4 Tricks of the Film Trade

  1. 1. Don’t major in film. Filmmaking is a craft that can be learned by doing. Instead of spending that $150,000 on tuition, use it to fund your first documentary. Photo credit: Flickr/DustyWrath
  2. 2. Know how to edit, film, and produce. You must be extremely nimble in how you bring value to the table. That said, you can’t do everything: know your limits, what you stand for, and where your interests lie. Pictured: Alexis Boding
  3. 3. If you don’t have the capital to make a film, volunteer. But let your goals be known early on! Ask your employer to look at your reels and plant little seeds with a long-term view. Photo credit: thetyee.ca
  4. 4. <ul><li>Deeds, not words. If you say you’ll be there at 7 a.m., be there at 7 a.m., no matter how small the task. People will remember that. </li></ul>Photo credit: Flickr.com/VTChEwbecca
