On Filmmaking

The more I study about filmmaking, the more I’ve come to realize it’s about preparation. It’s about that hundred little things you do before the camera ever rolls that make the difference between something that looks amateur and professional. From the script, to blocking, to proper writing, to finding the right people, to costuming- all of these and so much more are what you see on screen without realizing it. I’d almost say it’s a 90-10 ratio- 90% prep, and 10% filming, and the more you up the filming and lower the prep, the worse your production will be.
