    I made three bad mistakes when I was 15 and 16... but that's what you get when you hire someone who's barely hit puberty.

    I've come to really appreciate the conventional directing and editing in films like When Harry Met Sally, or Planes Trains and Automobiles. I'm tired of filmmakers trying to show off how badass they...

    Agreed. Film still looks significantly better. Remember when we all thought the DVX100b looked like film?

    Do you still get work with it? I’ve never shot film and I think it’d be a lot of fun if it were affordable.

    Wow, I never knew that there was such an issue with counterfeits. I thought OP was paranoid until I read the rest of the posts. As a paranoid dude in general, this is going to cause me to worry about...

    I understand the value of pessimism but I also think it’s good to aim high. Also it helps to have big numbers to tell potential investors so they have some hope of profiting. Cheers.

    It depends on what kind of risks you want to take on. If you start a new LLC, that's a new legal entity. If your film breaks some laws or you get sued, they can only take money from that film. If you...

    Most people are answering that you learn what lights you need by experience, but you can also figure out what lights you need with an understanding of math and physics.

    Thanks I hope you like it! An Amazon reviewer just called me a "mildly misogynistic neckbeard" so hopefully you have a better impression of me.

    Thanks, I hope you like it! Although if you have daughters you might find it rather disturbing at times... I did a pretty good job documenting asocial behavior from young men. With that said, I've...

    Thanks Bill! Yep, I had an extremely fun and educational experience. Living with interesting people around the country, and spending 6 years writing a 500-page book has improved my screenwriting...

    A good DP needs to understand the story REALLY well. I would never hire a DP who wasn't extremely interested in the story.

    Yeah, getting people to watch/read anything you create (and even pay for it!) is nearly impossible. It's a rough uphill battle any direction you go. I do have a documentary I want to make eventually,...
