Filmmaking

19 Jul

from Wikipedia:
Filmmaking is the process of making a film. Filmmaking involves a number of discrete stages including an initial story, idea, or commission, through scriptwriting, casting, shooting, editing, and screening the finished product before an audience that may result in a film release and exhibition. Filmmaking takes place in many places around the world in a range of economic, social, and political contexts, and using a variety of technologies and cinematic techniques. Typically, it involves a large number of people, and can take from a few months to several years to complete.

The last line makes me laugh…..”it involves a large number of people and can take from a few months to several years to complete”.

If filmmaking were really that simple, everyone would be doing it. Oh….wait a minute….Everyone IS doing it……
