I recently came across this clip of legendary filmmaker M Night Shyamalan discussing how he self-funds his films nowadays.
What I took from this is how powerful M Nights personal branding is. He's able to make a safe bet on himself because he's put so much effort into making his name synonymous with an exciting and unexpected movie-going experience.
What do you take away from learning about one of the biggest filmmakers of our time self-funds his own projects? What does it say about the importance of personal branding and the nature of the industry?
This is an awesome share Langley Coleman. Our fearless leader Richard "RB" Botto always say the best bet you can ever make is a bet on yourself. Thanks for sharing!
