There are extremely talented potential filmmakers out there that never make a movie because they just can’t bring themselves to take the leap of faith voiceofandhra. Saying yes to making a movie starts with an attitude that regardless if your movie is entertaining or terrible at least you give it an honest go to see if you got the fire in you to make movies.
In the world of making of movies, especially at the indie film level, there are zero guarantees that every aspiring filmmaker that sets out to go from screenplay to distributed movie will make it to the end. Making movies is risky creatively and financially. Sometimes a movie falls apart during pre-production, filming or in post-production for lots of different reasons.
Making a movie to me is like gambling. You try your best as a filmmaker to tilt the odds in your favor as much as possible so you can win. Professional gamblers make educated bets and so should filmmakers కోవిడ్ సమయంలో . The one thing that successful gamblers and filmmakers need is the attitude that they are going to go all in on their movie making risk.
Saying yes to making a movie is really putting your ass out there creatively and financially. Many indie films are funded through family, friends, online movie crowd funding or your own cash. I’m still on the fence if it’s harder to say yes to making a movie with money from family and friends and your own pocket or to deal with film investors.
Honestly, using online movie crowd funding to me is risk free filmmaking. The people that donate aren’t giving you money expecting to ever see anything back or get a return on investment. It’s like gambling with a bankroll that’s free. When I donate money to the people that set up shop outside of stores I don’t expect anything back when I put money in the box or bucket.
