It Really Doesn’t Matter What Your Movie Looks Like…

by planetMitch1 Comment

This is from last year… but I've just discovered it over on I Love Filmmaking 

The quote that got me at the beginning is something I've been saying for a while… whenever someone asks me about why Canon hasn't done 4k in a lower price DSLR, or why sensors don't have more dynamic range, or when xxxx is going to do yyyy…

“It doesn't really matter what your movie looks like…” Mark Duplass said. He said it just after he talked about how he and his brother made a 7 minute movie in one day for something like $3.00 and it was shown at Sundance and other festivals. This after they'd spent $65,000 making a movie that they weren't happy with.

We all get very very excited about specs and love love love to talk about gear… I get it, we all do.

But it just doesn't matter in the long run.

It is the content that counts. THAT is why people watch!
