THE CODE OF A FILMMAKER

1. I promise to create the best works I can, using the time, knowledge and tools I have available, and complete those works to the best of my ability.

2. I promise to not explain or make excuses for my work, but to improve my competence by learning and practicing my craft.

3. I promise to help others when I can with those things I know, and to not pretend I know something when I don’t.

4. I promise to not make less of my own or another’s work, and to not damage another filmmaker’s reputation or status.

5. I promise to give advice to those who ask for it, and to keep my advice constructive and helpful.

6. I promise to ignore and not engage those who are super-critical and irrational.

7. I promise to not condone the theft of another’s work, and will legally obtain, license and credit another’s work as required.

8. I promise to get the proper releases and permissions I need for my work as required.

9. I promise to treat those around me with respect, courtesy, and understanding, and to help them understand the film making process and its terminology.

10. I promise to not permit unauthorized photos, shots, sound recordings, or information given to me in confidence, to be passed on to anyone for any reason.

11. I promise to not condone any type of discrimination of any filmmaker because of race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, or national origin.

12. I promise to recognize and support Filmmakers, knowing their true intentions are to have their ideas brought into being, shared and enjoyed by others. #basicfilmmaker #filmmaking #videos
