A Film Maker’s Manifesto

By Jessamyn Prince

I promise..

To always be a slave to my art, not my bills, and to always consider myself an artist, never a businessman.

To treat everyone magnanimously, and give credit where it’s due.

To always admit what I do know, but more importantly what I don’t, and to encourage collaboration on all my sets.

To not allow egos or contracts to degrade the artistic integrity of my work.

To make well rounded movies, where no aspect is neglected.

To give the audience a satisfying ending, where they learn and hopefully come out slightly changed for the better.

Qualities I will strive for in all my work:

High Production Value

Elegant detail

Subtle subtext

Narrative Depth

Appreciate and Respect the Female Form

Surrealism & Expressionism

Use of Negative Space & Framing

Bright/Vivid Color

Complex Characters

Textually Rich Locations

A Touch of Magic
