Today, we had Jesse Roesler come in to talk about his career and experience as a film creator. He showed us his works such as The Starfish Throwers, and talked about how he became a film director. He talked about how hard but rewarding it can be to film a documentary, and his passion for filming. He’s also been hired by different companies to create different commercials.
He mentioned that Saint Paul is a good place for getting into the documentary scene. Jesse uses DXS Mark 2, Red Cameras, and Cannon, but it really depends on the type of mood he is trying to portray. He believes that going to film school, while not necessary, can help with networking and certain types of filming.
