It’s a common belief that a thorough knowledge of movie making and the entertainment industry is enough to make you a successful movie producer. Nope.
Poor digital film production technique should only be seen in personal sex tapes and really bad wedding videos. Having digital phim quang cao equipment and software is worthless unless you learn the skills on how to use them like a savvy indie filmmaker. If you put in just a little effort and time to learn the basic core principals of digital film production your movie will be far better off for it. Like most areas of life, the more effort you put even the greater the results. For the short time I have your attention I am going to share with you some digital film production cornerstones that will make you a better filmmaker.
Matter of fact, if you already have a camera of some sort, why don’t you take a little break and go out and shoot something. Go ahead! I’ll still be here when you get back. Then we can talk story some more, but right now, go shoot!
When you use money from family, friends, your own money or film investors cash there is a much stronger sense to get the movie done in my opinion. No filmmaker wants to face family, friends or film investors and say they couldn’t finish the movie. Friends and family are always forgiving in the end, but you’ll still feel an emotional letdown if you can’t deliver a finished movie like you told them you would.
Businesses seem to be in love with presenting their ideas and presentations through Videos and/or Films. I personally love the way, Steve Jobs used to present his products and/or services to the world. The impact was always maximum and the results were phenomenal. You too can do the same.
As a cultural phenomenon, film traces the human need to tell stories back to our oral traditions. Aside from recording history, we all want to be entertained and we all want to hear a good story. If you are going to make a film, you have to have a great story and then be willing to run with it. Talk it up to everyone you know. Enlist the help of others and win them over to the cause of your film. Give your film a catchy name–one that will pop out of people’s mouths.
It is a myth that 35mm is a better quality. High Definition cameras are geared for all shooting conditions. High Definition cameras have an assortment of lenses and filters just like 35mm and 16mm cameras. Broadcasting stations want tapes anyway, so if you’ve shot on 35mm everything has to be converted to HD which is another added expense.
Always remember that sex and violence sells. You can do either one separately or mix the two of them together for your own special “chefs blend”. If you and your buds have girlfriends then you have “talent” for your movie. Maybe there is an old abandoned house out in the country where you live, where you can film your own horror film. Just remember to make sure that everyone is over 18 and has signed a release.
