The first part of our three part ‘How To Make A Movie Feature’ for UK Film Mag TOTAL FILM is now out. A full eight pages of starter tips from Team Living Spirit!
Here is one little chunk from this first part…
GET A CAREER PLAN
Most people don’t think beyond the movie they’re making right now be it a short film exercise, experimental music promo, viral email attachment or independent feature film. That’s the big reason why, for most filmmakers, it takes so long to get anywhere: they don’t have a goal and a plan of how to get there.
Contrast that with Christopher Nolan. He went from a 3K black-and-white avant-garde thriller called Following, to Memento for $10m and ultimately onto Batman Begins with a blockbuster budget, all in under 10 years. He never began a film without knowing what he wanted to do next and was already working on that project.
