Golden Impact with Joachim-Saint(10): What is it you can do to help yourself for the future?
to show for yourself. If you are seeking representation either as a writer/director or solely as a screenwriter,
you should have a writing portfolio ready to share, which should showcase some of your best pieces of writing.
Remember, not everything you’re going to write is going to be your best. That’s okay! Writing often gives you
the freedom to have a lot of writing to choose from when it comes time to pick your best pieces.
III. Direct, direct, direct!
There’s definitely a bit of a catch-22 when it comes to seeking representation as a director. You may feel like
you need an agent in order to use your directing skills, but you need to have directed something to really land
The truth is, an agent or manager is going to want to see that you have real creative vision and talent, and for a
director, vision and talent are expressed on the screen. So, if you’re a director, find ways to make films, no matter
how small they are. Technology today – from the ability to shoot a film on an iPhone to affordable, indie
film-friendly cameras – makes it truly possible to produce a film shoot on a shoestring budget.
Hope we’ve learnt something from this episode. Join me next week for more enlightenment discussion on making it in the film industry.
