Everything starts with a concept. Ask yourself these questions:
What's your story?
Why tell it?
What's the end goal?
How do you want people to feel?
Start here. Write it all down.
Using a tripod, gimbal, and a third-party app like Moment Pro Cam or FiLMiC Pro can elevate the feel of your film.
3. Communicate Your Idea
You know exactly what you’re trying to create with your short film, but, if you have others helping you on set, they might not. Remember to constantly communicate what you’re wanting to accomplish in terms of shots, mood, etc.
4. Be Flexible
As with most creative endeavours, some things just don’t go as planned. Stick to your plan as much as possible, but roll with the punches to make the best with what you have.
5. Post Production
Organization is key! Develop a workflow that keeps you organized to make every step of post-production efficient and headache-free.
