Is filmmaking a hobby? – Independent Film Grants

Is that a job? Is that an activity that everyone is doing? It’s not at all.

In fact, it may be one of the most enjoyable hobbies anyone can have in life, let alone in film. It’s not easy, like, you don’t have anyone to share your joy. It doesn’t take you long hours. If you have a good time doing it, you have a good time doing it. You may find success at it. You may find failure. But you never need to ask for advice. You never have to worry about any of those things unless you’ve been doing it for a long time as a filmgoer.

There are some people that love filmmaking. Those are you. Those are the people who come to our film festivals, film festivals and film events and we see them each week and ask them to be part of the crew and they’re like ‘oh okay I guess so it’s time for me’.

Then there are a lot of other photographers that love filmmaking and like film. So you don’t have to talk to them. You just have to go along and go into every one of the locations. You’ll see people you’ve worked with before or you’ll find yourself being the same person you were before.

I’m not in this to impress anybody, there’s a lot of things that are going to happen to you that you simply don’t expect, like when you get back from a festival you have no idea how close you are to that place that it was. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen any kind of travel documentary which has been filmed from places like Tibet or South Africa. You can almost take a photo and be like yeah yeah I’ve been there, but it’s not there and you really don’t know how close you are or what’s the best way of getting there?

So that’s part of the fun of shooting, I guess. But sometimes, especially out in the wild, you go out there and it’s like, well you know it’s a day like tonight there’s a storm and they’re like hey don’t worry about that, we’ll all get together at midnight so you have that extra night.

And if you’re lucky, that’s probably the end of it, but if not it starts the next morning. Or when you’re on a project you can’t just do the day. You have to do all these little side projects that are fun. But they’re different for every shot.
