The Best Article On Filmmaking That I've Ever Read

Yup, that's a bold statement...  but I'm going to share it with you; the best article on filmmaking that I've ever read.  Maybe it's because it really resonated with me, maybe it's because I read it at the right time, but... wow.  Ted Hope isn't talking about horror when he wrote this, but he might as well have.

If you didn't know, the Dead Harvey team is currently trying to get a few projects off the ground.  One's a low-budget horror and the others are more mid-range.  Currently, it looks like we'll get this low-budget one off the ground first, but you never know.  Regardless, we have a bunch of finished, polished scripts, but we just finished the last one and we're thinking about our next.  What to write?

You've had the conversation, right?  Do we do something niche, do we do something more commercial?  This stuff sells, this isn't hot right now.  Everyone wants found footage films, alien films are out, ghosts are in.  Blah, blah, blah...   well, read this article and I think it'll help you when you're at that stage.  It certainly helped me AND it put a few things in perspective.

Without further ado, here's the link to "Everything I Know About Producing, Pt 1".  I hope you like it as much as I did!
