On Being a Young Filmmaker with Big Dreams

Young artists are filled with immense passion and drive. They are bursting at the seams with a desire for life and to achieve a significant existence and presence in the world. I often feel overwhelmed by all of the dreams that I wish to fulfill and all the barriers that make them seem impossible to reach. Breaking into the film industry often feels like an insurmountable goal. There is so much to learn and everything is moving at lighting speed.

This blog is designed to help fellow young filmmakers achieve their big dreams. It will be a relevant resource as well as a discussion forum, where other filmmakers can contribute their own advice, ideas, stories, or questions. This blog will be a valuable tool for anyone trying to get their foot in the door of this amazing but challenging industry.

What are the new trends in filmmaking? How can you beat the competition? How is your youthfulness beneficial? What can YouTube do for you? How do you embrace the changes in filmmaking that the 21st century brings? How do you get people to watch your work? How can you utilize the vast amounts of social media? What are the best ways to connect with other filmmakers and potential collaborators?

How do you find your unique voice as a filmmaker?

Let’s embrace our youth and pursue our dreams with a fiery passion!
