I learned how to make a movie from the lessons I absorbed on set, what I read at Samuel French Bookstore (RIP), and… reading articles on No Film School.
Editors Note: Joseph Cross came to us and explained that he had learned a lot from No Film Schoo and he wanted to give back to the community by sharing what specific posts helped him in what stages on his feature SUMMER NIGHT. We were flattered and more than happy to run his post which serves as something of a ‘First Feature Primer’. We also have a 10 episode podcast series first feature that takes you through our own founder and CEO Ryan Koo’s journey as he developed his project Amateur. The first episode is How Do You Know Which Idea to Pursue? The First Feature: AMATEUR [Episode 1]

I started with 15 Common Mistakes Amateur Filmmakers Make (& How to Fix Them).
Then I moved onto 8 Things Every New Filmmaker Should Learn Before Making Their First Film.
