The Most Difficult Part Of Independent Filmmaking

It's not creating the concept and writing it (that's not a problem for me--if anything there are too many ideas).

It's not the funding (Addovolt projects are indie to the nth degree. I can't be wreckless with the money--there's not a ton of it--but it's there and you have to be careful with it or you'll have runaway budgets/production costs--this happens on all levels of filmmaking from Hollywood blockbusters to New York Film Festival entries).

The most difficult part of independent filmmaking?


Hands down.

That's what seperates intended projects from actualized films.

It takes precision, foresight, ruthlessness, sacrifice, and a bunch of headaches.
