Assassin Club is an independent action film directed by the talented Camille Delamarre. This adrenaline-fueled film takes audiences on a thrilling ride through the shadowy world of assassins, where loyalty is tested, alliances are formed, and the line between good and evil becomes blurred. With the freedom to explore unconventional storytelling and the ability to focus on raw and authentic performances, independent films like Assassin Club often showcase a unique vision and offer a refreshing departure from the formulaic nature of studio productions. But there are also drawbacks to independent films, usually in the production process. Oftentimes, directors switch back and forth between the two.
Camille Delamarre Explains the Different Between Working on Indie Films and Studios Films
Camille Delamarre is a French film director and editor. He works on both independent films and studio films. His first feature film, Brick Mansions, was an independent film that was released in 2014. The film was a critical and commercial success, and it helped to establish Delamarre as a talented director. In 2015, Delamarre directed The Transporter Refueled, a reboot of the Transporter franchise. The film was a studio film, and it was released to mixed reviews. However, the film was a box office success, and it helped to further Delamarre’s career.
Having bounced back and forth, seemingly as his leisure, we asked the director about the differences between working on an indie film and a studio film, and how it affects his approach to filmmaking, to which he explained:
The good thing [about independent films[ is you have a lot of liberty. You can really just make your own personal film. The bad thing is you have a lower budget, not a lot of time to shoot it. So, of course, the real challenge was to create a good production value, because in this kind of category, action, hitman movie, you have a lot of, of films in the, in the same category with a huge budget and a huge franchise.Camille Delamarre, Assassin Club Director
So when you arrive after that, and this is my goal, was to try to make a personal film to give to the audiences [and] also the occasion to see this kind of genre, action, hitman, you know very well, but with a lot of, like ,a heart and passion element. So I hope it will be, it will make the differences.
