James Wan Offers Invaluable Advice for Aspiring Filmmakers

Last week, we shared a tweet from Men in Black scribe Ed Solomon (forwarded by Saw co-founder Leigh Whannell) that offered invaluable advice for aspiring filmmakers. Today, Whannell’s partner in crime, James Wan, has advice for anyone with dreams of filmmaking. It came during a sit-down the 21st Century Master of Horror gave in order to promote his upcoming feature, Aquaman.

“It’s so easy for you to just sort of make something and for it to be seen, right? Use your phone or get a little camera and just shoot something and put it together, I think that’s the best way, you know? The more you shoot, the more you write your scripts, the more you edit you just get better and better. And so, like they say, practice makes you better.”

Check out the synopsis and trailer for Aquaman below.

Aquaman finds himself caught between a surface world that ravages the sea and the underwater Atlanteans who are ready to revolt.

Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, and Nicole Kidman. Look for the film to swim into US theaters beginning December 21st.
