I'll be posting a lot of videos on this blog of filmmaking tips and tricks. This is one of those...put together buy a young gentleman not much older than you who has embraced DIY filmmaking with a passion. Check out what he has to say...there's some good stuff in there!
A couple of key takeaways:
- Your first films will not be great. Don't let that get you down! Keep on making them and they will improve.
- Focus on the following key film elements in this order: Story > Audio > Lighting > Story.
- Make as many movies as you can. The more practice you get, the better!
Most importantly, have fun!
