“I Don’t Mind Making Bad Films” Says Israeli Master Craftsman Dan Wolman In A Masterclass At IFFI 2018
Israeli master craftsman Dan Wolman conducted a masterclass for cine lovers and budding filmmakers. The veteran film director who was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at IFFI this year, has produced a wide range of films with daring subjects concerning problems of older people, migrants, and more.A rather chirpy Wolman addressed the audience in his signature candid fashion, sharing an in-depth knowledge of the different aspects of filmmaking. Using his short films which were shown on the big screen to the audience, Wolman touched upon ideas for making short films, documentary films and full length feature films. The ace filmmaker also shared ideas of getting film projects financed effectively.
While touching upon this topic, Wolman said, “I take about 8 to 12 months for screenwriting. I prepare two kinds of script – One, with my full imagination, and another which is something that I can do on my own with a smaller budget. That way I don’t have to be dependent on the faith of the producer in my film.”While stressing on the point that it is important to keep working for a filmmaker, Wolman said, “I don’t mind making bad films. I don’t take it seriously. It is important to keep working. I am not trying to make a masterpiece. The joy of making films is in the making of the film. I envision the film as I write the script. When I make films, I try to make it in the best manner possible.”
