Independent Filmmaking in 2018

Below you will find a list of what I feel an indie filmmaker should be thinking or somewhat reminding themselves in 2018. 1. The Internet has been a Godsend tool to revive indie filmmaking, offering indie filmmakers direct road to their audience. However, you still need to build your audience/following, and that takes time and patience, lots of it. So if you are at the start of your career remember that it will take time to build your audience, so give yourself time and be patient. 2. Luckily nowadays we are spoiled for choice when it comes to platforms hosting content. Choosing the right one for you is a difficult decision, and a lot must be taken into consideration while you do that. From my experience, every film requires the different approach to distribution and marketing. So spend some time analysing your movies’ needs as well as the platform you are thinking of using for displaying/distributing your work on. 3. As an indie filmmaker you must remember that film is not only an art form …

What Is Creativity?

In my opinion creativity “lives” (yes, I do think creativity is alive) in small details and can be found in the most unusual and unexpected places, usually at times when you, the creator, don’t expect it to take hold of you. Humans are creative beings (just look at the road we travelled from the Early Man to our modern civilisation) and luckily for us, creativity is expressed in countless ways and across the board. It can be hidden in kindness, cooking, loving other people, reading books, lovemaking etc. Unfortunately, over the centuries creativity has often been mistaken as this mysterious colossal creature that is rare and happens only to the “chosen few”. Whoever tells you that creativity is not for everyone, is merely bullshitting you to keep you away from reaching your hidden potential and expressing what dwells deep in your soul, trying to get out. Creativity is everything that surrounds us (so please do look around what mother nature has created for us: look at the house you live in; look at the modern …

9 Vital Visual Content Creation Tips

If you are interested in creating visual marketing tactic think about the following: What is your message to your audience? What do you want your audiences and viewers see when they see your content? What is at least one primary characteristic that you want your audience to associate with you and your visual content? Research on other brand and content videos to research their shooting styles. If you like the style, you could copy it without having to spend lots of money while shooting. If you choose a particular stylistic approach and it isn’t working, change it. The change can be drastic or subtler, depending on your approach. Try to see what your audience likes about your content and try to recreate more of that. Interact with your audience by asking questions or get feedback from them before releasing your content. Please do remember that big brands have massive budgets to spend on content creation. It doesn’t necessarily mean the content is useful in any way (I’m sure you can think of at least ten dreadful …
