It’s great to work with a team on projects that you cannot do by yourself.
When you take a step back and look at what was accomplished… this is one of the pleasures of film. In film school many people asked me what I was interested in. I always said that I was interested in corporate video production. My classmates and teachers would say that that is a good way to make money. That’s an interesting bonus but having my roots firmly in film, it’s more about the art, the challenge and genuinely enjoying helping others. Naturally I like to help my clients.
Recently I had the opportunity to work on a film. There was something refreshing about it. It was the team work. Everyone had a role and smiled while they did it. There where no egos, the stress of getting the shot was enjoyable. Knowing that the director is the director, the DOP is the DOP (Director of Photography), props is props, and so on, made life so easy.
You can produce a great corporate video or even a great film but if you have a bad team… the money, the art and your desire to help will be challenged. Is it worth it if you want to quit what you usually love and are good at?
Start on the right foot. Find a good team. Enjoy your work. Do what you cannot do by yourself.
