We are intrigued by the work of our favorite filmmakers. Regardless of who that filmmaker may be, many capture our interest and excitement by the way in which they present their art. There is very often a continuity in a filmmaker’s work that is marked by an indelible way of capturing a shot or editing a scene or presenting the dialogue.
The Filmmakers’ Vision presents the core beliefs and intrinsic basic philosophies of filmmakers. To understand a body of work by a filmmaker, it is important to explore the filmmaker’s perspective, either through her or his writings or interviews. By discovering the motivations, thoughts, experiences, and beliefs that influenced the creation of the art of these filmmakers, hopefully, you will begin to develop your own artistic vision.
- What is it that you want to communicate to the world?
- How do you view your world and what does this perspective mean, not only to you, but to your audience?
- What do you want your audience to feel and understand?
Digging deep to create your own personal artistic philosophy will add texture and layers to your films.
Enjoy these filmmakers’ visions and let us know how these artists’ words affect you and, over time, help you to develop your own philosophy that you will begin to incorporate into your own films.
