Collaborate with strangers
I recently heard a good tip about pitching your film ideas: when pitching, honestly hope that people will come up with ways of improving your idea.
Sometimes I only wanted to hear people say ‘That’s a great idea, you’re really clever.’ That only tells you that your pitch might be ready for the big times. If you tell your story and ask if the other person has any thoughts on how yo make your idea better, you are collaborating – the thing that makes this medium different from books and plays…
Good point…but even in books and plays people collab…it’s less seen though…but writers do have friends read over their stuff and ask for opinions, and so do playwrights too.
I guess it’s more visible in film-making though, but I guess it’s something that takes place in most art fields.
