What is the Most Important Part of Filmmaking?

This video is a quick reminder of what is most important in the filmmaking process.

This is the glue in what makes a film come together.

Without this key element, a film is one hundred times more difficult to make.

I won’t spoil the answer but I’m sure most you already know what it is.

If you have never heard this before then I recommend you put it into practice on set.

It will make your pre-production, on-set, and post-production experiences easier.
