Some of our frequently asked questions are about how to get into filmmaking. Where do you start? How do you find your way?
These are tricky questions because everyone’s path is different.
You may try your hand at corporate videos and realize you absolutely love working with clients. You may start shooting fiction films and find your calling as a cinematographer.
You never know until you start trying, so the best way to learn is to simply do it.
This is why we love sharing stories about what others in the film community are doing. We believe that this builds a stronger, more united film community. Celebrating successes, confronting challenges, and cheering one another on is the best way to build a thriving film community in the Triangle and beyond.
You are not in competition with one another as filmmakers. You are in competition with yourselves to hone your craft and become the best storytellers you can be, so that you can create beautiful cinematic experiences.
To inspire you to take action on your own filmmaking dreams we talked with Evan Kidd, an emerging filmmaker in North Carolina who just wrapped production on his first feature-length film. The film is titled Son of Clowns and was shot in North Carolina in 10 days.
You can share a word of congrats with Evan, cheer him on, or ask questions in the comments.
