The Winners In Film Production
May 6, 2021
A low-budget filmmaker’s most important asset is his or her artistic mind. The entire filmmaking process begins with an initial idea. Then it’s just a matter of keeping the thought alive before it blossoms into a brilliant idea. After that, it’s a matter of putting every ounce of energy and money you have into making that concept into a film.Learn more about us at Live Hub Events
The majority of popular films that are shown at film festivals are films that were produced for a fraction of the cost of a major Hollywood studio film. Hi-tech equipment, mostly focused on digital effects and technological possibilities, has made it possible for almost everyone to make a movie. Film cameras, sound recording equipment, and just about every other piece of filmmaking equipment can now be purchased for a very reasonable price.
With today’s filmmaking technology, even a low-budget film can have a production value and total revenue that makes it seem as though a well-known director was involved in the project. This professional presence, combined with a unique storey, can increase a film’s chances of being accepted into film festivals such as Cannes, Toronto, or even winning an Oscar!
The big Hollywood film studios will never have a monopoly on talent, no matter how hard they try. They spent well more than a million dollars not only on film making, but also on marketing research, in order to find out just what the world’s moviegoers want when they go to the cinema.
Despite all of their efforts, they have yet to discover a winning strategy. People’s intentions and preferences at the cinema are as unpredictable as an earthquake. As a result of this, the door is wide open for the world’s creative minds to join the game. All they have to do is come up with a great concept that can be turned into a fantastic film, enter it in festivals like Sundance, and let the judges decide. Although the big studios have attempted to take over the film festival sphere in recent years, the winners in that realm are still the small creative minds with small, but unique films.
