Writer Director John Chu talks filmmaking

As a filmmaker, getting your movies produced sometimes seems impossible. And if you haven’t yet made your first feature, it is often very easy to get caught up in all the reasons why it can’t be done.

My screenwriter friend Jurgen Wolff forwarded this great filmmaking video with John M Chu. In it, he shares some of the innovative approaches he took to filmmaking, including starting small on YouTube, making the process interactive, finding ways to leverage input, and how modern moviemaking has changed the game.

While I don’t yet know John personally, I think his approach to filmmaking is smart and worth listening to.
