Do You Want to Be a Filmmaker for the Right Reasons?

    This is a question all these tenacious filmmakers had to ask themselves at some point and if you are an aspiring filmmaker, you’ll have to ask yourself the same thing.

    When asked to give advice, John Ridley (Screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave) immediately responded, “Decide early on whether you really want to make films or whether you want to be famous, because if you want to make films and want to tell stories you can do it.”

    Enjoy this excellent compilation of advice from acclaimed filmmakers who evidently speak from experience. From actors to cinematographers, directors, composers and screenwriters, all of them share nuggets of advice every aspiring filmmaker can glean from.

    Everybody is going to tell you it’s impossible, but evidently it’s not.”
    – Hans Zimmer
