About MUST SEE FILMS


My name is Darren Foley and I am a self taught filmmaker based in Scotland. This channel is a by-product of my own study of film. As I document my journey I aim to share educational and entraining video essays that really dig into why films work. These can range from in-depth film analysis, deconstructing the narrative of a film and exploring filmmaking techniques.


Patreon is a platform that lets you directly support the work of creators. You can select an amount that will be charged on the release of each new video.

Running this channel does have some small logistical costs like web hosting, domain names, voice over equipment etc but I love creating these videos and engaging with other like-minded people through the channel that I would do it for free. The support from Patreon really just covers my time. Making these videos is a full-time job and I already have a full-time job and a family so I am constantly navigating the balance of creating and stealing time whenever I can.

For every video; I watch the film multiple times, takes notes, research, read the screenplay, write multiple drafts of the transcript, record the audio, mix the sound, gather footage and music, edit, upload, create personalised thumbnails and then try to share and promote the video after its release. So it does end up being a very time consuming process, however I enjoy it and I’m always trying to get better with each videos. 


Their really seems to be a huge appetite for film out there and I love when these videos can reach other like-minded people. Thank you to anyone who has ever watched a video, shared a comment or became someone who I can talk 'film' with. 

Thanks
-Darren
