This is the third video in my series on filmmaker paralysis. If you've found yourself stuck stressing about how to organize your shoot, feeling overwhelmed by all the details, this one is for you. I know I was like a deer in the headlights the first time we decided to make a no-budget feature film. But in the end, we had a really tight shoot and got our award-winning film in the can in 12 days. This is some of the ways that we went about overcoming organizational paralysis.
What do you think?
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.
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.
Are you trying to build a career by making the kinds of films that are known to be successful? Or are you trying to push the envelope and create films that break the mold?
