Many filmmakers were told early on in their careers to specialize in only one field and to master a single skill. But as the landscape of content creation continues to evolve, creative generalists – especially those who emphasize post production – are proving that this theory may no longer hold the same weight.
In this episode, I make a case for embracing a generalist approach to filmmaking, outlining how it allows DIY filmmakers to make better movies for less money, and in less time than ever before. Topics covered include: Breaking the “jack of all trades” stigma, the financial benefits of mastering post production, educating yourself on fundamental editorial/finishing skills, when you should (or shouldn’t) hire outside help, and loads more.
