Monday Prescriptions – Simplicity

Film Folk!

“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.

Film Doctor - Simple Circle

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.
