Blog: Exploring the Art of Storytelling with Quentin Tarantino: Filmmaking Tips
Some of the most valuable lessons from Tarantino include the importance of being true to your characters and having a clear vision, having a personal connection to your story, and the importance of finding your own writing process and making films that you would personally want to see.
As a filmmaker, it's important to be the conductor of the audience's emotions and to write your screenplay with the goal of keeping the reader entertained and engaged. Stay true to your characters and have a clear vision as a writer or director. Make your writing personal and have fun with it. Focus on character development and read your script out loud. Let your characters lead the way and keep the story constantly unfolding. Use suspense effectively and give your characters moral choices with consequences. Develop your own writing process and leave room for interpretation. Make your script stand out and don't be afraid to create your own movies. Aim to create high-quality films and consider sharing your knowledge and experience with others.
