If you're not watching Sense8, why aren't you?

• Several explicitly lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans characters


• The trans woman is actually played by a trans actress

• POC main characters from all over the world

• Everything is shot on location, with scenes in Kenya, Korea, India and Germany for example

• Great relationships between people from backgrounds as different as they get

• Sweet and steamy romances

• Some of the most badass fight scenes I’ve ever seen

• Acknowledgment of social issues such as sexism, homophobia, and political corruption

• And just an overall great and unique plot about psychics standing against those in power who fear anything different as threatening

have you ever seen more theatrical shot?

their positions.. decorations.. the whole scene of Mary’s death is a stage performance. John is playing the role of grieving husband. Mary’s last words..
(remember Rachel Talalay’s words: «For each scene I ask “What do I want the audience to understand/feel/see” and then I set about creating a series of shots, blocking, locations, design, acting, etc, that attempts to evoke those responses»).

(have i mentioned already how much i adore TST?)


“Paris holds the key to her past…
Yes princess I’ve you at last. 
No more pretend, 
You’ll be gone, that’s the end…”

Hei. Just checked out your page and i'm actually aspiring to become a film director. So i'd like to know how to get there and some important things to know along the way to become one (or involved in the film industry) thank you pal.

inlovewithmydreams said:hi I am 15 I have a dream to be a great director do you have any tips?

Hello @franciscaheroncross and @inlovewithmydreams!

I have combined your questions because the are similar and my answer can apply to both.

There is no one way to become a director. Everyone in the industry has taken a different path to get to where they are now so there is no real blueprint to go from aspiring filmmaker to established filmmaker, or in your cases, director. While the lack of a plan may be frustrating to some (it certainly was and is for me!) it is also encouraging because there are endless ways to break into the industry.

In my experience and from the experiences of professionals I know, the best way is to make connections with people in the industry and to go above and beyond in any internship or job you have. Even if your job is only slightly related to directing, proving you are hardworking and  willing to go the extra mile makes you stand out and you can form connections that will lead you to a better job or opportunity closer to your field.

Freelance editing or filming is another good way to get experience if you don’t have an internship or job related to film. You can edit projects, make music videos, design a flyer, take pictures for events, or other such things for friends, family, and acquaintances. I’ve designed flyers for both parents (free), recorded and edited stage plays for my school (sold the dvds for cheap), taken bts pictures and event pictures (also free), etc. Because of that experience, I got paid for other editing gigs. So be willing to take initiative and make your own projects.

Listen to your cast and crew when they have problems or questions. Pay attention to your actors when they are trying to figure out blocking, motivation, or if they just want to know if you liked a take. Even if they seem fine, check in with them (especially if they are doing a grueling/emotional scene!) They are not puppets, they are people. Also, your crew has specific jobs and many times know more than the director about a specific field. That’s why they are there so be considerate of their comments and concerns. No one will want to work with you again if they feel ignored.

When you do get the chance to direct, preproduction is extremely important to a smooth production. Here is some prepro stuff that is crucial:

-Make a shot list! Don’t go into a shoot blindly without a plan as to how your going to shoot the scene. I have just added a shot list template to the resource drive with a quick example of how to fill it out. This website also has a free template for google drive spreadsheets.

-Scout locations and plan shots out. Doing this will prepare you for possible problems such as poor background noise, automatic lights, not enough room for lights and other equipment, etc. Know how you’re going to block scenes within the space.

-Make a budget plan. How much will food cost? (Side note: food is very important, especially if people are working for free.) Include a buffer in your budget to account for mishaps or extra runs. I usually do around $50 for smaller shoots but it depends on the individual project and your personal budget.

-Communication is key. (Side note: email skills are super important!) If you don’t communicate with your cast and crew, it leads to mistakes, wasted time and money, and frustration. I rarely work with people a second time if they don’t communicate.

-Know the script inside and out. Actors and crew will have questions so you have to know the script as well or better than the writer.

Overall, directors can make or break a production so pay attention to your cast and crew, stay organized, and don’t be afraid to admit you’re wrong or that you don’t understand something. You are in charge but realize you aren’t all-knowing.

This became a long answer so I hope it was helpful and not just a ramble!



Andi Mack Fun Facts Part 1

1. Every time the Good Hair Crew is together in the Spoon, Andi has a pink straw, Buffy has an orange straw, and Cyrus had a green straw.
