Learning filmmaking by yourself is, in many respects, a lot like learning photography. There’s some technical to figure out, sure, but there’s also a lot of observing the work of others and then doing. And many of the tips contained in this video from Darious Britt also apply to photography. At least, for the first few days.
Darious makes it clear in the beginning that he’s not saying film school is a bad thing. He attended film school himself. But not everybody’s in a position to attend film school and rack up a lot of debt. Perhaps you’re starting late in life and have other responsibilities that demand your time and attention so can’t attend film school. Whatever your reasons, this 30 day plan will get you on track.
