Happy Monday to everyone.
On Monday morning, I like to look at the box office results of the top 10 movies and compare the artistic results to their budgets. I know that sounds weird, but I am always trying to figure out how I can shoot what I need and have it be financially feasible. I realize everyone wants to have that artistic masterpiece, but some movies or scripts are never going to be that; however, if a movie is made well, it can still turn a profit. I find myself constantly trying to learn from others mistakes in hopes that I will not make the same mistake.
I have a couple questions of my own:
What makes you decide if you are going to take on a project?
Do you try to find the pitfalls first or learn as you go?
These do not have to be film projects, it can be any project you take on.
Have a great Monday!
