Welcome to Sisters in Cinema Frequently Asked Questions.

I created this section because I receive many emails asking these same questions. So, I decided to provide the answers here for everyone. If you still have questions after having reviewed this section you can email your questions to me at ywelbon@sistersincinema.com.

Your Sister in Cinema,
Yvonne Welbon

Currently, Yvonne Welbon's favorite book on filmmaking is "What They Don't Teach You at Film School: 161 Strategies for Making Your Own Movie No Matter What" by Camille Landau and Tiare White.

"There are many ways to learn about filmmaking. Some people learn how to make films in elementary and high school. Some learn about filmmaking through weekend seminars and short courses. Some people decide to study for an undergraduate or graduate degree. Some people watch every film closely and read every book they can get their hands on about filmmaking.

Some people learn by doing, and being mentored by established filmmakers. There is no one right way to learn to be a filmmaker, but some combination of what is above is ideal if you want to be a successful filmmaker." -YW
