  3. misc Do most new filmmakers start out too proud?

    So, I came into this hobby/passion full of false pride. I didn't realize I was being a butt-head at the time... Arguing with everyone who had a different opinion, or didn't like my work, or letting negative feedback get me angry as opposed to letting it be constructive. Ignoring sound advice...

    So, I've been making videos for a while. But only really focusing on filmmaking as a professional hobby for the last few years.

    I am looking for other short filmmakers to interview for my youtube channel. The idea is to make short, simple, high quality Q&A vids for decent quality films or for films that have cool behind the scenes stories. Basically how it works is the following: I watch your film, and prepare a list...
