David Power is a multi-purpose creative pro based in Brooklyn, NY. Since moving to New York, he’s worked in music recording & production, written several business books, penned screenplays, and helped write and perform in comedy films. His latest project is a podcast documentary of how a feature film is made.

Our conversation covers creative practices and routines, as well as the often-nebulous world of film & video, including how to collaborate on a script and using crowdfunding to launch projects at scale.

Tools

Techniques

  • Soften the corners of a room to dampen reverb/echo
  • Develop characters first, give them a voice and backstory, and then place them into a three-act structure. (Or not).
  • Collect all notes and ideas; save them for later and vetting each one before writing
  • Build a project management software workflow that actually reflects the way you work
  • Don’t store files in Slack; that’s not the place for permanent items
  • Use Plain Text formatting as a universal standard
  • Build a Hackintosh if you can’t afford a Mac Pro (which you probably can’t)

Habits

  • Cross-promote, tag, and share your social links with your collaboration partners
  • Exercise first thing in the morning
  • Meditate, eat, drink coffee before starting work
  • Use a floating lunch hour
  • Wake up without an alarm
  • Don’t actively seek out news (minus industry happenings)
