Writer Tip #7: How To Make Movies For A Living

If you want to write movies for a living, work with people who make movies for a living.  They're the ones who can keep you busy and put food on your table.  Don't get excited when you get interest from someone who makes a film once every five years.  Unless it's Stanley Kubrick, and he's dead.    If your producer is still working a side job, you shouldn't anticipate him freeing you from yours.

The film business is pretty much like every other business.  The more you work, the greater your income.  Seek connections with people who regularly make movies.  Not just a guy who made a grade-Z zombie film seven years ago.

That's pretty much it.

Be sure to check out my book The Promise, or the Pros and Cons of Talking with God.  It is available in paperback and on Kindle courtesy of TouchPoint Press.
