Do you want to be a filmmaker? Make a Film!

"Make a piece of NITRO that you throw in the audience's lap and someone will notice!" says Quentin Tarantino. What great advice! Listen to some of the top directors tell you to just make a movie if you want to be a filmmaker.

You do not need to wait to get your project funded - just make a movie - it's almost free now. I would focus on the story first too. You could shoot one scene from a feature script a week with your friends on the weekend. Do the Writing A Great Script Fast story development process first to make sure your script works. Everything else usually falls into place with a great script. Boring scripts are like those "waves" of bad films the directors in this movie talk about below. Your script needs to be DYNAMITE!

How To Write For 3D ........By Sherri Sheridan

Avatar is the new Star Wars for this generation of digital filmmakers. The visual fourth wall has just been shattered inviting the audience to now be in the film they are watching during a 3D IMAX type viewing experience. As a filmmaker and writer, you now have to consider things like Z depth, and how your story can literally reach out and grab the audience from the screen in full 3D glory – every scene. New Article from the big April 2010 NAB edition of Student Filmmakers Magazine.
