The toughest part in Media Courses is getting started.
By using my Digital Media Courses I can show how your start can be easier. Filmmaking for many filmmakers sit around all year waiting for everything to be perfect. Not you. The sooner you realize your movie will never be perfect the better. This frees you up to get started on an idea (any idea) and start making a movie.
I want to caution you this, when it comes to making a movie, there is a lot of crappy information out there. Let me show you how.
Write or obtain an awesome screenplay
Without a dazzlingly awesome screenplay actually you’re dead in the water. The beautiful lighting, the creative camerawork and the smooth editing are pointless if the story isn’t compelling to the audience.
The first and most important concept you need to take on board is the three-act structure:
Camera movement: equipment, techniques and best practices
Understand this is closely related to the camerawork issue, is in fact a part of it. With imaginative camera angles, the camera movement should be used to draw the audience into the story, remember that. This means the camera movement will be motivated by the action and by the characters, not simply by whether the actors are moving or not.
Record uncompromisingly high-quality location sound
Remember poor sound is a major weakness – maybe the major weakness – of independent films. Professionals, some, claim the audiences can put up with poor image quality if the story is good, but is it true? No they will never put up with poor sound. I am inclined to agree with this statement. Accordingly, you should take the sound recording issues very seriously.
