The Evolution of Short Films Part 4

In the fourth episode of my series of free videos aimed at helping new filmmakers, I share some advice for new screenwriters. Over the years I've learned some helpful things, and in this particular video I deal with a couple ideas specifically.

The writing life in general is a challenging one, and screenwriting in particular has it's own unique challenges. I particularly encourage new screenwriters to keep writing since the evidence indicates that successful screenwriters don't start selling scripts or getting attention until they have written 6 or 7 feature screenplays. Even if you're starting out right now with the goal of writing and making a short film, it is incredibly worthwhile to write several short films scripts so you can polish your writing skills first and then get to work on the production aspects of a first or second short film. I also encourage you to check out part 1, part 2, and part 3 of this series of videos if learning more about making short films is something you are interested in. Here is part 4.
