  11. 11. How does your Work Compare to Professional Film? <ul><li>My film may have lacked financial backing but it was a different and subtle approach to the mainstream films. </li></ul><ul><li>This suited the thriller genre for example it worked really well for the Blair Witch Project. </li></ul><ul><li>A film is mainly dependent on the quality and imagination of the script and the producer’s approach. </li></ul><ul><li>I would be interested in using different techniques if I was given the chance to make the whole film. </li></ul>
