Simon Cade is at it again, sharing his brilliant piece of advice while he himself is continually learning how to make movies. As a freelancer, he sets his own schedule, which is great and terrifying for master procrastinators.
We all know procrastination is not ideal, and we all know we should be making to do lists and spreading out the work over several weeks instead of cramming to get projects done last minute. But Cade remarks this last minute panic is not necessarily bad.
He suggests setting tangible and frequent deadlines that more people are involved in. If he were the only one setting the deadline for himself, it would hardly make a difference. Collaboration, in this and all other areas of filmmaking, is key.
In this case, Cade even keeps himself accountable to all his followers with his current projects proving he is a man of his word. Watch this video and figure out what works for you, whether you are a fellow filmmaker or creative.
