Do you need math to be a filmmaker?

Of course you need math! I know it sounds like a contradiction but in a good way. If math doesn’t cut it for you, don’t worry about it. Go back to your work on the bus or if you’re good at math, you can do some visual proof of it. The key is knowing what you’re doing and not losing sight of what you want to do.

Don’t Be Afraid of Trying

Don’t be afraid to try. Sometimes what’s important to you is just not practical to do. Sometimes you’re going to make something that’s not technically possible, but it’s not something it’s not worth exploring. There are some creative projects that are out there that you’ll definitely want to go for.

If you have any questions, ask! I know it’s hard but people are good, people care. Some might say that asking is part of the fun of making stuff, but I say no. Being a good neighbor is worth it for the right reason. Sometimes you have a problem that you want to solve, and you feel like it’s more of a chore than a pleasure. I have lots of stories of a project that I wasn’t so sure I wanted to make because I thought of it as something that could be hard. The project changed my attitude. Then I said, fuck it, let’s do it.

Don’t Forget Your Audience

Some folks get in their own way. Some folks don’t always understand where they should and shouldn’t be listening. Some folks don’t have a real answer to a problem. So listen to what you hear and put your attention where it belongs: your project and what you need to do it.

What is your biggest project you just didn’t get around to doing? How did you get there? Let us know in the comments below!
