3 Biggest Mistakes Every Filmmaker Must Avoid
This video, 3 Biggest Mistakes Every Filmmaker Must Avoid, hits on some good points. For us students the 2nd and 3rd points are the ones that I want you to pay special attention to. Point 1 is more for those who wish to make filmmaking a career.
Point 2 – Focus On Gear – points out that story must come first. Without a good story no amount of gear will make it a good movie.
Point 3 – Lack Of Quality – you have many resources in your toolkit, don’t forget them. Camera Shots, angles, movement, mis-en-scene, lighting, audio, editing techniques, etc.
Everything you learn in this class builds upon itself. What that means is, things you learned week 3 are still true and should be used in your films.
