John Waters, famed director from and of Baltimore, found most of his crew and (crazy) cast for his early films from among his immediate neighbors. During this period, he thought editing was when the film in the film magazine ran out or so he sez in an interview. Anyway, he learned his craft back in the working class ‘hood with his friends and today is a major industry director.
There are at least hundreds of formal and informal groups around the nation engaged in making films. They are feeding the Nation’s hundreds of film festivals with thousands of films.
