About Filmmaking Quotes

Welcome to filmmakingquotes.com – a website that shares the secrets of the masters of cinema and helps readers take their filmmaking to the next level.

My name is Josh and I’m the guy behind Filmmaking Quotes.

Like other aspiring filmmakers, I would waste hours upon hours, searching through many websites and forums, as well as reading books and magazines to try and learn as much as possible about my favorite film directors.

It then occurred to me one day, that wouldn’t it be great if all this information was in one place.

Thus, Filmmaking Quotes was born. 

The concept of the website is simple: compiling the biggest online collection of filmmaking quotes available anywhere.

From tips on finding your next project, to directing actors, staging meaningful cinematography and editing your movie to enhance meaning, you are sure to find plenty of helpful filmmaking advice in these words of wisdom from the masters of cinema.

Well, to me, the great teachers are the great directors. If you’re willing to watch and really study, you can find out so much. And so my masters are everyone’s masters, the great directors, from Ozu to Welles to Truffaut to Coppola to Ang Lee, from Steven Soderbergh to David Fincher; these are the people who even now are teaching me.

Level Up Your Filmmaking Skills

This site is dedicated to helping filmmakers learn from the best. It is also a way of me keeping a record of what I’m learning. If it can help someone else out there, then it would have been worthwhile.

The bottom line is my readers are very important to me. I want them to know I have their best interest at heart. I’ve tried to build a website that I would want to visit and written articles about subjects that I would want to read myself.

As this is a regularly updated site the best way to use it will be to follow it over time. 

Support Filmmaking Quotes

FilmmakingQuotes.com is free to read. If you find any of our articles helpful, then I would be grateful if you could share with others through your own blog or social media (forums, Twitter, Facebook, etc.)

The more links we have to the website, the more time I can spend writing new content and continue to profile master filmmakers.

Each master profile quote article takes on average 3 days (sometimes longer) to research and write, sharing takes less than a minute and doesn’t cost anything. Thank you for your support.
