The Business of Filmmaking: A few things they don't teach you in film school Ep81
Show Notes

In this episode, Sue dives deep into a topic that not typically covered in film school - the business of filmmaking. 🎥💼

Here are three key takeaways from this episode:

1️⃣ The Craft vs. The Business: While film school teaches us a lot about the art and technique of filmmaking, it often doesn't teach us about the essential business aspects. Producing work in the film industry involves much more than just the craft of making the film. But don't be discouraged! If you aspire to be your own boss and create your own work, you're in the right place to learn the business side of the industry.

2️⃣ Building a Sustainable Career: If you want to earn a living and have a long-lasting career in filmmaking, it's important to create and initiate your own projects. While specializing in a specific area and working solely on other people's productions might be an option, it may not provide the financial stability and creative fulfillment you desire. This episode explores how to make filmmaking a sustainable career by creating meaningful work that resonates with audiences.

3️⃣ The Power of Consistency: Consistency is key in many pursuits, including filmmaking. However, it can be a challenge to maintain consistency while nurturing your creative abilities. Sue's sharing some thoughts on this and more.
