When inspiration in waning, when you feel creatively sapped,what do you do? How do you stay fresh?

I travel , get away from movie people. Movie people and movie towns are so depressing.

In doing work in this industry, how do I not grow jaded and make sure I maintain a sense of wonder, a joy of discovery, an appreciation of mystery, and love of simply doing?

How do I determine if someone is truly worth collaborating with?

Nov 10, 9:33AM EST0

I personally before collaborating with someone try to find out about their taste of cinema , what kind of movies they watch and talk about , and do they know who is Stanley Kubrick.

Nov 10, 10:09AM EST0

How much do you have to compromise as a filmmaker because of financial restriction or business?

Nov 10, 9:06AM EST0

What's harder for a film maker: Getting started or being able to keep going?

Nov 10, 8:15AM EST0

Buying camera equipment is the easiest part of the filmmaking, and to find what you want to shoot and shoot it is the hardest part.  It's never been easier than right now in the history of cinema to make a movie , I would say to convince yourself that you still want to make movies is the hardest part

Nov 10, 10:14AM EST0

What was the best part about doing this movie?

Nov 10, 8:11AM EST0

When you start shooting at documentary film you start as a filmmaker.  after you are done shooting a documentary you become activist, you become a liar, you become a manipulator you become a smooth talker you become a politician you become a cameraman you become a sound guy you become your own assistant. To shoot a documentary film you have to be much more than just. Being a filmmaker.

Nov 10, 10:17AM EST0

Do you have other movies?

Nov 10, 7:37AM EST0

Yap before this I have made like few short documentaries . all of my work is on the same YouTube channel , firth ape production

Nov 10, 10:18AM EST0

What is the one mistake most filmmakers make regardless of experience?

Nov 10, 6:57AM EST0

They just do film making , you can't be a truly independent filmmaker unless you make your own money to make films which you want to make .figure out a way to make money than make films. Go the Francis Ford Coppola way.
