Experimental Filmmaking for Dummies (Part 1): Why You Should Be Making Experimental Films

by Robert Hardy.

Here at NFS, we’ve covered experimental films from time to time, sharing details on how they’re made and things of that nature. Last month we even shared a delightful, albeit brief, history of experimental cinema that touched on a few of the core concepts and definitive filmmakers of the genre.

Despite these brief forays into the avant-garde, however, we’ve never actually talked about making experimental films. Until now, that is. In our new series, “Experimental Filmmaking for Dummies”, we’ll explore not only the multitude of reasons why every filmmaker can benefit from experimental filmmaking, but also how to get started with making shorts in all of the most popular experimental sub-genres. Stick with us on this one. It’ll be a fun ride.
