Welcome


 

Welcome to The Filmmaker's Process

 

You're in the right place if:


You care about making films that matter

You're tired of blogs that focus only on gear

You want to be proud of the films you make

You're a "jack of all trades" filmmaker

You genuinely love the process of filmmaking 


If that describes you, you should probably bookmark this site immediately.

Every week, we'll publish easy-to-follow articles that break down the filmmaking process into its simplest, most approachable elements. Our goal is to make the daunting task of going from idea to finished film a little more manageable.

This material won't cover the hottest new cameras, the latest gimbal stabilizers, or anything that might compel you to run out and purchase new gear. Instead, you'll get focused, topical, tactical content that will help you make better films, regardless of your budget or experience level.

Most importantly, this material will help you make films that matter to you, films that you will be proud to put your name on, and films that will live in the hearts and minds of your audience for years to come.

If that sounds good to you, we'd love for you to join us on this journey.

About Robert Hardy


The Filmmaker's Process is the brainchild of Robert Hardy

 

Robert Hardy is a filmmaker and writer who lives in Denver, Colorado. 

Robert founded The Filmmaker's Process because, after several years of writing for the leading site for up-and-coming filmmakers, he realized there needed to be something better. An educational resource that focused strictly on the art and process of making a film, rather than on the latest cameras, lenses, and support gear. 

Through this site, he believes that we can defeat Gear Acquisition Syndrome once and for all.


 

 

 

 

Robert looks kind of like this, minus the fake mustache.

 

 

He is not available to help you solve crimes.

 

 

 

 


Robert is trained as a cinematographer, and has written hundreds of cinematography articles for No Film School. However, he largely eschews trying to make a living in the film industry, and instead believes that filmmaking is something that should be done with friends, and that those films should be a reflection of the unique people who make them.

For that reason, Robert is becoming a jack of all trades filmmaker, and is learning how to create meaningful films not only as a cinematographer, but as a screenwriter, as a producer, as a director, and as an editor. He'll share everything that he learns along the way.

Just in case you're curious, here's Robert's cinematography reel.


Meet The Filmmaker's Process Team Members

Robert isn't building this site alone. With marketing and editorial help from Tyler Jones, and content submissions from filmmakers around the world, The Filmmaker's Process is far more than a one-man blog. It's a community of like-minded individuals working together to build something truly valuable for filmmakers.

Tyler Jones - Marketing Director, Editor

Tyler Jones is a reporter for an energy news group who needed a creative outlet after too much time working in the corporate world. He and Robert met and bonded over a mutual love (lust, really) of breakfast burritos and good coffee.


           

"If you mess with the bull, you get the horns."

"If you mess with the bull, you get the horns."

Tyler likes rock music and beer. He looks kinda like this.

                  

Film accolades include, and are limited to:

  • Best extra to appear in a student film; self-nominated, self-awarded

  • Most likely to bother Robert while he edits footage; nominated by Robert Hardy, awarded by Robert Hardy

          


Though relatively unacquainted with the world of filmmaking, Tyler has dabbled in jazz, drawing, and metal-working. He believes that any craft is a noble pursuit, and decided to join Robert in developing The Filmmaker’s Process as a way to encourage other people to explore the creative process in a way that is personally fulfilling.

Also, someone has to keep Rob on task over the many hours it takes to craft TFP content. Otherwise, he would just be off listening to bluegrass somewhere instead of working.
