Members Only Digital Film Screenings would be a huge boost to the careers of young filmmakers. First, these will be open to a select few so you need to do a few things in order to get in the screening. As a result, you will be with the company of fine people who have been in the industry for a pretty long time. No doubt, you can feel confident about asking them questions about the films that are being shown. From the lighting and editing up to the acting and location, young filmmakers will certainly have a ton of questions in mind. After each screening, the floor will be open for young filmmakers to ask a ton of questions. This is when you can take your time in asking all the questions you want and you will want all the answers you need for your future so better take down a lot of notes as there may be some important things that you will end up forgetting. You can’t blame yourself if that happens because of all the things that you will learn throughout the film screening. Some things will just come out of nowhere and they will come and go if you don’t take them down. Besides, it won’t take long to write those new things that you learned.
The screenings are a great opportunity to meet fellow professionals in your industry. You can already meet people who will take part in your next project. It is such an honor to meet new people working in the same industry as you. You will need a lot of people to make a movie like makeup artists, costume designers, and segment producers. Some people think that you will just need a producer, director, and a bunch of big-time actors to make a movie but it takes a lot more than that. The screenings will show films that were either shown before or rarely shown but they have a lot of meaning to them. These things are a great lesson when you come to think of it. It will put you on the right path towards making a nice film even if you don’t know what the story is yet. You just want to make one and you can have a meeting with all the new people you met at the test screening and they are going to give you some ideas of their own. Of course, it would be up to you if you would use them or not. It is important to get people to fund your project though as that would be beneficial to put up a film that would stay in the minds of people who end up watching it. It is even possible for the digital film screening to happen online via groom video call. If that is the case, then you won’t be shy anymore about asking a ton of questions since you are not really there personally and the filmmakers would be open to sharing.
