What a Film Distributor is looking for. Tip #4

Move the camera in a planned and specific way to capture greatness
  • This is very closely related to the camerawork issue. (Discussed in Tip #3.)
  • As well as imaginative camera angles, the movement of the camera should be used a tool to further draw the audience into your story.
  • Camera movement should not be motivated by whether the actors are moving or not, it should be motivated by the actions and by the characters.

Simply look through the camera and see the greatness.

  • There is brilliant camerawork and there is abysmal camera work. Make sure you are not the latter, it cripples your filmmaking from the get go.
  • Never over estimate good framing techniques.
  • It is proven that imaginative camerawork increases the connection between your brilliant story line and your engaging audience. However, if the camerawork is amateur, weak and unmotivated, your greatly structured and grafted story line is not portrayed as such.
  • Just make sure that your choices are motivated by the characters and the scene.

What a Film Distributor is looking for. Tip #2

See the light in the beginning.

  • Lighting your film correctly and effectively automatically affects the way an audience judges your movie.
  • For example; Moody lighting and dark shadows and a light hearted comedy would not be suited. The two do not compliment one another and changes the way the audience views it.the way you light your film significantly affects how your audience perceives it. 
  • A light hearted comedy would be best suited with bright colours and flat lighting.
  • Innovative and imaginative lighting is a deal maker in successful filmmaking.

What a Film Distributor is looking for. Tip #1

A spectacular screenplay goes a long way.

  • Screenplay is vital.
  • The director, the actors, the equipment and the grind is all wasted if the story is useless.
  • The hard work needs to be put in right from when the pen touches the paper - this ensures that the story is good enough to sell.
  • Most people do not care about who directed the film, or whose in the film more than what the film is actually about.
  • Put the work in at the beginning so it can be seen at the end.
