The Seven Deadly Sins of Filmmaking. #10

Filmmaking Deadly Sin Number 10 – Sacrifice Look for Performance!

It’s time again for William Akers (Your Screenplay Sucks!) and Kelley Baker (The Angry Filmmaker) to get together and discuss Deadly Sin # 10 – Sacrifice Look for Performance!

Stop spending all of your time fretting over the equipment and the lighting and worry about the DAMN Performances!  Work with your Actors, they don’t bite.  If more filmmakers were as worried about their actor’s performances we might have worse looking films but they’d be better.  Audiences will forgive a lot of technical problems but if the acting isn’t good then we’re all heading to the exits.  Spend time working with your actors so that they can create believable characters and make them come alive.  We’ll remember their performances longer than how your film looked.
