The Problem Solving of Filmmaking

The Problem Solving of Filmmaking

Time for a little perspective, fellow YouTubers.

We love this commentary video by David F. Sandberg, director of ‘Shazam!’, about the amount of problem solving that goes into filmmaking. It’s easy to Monday-morning quarterback a film, tearing to shreds any plot holes, logical fallacies, or continuity errors that may exist throughout the final product. But producers, directors, actors, and everyone else on set have real-world problems to solve.

And if you’re familiar with Murphy’s Law, you know that anything and everything CAN go wrong, from the weather not cooperating, to injuries, to child actor laws dictating the shooting schedule. So to gain just a little bit of a deeper understanding—and appreciation—of just how difficult it is to create a feature film, check out the video below.

A short video expanding on something I talk about on the Shazam commentary track (Shazam is now available on digital and if you buy the iTunes version you get a commentary track along with the other extras).
