Always Create Content

This is something that is for the other Business filmmakers in the crowd.

Sometimes, you may be recording content that is…less than interesting. Maybe a deposition isn’t something that grabs attention. Or you may create a training video that has to be kept private, and you won’t be putting it on your reel. No matter what: ALWAYS CREATE CONTENT.

As filmmakers, it is our job to create art and make interesting images. If you are at an event, take an artistic photo of the craft services table. Use your artistic eye, and look around at your environment and find something that grabs you. Look at the architecture. Play with depth of field. Take a close-up. Find the image in reality that is visually striking. For example, the image of the flower I used is something I captured during an event I was filming.

In Neil Gaiman’s words, Make Good Art”.
