Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
WILLIAM C. GERRITY had lived an amazing life working in film and television. He has worked on such seminal films as ALICE’S RESTAURANT, THE FRENCH CONNECTION, THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT, SOPHIE’S CHOICE and on into such films of the 90s as SEVEN. The list of projects he has had a hand in is nothing short of stunning. Tonight on Inquiry we speak with him about what it takes to budget a film, the challenges of shooting on location, what an Assistant Director is responsible for and what happens when one of your stars walks off the set and the production grinds to a sudden halt. If you love film, don’t miss this very informative and entertaining insider’s look at the art and business of film. Our conversation continues in Part Two.
