The director, best known for popular films such as Pengabdi Setan and Gundala, emphasized the importance of a director’s treatment at the start of the filmmaking process. “It is a guide for directors to describe a movie, consisting of camera movement, shot type, camera angle and story telling,” he said.

He added that the visual storytelling medium could cover shooting techniques, shot composition and choice of colors. “All can be done with the help of a smartphone, as long as we’re smart enough to utilize its features,” said Joko.

Other tips from Joko for up-and-coming filmmakers included a thorough understanding of the film’s script, creativity and a boldness in exploring camera angles, movements and deciding the tone of the movie.

The Galaxy Movie Studio classes are available on Samsung Indonesia's YouTube channel, with filmmakers Yandy Laurens and Sammaria Simanjuntak covering pre-production, production and post-production. (wng)
