When you wish to break into the film industry, where do you start? For many of those with a love of movies but no contacts or experience, it seems a very daunting task. However every successful film maker working today had to start somewhere. It is true that there are some who have been fortunate to come from movie making stock, or have been financially strong enough to attend film school, where contacts and experience can be nurtured. But with today's technology, almost anyone can produce something for viewing. Those that wish to work in the industry may have to work infinitely harder than the aforementioned lucky ones, but there are some truly unique voices out there and some may very well break through and form a successful career.

So where to start? For me, it is to address the issue of British film in general, in accordance with my tastes. Personally, have always favoured genre movies over artistic works. Now I am not saying that I don't like art films - some of the works of Greenaway and Jarman are very good - but I have always enjoyed a great thriller, or a hilarious comedy. And if I wish to make movies, I am naturally drawn to these types of film. My early short films clearly fall under this bracket and the ideas that I am currently developing are following in their footsteps. But one thing troubles me when considering British genre films... Why are there so few shown on the big screen?

There are some fine examples of British film on the big screen that fall into the genre market - Edgar Wright's The World's End is one of the most successful examples in recent months. But an established film maker like Wright would no longer have trouble funding a high profile movie. How does a new independent film maker get their film into the movie theaters? This is when the artistic hat must be put aside and the business hat comes into play. It cannot be forgotten that this is show-business - when you are recognized by your peers as a success, then the more personal, artistic projects could come forward.  Until then, you must surely work towards a film you can sell.

Perhaps a re-think on tactics is in order... As you will see from my next entry...

I cannot remember if I already watched a British genre movie, but I've read a lot of movie reviews with this kind of genre and they say that it's a must for everyone to watch this kind of film. I will make a research about this genre and a list of movie to watch so that if ever I will be having a free time. I feel excited and nervous at the same time! I will make my own review once I am done watching a certain film. Thank you for the inspiration!

It is the best quality of English movies that their trailer is very interesting and full of suspense. They expose the trailer but don’t tell all the story of movie. They give just a little idea about it.

Film industry is too hard. Instead I would suggest to start off initially at TV series play and gain popularity. For inspiration take the career life of Peter Capaldi of Doctor Who.
