A film is, without doubt, a work of art. But unlike a novelist, or a painter, who can work alone, a film is a massive undertaking requiring a sizeable team and high-tech equipment. It could be one person’s vision, but it requires the participation of many artists. You could be that one person with a vision. In fact, you could be the Jimi Hendrix of filmmaking, the cinematic version of Beethoven. You could be the most gifted writer/director/producer in history were it not for the biggest obstacle to today’s filmmaker: money.
