Inspirational Advice for Filmmakers on YouTube

If you are looking for inspiration for your film or your dream of becoming a filmmaker, here is a great list to get started with. These are all clips I have found at one time or another that really puts the ‘aspiring’ filmmaker title in question. If you aspire to be a filmmaker, you are already one. You never need someone to say that you are a filmmaker. Just be one. Go write a short film or shoot a music video. We are living in a great time to make movies. To steal from a filmmaker I admire, Scott McMahon from FilmTrooper.com “Film production is no longer a barrier.” The basic equipment to make a great looking and sounding film is very inexpensive now. Just go and do it! If you need a little more push, here are my Inspirational Advice for Filmmakers on YouTube. Some clips have a little bit of salty language.
