Filmmaking is our passion, even if we are working on someone else’s project.
IT’S NOT ALWAYS PRETTY BUT WE LOVE IT.
There are moments that we ask ourselves, “Why aren’t we filming yet?!” There is far more prep work required to make a great film that just a good one.
Ideas are many, implementation of ideas are not. It takes a dedicated team working together to accomplish great results. Surrounding yourself with talent, that in some cases, far exceeds your own is best.
We write all screenplays in-house and can't be understated that proper story telling takes many years to master. You have to write your script based on your budget not the other way around.
This is an important step and makes a huge difference! It matters what you point your camera at. There are things you can do to make the most of your circumstances but starting right is always important.
The Process Continued...
One of the hardest parts of creating a film is knowing who is good and who is right for a part. Those two thing often are at odds with each other. Even if a person is talented are they right for the part?
Shotlisting or storyboarding can be fun or you can be Werner Herzog and say screw the shotlist! Probably not, for us mortals we need something to keep us on track. Shotlisting is a great exercise.
After you've taken all your antacids and Tylenol it's time to jump in and commit! You don't commit neither do your cast and crew so make it happen! Lots of trouble shooting is all I can say.
