How To Create An Amateur Film


Many professionals started off making short, eye-catching films, and getting them on TV in slots dedicated to amateurs.

You too can do the same, but there is a lot of competition. Many create a technically very good film, but the script is flimsy and prevents them being successful.

Here's what to do:

- break your script down into individual shots so as there is a strong relationship between the script and what is shown on camera

- rehearse camera movements intensively

- think about the relationship between the mood of the scene and the camera angle used: which is most appropriate? Extreme close up or a distant shot to show remoteness?

- think about using special effects when editing to jazz it up and get that professional touch, BUT do not go overboard!
