“Keep it Simple, Stupid” is a world favourite in conveying the message of simplicity, but The Film Doctor Team likes to think we’re a little more refined so we have chosen to go with Leonardo da Vinci’s: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
It doesn’t matter which quotation you choose, the message is clear: simpler is stronger.
Can you pitch your script/film/direction in one line? Can you indicate its budget? One simple word will colour in a whole picture of what kind of production you are planning to write/shoot.
This does not mean that you may not create complex and/or layered films or scripts or business plans. It simply means that focusing on one layer at a time will probably be your best bet because when broken down, the complex is made up of lots of smaller simpler parts.
Get to the core of the whole and the core of each part. Keep things isolated. Keep things simple. One step at a time. One step at a time.
