Hollywood are making my story ideas one after the other..
I used to think 'Dang, they did my idea, I should have done it first'
Now I think 'Cool, they're no smarter than me! And sometimes they write less twists and explore none of the philosophical issues'
Not that. You're new, u dunno me : )
Welcome to TEP
Directing is just really hard as it is. I'm gonna have a movie made mebbe.. not in Hollywood, but a big time prod house in a diff industry.
Storyboarding alone is close to a full time job, directing is co-ordinating 20 different tasks just as hard as storyboarding. It's a really difficult task. That's why there are way fewer directors than actors or even writers
They probably won't be around by the time you grow up.
However, they're even tougher than the stuff I work on. VFX is a whole different layer of difficulty.
I have trouble just storyboarding things like school rooms, college dorms, fights and court scenes
Who knows, we'll have to see. H scripts are notorious for being re-written at every step
Those are sanitized so people can follow what's going on
It's way, way harder than that.
Real VFX work has terrible margins, pieces of work are given to different studios, which close in the middle of projects.. It's a mess.
Which is why I am not gonna ever agree to being a director. Even on my own movie
It's insane. and that's coming from a guy who has written 3d engines and actually understands how 3d graphics work from the ground up
There is a lot of business stuff, creative indecision, politics and a lack of references in the VFX industry
remember sonic? They threw out probably tens thousands of man hours out the window because it didnt look good..
