Graduate students in the arts typically work toward a thesis project -- ideally, one that upon graduation could serve as a calling card for employment in the "real world." Reel Talent collects a dozen such calling cards, the work of students destined for varying degrees of success, plucked from the University of Southern California's film school archives. Presented on a double-sided DVD and including commentary tracks on several of the films, First Films by Legendary Directors invites viewers to enjoy genius in the raw. Directors and films represented include: George Lucas (Electronic Labyrinth, 1:42:08: A Man and His Car, and Freiheit ); Robert Zemeckis (The Lift and A Field of Honor); Richard Kelly (The Goodbye Place); Shawn Levy (Broken Record); Stephen Sommers (Perfect Alibi); James Foley (Silent Night); Richard Bare (The Oval Portrait); Jon Turteltaub (Whatever It Takes); and Kevin Reynolds (Proof).
