Making a film is a collaborative process. Whichever way you look at it, you won’t be able to realize your singular vision all on your, so the best way to get the results you want is really to do your homework, prepare as much as possible, surround yourself with talent – and finally let it go. Take chances and trust your crew.
When Rachel Noll made Don’t Pass Me By almost every part of the process was a learning experience. Here are some of her thoughts on how to make the most of your inevitable loss of complete control.
Rachel is an independent filmmaker, screenwriter and actress living in Los Angeles. Her feature film, Don’t Pass Me By, is available worldwide, and her short film, Paramnesia, just won BEST SHORT at the LA Thriller Fest and is available as part of the acclaimed collection Fun Size Horror on all the major streaming platforms. She’s currently in development on several independent features and scripts, so keep a watchful eye.
