Happy Sunday, Creative Army!

Have you had a creative weekend so far? I have some content here for you that is sure to get the creative juices flowing, so grab your coffee, and let's dive in.

I know many of you just finished November Write Club and are asking yourself, "what's the next goal?" Should you move on to the next script? Get feedback and submit your project to contests? Sure! But have you thought about the possibility of producing your film yourself? To see if this is doable, you'll need to start your pre-production, which encompasses a myriad of steps, and I have a couple of videos that will help you understand this process.

First up, we've got The Media Insider with an overview of pre-production, including developing the script, building your budget, assembling your team, pitching your project, and more. But if you want to take things a step further and get hands-on help with this step, Stage 32 can help with classes and labs on every step of the pre-production process, no matter the budget.

Next, we have a more story-driven way to look at pre-production in this video from FilmRiot. Here, you can see how theme, character, and tone will help dictate all of the decisions made by a director. You still need to do all the less creative business side of pre-production, but this mindset can also ensure that you remember the end result at every state and not get lost in the weeds.

I also recommend checking out my book, Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers. Understanding your audience will have a massive impact on your project from the very early stages, as it helps with financing, branding, and marketing.

As always, here at Stage 32, we love to share stories and knowledge with our fellow film fans. Know someone who would love this content? Share it with them! Tag them below!

Wishing you a very happy, healthy, & creative Sunday.

Cheers,

RB
