Most of my life I've just been a passive viewer. But as I find out what it takes to make a movie or TV show, I am increasingly fascinated and in awe. This series is an inside look at the details, the personalities, and the challenges. Two very different first-time directors have the same initial script and same budget - and get to make their movie! They both bring strengths to the work - and those very strengths sometimes work against them. Shane Dawson is used to creating YouTube videos, as the creator, star, and everything. He has a huge following among a very specific audience. His challenge is to work effectively with all the people involved - production crew, executive producers, the voices of experience - to create something that will appeal to a larger audience. Anna has a broader base of experience, not only as screen writer but also as a part of a group creating videos and a movie. She knows the world of indie film making and knows how to work with others creatively. Her challenge is to take charge for her own vision, being the primary decision-maker for a change. Both directors have excellent coaching from more experienced producers. The commentary from Corey Moosa of Before the Door is especially insightful. For anyone thinking they would like to make a movie, this series will be a riveting lesson in the creative chaos. For observers like me, the series adds to the appreciation of the movies & TV shows.
