Los Angeles, CA, October 20, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- OTK Media Group, Inc. and Emmy® Award winner Orlando Delbert have successfully produced and released the ‘Hollywood, Unapologetic!’ – “Filmmaking Essentials: Things to do Before Starting Your Production” episode as part of the ‘New Hollywood Generation’ movement.
“Do you want to be a filmmaker,” asked Delbert? “Do you want to be a director? Do you want to be a producer? For many of you, the answer to any and all of these questions is yes! If you watched other episodes in the series, in particular the 5 stages of production, you know the first stage is the development stage. But there is a huge stage which should be in place well before the development stage that so many young content creators totally overlook, which all too often leads to double work, frustration, and ultimately failed projects and just giving up.”
“That first stage is identifying and deciding that you are a business,” said Delbert. “I can’t tell you how many aspiring filmmakers I’ve spoken to about this that were just resistant. All of them had a very difficult first few years because they didn’t have the right foundation in place. And a large majority of them gave up within the first two years. The very first thing you need to ask yourself is, “What am I going to do?”

“For a large majority of us in the entertainment industry, we are in one way or another in the service industry,” said Delbert. “Unless we can afford to create our own projects on our own dime, we will spend most of our career working for someone else in some capacity. This simple fact so many young content creators I have met over the years seem to not want to hear. But it’s a reality that needs to be looked at without bias at the very beginning of our professional careers in entertainment.”

“To be a successful filmmaker, you have to be organized,” said Delbert. “You’ll hear me speak about with some frequency the importance of creating a business plan. This is your first tool to building a structured and organized business. Think of it as a written roadmap that evaluates all of your goals, and the economic viability of those goals. It will define and focus your objective. And once it’s together, it is a huge step towards getting you financing. It is also a huge part of the research you’ll need to do to see what your competitive landscape is going to be. You want to be different and stand out from those whom you are competing against for clients, as well as having a unique voice when you set your dream project in motion later on.”

The ‘Hollywood, Unapologetic!’ web-series and the “Pollyanna’s Tear Soaked Battlefields of Hollywood: A Survival Guide Against the Cynicism and the Hypocritical” series of books were designed to be at the core of the ‘New Hollywood Generation’ as a progressive movement to encourage discussions that will initiate constructive lines of thought in the hopes to get young people to become thought leaders and to create a positive voice for themselves, their communities, and one another.
