Renaud Stanton Dupré is a filmmaker and founder of RenLogik, a production company out of Quebec. Here is one of the video's he directed called: Private Dancer.
Renaud Was good enough to answer a few quetions for me:
– I think the steps are pretty much the same wether the filmmaker is french or english. You come up with your idea, shop it around, find a producer who wants to back you, apply for a grant thenn cross your fingers and start praying. If that fails bribe your friends max your credit card and make it cause you have to. The only place where language differs is that in quebec there is more place for french projects but there are more french projects and you can apply for outside grants easier in english so it evens out
Is it more difficult to make an English language movie in Quebec as opposed to somewhere else?
– se 1 🙂
Do you think English filmmakers have found a niche in the French province of Quebec?
– I haven’t seen enough english film come out of quebec to judge.
