I spent a great deal of time in my early adult life trying to get down on paper the perfect movie process. In fact, I was far more interested in achieving an effective methodology than making films.
Although I did produce some shorts and even no budget features, I still always came back to looking at systems of creating movies.
Finally, after years of playing around with different possible techniques, I put all my research to the test. I started a master class program online and over a period of less than two years set out to prove that one person could make a picture alone without the need for a crew, and the other participants being actors only.
Although I only too the the production to the looping phase, I showed the process worked. An now movie process has made the transition to writing. Not screenplays, I’ve written too many of them, but a…novel.
Being in touch with your future customers of downloading or streaming your movie requires finding your prospects the exact moment they are ready to purchase. This is your goal.

We get asked sometimes how we developed our methodology for filmmaking. And the answer is quite simple. We embarked on making a film and tracked what we were doing naturally. The method evolved from a single lightbulb of an idea to an actual step by step procedure that others could do. This of course was the birth of the infamous movie process technique.
Actual Action in Front of the Lens
These days we are not making movies as often. We have been utilizing the new apps that allow you to use stock footage and images to implement your creations. Sometime described of being like a PowerPoint slideshow with moving images, it is of course not as “creative” as doing a motion picture by filming actual action in front of the lens.
What is the Future?
Is this the future of filmmaking? Not at all. Likely there will always be a market for films. Though, this movie process could start to look very different once we reach the point of being able to animate a live action picture.
New York City was it’s usual vibrant self just before the Coronavirus. Crews like the one pictured were doing important projects and making a difference with their art. Wearing a mask at that time was optional, some still did though.
Movie Process Ended
Then COVID-19 became stronger and like many industries, filmmaking was impacted negatively. The movie process ceased to move forward.
The Question Looms
