In the first three episodes in this series I talked about the kinds of paralysis that filmmakers faced - and some solutions to those forms of paralysis: specifically financial and organizational paralysis. In this webisode, I focus on creative paralysis. How do you get a great story? How do you turn it into a great script? What do you think?
Have you spent years sitting on a great story, waiting and hoping that it will get made? You're not alone. I know lots of filmmaker and get emails from many more that have "filmmaker paralysis" - the inability to move forward with their feature film project. As part of a four-part series of vlog posts I discuss here the causes of filmmaker paralysis.
I've watched a lot of microbudget feature films and I see the same common problem with them over and over. Well, two problems actually. Here I discuss what that is and how I think you can avoid it.
I get a lot of questions about marketing & distribution. It's no wonder: who wants to go to all the trouble of making a feature film and have it watched by 10 people.
I get a lot of email and Facebook messages every day from people from all over the world. It’s incredibly rewarding to feel that connection to so many filmmakers and see the possibility of building communities and movements.
