The Power of Humor in Festival Submissions
In this episode, we discuss the power of humor not only in the film itself but in the film festival submission process as well. Filmmaker really under estimate the power of humor. You have to remember that people enjoy laughing, in the movie theater or during the submission process.
Adding a bit of chuckle or even full-blown laughs might help your chances during the submission process. The creativity does not stop at the end of the edit. Ask yourself which marketing campaign or Super Bowl commercial stuck with you the most?
Chris and I go over our experiences using humor and share a few tips.
