Tips to Tips for how make films
Make it a micro Budget feature, that the script is written.
The need for a good script is a given thing. From a mediocre screenplay you can’t make a decent movie. But you need a script which fits with your budgetary limitations rather than fighting if you want to film a micro-budget movie. That naturally means avoiding car chases, lots of VFX and period parts. In addition, consider where the movie belongs on the market.
I’ll refute what I said just now, but even at a home base, you can’t get the whole film in only one spot or it will look micro-budgetary and sound visually stubborn. I certainly recommend a place in a home base, but you must get out as much as you can. We had luck on “The Big Ask” because the backyard of our house, while shooting in the desert, was a never-ending open area with mountains and ravine areas. And in a countryside we were able to visit huge places like pubs, hotels and, of course, national park of Joshua Tree (which offers the strangest moonscape any filmmaker could hope for).
Shoot after the opening of locations.
Shoot while open and does not owe you anything. Shoot while open. Naturally, you don’t monitor a place the same as yours and, naturally, that tip doesn’t fit on every scene, but how much I have got away with it I was surprised. In specific, we filmed “Mutual Friends,” while the companies operate normally, at a restaurant, yoga studios, cafes, emporium of products and other places. We were permitted to prevent issues by the owners beforehand, to find a quiet spot on the day and to play the scene with the actors (with a mic on their person).
Cast matters. A lot.
Examples of tiny, non-named Independent films come from none and are catapulting to big success. The exception is those films. You don’t need name stars to get distribution when you debut in Cannes. But “Cannes premiere” isn’t a big deal tactic.
When I sold my four films, I asked each sales representative or distributor first one question, “who’s there?” You need to focus on free advertising because the marketing budget is close to $0. (cost of the publicist aside). How does advertising work? Acceptable players. Tarry up. Have a good casting director. Get a good casting director.
