10 Ways To Turn That Script Into A Movie ASAP
Posted By Ted Hope On May 30, 2013 @ 8:30 am In Truly Free Film | 98 Comments
We often wait and wait, strategizing and hoping, but for what? Most scripts never get made. Even if they “finish” a script, many people stop less half way before they get it done.
I would argue that most scripts don’t become films because the people behind them aren’t willing to face reality and do what is necessary to get them made. The dream of the knight sweeping down and rescuing them for their beauty/wisdom/talent/genius is a toxic poison. Wishing for privilege, wishing for good fortune, these dreams get in the way of recognizing the hard work that can often get things done.
Okay, money, connections, talent — they all have a great deal to do with success, but it is also a state of mind that is needed to make things real. Much of that mindset is preparation. Some of it is process. And some is that heady cocktail where action and philosophy mix. You want to get your movie made? Change how you are thinking, and then change your actions.
WARNING: The myth of hard work earning just rewards is equally false and debilitating, but if you want to change your outcomes, preparation is probably the key influencer.
Here’s my list for today of ten short cuts to production.
Any other suggestions you’d like to add to the list?
