For me personally, the hardest part of filmmaking isn't the actual production process. That's where the fun happens. The hardest part to me is actually coming up with a story worth telling. Today, it seems like the consensus is that there is no original story. Yet we see tons of movies coming from all over the place, and the boy who cried that film is dead is still screaming. Still, you can source the content of most movies back to some source, especially in the modern film industry (say, 2000 to present). It's just interesting to me. As someone who has been trying to write something worth producing for some time now, it seems like I should just give up my attempt at originality and succumb to the reality that nothing is original. How do other people face their ideas head-on?
