Perfect Imperfection Documentary Review

Perfect Imperfection: The Making and Saving of I'll Believe You (2009) is a must see documentary for any filmmaker, especially up and coming ones; even movie fans will find it interesting. It not only shows you the making of I'll Believe You, it also gives you a look at what it takes to make a film.

From idea generation to the final cut you will see how many people are involved in the process to make it work and be believable. The insights into casting and location choice are very interesting along with the unexpected; such as weather, set issues, sound, and of course...coffee!

What do you do once all the shooting is done, cast is gone, and you have poured your hearts and souls into a film that is not working and you can't re-shoot it? You get creative and never give up! It took six years for this film to become a reality and we can all learn from their experience. You can watch it as an extra on the
DVD.
