Let me introduce myself

My name is Jiří Fusek and I am an introverted self-taught filmmaker (specifically producer/director/editor) with a passion for sharing knowledge, technology and design.

I knew maybe 4 people in the whole city when I came to Prague to study Production at FAMU (5th oldest film school in the world). Kinda sucks, when your job is to make sure other students can produce their movies and you have no connections and no real knowledge of the city.

Fortunately, I had a few good friends who helped me in those first years here in Prague (thank you guys!), but still, it wasn’t easy, because for people like me – introverts who like to keep to themselves, enjoy quiet evening with a book or TV series in their home, it’s quite difficult to ask for a help.

Today, I work at FAMU, I got my own production company and I want to help aspiring filmmakers and students on their journey. And thanks to the internet and all that, I really can. This is my WHY, now let’s get to HOW.

Topics covered on the blog

I am a filmmaker and I work at FAMU – one of the oldest film schools in the world. Naturally, I will be sharing all the knowledge I have about filmmaking – from development through production & post-production all the way to marketing. Alongside with some templates you can use however you want.

You have to constantly receive information to learn and grow and get inspired, and in my free time I listen to some podcasts, I read quite a bit of different books, and watch even more movies and TV series. So why not share what I find interesting, inspire you a bit.

If you want to make a mark in the film industry, it’s not just about talent and hard work. It is a lot about you. One has to be a self-aware, confident, strong individual to not just survive, but thrive in such harsh, stressful and challenging environment. I’m here to help you become that person.

This one will be a step outside of my comfort zone. I am going to bring you interviews with some amazing people who have a lot to say and I have a lot to learn from them. From emerging producers & directors, successful actors to inspiring entrepreneurs.
