What is the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
For me it was “Disaster Movie”. I’ve never walked out of a movie before I saw that.
The movie was trying to fit in as many pop culture references as they could instead of making a parody of the genre of “disaster” movies.
It is very important to know what you like and don’t like about a movie and more importantly be able to articulate what it is.
The reason I’m bringing this up because as a filmmaker you need to be able to dissect films that you see in theaters for it’s strengths and weaknesses. If you see a movie that you like, take note of the things that you’d want to do similar in your film. If you see a film that you don’t like, then notice the elements that you would want to avoid in making your film.
This may seem obvious but many people will bad talk a film and just say things like “You know it was just bad.” But if your goal is to make films in the future you need to know what things could have been changed to make the movie better or even to try and understand what it is the writer or director was trying to convey thought the movie.
In order to make a good video, you need to know what is a bad video. Next time you go out to see a film take note of why you liked it or why you didn’t.
