Rebel Without a Crew: The Series

To mark the 25th anniversary of EL MARIACHI, Robert Rodriguez and El Rey Network will invite five amateur filmmakers to write, shoot and edit a brand-new feature length film with only $7,000. Go90 who will stream the six-episode, one-hour series capturing the filmmakers’ process as well as the filmmakers’ final feature films. Inspired by Rodriguez’s wildly popular book, “Rebel Without a Crew: THE SERIES” is designed to mentor and inspire a new wave of independent filmmakers.

As these filmmakers embark on their projects, Rodriguez will revisit his roots and also write, shoot and edit a new feature film for $7,000.00.

Please take the time to answer these thoroughly and honestly. Don’t worry about the answers being too long, we’d rather know too much than not enough. Getting to know you as a person and a filmmaker is *vital* to our selection process.

*Casting is open to US Residents Only, ages 18+ who have not directed a full length feature and have access to a script that they own all the rights to and are available for six weeks of filming in October/November.
