Lessons from the Biskind book

Peter Biskind’s Easy Riders Raging Bulls is a fascinating read, filled with lessons for young filmmakers. Here are my favorites:

1) Don’t do drugs.

2) Develop your own material.

3) Make inexpensive films and stay on budget.

4) Keep the ego reigned in.

Who made it out of the 1970’s that I admire and respect? Woody Allen. He understood these points.

More on this soon.


About kartiksingh

I have been living in Paris, France since 1996. I was born to Sikh parents who immigrated to the USA. I grew up outside of Kansas City, and at 18 went to Washington DC with the intention of becoming a diplomat. Five years later, I arrived in Paris and found my life purpose: to make films that bring hope, insight, and inspiration to the world. My debut feature film Callback premieres in September 2010 in New York. For more details on where you can see my films, look for me at www.kartikfilm.com
