about the film industry and his productions which provided them with an insight into what it would be like to be in this line of work.
