This year I’m going to make a movie. People will wonder: “Why are you going to make a movie? You’re a software developer. You don’t know anything about filmmaking.” They would be right. I don’t care. And I will learn something in the process.
I think we live in an amazing time for creating beautiful stuff. Cameras aren’t that expensive. Maybe someone has a camera lying around somewhere. Distributing the video on the internet isn’t very hard.
My current plan looks like this:
- Find a few people who are interested in creating a movie
- Write a script, storyboards, screenplay
- Find some more people
- Shoot the video
And sure, this is not the whole story. Each of these steps consists of more steps and more stuff that I don’t know.
