6 INTANGIBLE ESSENTIALS TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL FILMMAKER
The prerequisites to becoming a successful filmmaker can be many or none. We say if there are prerequisites then they’re intangible. That’s why we put together this list, 6 Intangible Essentials To Become A Successful Filmmaker. Let’ get into them.
THE FILMMAKER MUST BE…
1) A PLANNER THAT EXECUTES: Planning is great and it should be done before executing. However, if you just plan and don’t execute you just planned to fail.
2) DISCIPLINED: You have to be willing to do what you know you’re supposed to do day after day, even when you don’t feel like it or when it seems it’s not working. This can only be done with discipline. Discipline is a root that will bear fruit for you and your generations to come.
3) DRIVEN (UNWAVERING DETERMINATION): It’s been said, don’t measure an individual by their height. That is, you don’t measure an individuals drive by what you see on the outside. Drive lives on the inside. And this is a good thing because if others saw how driven you are they might attempt to stifle you before you even get started.
4) CONFIDENT: You must be confident in not only what you can do but also confident that you can learn what you yet don’t know how to do. This confidence is what will lead you to continuous growth not only as a filmmaker, but also as a human.
5) HUMBLE: No matter how confident you become in everything you’ve learned and are learning, be humble! Remember, there was, or will come a time, when you didn’t know what you now know. Don’t walk around as if you knew it all along. Humbleness, true righteousness.
6) PASSIONATE: You may have all of the above, but if you don’t have the passion for filmmaking, then why do it? Answer that question and then see if it’s still worth it.
AND YOU MUST NOT FORGET…
SUCCESS IS SUBJECTIVE: Your success doesn’t have to be and isn’t what others project it to be. Discover what success is to you. Success transcends material things, it can very well be intangible.
