Developing a filmmaking "habit" / 10,000 hour rule
Hey guys! I'm new to the boards, super excited to dive in and meet all you awesome people.
I'm in the middle of reading Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers" and it has me thinking about how to cultivate a filmmaking habit. I'm big into systems/habits/personal development in general, but I'm a bit stumped as to how to incorporate this when it comes to filmmaking.
Basically I'd like to know if you have suggestions for a good habit to start. Could it be writing one scene every day? Writing one synopsis a day, and filling out a beat sheet? Simply working on a screenplay for a specified time?
The reason I ask is because I'm interested in both writing and directing, so I'm wondering if there's an area I should focus on more in terms of a daily habit.
I'd love to know your thoughts!
