Making the most of resources?

As it’s the start of a new year, I thought it would be good to revisit Andrew Price’s excellent seminar. Although it’s 25+ mins long, if you pick up a few tips as to how you may save time editing your projects, it’ll be well worth it.

Need to add here that Andrew is a graphic artist – that said,  the seven points he makes have wider application for creatives everywhere – be they screenwriters, playwrights, novelists, filmmakers or whatever.

For me, point 2 ‘Volume: not perfection’  helped me a lot last year as I have since sought not to get bogged down in seeking perfection in one script at the expense of other writing I could be creating/producing. Again, the skinny of his 20+ min talk can be found at the bottom but I would really recommend watching the video as I think there is something in it for everyone.
