In the first video in this 4-part series I talked about the three types of paralysis that afflict filmmakers - financial paralysis, organizational paralysis and creative paralysis. Now I want to start to suggest some solutions to these three things that can help you get on the road to making a microbudget feature film and even launching your filmmaking career.
If you haven't yet watched the first video you can do so here. Tell me what you think I missed out or your own experiences struggling with financial paralysis and, even better, how you overcame it. Doing so helps out everyone in the community.
