Nowadays, some filmmakers and movie companies just can't seem to find the right formula for making a good movie because basically all that they focus on is the money it will make in the cinema. And some of them just put in no sense and style and originality. I wanted to make this thread to try and get people to understand what should truly come from a good movie experience. So, post your thoughts on how filmmakers can make great films and avoid making the ones that end up failing at the end of the day. Here are my thoughts and opinions on how filmmakers can great films: The main thing filmmakers need to focus on when making great films are the characters that they helm to the screen. The audience has to feel some sort of connection with them, so when they make there choices and decisions you can have a feeling over what they do instead of them making a decision and while they do so you just say to yourself: 'Oh well.' That's really the basic thought that I have of any film so, what's yours?
