Abstract /

The article studies the frontiers between professional and amateur film/video practices, taking two films located in that area, but with very different proposals. Tren de sombras is a reflection about the nature of cinema, taking the home movies as paradigm, and developed from a metafilmic perspective. The Blair Witch Project comes too from an amateur and “found” cinema, formally reflexive, but at the service of a thriller type of film with a clear narrative and commercial approach.

Keywords /

Amateur films, home movies, experimental cinema, reflexivity.
